 Next Wave Festival

Description

Across the Wurundjeri and Boon Wurrung lands of the Kulin nation in Melbourne, 31 world premiere productions will span 18 days of evocative experiences that question memories of the past, explore the turbulence of today and determine challenges of the future.

Spanning a democratic dinner party to a near death experience, a dog dancing competition to an unlikely collaboration between mother and son, the 2018 program brings together artists and audiences to share courageous stories that are told in ways that only Next Wave Festival can. Now in its 34th year, Next Wave continues to blaze a trail across the country’s arts industry, crafting unique learning programs and presentation opportunities for artists that reflect a commitment to social and cultural diversity, environmental sustainability and inclusion.

From printmakers, curators, installation artists and zine makers through to practitioners working in Islamic decorative arts, queer performance and radical alter-egos, the selected participants represent a diverse cross-section of identities and artistic practices operating in Australia today.

Location

Arts House
North Melbourne Town Hall, 521 Queensberry Street
