WINNER – Best in Outdoor (NZ Fringe Awards)

FUTURE HOTEL presents IQ2 (Intimate Questions 2)

SUITABLE FOR ANYONE WITH EARS.

Are you an introvert or extrovert?

Are you a dreamer or a schemer?

Are you more good looking than most people you know?

Are you looking for someone?

Have you been waiting for someone who will take you into the future?

Find your answers at IQ2, Future Hotel’s latest public and private personality test.

IQ2 is a group questionaire and public happening. Participants answer a series of questions with simple movements creating a human pie chart of the personal, moral, and futuristic statistics of the group.

We have 20 sets of wireless headphones. Put them on. Listen and respond. Meet strangers.

Take a breath.
Think of the future.
Begin.

COLLABORATORS: Nisha Madhan, Stephen Bain & Jeff Henderson

The Mourners Return

February 5, 2013 |  by  |  Performance, Uncategorized  |  Share

Let the Mourners take your sadness, grievances, misery and complaints and transform them into joy!
Inside the Wailing Chamber the All Seeing Ocular Oracle presides over the Ritual of Grievance Transformation.
Here you will pierce the Tear of Sorrow and release your grief in a cathartic, uplifting ceremony!
Can I see another’s woe, and not be in sorrow too? Can I see another’s grief, and not seek for kind relief?

THE WAILING CHAMBER showing TOMORROW, THURSDAY 6 FEBRUARY @ TE PAPA, Wellington
