We are excited to be back after a hiatus, due to Covid-19! 

This year’s festival will be grounded by the theme: PUBLIC VS. PRIVATE. 

Since the world has changed, our sense of self and the way we interact with the world around us and each other has changed too. In many communities, experiences and relationships have been forced to become incredibly private or incredibly public, reshaping our lives in unexpected ways. This year’s festival will explore the juxtaposition between the public and private spheres, and to present a series of works that lean into these realms and situate themselves in this new climate. 

The thematics will navigate questions around what we are entitled to know, hear, touch, and see. Through a wide range of works, PAWA will address issues around power, intimacy, anonymity, and boundaries. Over the course of the festival, the audience is asked to consider what it means to be privy to the bodies, secrets, and dynamics of the communities and spaces around them.

We look forward to seeing you all in the flesh, very soon.
