An installation work by Sandra Fiona Long. An extravagant display of power that involves heaters, in the wake of empty promises, broken agreements and corporate green-washing. You're invited to take off your shoes and do nothing but warm yourself and listen.
An offer of 25 plays by 25 of the best Australian writers. A diversity of voices that are terrifying, daunting and apocalypscising. No play is longer than a song, short and sharp like a violent track, to indulgent, strung out, epic psychedelic stoner metal sagas of 6 min 66 seconds recurring.
