event Details

To celebrate Gilbert & George: The Tāmaki Makaurau Exhibition 2022, we are delighted to offer a unique performance art workshop at the Gallery. Discover a new way of seeing, thinking and feeling in this character development workshop, perhaps even finding your own form of ‘living sculpture’. Be bold, brave and embrace your imagination!  

In this exciting and dynamic course, participants will develop characters and scenes through a series of games and exercises that encourage exploration of movement, rhythms and emotions. 

This course is suitable for beginners as well as experienced actors.
