precipice a dance of abandon and precarious control, pushing four dancers to their physical limits.



Animal herd, cult hysteria, rock concert, protest riot; Borderline – a work at the edge of (in)sanity.



Two rooms, two top solo performers, one story, nothing is private – Overexposed sees a life unravel from two very different points of view.


This is your chance to secure your tickets to these three new works, all premiering at the Studio Underground. See all shows for $90 – includes a welcome pack from each production.

Your Seven Development

Posted by admin, July 17th, 2014

James Berlyn recently completed a creative development of a new processional performance work inspired by Shakespeare’s “Seven Ages of Man” speech from As You Like It.

One audience member at a time works their way through a series of experiences, each a different stage on their life’s journey. At the end of the experience, audience members receive a photo album of their “life”, tracing their progress from “birth” through their awkward teen years, life struggles and ultimate end.

An invitational meditation on life, featuring James, Adam Booth, Ella Hetherington and Sarah Nelson, this development was supported by the Australia Council for the Arts.

Berlyn in Brisbane

Posted by admin, June 24th, 2014

Following tonight’s festival launch, we’re thrilled to announce that James Berlyn has not one but two shows in Brisbane Festival this year!

Packing up the sparkles and heading east, James will perform his new one-on-one participatory work Silent Drag Photo Booth of Berlyn at the QUT Theatre Republic throughout the festival. The show was developed as part of Proximity Festival’s Party For 1 last year before heading to the Festival Of Live Art in April.

This new production will run directly after Tawdry Heartburn’s Manic Cures – the first time Tawdry will appear in the River City. The installation will be available for public viewing throughout the festival, with Tawdry on hand to pamper your paws from 6:30pm to 8:30pm nightly.

Both shows will be performed from 9 – 27 September (Tues – Sat) in the Parade Ground of the Theatre Republic at the Queensland University of Technology. Excitement! Check out the full Brisbane Festival program here>>
