About the Walk

Buildings allow us to see the world from a fixed position, but what happens when we are no longer tied to one place? Human powered and always on the move, The Drifting Room views the city as a vast stage with a cast of thousands.

Join an intimate group of travellers as they transform the environment, one description at a time, into a world not yet seen. The Drifting Room is a fiction machine, larger on the inside than it is on the outside, lingering in the cracks between fiction and reality.

Your host, Stephen Bain, will guide you on this journey.

Stephen grew up in the Wairarapa and lives in Auckland, he makes performances for public spaces including audio walks, theatrical shows and installations, many of which are made with the public as participants. He is currently interested in ideas about social thinking and how group action affects ordinary spaces.

The Drifting Room was developed in collaboration with Solomon Holly-Massey and Sarah-Jane Blake, with assistance from Creative New Zealand.
