Dreamed up by choreographer/director Malia Johnston, RUSHES is a collaboration with Eden Mullholland (music), John Verryt (scenic design), Rowan Pierce (AV design) and Jo Kilgour (lighting design) hosted by Auckland Live.

The result is the transformation of the Aotea Centre’s Lower NZI convention centre into a temporary “art gallery” of 11 living artworks in separate spaces featuring a rich hybrid of live dance and music, sculpture and projected imagery.

None of the installations remains the same for more than a few seconds. You can linger and absorb, move on slowly or rapidly, take a quick tour to find the most entrancing room and settle in there, or keep on circling until the last minutes when the (temporary) walls threaten to come down.
