WINNER: Mardi Gras Festival Event of the Year (2014)

Day for Night places Australia’s boldest queer artists in a durational performance wunderkammer. As the exhibition draws to a close and day turns to night, the space transforms into a large-scale dance party with Stereogamous at the helm.

Curated by Jeff Khan (Performance Space) and Emma Price (The Kingpins), and scored in collaboration with leading electronic musicians Stereogamous (Paul Mac and Jonny Seymour), Day for Night sets you free to roam through the exhibition, encountering the performances on your own terms. As the large-scale dance party emerges, the artists flick the switch on their works and you experience it all in an electric new context.

The key cultural event of Mardi Gras 2014, Day for Night features an awe-inspiring line up of artists including Justin Shoulder (The River Eats, 2013), Alex Clapham and Penelope Benton (I Want Candy, Underbelly 2013), burlesque supernova Lillian Starr, durational performance art hero Frances Barrett with Samuel Bruce, cLUB bENT veteran Dean Walsh, Sydney dance stalwart Martin del Amo,and explosive all-grrrl collective Hissy Fit.

Shaun J Wright, the voice behind Stereogamous’ club hit Face Love Anew and Hercules and Love Affair vocalist is coming to Sydney to perform live at the Day for Night T-Dance party. Shaun J Wright joins Stereogamous and their many friends including Brendan Maclean as they bring the party to our queer performance extravaganza!

Part exhibition, part performance art go-go, and part T-dance, Day for Night delivers creativity right to heart of the Mardi Gras party season, continuing Performance Space’s thirty-year commitment to queer performance.
