Ten women performers arrive in the central business district of Auckland by boat and inhabit various sites throughout the city as anarchic angels, Urban Devas.

This work seeks to create an intervention that re-imagines the city as a poetic place of imagination and transformation invoking the mythical and surreal. See:
