Erskineville is unusual. Sandwiched in its golden triangle between three train stations, strange things happen there. The strangest thing of all is probably the PACT theatre: unprepossessing supporter of emerging arts and artists, it's been getting away with its Tiny Stadiums festival of performance and art for full on four years now.

Previous years have seen the debut of cool new art like the Experts Project, which graduated from inner-west to harbourside after its run in this Erko sideshow. This years' is the first under the guidance of the Groundwork Collective, with an expansive line-up including some theatrical love from Next Wave and a more parental production.

But the heart of the festival remains the weekend of live art on Erskineville's streets (June 2-3), with some sober dance in the Rose of Erskineville, pop-up Vietnamese street stalls, endurance meditation and a cardboard arena in the PACT courtyard. With toasties.
