'Lyrical Visions 2' is a follow up on the success of last year's event where poets and film makers screened and performed their work. Some of this year's work is from outside New Zealand and there will be live performances from several poets, the majority of the work is being screened for the first time with the film makers/writers there to present their work.

Welby Ings will be screening ‘Sparrow’ which is the beautiful story of a small boy who is teased because he thinks he can fly. When a family myth about his war veteran grandfather is exploded, he discovers the strength to stand up to the school bullies in a very unusual way.
Martin Sercombe will be bringing his latest work 'Maud' a visionary interpretation of Alfred Lord Tennyson's poem of the same name. The poem tells, in first person monologue, the story of a man's obsessive and unrequited love for a rich lord's daughter. (Film/Performance)

Gus Simonovic will be performing ‘Solo Group-Exhibition’ Reflections and contemplations on the way in which we relate and form relationships in the modern world... self and different aspects of self, the family, our upbringing and conditioning,our nationality, our country, our ego, religion, science, nature, the past and future, the spirit.
‘The Heart of Spring’ Chen Chen (video) Chen Chen's work is about Mei, a forty-year old Chinese woman. In her dreams, she always sees an enigmatic female figure wearing old style clothes and playing an Erhu (a Chinese instrument). She goes back to her hometown, a small town in China. The town is largely uninhabited and going to be pulled down in a short period of time. With the help of an old neighbour and a rural doctor, she discovers the meaning of the dream and the answer to her life’s mystery. An enigmatic past is revealed.

‘Sally Strange-Love’ (performance) Sally Strange-Love is an enigma - to herself.. Questions of Identity and Reality entangle themselves in blue within and outside of her personal space-time continuum.. Finding herself continuously led by some extreme mystic drive to actualisation, Sally Strange-Love skirts the boundaries between art and psychosis in an attempt to evade hypnotic enslavement to a prescribed consensus reality fraught with pathological normality, obsolete political hierarchy and ongoing systemic atrocity.

Other work ‘Patea River’ video by David Sinfield / ‘The Man with the Beautiful Eyes’ Jonathan Hodgson (video) / ‘To this Day’ Shane Koyczan (video) / ‘Silently Searching Above and Below’ by Robin Kewell (video/performance) / ‘Without Ever Seeing Anything New’ Emily Lowrey /Ollie Lucks (video) / ‘Dear Whanau’ by Simone Kaho.
