Our Disruptors do exactly what it says on the box.
They are about disrupting your normal experience of HOTA in entertaining ways, to expand your experience while here, even if you’re just meeting friends for coffee.
We choose artists who playfully interact with audiences and we align their residencies to other activities happening in the precinct. They sometimes shock, often amuse and confuse, and gently disrupt your day (in a good way).
Each artist is invited to interact in their own style, to experiment and create. The arts are not predictable and neither are our Disruptors.
Arc Circus Company
Robbie Curtis (Cirque du Soleil, Circa, The Australian Ballet) and musician and performer Lizzie McRae had our littlest audiences buzzing as part of our October edition of Kids Take Over. They tested out ideas for their new work A Bee Story before its outdoor premiere in Sydney Festival.
The Farm’s Greenhouse Youth Ensemble
Supported by HOTA Home Company The Farm, this group of eight young contemporary dancers and creatives took over our foyers, terrace and even the Theatre 1 auditorium (for a few minutes) during our end of year dance concert season, showing adults how disruption is done.
