Thursday November 24, 1-9pm
Before we hit silly season Verge is asking for your undivided attention one last time. On November 24, Verge will host a number of events. From a lunchtime screening of the best of the worst short films ever made, to our first ever performance night, ‘On the Verge’, we are insisting that you exploit our hospitality before heading off on your endless summer break. Consider this day a test run for events to come in 2012 – a sampler if you like…
1-2pm Film Ephemerata
The first world has produced a lot of crap. Film Ephemerata showcases the best of the most forgettable; jaw-dropping propaganda, promotional and paranoid film that someone (for reasons unknown) has rescued from the dustbin of history. Come share our rubbish. FREE!
2-4pm Verge World Takeover Planning Session
In case you couldn’t tell from the title, we’re planning to take over the world in 2012, and we need your help. If you’re interested in showing or performing at Verge next year (and you’re a Sydney Uni student) then come and talk to us. In all seriousness, we will begin to plan out ‘Wildcard’ slots for next year and coming along will put you at a distinct advantage.
4-6pm Zine (DIY magazines) Workshop
If you’re interested in writing, publishing, illustration, or DIY in general this is not to be missed! Zine Tsar extraordinaire, Vanessa Berry will be guiding participants through the creative and conceptual processes of zine making. There are a limited number of places so sign up NOW! (FREE to University of Sydney Union Access members, $5 for non-members).
6-7pm Launch of Sound Plaza with Colin Black’s Soundprints: Sealed in Sweden
Internationally acclaimed composer/sound artist Colin Black (and winner of the won the prestigious Prix Italia Award in 2003) presents his extended radiophonic work. Soundprints: Sealed in Sweden, is the inaugural work for our outdoor Sound Plaza – an outdoor area that will ooze with sublime sonics.
7-9pm On the Verge performance night
The very first of an ongoing series of performances, On the Verge, will feature performance and sound art that will have you at the edge of your seat in a potent mix of agony, excitement and anticipation. FREE!
