About TINY FEST

I te tau 2019 i ara ake a Ōtautahi Tiny Performance Festival hei hui taurima hou, hei tuāpapa, hei whare mō ngā mātanga Toi me ōna iwi mātakitaki o te ‘Apōpō’ ki Ōtautahi nei.

Ko tā ‘Tiny’ he whakatairanga ake i te mana kōrero, te mana ao tūroa me te mana tangata mā te whakakotahitanga o ngā iwi ki te whakanui i te tuakiri tangata me te kōtui anō i te taura tangata.

Ōtautahi Tiny Performance Festival emerged in 2019 to be a new kind of festival, a platform and a community hub for the next wave of performance makers and audiences in Ōtautahi.

Tiny Fest creates space for mana kōrero, mana ao tūroa, and mana tangata, by bringing people together to celebrate difference and the ways we are all interconnected.

MANA KŌRERO. MANA AO TŪROA. MANA TANGATA.

INĀ KA KITEA Ē KOE. KA TĀEA Ē KOE.
IF YOU CAN SEE IT. YOU CAN BE IT.

E whakatairanga ana i ngā ahurea hou o Aotearoa, ko Tiny he waka e eke panuku ai ngā mahi a ngā pūkenga toi hei whakaatu atu i ngā mahi tūturu, taketake, tuakiri hoki, ā, hei whakanui i te wairua o Ōtautahi. 

He mea whakaoraora a Tiny i ngā mahi Toi hei whakapātaritari whakaaro me te wero tangata, i waihangatia mai ē Janaína Moraes hei kōrerorero, hei whakapuaki wānanga mō ngā take matua me ngā take o te wā. Mā te whakangahau e whai wāhi atu ai te titiro ki te ao hurihuri me te rapa i te toi ora mō te tangata.

Featuring contemporary performance from around Aotearoa, Tiny Fest is a platform for progressive performance makers to showcase raw, real, and radical art, and to celebrate the spirit of Ōtautahi. 

Tiny Fest is a curated, thought-provoking, and challenging performance programme, designed by Artistic Director, Janaína Moraes, to spark kо̄rero and support wānānga about urgent global and contemporary issues. Performance plays a vital role in opening up space to reflect on society and ways of making a difference.

EXPERIMENTAL. INNOVATIVE. BRAVE.

My current goal is to find a way to participate in any situation, with care and respect. I can relate this to an interest in community and the challenge of how to navigate being together without clinging to the habits, inscribed beliefs and blindspots of the past.
