A fun midweek, online, lockdown edition of our multi-artform performance night! MERRIGONGX is bringing exciting, local, independent artists into audience’s homes on Wednesday 22 September at 7.30pm with an online showcase of their latest creative endeavors.
This multi-artform performance night offers artists space and support to test new ideas, and is a great way for the community to connect and support artists. The event will showcase 1.5 hrs of new works from local artists across performance, stand-up comedy, script readings, music, dance and anything in between.
MC drag queen Space Horse will host the online line-up:
Writer and maker David Molloy presents an excerpt from his radical new play Farewell To Arms: A Lovecraftian Sex Romp. This reading will give you a glimpse into David’s riotous, taboo-busting horror comedy with a sex-positive twist.
Composer, multi-instrumentalist and producer Gregory Paul Mineeff will showcase his latest modern, ambient and electronic sounds from yet-to-be-released album Scrape Away The Snow.
Tegan Ware is a filmmaker, theatre director and writer. Her work titled Damsel in Revenge, will be performed by actor Alana Maclean Dowling and discusses the spicy topics of revenge porn and internet safety.
Choreographer and dancer Lisa Maris McDonell is presenting a short video that features some of the projected imagery to be used in the work associated with The $20 Commissions Project. A project that asks ‘what is a choreographer worth?’ Lisa’s work is a protest / provocation that is part dance cabaret, part documentary and wholly something you’ve probably never seen before.
Sophia Marosszeky, a young gun, stand up comedian who recently won NSW Class Clowns and went on to score runners up at The Melbourne International Comedy Festival will deliver her latest routine.
Writer and director Bella Whitcher takes us into the absurd world that surrounds young adults in 2021 with a scene from her script Twenty Something.
Actor, writer, singer songwriter and theatre-maker Lucy Heffernan brings us her alterego Fairy Sprinkles! What’s a fairy to do in lockdown… but start her own YouTube channel! This episode will find Fairy Sprinkles having to make something… from scratch.
