FailureLab Sydney: The Highs & Lows of the Creative Journey
When:
28 May 2016
20:00 - 22:30
Location:
Giant Dwarf Theatre, 199 Cleveland St, Redfern NSW 2016

Founded in 2012 in West Michigan, U.S.A. Failure:Lab combines storytelling, audience reflection time and performance in a fast-paced program, with 7 storytellers and 8 performances, packed into a 99 minute show.

In an Australian first, these creative professionals will each share personal failure stories including a bank-busting exhibition, broken collaborations, uninspired moments, poor business moves and other lows that you don’t hear about – but be honest, have experienced!

Storytellers share a story of failure, joining Failure:Lab’s global mission to eliminate the fear, stigma, and isolation around failure which, in turn, helps remove roadblocks to communication, innovation, and community.

Storytellers
Marcus Westbury, CEO of Contemporary Arts Precincts Ltd

Somaya Langley, Sound Artist

Jeremy Staples, Cultural Seed Planter and Trouble Maker

Dr Annetta Mallon PhD, Lecturer & Writer

Chloe Beevers, Creative Strategist

Adam Monaghan, Executive Producer
DA Carter, Musician

Storytellers share memories of failure in a safe space for mistakes – no lessons learned or talk of who’s to blame! The audience can reflect on Twitter using #failurelab during the moment of reflection between stories.

Performances follow each story to recharge the audience. Electro poetry, spoken word, ‘gyp-hop’, acoustic melodies and oscillating guitar strings will lift the air between stories.

This event is presented by Simone Sheridan. Proudly supported by Sydney Markets.
