Performance artists to build a show from scratch

Māpura Studios is starting a new performance art group bringing together many different forms of art-making.

Based at St Lukes in central Auckland, Māpura Studios offers art programmes and art therapy programmes for people living with physical and intellectual disabilities.

The classes, which start Saturday 4 August, will run for 10 weeks. They are family friendly and all existing and new students are welcome.

The group will work towards creating a performance from scratch. Participants will write a play, make the costumes and scenery, and add music and performance. This will be performed at the Māpura Studios Open Day and the Interacting Festival later this year.
