Why’s everyone walking around like Monday is the end of the world?!

The weekend is only the beginning and there’s plenty more going on throughout Sydney this week. Fortunately for you, FBi’s culture guide has sifted through it to bring you the best of arts, culture and general happenings around town…


Monday 24th :: It’s a collage of entertainment…

Cut and PAste is exactly what it sounds like; a wonderful melange of talent from across all disciplines (and undoubtedly a few un-disciplines too!) There’s no describing what might happen so why don’t I just list who’ll be there…

Smart Casual (Arguably Australia’s smartest, most casual musical comedy duo), Holly Austin (Actor. Singer. Beat Boxer. Clown. Enough said), Annaliese Constable (Recently drowned a mouse. Aside from sadistic acts she is also a writer), Tom Hogan aka Scott Sandwich (Performance Poet. Has been to Finland more than once), Penny Greenhalgh (Writer/Performer and Philippe Gaulier graduate), Jen Carnovale (Stand up comic with 4 star reviews from Sydney Time Out Sydney & she’s big in Estonia), Skye Gellmann (Artist and Acrobat. Yep. We said acrobat).

Oh and they’re promising a non-meaty raffle and at least 3 Surprises!

Wednesday 26th :: Deus ex Camera

Trent Parke has turned the eye of his camera streetward and captured the faces of anonymous strangers in a compelling chronicle of contemporary Australia. Whilst all the subjects of The Camera is God are anonymous their is a strange familiarity to the images, an almost recognisable quality, like they are friends half glimpsed from across the road…

WHAT: The Camera is God by Trent Parke
