New Zealand Performance Festival New York – March 12 – March 29, 2015

March 12, 2015 – March 29, 2015

A FESTIVAL OF NEW PERFORMANCE FROM AOTEAROA, NEW ZEALAND

This exciting program of performances by groundbreaking artists from Wellington, New Zealand, provides an alternative view of a country that occupies the American consciousness with myths of a clean-green nation and the Lord of the Rings film franchise. This special festival of innovative works shares new perspectives on the world, from the other side of the world, made in a reverse-time zone, made in the dream-factory, from a land that works while you sleep.
