For our first Late Night Library series in 2017, we’re teaming up with Sydney-based storytellers Little Fictions. Over 6 nights, prepare to be entertained by a talented team of actors, artists and musicians who’ll bring local tales to life through a mix of original multimedia and live performance.
Join composer and broadcaster, Julian Day for a mesmerizing hour of multiplatform storytelling by actors, visual artists, filmmakers and musicians. Texts performed include local Sydney stories straight out of Crown and Williams Street, Central and Circular Quay.
In 'The Most Beautiful Story In The World', Oliver Mol tells of migraines, Sydney's lockout laws, love and mental health. His performance will be accompanied by a slideshow of quirky images by Carla Uriarte and a haunting soundtrack.
Sydney actor, Lauren Hamilton Neill will perform ‘These Are the Fox: Dream’ by Melbourne writer, Cynthia Troup in which an urban-dweller is brought into sudden intimacy with the earth’s most widespread wild carnivore. Cross discipline artist, Peter Humble’s soundscape and manipulated 16mm film distil and magnify the strange vigour of this encounter.
In ‘Diurnal: Slurry Hills’, we present a multi-layered live performance of award-winning Sydney poet, Anna Kerdjick Nicholson’s word-portrait of her local suburb. The performance features new work by Iranian-born photographer, Damon Amb and performance by Sydney actor, Felix Johnson.
Experimental composer, Stephen Adams teams up with Sydney flâneur, Jen Craig and videomaker, Jon Steiner to perform an excerpt from Panthers and the Museum of Fire – a fictionalised memoir which is as much about Sydney as it is about its author.
And film-maker Tyler Mahoney and musician Brendan Bourke present ‘A Fact’, a multimedia performance of Jon Steiner’s existential café conversation– featuring the captivating illustrations by award-winning graphic artist, Zoe Sadokierski.
Wollongong-based writer and musician, Josh Mei-Ling Dubrau and actor, Lauren Hamilton Neill will perform ICE ICE PARTY, Josh’s edgy monologue set in an intercity train carriage.
