Exchange Building
Wellington, New Zealand

Mapped was the finale event in an empty wooden floored store and foyer in the Exchange Building. Glass windows on three sides provided ample opportunity for an interactive layering of images to occur as audience wandered in from the street, watched from neighboring restaurants and performers extended their play beyond the confines of the room.

Documentation, photos, text, slides, maps and drawings were exhibited. Everything marked and measured. Piles of rocks, road markings, an improvised surveyors trig and orange cones demarcating the space. On the wall behind the performers was projected a video edit of our adventures around the city. In an attempt to embrace some of what we had collected and learned, dressed in white we worked through three sets of forty five minute sections of material, a parade out into the streets, Tuning scores, jumper catcher games, group sculpture and simple closing.

Performers: Andy Irving, Bronwyn Haywood, Chris Jackson, Eileen Watson, Karen Daly, Katie Regalsford, Michelle Powles, Olive Bieringa, Pietr Roncevich, Sumara Fraser, Tony Wolf
