Metro Arts Friday Nights and MORE!


So you’re not at Metro Arts tonight either?


We are missing out on Metro Arts Friday Nights!

The exciting Friday Nights program has proven to be a feature of Metro Arts’ program in the first half of the year. On the first Friday of each month, Metro Arts opens its door to share the artists’ space. It is an energetic and social environment for artists and audiences to be in direct conversation, a feast of visual and performing arts, panels, experiments and open studios are programmed alongside a lively foyer bar.


In the second half of 2013, Metro Arts continues to showcase Brisbane’s most vibrant contemporary artists’ work through a program of performances and exhibitions. Metro Arts is proud to announce key partnerships with leading cultural institutions in Brisbane: Jan Manton Art to present Platform 2013, Queensland Music Festival to present Lady of the House of Love, and Brisbane Festival as a hub for the presentation of seven local and international works.


With the support of Drama Queensland and Arts Queensland’s Playing Queensland Fund, Aurelian by Genevieve Trace will be touring regional Queensland between 16 August and 2 September, leading into its premier season at Metro Arts, as part of Brisbane Festival. Through its producing hub, Metro Arts is also co-presenting a season of The Human Company’s The Empty City at the Brisbane Powerhouse as part of their annual children’s festival.


Residencies continue to dominate the program. Korean theatre maker and vocalist, Younghee Park, will be in residence to collaborate with Nathan Stoneham on the development of an adaptation of Brecht’s The Good Person to be presented at Next Wave Festival in Melbourne next year. Marcel Daniels and Daniel Herberg of Other Projects, continues their year-long residency exhibiting Changing Standards of Dialogues to close the Exhibition Program for the year.


Other key projects include the premier seasons of Motherland by Katherine Lyall-Watson, shortlisted for the 2013 Patrick White Playwrights’ Award, and Marcel Dorney’s new work, Prehistoric.


Metro Arts continues to up the stakes. It’s extending beyond its capacity to facilitate opportunities and connections for artists by sharing resources, trafficking information and building exchange networks. Metro Arts is enabling the next step for a community of artists and demonstrating its commitment to growing the entire arts landscape.


The work never ends. As Metro Arts launches this exhilarating program, it is already in preparation for the next flood of artists and projects. Metro Arts is now receiving proposals for the 2014 Exhibition Program and the 2014 January – June Performance Makers Program.
