Please join CUZZIN$ aka Ruby Solly (Kāti Māmoe, Kāi Tahu, Waitaha) and Zak Argabrite (Cherokee descent) as they perform an improvisation based on the journey of the Waimapihi stream as it flows from the mountains to the sea, along a chalk map of Waimapihi drawn from Victoria St underpass entry to Left Bank and meandering through to the gallery.
This performance will feature ngā taonga pūoro (traditional Māori instruments) as well as saxophone to personify and give voice to he awa tūpuna, and the road that she now flows beneath. After following the stream path through the arcade into the exhibition, Zak and Ruby will wānanga on how elements, landscape, and whakapapa play in to music making within an indigenous context including the whakapapa of Kāti Māmoe to the Waimapihi stream.
Please gather outside Enjoy Contemporary Art Space in The Left Bank Arcade at 6pm for CUZZIN$ performance.
Hot drinks and kai will be served in the gallery afterward.
Masks are required indoors unless eating/drinking, in which case please be mindful of social distancing.
