Opening night Thursday 16th March.

Improv performers Whip It will be performing across both nights and will be showcasing diverse styles of dance, movement, vocal and music by some of Sydney’s finest performers across generations.

We are also delighted to announce the addition of AñA Wojak an award winning cross-disciplinary artist working in performance, painting, assemblage, installation and theatre design. AñA creates visually poetic performances that resonate with a visceral depth and will be performing across both nights.

We also have Lux Eterna exhibiting Aura Nox Anima, that was created post artistic residencies spent in the vast windblown and sand dusted topographies of Anna Bay, Australia and Erg Chebbi, Morocco. The artworks resonate with the artist's innate fascination with death and life cycles, mass extinctions, collecting bio and geo material, the slow clocking turns of the earth show us the magnitude and fragility of life equally. Aura Nox Anima invites viewers to start perceiving a more measured passage of time, re-created by the dancers’ long durational presence in the dunes, insofar as to begin contemplating our own visceral vulnerabilities and susceptivity to the natural order.
