Description

For our final Late Night Library series for 2017, we’re teaming up with Sydney-based political theatre company Filibuster, to present 4 unique and immersive experiences.

Democracy has had one too many drinks and it’s time for an intervention. On the last Wednesday of each month, from August to November, Filibuster invite you to be our guest at The People’s Table. Each night some of Sydney’s most dynamic performance artists will throw a proverbial thought-bomb at a table of 12 diverse Sydney locals and the best bit is, you get to watch.

You saw that “I'm just one vote, what difference could I possibly make?” poster pinned outside the careers counsellor office at school yeah? Well, maybe you're not much for posters, or glancing over documents generally. Perhaps you've wondered instead what the Australian Electoral Commission consider a 'valid and sufficient’ reason to not vote? This September come watch the resisters, the ratbags and the disillusioned and be challenged by the 3 most optimistic artists we could find. Can they checkmate some electoral cynicism? Find out at The People’s Table.

Set in the Customs House Library Reading Room, The People’s Table is a public dinner conversation for all.

This series of Late Night Library is produced by City of Sydney, and presented in collaboration with Filibuster.

Customs House is wheelchair accessible.

It’s best to book but you can join the standby queue on the evening. We look forward to you joining The People’s Table.
