Brand X is re-launching Season 5 of its contemporary performance program The Flying Nun, premiering at East Sydney Community Arts Centre during Oct-Dec.
Brand X Director James Winter, says: “After months of Sydney’s night-time venues being dormant, we are excited to inject some creative life back into the inner city and present this exciting collection of experimental independent artists in a COVID-safe environment. We will offer live and virtual audiences a program of contemporary performance to reconnect with each other again under the new realities of COVID-19. If isolation has taught us anything, we need places for commune. Cultural connections remind us of our simultaneous fragility and resilience.”
The new program is radical, exciting and surprising – expect the unexpected with performances that explore love, COVID isolation, trans-global collaboration and Sydney eccentrics.
Some of the highlights of the program include;
A celebration of fringe counter-culture, The Flying Nun was created to incubate experimental projects that more conventional performance spaces hesitate to take a risk on and provides a platform for artists to test out new ideas and take them to the next level.
Oct 23-Dec 12. East Sydney Community and Arts Centre, 34 Burton St, Darlinghurst. $10-$25+b.f. Tickets & Info: www.brandx.org.au
