They come from far away is a live performance series featuring a mixture of visiting artists from Finland, Germany, the UK, across Aotearoa and other places. The series will explore notions of the familiar/unfamiliar, being alien/belonging, being foreign/local and being seen/unseen.

Co-curated by Leena Kella (Finland), Christopher Hewitt (Germany), with Titirangi’s Mark Harvey, the series will be situated in locations around the surrounding environment, in addition to the main gallery. Live performances will be accompanied by video screenings and public talks.
