Rehearsals have been in progress for the last 4 weeks. Preview is on Wednesday 22 June and opens on Thursday 23 June followed by a 2 week season.
23 June – 2 July
Wed – Fri 8pm, Sat 3pm & 8pm
Within & Without is a new performance and installation that examines a capital city through its physical and psychological landscape. Audiences are immersed in a reproduction of the city of Manila, made entirely out of recycled cardboard boxes, shadowplay and surround-sound environments.
Navigate your way through a city constantly under construction. Be engulfed in representations of history, rituals and pageantry and hear stories that construct the city’s identity. Within & Without is an exploration on how capital cities – through their architecture, mythologies and histories – represent and personify the cultural identity of a nation.
Following the successful national tour of their production The Folding Wife, Within & Without is the second major collaboration between Sydney artists Paschal Daantos Berry, Deborah Pollard and Valerie Berry with celebrated Filipino artist group, Anino Shadowplay Collective.
Outside of the performance times the Manila city installation can be visited from 24 June during Blacktown Arts Centre opening hours: 10am – 5pm, Tues – Sat.
Within & Without is a WALK project. WALK is a season of walks, promenades, marches and strolls in and around Sydney taking Performance Space’s program onto the streets and into the venues of partner organisations, opening up opportunities for artists to engage with new sites and audiences.
