Blue Oyster Performance Series: dolphins and pearls : Dunedin Fringe Festival

Blue Oyster Performance Series: dolphins and pearls

Visual Art Sound/Audio Digital/Online

Tui Vutu. Saturday 26 March, 3pm, Online.

dolphins and pearls presents a collection of love songs from shapeshifter Tui Vutu to Tokairahe, son of gods Tui Lakeba and Liku Cava. This work pays tribute to Tui’s retrieval of Tokairahe’s shell necklace, an act of devotion in which he chased down and faced Dakuwaqa, the mighty Shark God. This online audio visual experience will be released on Saturday 26th March via Blue Oyster’s website.

Tui Vutu is the moniker of J, an artist based in Tāmaki Makaurau. Raised in Te Whanganui-a-Tara and Naarm, J hails to Levuka, Fiji. Moving between club and experimental sounds, they explore expansiveness within hardware confines, the rawness and severity of a drum machine offering J the means to express.

Blue Oyster Performance Series is an annual showcase of experimental and interdisciplinary performance. This experimental performance is part of Dunedin Fringe Festival and supported by Creative New Zealand.
