Donít miss Christchurch-born composer and performer Dudley Bensonís first performance in his home town in over six years as part of Christchurch Art Gallery's Waitangi Day celebrations on the 6th of Feb!

One of New Zealandís most innovative musicians, Benson will activate the NZI Foyer for a dynamic, experimental performance in which he will marry himself to the land. Expect highlights from Benson's two critically-acclaimed albums Forest: Songs by Hirini Melbourne (2010) and The Awakening (2008) to feature in the narrative, as well as new work from his forthcoming third album, Zealandia. 'A Wedding' is a bold and visceral declaration of our relationship with the land, expressed through engaging pop music. Dudley Benson is the most fascinating musician to have emerged in this country in the last ten years. - Grant Smithies
