The BLACKMARKET world is run by the ‘traders’ pvi’s operatives who train the hustlers in the vital abilities required in this apocalyptic world.

pvi are looking for eight performers to help them create BLACKMARKET to life on the streets of Kings Cross. The performers will undertake a two-week lab in the Kings Cross neighbourhood from 12 – 23 May (Week 1: Tues-Fri, Week 2: Tues-Sat). This will be followed by a two-week performance season running 26 May – 6 June, with performances nightly Tues – Sat (evening call times of 4 hours per night).

$600 for each week of the lab (full time), $500 for each performance week (part time). $2200 for the full project
