MAP Presents ‘Underside’

28 May 2022 3:00pm - 8:00 pm
/ MAP presents 'Underside - a collaboration between Anna Bate, Demarnia Lloyd, Stewart Lloyd-Harris and the Christchurch City Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetū.
The Carpark, Christchurch City Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetū., 316 Montreal Street

For MAP’s fourth Community Choreographic Project, choreographer Anna Bate, in collaboration with sound artist Demarnia Lloyd, and lighting designer Stuart Lloyd-Harris, have created a multidisciplinary and site-based performance at the Christchurch City Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetū titled, Underside.

These collaborators and a company of community dancers will generate a performance that ricochets off static displays of sculptural figures created by visual artist Francis Upritchard. The performances will take place in the car park beneath the gallery and will play out as a divergent choreographic catalogue of an artist’s collection.

In keeping with ideas that underpin Upritchard’s art, a science fiction feel will permeate the choreography. Real fake futures of sculptural figures will be enacted, creating what could be described as, an animated science fiction flipbook!

Underside looks at an alternative approach to archiving the work that galleries exhibit.

Please be in touch with accessibility needs.

Full COVID-19 protocols as per current government guidelines will be in place. Door sales available.

This event might be in a carpark BUT we encourage you to travel to this event via foot, pedal, or public transport.
