TINY STADIUMS 2012
31 May – 9 June
Live Art Weekend this weekend 2 – 3 June rain or shine!
UPDATE! The location of the Information Booth has changed due to wet weather – you will now find it on the steps of the Erskineville Town Hall, 104 Erskineville Road.
Tiny Stadiums will soon infiltrate the streets of Erskineville, intersecting the familiar pedestrian routes and the paths of regular weekend activity with a cross section of live art. Curated around the concept of Centre/Margins, Tiny Stadiums artists will shift how people navigate the heart and peripheries of the suburb. A mix of performance, visual arts, installation and sound art, the 2012 Tiny Stadiums festival transitions between fact and fiction, local and global while considering ideas of place and belonging.
The program includes a one-off, In Conversation event at Newtown Library on 1 May, where artists and audiences are invited to engage in discussion of the works, features a weekend of live art in Erskineville village 2 – 3 June; and a performance season 31 May – 9 June, of Sweet Child of Mine (Best Experimental Performance Melbourne Fringe 2011), by Bron Batten, and, fresh from Next Wave, Impossible Plays by Alice Williams.
Creative thinkers involved in the live art weekend, re-imagine, re-frame and celebrate the historical, cultural and geographical idiosyncrasies of Erskineville and magnify its place in the world.
Tiny Stadiums 2012 presents new, brave works from artists that explore big ideas in little Erskineville.
