Performance Art Week Aotearoa (PAWA) is thrilled to be returning to Aotearoa this spring! Touring Aotearoa, our first stop is RAMP Gallery in Kirikiriroa Hamilton. PAWA will be presenting enormousface aka Kalan Shh!(Cascadia/NYC), Tomasz Szrama (Poland/Finland) and Leafa Wilson/Olga Krause (New Zealand/Samoa).
The performance evening will showcase works that are challenging, engaging, and meaningful, an evening full of unique experiences! Due to the nature of the art form, artists and the public should expect the unexpected!
We are very lucky to have a line-up of internationally acclaimed artists, both international and local who will be presenting work. Kalan Shh! is a puppeteer and a performance artist who has been described by New York Magazine as “NYC’s Most Avant-Garde Nihilist Subway Performer”, Kalan Shh!’s work is unlike anything you would’ve seen before. Tomasz Szrama is one of the most prolific performance artists in the world, and primarily works with his surroundings and audiences to create chaotic and meaningful performances “My art is in a constant flux between sincerity, humour, and complete despair. I am frantically trying to capture the essence of a situation, a state of mind.” – Tomasz Szrama. Leafa Wilson/Olga Krause is a performance artist and curator who plays with identity performing as ‘Olga Krause’ her birth name and an embodiment of colonisation. Leafa Wilson works with the subtle energies and contexts of a situation to deeply enthral audiences.
Please join us for an evening of performance art at RAMP Gallery starting at 5 pm, drinks and snacks will be provided!
*Nudity and adult themes may be included in some performances.
