THE BENDER is back!!! Returning as a one night only art party, THE BENDER has built a reputation as an immersive interdisciplinary feast. A celebration of collaboration, THE BENDER is a time for experimentation, exploration & debauchery. This year’s explosive line-up features invited headline acts, local artists as well as artists from further afield. The Lock-Up cells will be filled with visual and sound art, installation works, boxing, fashion, projections, interactive entertainment, Studio 54 disco beats, and explicit power-filled nudity.

Expect to be immersed and spat back out. You’re in for one wild ride.

Introducing – BETTY GRUMBLE (Sydney)

Surreal Showgurl. Obscene Beauty Queen. Wild Womanhood. Sex Clown.

With ceremonial precision and deranged wit, Betty Grumble enslaves her audience with a powerful call to arms as she raptures in the complexity of the woman body as a political and playful site. A maniacal Feminist contagion and ecosexual, her award winning work has been critically lauded across the board. From the polished stages of Belvoir St Theatre and Sydney Opera House, to the swampy dens of Sydney’s Queer Underground and International Fringes.
