Due to New Zealand moving to RED under the COVID-19 Protection Framework, the live performance of ArteFact: How to Behave in a Museum has been cancelled, but the show will be presented online as a digital premiere.

“Wherever we work, no matter what we do, we must not resist that sudden urge to break into interpretative dance.”

That’s the statement that has inspired Ross McCormack (New Zealand Arts Laureate) to draw inspiration from the people who work at the Auckland War Memorial Museum Tāmaki Paenga Hira, creating this new work which will premiere digitally at the Auckland Arts Festival in 2022.

From the visitor hosts to the security team, the iconic Tāmaki Makaurau building offers rabbit holes of possibility. You never know who might be leading you on a journey of whimsy and where they may take you.

The majestic nature of the Museum’s architecture, the artefacts that are housed within and the tireless work of those that run it open up beguiling portholes of imagination to the inner lives of the Museum’s people with McCormack using elements of physical theatre and comedy interwoven with his core methodology and style of movement.

Featuring NZDC performers Carl Tolentino, Chrissy Kokiri, Katie Rudd, Ngaere Jenkins, Kosta Bogoievski, and Katrina Bastian.

Suitable for ages 8+
