Sydney Festival presents in association with Performance Space

Here at Performance Space, we're thrilled to be teaming up with Sydney Festival again, to present the work of two artists we love. Anna Breckon and Nat Randall's Set Piece is their brilliant, engrossing new performance and film work centring queer women's relationships and offering a dazzling and inventive new take on the form of live performance. PSpace has been involved with this visionary new performance from the very beginning, commissioning its early development alongside Arts House and Vitalstatistix—and now co-presenting its world premiere season. 

Nat Randall and Anna Breckon, co-creators of the remarkable marathon performance The Second Woman, join forces once more to explode the conventions of the couple drama and explore the ordinary and extraordinary facets of queer relationships.   

With a script crafted from steamy 1950s pulp fiction, snatches of real-life dinner party conversations and improv, Set Piece is a powerfully intimate theatre-film experiment in which lesbian fantasy meets the queer ordinary. Nuanced camera work crushes the distance between observer and observed, theatre and film, and fantasy and reality. 

Absorbing, intimate and quick-witted, Set Piece is a unique study of erotic and emotional dynamics between women, a synesthetic experience for theatre and film buffs alike. 


This project has been assisted by the Australian Government’s Major Festivals Initiative, managed by the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body, in association with the Confederation of Australian International Arts Festivals Inc. Commissioned by Adelaide Festival, Rising, Perth Festival, Sydney Festival and Performance Space. Original Co-commissioners Vitalstatistix and Arts House.
