Into the Arms of my Coloniser

20 October 2020

Into the Arms of my Coloniser (2016) by Christopher Ulutupu, has opened in the Dunedin Public Art Gallery’s Rear Window Gallery (located on Moray Place).

This work playfully explores the topic of intercultural dating, enacting the theme through a series of theatrical and musical numbers. Players dance, lounge or strut their stuff alongside soulful performances of classic tunes by the likes of Daniel Ray Costello and Britney Spears.

The screening will run until 13 December 2020.

The proposal must be for a single-channel moving image work, can include sound (only operating between 6am and 11pm), and a screening fee will be negotiated.
