Presented by Sydney Opera House
An ongoing series of short, sharp and surprising events from independent creators. Each one is handpicked to give you the chance to witness captivating visions and true artistry, stripped back to its most breathtaking core.
Short, smart and surprising independent theatre is back with acoustic donuts, queer community flux and Lynchian surrealism. Explore an UnWrapped line up that includes new commissions and acclaimed works from William Barton, Michael Mohammed Ahmad, Daley Rangi and more.
The Demon by Michael Mohammed Ahmad, Rachael Swain and Gavin Webber.
The Demon is a Lynchian crime thriller that stretches across generations. The intersectional creative team draw on their Chinese, Arab, Anglo-Celtic settler and Indigenous backgrounds to weave a surrealist allegory for the Australian demon of racism.
Takatapui by Daley Rangi
Antidisciplinary Maori artist Daley Rangi examines bodily integrity in an unmissable experience that simultaneously conjures queer joy and hot rage.
Queer as Flux
Transitioning isn't new - everybody's always doing it: Drag Queens, babies, aging parents, superheroeseven clown fish! An intimate, uplifting solo performance by multi-award winning artists Stace Callaghan (trans-masculine writer/performer) and Leah Mercer (director), celebrating transitions of bodies, hearts and minds via stories of gender, sexuality, spirituality, near-death experiences, dementia, dying and interspecies love.
The Concert. A film by Angela Goh
A fantastical journey of mythical proportions. Reimagining the original Acoustic Reflectors that hung in the Concert Hall from 1973 until 2020, Angela Goh's film The Concert depicts these iconic objects as artefacts that point to other worlds.
