Underbelly: public arts lab and festival at CarrriageWorks from July 3-14 will bring over 100 of Sydney’s fringe artists together for a ten-day public-access artist residency, finishing with a one day music and arts festival on Saturday July 14.
A social and artistic experiment of sorts, the Underbelly Public Arts Lab is about creating a space for Sydney artists to collaborate, exchange, rehearse and cross-pollinate in a communal environment, whilst inviting the public to witness and engage in this process first hand. From July 3 - 12 the lab will be open free between 2 – 10pm to watch and interact with works evolving daily. Special public rehearsal sessions for music and theatre will be scheduled from the 6th – 9th July, keep an eye out on the website for more details.
On Saturday July 14, the Underbelly Festival will transform CarriageWorks into a massive indoor music and arts festival, showcasing an unpredictable collection of performance, music, digital media and art installation. As well as featuring performances and works produced during the ten-day lab, there will also be talks panels, DJ’s, VJs, live music, bars and cafes.
