A special highlight of Liveworks 2017 will be Performance Space’s much-loved Day for Night party, a giant 12-hour celebration of queer performance and party culture.

The art party will be presented with Carriageworks and Mardi Gras, and is joining the Liveworks program for the very first time.

Kicking off at midday on Saturday 28 October, festival-goers will have their performance cherry popped with a jam-packed lineup of Australia’s finest queer artists, performers, DJs, musicians, and lovers in a glorious collision of club culture.

Strap in for 12 hours of entertainment unlike anything you’ve seen before.

Some of the fabulous artists slated for the Day for Night party include performance artist Bhenji Ra, who will continue her powerful investigations into the racially-charged borders of personal and public space.

Visual artist Gareth Ernst will invite members of the audience to disrobe, and to have their portraits drawn live in the space.

Experimental musician and vocalist Marcus Whale will collaborate with visual artist Athena Thebus to create a new song cycle that explores the mythical figure of Lucifer – a persona that crosses cultural and religious borders – and his potential to be reclaimed as a queer icon.

And much-loved Sydney music icon Paul Mac will give a special concert of his brand new composition, immersing the audience in waves of electronic music and visuals.

Day for Night is running as part of Liveworks 2017 and will start at midday on Saturday 28 October. For more information and to buy tickets visit: performancespace.com.au/events/dayfornight.
