Near and Now

Taking over the venue through different approaches to performance, Near and Now is for local Sydney audiences who love their freshly-made, edgy performance alive and kicking – from installation, to intersectional drag, to post-dramatic theatre… with DJs, dancing and drinks ‘til late. Presented by Intimate Spectacle.

This exciting program will include an art exhibition, live art in the glass stairwell, dance performances by ‘Whip It’ collective, tantalizing DJ and live act music performances with more still to be announced!
