    Exhibition Details



    Offstage is Tautai Contemporary Pacific Arts Trust’s annual moving image and live performance event held in partnership with Artspace NZ. In its 8th iteration, Offstage continues its legacy of offering a space for experimentation and play. Using Hawaiki and the common whakapapa between Maori and Pacific peoples as a prompt, our artists have created works that speak to the Polynesian experience within Aotearoa.
