In May, the Sydney Opera House launched UnWrapped, a performance series that highlights smaller Australian artists, independent companies and producers and allows them to further develop their shows. And now it's back with a new collection of works for an August instalment.
This time round, three performances will showcase a range of Australia's natural talents. Lucy Guerin's dance work Split is one not to miss as Guerin's stellar choreography scored her a Helpmann Award this year. Ich Nibber Dibber (a trio consisting of Zoe Coombs Marr, Natalie Rose and Mish Grigor) blends drama, comedy and political commentary in a collaborative performance based upon a decade of friendship. Finally, Australian singer-songwriter Mojo Juju will present an intimate performance from her newest album, underlining her Indigenous heritage and the stories that have inspired her writing.
The best part? The tickets are less than fifty dollars. That's a cheap date night at the Opera House.
