New normal, back to normal, no normal.
We’ve flattened the curve, we’ve counted the cases dropping, we’ve masked and swabbed and sanitised, through a long winter of iso. But what have Sydney’s artists been thinking and doing and making in these strange times? Come out of iso, and be a part of it, in these four weekends of new live performance for a distanced world.
Next Level, A New Realm of Hip Hop (October 29-31)
Curated by Nick Power, a night of short, experimental works featuring some of the most exciting talent from the Sydney street dance community. Come check the styles as they take hip hop into a new realm.
O.A.SiS (November 12-14)
Curated by Troppo Galaktika’s Latai Taumoepeau, O.A.SiS is an acknowledgment of the generations of women that hold us in hard times. O.A.SIS is a collective exhale with local artists in Redfern. O.A.SIS is a reflection back to the wisdom of original ancestors.
107 = The Angel Number, Wings of Desire & Waylaid Works (November 26-28)
Curated by Malcolm Whittaker, for PACT Centre for Emerging Artists, emerging artists with projects that have been waylaid, compromised and inspired by time in isolation. Artists include: re:group performance collective, Gabby Chantiri, Jay Gardener and the Lost All Sorts Collective. * Convene at PACT at 6pm for a ceremonial prelude to ‘de-weed the isolation’, and then make your way to 107 for the rest of the event from 7pm.
Naked Streets Dirty Sounds (December 10-12)
Branch Nebula’s team come crashing in with the speed of skating and parkour overrunning the gallery, infectious dance claiming the footpath, broken stilt movement bursting forth from the elevator, and a shredder sound installation.
