In Wellington from 24-28 July, Jadranka and Antonella will lead the week-long workshop "Performing Space", culminating in the public performance installation "The Shifting Mirror" on the evening of Friday 28 July. This workshop is for actors, dancers, musicians, designers and directors and is a great opportunity to spend a week immersed in the exploration of the performance space.

They first visited New Zealand in 1999 for the Magdalena Aotearoa International Festival of Women's Performance, and will return to New Zealand after attending the Magdalena Singapore festival, 9-15 July.

Jadranka is a founding director of DAH Theatre Research Centre (Belgrade, Serbia), and Antonella Diana has worked for more than twenty years as a graphic designer, scenographer, painter and mask-maker in Italy, Denmark and Serbia. Further information about Jadranka and Antonella is available at
