Trans ways of making: a Panel discussion

1pm, Sunday, 23 October

No booking required

Join artists Jack Trolove, Tāwhanga Nopera, val smith and Louie Zalk-Neale as they discuss the ways in which 'trans-ness’ or ‘between-ness’ can be a dynamic methodology for making creative work.

val smith (Pākehā, they/them) is a choreographic artist. Their work explores socio-political dimensions of queerness and transness through performance, critical somatics and friendship-based collaborative practice.

Tāwhanga Nopera (Te Arawa, Tainui, Ngāpuhi) creates through performance and digital image, to assert mahi raranga and the eternal threads of takatāpuitanga that bind whakapapa Māori.

Louie Zalk-Neale (Ngāi Te Rangi, Pākehā) works in experimental performance and video, embracing the power of body adornment to affirm their takatāpuitanga.

Jack Trolove (Pākehā) paints the tension between embodiment and untethering; creating work to uplift states of in-between-ness. His latest exhibition Thresholding is currently showing at Pātaka Art + Museum.
