Future Hotel is an artistic partnership between Stephen Bain & Nisha Madhan, whose acts of public intervention alter all known futures. By actively subverting the present, Future Hotel creates a dynamic void that unexpected futures may fall into.
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.
