Lady in Red (2015) – a midnight Valentine’s Day window gallery performance in Auckland’s red light district. Performers (exclusively women) played out the complex, problematic love stories as dictated in a selection of cult love films; exploring the feminine muse and her power, and her relationship to women of the everyday – particularly those in precarious lines of work. The resulting film was exhibited at The Auckland War Memorial Museum Tāmaki Paenga Hira and featured in the panel discussion, Late 2015: City of Shadow.
