WIDance invites you to experience inclusive dance and visual art intertwined into a sensory tapestry of textural sight, sound and touch.

The Art of Observation, as part of the 2020 fringe festival, is a koha event at the New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts, and runs from Friday 6th to Sunday 8th of March. 

The Art of Observation is a site-specific event presented by WIDance, is inspired by the architecture of the Academy of Fine Arts and selected artworks in the 28th Annual Wallace Art Awards NZAFA Exhibition, and plays on the theme of observation. 

Leading the audience on a playful movement exploration of the relationship between art, the artist, and the audience, WIDance turns visual art appreciation inside out, telling stories and exploring deeper themes of the artworks and the architecture that holds them through movement and audience participation.

By offering alternate perspectives through textural layers of sight, sound, and touch, audiences will see and appreciate their surroundings afresh.

The Art of Observation aims to dissolve the invisible line between artist and audience, ability and disability, and encourage accessibility in the arts through dance, integrated audio description, and audience inclusion.

The Art of Observation will be a relaxed accessible performance. 

Times: 6, 7, 8 March 6pm. 7, 8 March 2pm.
