Brand X invites artists with experience in creating site-specific performance and visual installation to submit an EOI to Petite Suite.

In 2022, seven artists will occupy seven hotel rooms at East Sydney Hotel in a mini-residency to create seven minute experiences for intimate audiences. The structure of the program is fluid, allowing for the creation of diverse works which may respond to the hotel and its surroundings or a non-literal interpretation of the site.

This opportunity is appropriate for contemporary artists working in theatre, spoken word, music, dance, comedy, cabaret, physical theatre, circus, performance art, installation art, interactive multi-media or multi-art forms. 

Artists will receive accommodation during the residency, dinner on performance nights, artist fees, stipends to contribute to production costs, and Brand X event support.

This project is supported by the City of Sydney, Restart Investment to Sustain and Expand (RISE) Fund - an Australian Government Initiative and the East Sydney Hotel.
