“Storm the gates, grab hands with each other, run like red rovers at the lifeguard chairs, snarl at the bases like wild starving beast dogs, boost each other up those watchtowers and pull those motherf***ers down.” – Jill Soloway
“…painting is not made to decorate apartments. It’s an offensive and defensive weapon against the enemy.” – Pablo Picasso
Amidst the struggle to get work made and seen, is our filmmaking becoming too polite? Is it enough to take the role of pleaser rather than disruptor?
Dramaturg and coach Brita McVeigh leads a conversation with a panel of NZ storytellers about the role of art and artist in the tumultuous times we find ourselves in.
Writer/director Tearepa Kahi (POI E, MT ZION), writer/director Daniel Borgman (LOVING PIA, THE WEIGHT OF ELEPHANTS) novelist Emily Perkins (THE REHEARSAL, NOT HER REAL NAME) and theatre/performance artist Julia Croft talk to Brita McVeigh about how the changing political world around us is impacting the way they approach their work.
Join us and our friends at The Basement, Thursday March 23, 5pm drink, 5:30-6:30 talk, $5 koha appreciated.
Stay afterwards to keep talking and for a slice of pizza on us!
