Blood Water Earth performances
Blood Water Earth performances

Blood Water Earth is a ritual, an embodied incantation, traversing sacred alignments from cosmos to womb to whenua. Weaving performance, video, and music, it channels the ancestral, elemental, and the dream, awakening pre-colonial knowledges.

Titirangi Festival of Music: NZTrio
Titirangi Festival of Music: NZTrio

To experience top-notch classical musicianship - minus the formalities - catch NZTrio: The Americas performing live at Te Uru Waitakere Contemporary Gallery on Sunday March 31st as part of the Titirangi Festival of Music.

Ashley Brown (cello) welcomes back Andrew Beer (violin) and Stephen De Pledge (piano) for a ripper of a programme with elements of New York nightlife, the wild west, jazzy blues, plus a liberal dose of spice from south o’ the border. It’s classical music, but it’s wearing boots to the party so dress casual, bring a compadre, and enjoy the ride.
