CALLUM MOONEY’S ‘WeAreSound’ @ ANNANDALE CREATIVE ARTS CENTRE

WeAreSOUND is an upcoming dance event which is the brainchild of Callum Mooney.

The performers will create visual representations of the stuff that goes around our brains as we encounter the machinations of public transport. I would imagine there will be a plenty of room to move with this concept!

The work fuses Physical Theatre, Contemporary, Hip Hop and Comedy.

PLAYING FOR THREE NIGHTS ONLY between November 17 and 19 @ the Annandale Creative Arts Centre, 81 Johnston Street, Annandale.

Sydney Festival 2015 preview

January is a lazy languid time in Sydney, so it’s slightly unfair that the art lover’s idylls should be rudely interrupted – but in the best possible way – by the massive feast of cultural events that is the Sydney Festival.

Like a refreshing summer shower, some of the festival’s most appetising events are fleeting, lasting for only one or two nights; others, like a lingering heatwave, bask the greater Sydney region in their glow for weeks.

This year’s 179 events spread from the CBD to the Blue Mountains, 85 of them are free and there are almost 500 performances in total. Eight of them have exclamation marks in their title (one even has two!!) so expect some very exciting shows!

As always with the Sydney Festival, it’s best to get in early: by the time you hear about them they have may have vanished or sold out.
