Tautai Contemporary Pacific Arts Trust’s annual moving image and live performance event OffStage provides a platform for promising contemporary Pacific voices in time based formats. This year’s iteration has a focus on personalised narratives, bringing together works with a variety of concerns such as gender, distance, the body, labour, knowledge and embodied trauma (September 3-15).

Curated by Louisa Afoa at Artspace in Auckland, Offstage 7 include Sosefina Andy, Jermaine Dean, Shivanjani Lal, Valasi Leota-Seiuli, Pilimilose Manu, Talia Smith, Matavai Taulangau, Kelsi Tulafono, Cora-Allan Wickliffe

Offstage 7 provides a unique opportunity to experience a snapshot of Pacific dialogues through time based practices. The emphasis here though is that being of Pacific descent is a personal experience that should not be generalised.  

OFFSTAGE Public Programme
Opening: Saturday September 3, performances 6pm-8pm
Book Launch, Gina Cole’s book of short stories Black Ice Matter: Friday September 9, 6pm-8pm
Artist talks: Wednesday September 14, 6pm-8pm
