PACT Salon: The Wild Things curated by James Nguyen & Digby Webster.
Tickets are $15 online/$20 at the door.*

A night of performances, shared journeys and encounters.

The Wild Things is a space where strange creatures and things converge in a world of light, performance, visuals and sounds. Curators James Nguyen and Digby Webester are bringing together some of their friends and colleagues who have very different approaches to making and living with art. PACT Salon: The Wild Things will be a space where audiences can come in and be immersed in the diversity of our lived experiences, imaginations and fantasies. It is also a moment for artists to encounter and enjoy finding new and unexpected connections.

The night will see artists Chris BuntonEmily Dash, Parris Dewhurst, DJ Kingy, Loc Nguyen, James Penny, Morus Quin and M. Sunflower be your guides and companions into the wilderness of sharing art, performance, sound and dance.

The Wild Things are not experienced from what you can see, hear or touch, but by the most peculiar and spectacular creatures that only emerge from deep within yourself.

The full program for PACT Salon: The Wild Things will be available soon.
