Sasha Alba: Objects I Hold
Saturday, 6 August - Tuesday, 30 August
10:00 - 16:00

Opening: Saturday 6 August 2-4pm

Given the increased importance of our home environments in recent times, Sasha Alba has carried out studies of domestic objects familiar to many living in Aotearoa. The items within these still life paintings tend to have feminine forms, mirroring the changes the artist is experiencing with pregnancy. Her artistic objective is to preserve and value collective memories of our domestic spheres, building a painterly record of the private, interior world many women inhabit in parallel to their public working lives.

Hapori: Members Show 2022
Saturday, 6 August - Tuesday, 30 August
10:00 - 16:00

Opening: Saturday 6 August 2-4pm

Depot Artspace is delighted to be inviting entries to its annual Member’s show in August this year, titled Hapori (community) to signify the embrace of our immediate and extended collective of creative individuals. Each year our Member’s show brings an exciting array of various media, styles, subject matter and personality.

For Members seeking inspiration in the lead-up to Hapori, here is something to get the juices flowing:
When you think of hapori, or community, what comes to mind? Is it your wider network of peers or your close whānau? The suburb you live in? The things you miss when travelling? Perhaps it is a community of individuals who share a niche interest or personal experience with you, whether this is a local ceramic group or friends from overseas. Is it your local coffee shop? Your neighbours? The bird life that fills your garden?

Welcome to Hellansville - the chance of an 'after'-life time
Wednesday, 14 September - Friday, 16 September
20:00 - 21:15


That I Theatre Company proudly presents 'Welcome To Hellansville', a hilarious yet thought-provoking one act play written by James Carrick and directed by Liz Cannon. This dark comedy premieres at The Rose Centre, Belmont as part of the 2022 Auckland Fringe Festival.

Heaven and Hell need a re-set. Overcrowding has reached critical mass in both after-life options, so a more selective approach is urgently required. As undecided souls can no longer be accommodated in Heaven or Hell, God and Satan have collaborated on a new project to remove the non-believers from their respective operations. Hellansville is a shiny, new development designed to meet the needs of an increasingly secular society who have shuffled off this mortal coil but have nowhere to go. Before the project goes live, the top representatives from both sides meet to discuss the issues at hand; Michael the effortlessly cool Archangel and Malphas a powerful demon in a crumpled suit. Together they thrash out the details of Hellansville under the watchful eye of the mysterious Maureen. 

Enter Robert, the recently deceased guineapig. All Michael and Mal have to do is sell Robert the Hellansville dream. All Robert has to do is sign up for the deal of an ‘after’-life time. All Robert has to do is believe. A tough ask for a cynical, stubborn atheist.

Starring Jimmy Carrick, Ben Plummer, Suzy Sampson and Duncan Preston, the play delves into one of humanity's darkest questions, "Where do we go when we die?" Join the Angel, the Demon and the Atheist as they battle with their varying opinions on what is, what was and what could be, all under the watchful, omnipotent eye of the mysterious Maureen. 

Hilarious and highly tongue-in-cheek musings abound, with 'Hellansville - the chance of an after-life time' offered as a solution to the issues faced by Heaven, Hell and the world in general; overcrowding, all the wrong souls and far too many vegans.  

'Welcome to Hellansville' will be performed at The Rose Centre, Belmont, North Shore on Wed 14th, Thurs 15th and *Fri 16th Sept 2022 at 8pm. 
*The final show will include a post-show cheese and wine event where you are invited to a Q&A session with the writer and director.
