Carriageworks Nights at Carriageworks

Thu 11th May, 2023 – Fri 25th August, 2023
245 Wilson Street, Eveleigh
A new artist-led after dark program at the venerable Eveleigh institution spans performance, music, film and food.

A new late-night program of boundary-pushing artists, performers, musicians and producers will descend on Carriageworks for ten nights of artist-led evenings, spanning performance, music, film and food.

The program kicks off on Thursday May 11 with Silly Silly Party, a collaboration between Jazz Money and Jason Phu that encourages participants of all-ages to have a silly time. That comes via a swag of nostalgic activities, including big bubbles, bad face painting (by Phu), mystic readings, magicians and giant games.

Held in the Blacksmith’s Workshop, the night will also include hands-on activities such as a superhero cape making workshop with artist Dennis Golding and weaving with writer and artist Anne-Marie Te Whiu. A free event for all ages, Silly Silly Party invites everyone to have a silly time.

Other events across the program include artist Frances Barrett presenting Mouth, a night focused on the voice told via poetry, improvised performance and song, through artists Sage Pbbbt, Jo Fabro, Tina Stefanou, Sonya Holowell, BLECK and Tarik Ahlip performing under simulated moonlight; video artist and curator EO Gill’s Softcore, a drive-in cinema featuring rare and classic experimental films; artists Sidney McMahon, Mistress Tokyo, Demon Derriere, Haiku Hands, BVT, Luke George and Weizen Ho exploring artistic representations of consent; and Feast, which sees Fijian-born artist Salote Tawale collaborate with Claire Van Vuuren, owner and head chef of Newtown restaurant Bloodwood, on a celebratory banquet.
