  • GHOST SALON

    Fri 6 Nov at 8pm and 9.30pm
    Sat 7 Nov at 8pm and 9.30pm


    In the shallowest hour of the night a faint outline appears. They outnumber us. They watch us fret and obsess. But tonight, they strike up the band. Ghost Salon is a lush evening of hilarious and haunting cabaret. A luminous view into those who’ve been left in the dark. Part seance, part confessional, part spectral hooley. All welcome, dead or alive.

    A real-time collaboration with the Netherlands, Layer tells the story of three women, each alone and isolated with multiple cultural identities. They encounter multiple layers of themselves in real, virtual, fragmented and augmented realities. Layer explores notions of self-identity, as well as the pleasures and fears we stumble upon within our socially distanced COVID selves.

    Sat 21 Nov at 8pm


    A solo work incorporating AV and call-and-response games with a riotous monologue about the culminating impact of casual racism. Blanco – a struggling Asian actor – reviews the short ‘life cycle’ of his career with documentarian flair, unpacking the emotional labour and exhaustion of being a POC artist in Australia.
