The weekend is here and you're looking for something to do! We've got it sorted. Spend the weekend at The Performance Arcade working through these 10 must do's:
1. Contemplate fate and fortune.
Seek good fortune in Lucy Marinkovich's work Good Good Fortune.
2. Eat oysters and drink frosés.
This year our International Partners The Bolton Hotel are back with their third culinary performance at the Arcade "OH SHUCKS!". Can you think of better way to spend your Saturday than sipping a Leftfield Frosé and indulging in Bluff oysters? We sure can't...
3. Check out the latest issue of the Live Press.
This year we've got 13 writers issuing live presses twice a day. With copies printed hot off the press available at our shop and online!
4. Find all of our light boxes.
There are 10 large and 8 small performance art quotes lit up around the Arcade. Try and find all 18 and share your favorite with us!
5. Attend a Mistranslation Laboratory workshop.
Take part in a whimsical work with Eleventeen Collective and attempt almost impossible objectives such as "rainbow taming". Drop by or book ahead at email@example.com or mistranslationlaboratory.wordpress.com
6. Listen to some live music.
All weekend long we've got a packed line up of live music happening at the Arcade.
7. Grab a drink at our pop up bar.
At the Arcade bar we have something for everyone! Cold Tuatara beer, a crisp apple cider from Three Wise Birds. A range of Leftfield wines. Delicious juices from Karma Cola, fizzy Six Barrel Sodas. And you're able to enjoy the artworks with a drink in hand! So civilized!
8. Read Miss Brill.
Sit on a park bench read this short classic by Katherine Mansfield. Apparently best enjoyed sitting at the park bench provided with live music in the background!
9. Shoot a man for a good cause.
Brazilian artist Victor de la Roque is here addressing the plight of indigenous activists and NGO workers at the hands of Brazilian police forces. His work The Amazônia Is Not Here invites passers by to shoot him with a paintball gun for $20 a shot.
10. Take a walk with words.
Wroughtings by Tim Brennan, reflects on the public inscriptions located around Wellington Waterfront. If you've strolled along our waterfront before, you've definitely seen them, but not quite like this. His next walk is March 18th - meet outside Wagamama.
BONUS: Spend the afternoon here and watch the Arcade transform from day to night!
