Dannii Kellett & Knot Theatre
(Pōneke / Wellington)
Creative Team: Dannii Kellett, Georgia Kellett, Felix Crossley-Pritchard & Anna Barker
A soft breeze drifts through the space with the scent of fresh grass.
Nature is alive, aboard a vessel built for industrialisation.
The pandemic took hold of the ways we operate – a momentarily pause in our evermoving human network.
As the world hit a lockdown – everyday life stood still. Our environment found a window of opportunity and began to heal. In mere months tremendous environmental changes have started to occur in our air and water quality, rewilding our cities, rivers and oceans. In the same moment, communities around the world experienced the most severe weather conditions in living memory.
Do we embrace the paradigm shift?
10am - 10pm, 17-20 & 24-27 Feb | Te Whanganui-a-Tara (behind Te Papa) | FREE
