30 Days and 30 Nights

The breakout, Australian comic (and later movie) 30 Days of Night gave you solid vampire terror for your month of entertainment. With 30 days and 30 nights, local creative hero Queen Street Studio (and many of that studio's alumni) offer double that to span its Chippendale space's farewell lunar cycle. Though less vampires.

Despite the ample time-frame, this farewell offers a packed program, with performance instruction from the likes of aerial experts Strings Attached, Siren master Kate Gaul or the Fondue Set. Free how-to classes also abound, including a serving of stage combat, and a dose of jamaican dancehall dance. Not to mention a final, family show from FraserStudios' resident artists, a pop-up bar and a history of the studios' three and a half years on site.

But the star of these closing weeks is its collection of performance. Thursday nights belong to freshly made performance art, while Fridays and Saturdays are wilder, $10-at-the-door ensemble pieces. The Tin Sheds are running ghostly, sleeping-bag-heavy camping tours, Double Trouble plan a night of double acts and there's a final bacchanal of the greatest group-dances ever assembled (instructions included) at the Modern Social.

It's a grand program to cast your eye over, but a fitting farewell for a brief and essential piece of Sydney's creative life.
