Program 52-24 Arts Friday on Eastside

Summer sessions continue with good vibrations from the Sydney Festival’s program. Benjamin Skepper is a musician, composer, multidisciplinary artist and co-curator if the Temperament series, a week-long celebration and deconstruction of Bach. He presents a a site-specific live remix of his own composition, Praeludium y Fuga. Sue Healey’s work draws its inspiration from dance as a transformative and poetic language of movement. On View – ICONS is a cinematic tribute to six icons of Australian dance. It’s an immersive multi-screen video installation that combines dance and film. We hear an intimate account of the project.

Produced and presented by Angela Stretch, from GADIGAL country, we acknowledge First Nations peoples as the sovereign custodians of Country, and pay respect to Elders of past, present and to future generations. We acknowledge and value the distinct culture, customs and practices present in the many and diverse tribal nations across NSW.
