FRIDAY 26 JANUARY 2018

PLAYING IN A WARZONE
Invasion Day
Curated by Sass Hound
Doors: 7pm

Come shuffle and dance around the poisoned water hole that has been refurbished to form the "new" Redfern. Come on the day of grieving, the day of survival and mourning that is Invasion Day....that the invaders and press call "Australia Day"

Expect a combination of music that shakes the earth, performance and spoken word that rattles the cages, video, installation and art that is mashed over and under the history of the Block. The music will not fit into a genre but will be performed by both Aboriginal and non Aboriginal Artists who make work that wants to change things.

The artworks and installations will not make you feel like your on a holiday and the images will surround you and reflect the blood-soaked truths that define this date on the calendar. Them same ones that speak to the reality of the place we share. Featuring Sass Hound, Divide and Dissolve, and many others.

Announcements of acts and artists will come closer to the event though nothing will be predicted or promised only reclaimed, reminded and resounding...like an echo that is so loud you feel the impact in your sternum.. then in your skull then eventually your heart and guts.

THE SPLINTERVERSE
UPSTAIRS ROOFTOP GALLERY
JAN 24, 25, 27 & 28, 2018 From 7pm

Is it a Multiverse? Is it a parallel world? Is it a Hologram? No - it's Splinterverse!

An installation/happening/durational-performance taking place upstairs at 107 over the 4 days of the festival.
No pieces, no movements, no showcase, no program - just a commitment to explore an ongoing socio/musical experiment that no one person can perceive in it's entirety.
Danger, when you enter the Splinterverse a different cosmological constant means the normal laws of art don't apply.
Kid friendly!

Updates will be posted each day.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.
