From 9 to 13 May, the Sydney Opera House will be presenting the first of its new UnWrapped series staging some of Australia’s best contemporary performance works rarely seen beyond their premiere seasons – and we have a ticket giveaway offer!
UnWrapped is part of the Sydney Opera House’s Artist and Sector Development program which supports local Australian artists, small companies and producers through presentation platforms and unique professional development opportunities.
A deeply personal exploration of disability and duality, artist Jodee Mundy shares her experience as the only hearing person in a Deaf family through a captivating blend of performance, storytelling, multimedia and animation. Personal is in English and Auslan with audio loops available. Visit here for more.
Two Jews walk into a theatre…
Director and performer Brian Lipson and choreographer Gideon Obarzanek meet on stage in the shoes of their fathers in a funny and provocative theatre piece with all the intimacy, understanding and horror that only a son can supply. The performance on Saturday 12 May at 6:00 pm is Auslan interpreted. Visit here for more.
How can we move beyond the frames of disability and access? Join Jodee Mundy, Emily Dash and Sarah-Vyne Vassallo to discuss inclusion as a culture and how it’s integrated within their arts practice.
Why not make a day of it? This talk is on 12 May at 4:30 pm, between a matinée performance of Personal at 3:00 pm and an Auslan interpreted performance of Two Jews Walk into a Theatre at 6:00 pm. Visit here for more.
Mother’s Ruin: A Cabaret about Gin
Maeve Marsden and Libby Wood, two of Australia’s rising cabaret stars, stumble and soar through tales of love and women, gin and secrets. Equal parts historical and hysterical, we explore the history of gin through story and song. Visit here for more.
A Faint Existence
Acclaimed Australian dancer-choreographer, Kristina Chan, performs her solo debut work — a powerful physical meditation on fragility and mortality in the age of climate change. Visit here for more.
We invite you to explore the program in more detail right here.
