Ariā: Juanita Hepi
Responding to Heather Straka's Isolation Hotel, multidisciplinary artist Juanita Hepi brings a new site-responsive interarts work to Canterbury Museum.
Hepi will respond to Straka's work using her body, movement and voice.
Juanita Hepi (Kāi Tahu, Ngāti Wai, Moriori, Ngāti Kahungunu, Ngāpuhi) is a multidisciplinary storyteller exploring the intersections of race, class and gender through indigenous storytelling and cross-cultural collaborations. She has performed on stages across Aotearoa; The Court Theatre, Auckland Theatre Company, Bats and Shakespeare’s Globe in London. Juanita holds a Masters of Māori and Indigenous Leadership with Distinction, a Graduate Diploma of teaching and Learning and a Bachelor of Arts from Toi Whakaari, the NZ Drama School.
She is a constant advocate for the arts and artists in Ōtautahi because this is the place her ancestors have battled, made love and settled for centuries.
