Hidden Sydney

"The Nevada" at The World Bar

Sydney, AU

25 May - 18 June 2017

Kings Cross is an inner-city locality of Sydney.

The Cross, as it is known by localites, was once the epicentre of organised crime figures and  a booming red-light district..

Despite the recent gentrification and lock out laws that put a damper on the once boundary free zone, King Cross has remained a state of mind.

Hidden Sydney is an immersive, exhilarating cabaret celebrating the hey days of Kings Cross and bringing the lost stories of a bygone era to the surface, featuring an all-star ensemble cast.

Set over four floors of “The Nevada”, the former Sydney brothel that became known for a range of well publicised features.
Once it starts, the lines between life and art instantly start to blur and you instantly become a protagonist in the stories and lives of crime and other colourful figures of yesteryear.

Within the first moments of the experience, it becomes apparent how much attention to detail, research and effort has gone into its execution to make it a dynamic production that unfolds as you meander through the building while staying coherent and true to its narrative.

Spilling any details would spoil the fun of the experience and the broad mosaic that each component contributes to making it a nuanceful whole, ranging from dialogue via physical theatre to dance. Suffice to say that the action begins once you leave the confines of the pop-up bar and stories become alive with you being placed right in the middle of the action of a gritty past with interaction galore.

Hidden Sydney is an innovative, colourful and humorous experience and the talent in this production is outstanding and if you like surprise and are open to a very different theatrical experience, this will be right up your ally and highly recommended to anyone looking for something a bit special during Sydney’s Vivid Festival.
