Mr Sterile Assembly – Hamilton Fringe Festival 2011

   |   Meeting place / Huihuinga   |   Moving IMage   |   

Art danger BOOM! 2011 was the biggest fringe festival ever and offered a smorgasbord of roving entertainment including theatre, poetry, exhibitions, film, music and one or two things that don’t quite fit any of the usual categories. Mr Sterile Assembly was definitely the latter.

A melange of social critique of New Zealand’s security agencies, art works, theatre performance and punk rock, Mr Sterile Assembly appears here in one of Hamilton’s pop up art spaces in the Riverbank mall, on Victoria Street. Performing on the same day as a rugby world cup match the streets were eerily empty, which made sounds coming out of that space take on a life of their own.
