The Flying Nun is a showcase of the outcomes from Performing Arts residencies with Brand X at the East Sydney Community and Arts Centre.
By its very nature, we celebrate the fringe, alternative and contemporary counter-culture, contributing multi-disciplinary creative risk-taking to the East Sydney Creative Precinct. Come and be the first audience to witness new work fresh out of the rehearsal room and by doing so, support Independent Artists with income and feedback to propel the work on to stages across Sydney.
