The Performance Arcade 2011, Wellington
THE PERFORMANCE ARCADE
FEBRUARY 24-27, 2011
The inaugural Performance Arcade featured 20 artists from the Wellington performing arts community and lower North Island. During the four days of the event over 5000 people visited the Arcade and interacted with the works. In her article ‘New Art Genre’ for Eye Contact, reviewer Sophie Jerram said of the event “the Arcade’s ability to engage an audience en masse, whilst maintaining the integrity of the work, felt like an extraordinary breakthrough for Wellington” (read the full review here). Other reviewers praised the “beauty of the way it has been curated” and the immediacy of the encounter with live performance that it offers (read here).
