Production Details

The Basement and Auckland Fringe present:


By Alexa Wilson

21 Movements presents as an interactive solo piece, Pecha Kucha style, performative responses by 2011 Auckland Fringe multiple award winner and choreographer Alexa Wilson and at moments audience members to photographs by collaborator Nicholas Watt, which interpretively map major events in the 21st Century. It will collectively and subjectively remember and embody defining 21st Century events.

Artist’s awards include:
Tup Lang Award CNZ for Toxic White Elephant Shock 2008
Best Emerging Contemporary Choreographer for Magic Box 2004 – NZ Listener
4 Auckland Fringe Awards for Weg: A-Way 2011

21 Movements has been performed already in Europe in 40 minute version – at Manifesta 11 in Zurich at Cabaret Voltaire (Contemporary Art Biennale).

“Alexa has bravely shaped her own intrinsic voice. 
She targets our conceits and the rough, untidy journey she takes us on is always perceptive and unsettling. 
Fulfilling a vital role of the artist, she is always a force to be reckoned with.”

— Francesca Horsley, NZ Listener

21 Movements reflects on torrid 21st century

Review by Raewyn Whyte 10th Mar 2017

21 Movements, an interactive work by Berlin-based Kiwi performance artist Alexa Wilson, offers another chance for Auckland Fringe audiences to get involved with what they’re watching.

This time, we’re asked to think about memories and emotions connected to significant global events of the 21st century. Structured like a Pecha Kucha event, it references 22 such events, giving 2.5 minutes to each one.
