New Performance Festival – breakthrough works that transcend the gaps of artistic convention.

Taking the live experience into rich new territory, the local programme is complemented by leading artists from Canada, Europe and Australia. All have been invited to take part based on their likelihood to change your minds as to what live performance can be!

“This festival is unashamedly a mix-tape of my favourite performing artists who made something new in the last 12 months that truly moved me. I find them inspiring, original and provocative people who passionately dare to make work on their own terms.”  — Stephen Bain, Festival Curator.

There’s a Facebook page for the news on NPF as a whole, the news on the Ping Pong Pit matches (artist interviews like you have never seen them), workshops, Late Night Music shows ($5 at the door) and videography.
