D.A.N.C.E. (Distinguished All Night Community Entertainers) art club is made up of Tuafale Tanoai aka Linda T., Vaimaila Urale, Chris Fitzgerald and Ahilapalapa Rands. What started as experimental gatherings after hours at Uni has turned into a 12 year relationship spanning pool hall competitions, speed dating, a mobile community radio station and dance marathons. What ties all of these disparate projects together is a desire to disrupt what art can be and who it is made for. Our focus is on the relationships that are formed during each project, through collaboration, music and the sharing of time and food.
Recent projects include DAC Green Screen, Conversations launch, Runway, Sydney, 2018, Lei Aloha, Auckland, 2017, Laundromat, You’re my number one, Gaffa Gallery, Sydney, 2017 Noho, All Goods, Auckland (2016); Guinness World Record Attempt, Artspace, Auckland (2014), GWR Livestream, Rockies, Auckland (2014); Night School, Fuzzy Vibes, Auckland (2014); Crockpot, RM Gallery/David Dale Gallery, Scotland (2014); ART UTE, Alex Monteith, Gow Langsford Gallery, Auckland (2013).
