The Performance Arcade brings together visual arts and performance in a specially curated ‘exhibition-event’ of live art practices on Wellington Waterfront. An arrangement of shipping containers and scaffold structures provides a temporary architecture for this unique project, housing a bar space, a programme of live music and events, and new performance installations by NZ and International artists. Open 13 hours a day, this event is free to the Wellington public.

PRESENTED BY No.99
This documentary film tells the story of a production that theatricalised the whole Estonian society and won the Golden Triga at the Prague Quadrennial 2015. NO75 Unified Estonia Assembly was a fictitious political movement created by Theatre NO99 that a large portion of the public treated as a real political force with the support of 20% of the population . The project combined performing arts, politics, media and civil society. From the first press conference to the founding assembly, Unified Estonia was followed by a film team that documented the project. A short 12 minute version of this video will be played in the Arcade, with tutorial videos on how to win an election that were broadcast during the project.
SPECIAL SCREENING of the full feature will be shown at 6pm on THURSDAY 3rd March, at Nga Taonga: Sound & Vision. With public forum and Q+A after.
