Welcome to Fabulous Brisvegas, sleeping in the subtropical sun dressed in the trappings of a new world city. Cranes perched like steel ibises on mushrooming towers that cast their shade on the river’s brown serpentine coils.
This city produced the Saints, the Go-Betweens and pop princes, Savage Garden.
But beneath this glass plated epidermis stir the ghosts of the moonlight state. This was the city where bagmen couriered brown paper bags stuffed with bank-notes. Where blue malice paced troubled streets.
Through visual art, live performance and discussions, Brisbanality explores how the River City has shaped the identities of those who call this city home.
Featuring the works of Janine Healy, Len Joynson and The Dustbin Hoffmans, Brisbanality invites audiences to reflect on their own relationships with the city of Brisbane.
When: August 21 – 22
Where: Superordinary – 62 Mary Street, Brisbane, 4000
