And more to be announced
6PM - 3AM
The "Going Under" series invites artists to curate a night that dives deep into their Sydney/Eora, to bare the stories and experiences of their community, their soul, the sound of their City.
Mary's Underground opens up to the immersive and cross-disciplinary, facilitating a space for artists to create an experience that is bold, evocative and unforgettable, bringing us together through their soundtrack.
It is an opportunity for artists to explore their relationships to each other and the city, to celebrate long time collaborations, to open up new ones. Each night is unique to the collective of that evening and how they choose to share "what beats at the heart of the soul of Sydney/Eora."
Part of Vivid Sydney and City of Sydney’s XCelerate program.
