Artists Dick Frizzell and Richard Adams will deliver a painter’s workshop, followed by a one-off performance-art experience, painting to a performance of “free jazz”.
The sequent entity of the Waiheke International Jazz Festival , waiJAM is about promoting local and international jazz, art and non genre-specific music collaborations. While retaining many inspirational jazz performances, a new focus is on contemporary music, demonstrations of abstract and figurative painting and collaborative performance art involving painters, musicians and the audience
