A multi-sensory installation, Between the Dog and the Wolf unfolds at dusk when the slowly fading light finds two young adults shut in a room in a summer house. In an interweaving of visual and aural systems of illusion, actors who never appear are heard speaking and moving among the audience, and an everyday scene takes on an otherworldly quality as it explores the unstable relationship between the world as it is and as we perceive it.
When darkness falls see Te Oro become the site for a projection by Tom Bogdanowicz that references local graffiti artists both past and present.

This entrancing installation engages all senses, provoking enquiry into the nature of our existence.

Dark, stylish, and captivating, Heavenly Creatures came from screen writer Fran Walsh’s long fascination with the Parker-Hulme case where two teenagers who invented imaginary worlds and wrote under imaginary personas murdered Pauline Parker’s mother in June 1954. The film received Oscar nominations, deals with Miramax and signaled the debut of Kate Winslet, Melaine Lynskey and the arrival of Peter Jackson as more than just a cult director.
