Coven is a spatial-activation performance art group hailing from the rich, dark caves of feminine wisdom. Through celebratory party rituals and the sweatiness of their dancing chocolate bodies, Coven destroys the stiff colonial tones that persist on being present in all majoritarian spaces.

One Million Stars
Tuesday 7 – Friday 17 February, 11am – 4pm
Symbols of light and solidarity, this project by Maryann Talia Pau encourages us to weave stars to end violence, bullying and racism.
Join the Hot Brown Honeys in Aotea Square in February to be part of this international weaving movement and create your own star. Your star will tour with the Honeys and later join one million other stars for an installation at the 2018 Commonwealth Games.
The One Million Stars project is an opportunity for us to bring light and hope into the world and to make something beautiful and powerful together.
