Experimental Artivism

I am a freelance theatre professional based in Palmerston North New Zealand and an associate member of Musical Theatre New Zealand. I now spend the majority of my time working with registered charities in communities throughout New Zealand to deliver community-based non-professional theatre projects with the broad goal of creating community resilience and inspiring social change.

In our age there is no such thing as ‘keeping out of politics.’ All issues are political issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia.

In a decaying society, art, if it is truthful, must also reflect decay.
And unless it wants to break faith with its social function,
art must show the world as changeable.
And help to change it.
— Ernst Fischer - Austrian Poet
