In November 2019, Sydney audiences were once again afforded the chance to experience the work of artist Tino Sehgal, who is renowned for creating art that leaves no material trace. This is so contemporary, which debuted in Australia at the Art Gallery of NSW in 2014 as Kaldor Public Art Project 29, cannot be photographed, and must be experienced through direct, interpersonal encounters.
In September 2019 IN TRANSITCo. (formerly Flightpath Theatre) in collaboration with Merrigong Theatre Company and the Illawarra Multicultural Services transformed the Wollongong Town Hall into an international airport transit lounge for an immersive theatrical experience exploring departures, arrivals and belonging.

Game of Seven is a durational improvisation based on techniques developed by Force Majeure with performers from the 2012 and 2013 Cultivate Labs. This performance installation allows the viewer to engage with an improvised movement vocabulary in an engaging, playful environment.
In 2011 Force Majeure partnered with Performance Space to bring together a diverse and talented group of emerging directors, choreographers and dancers. Titled Cultivate, these workshops gave them the opportunity to explore Force Majeure’s devising process. In 2012, the same group will reunite for Culminate where participants will further develop and, ultimately, present a showcase of dance-theatre work. Presented by Carriageworks, Performance Space and Force Majeure.
The Bland Project is a performance work about the mystery of blandness, which is not any one thing or quality. Themes include the transgression of personal space and boundaries, and the difficulty of separating or dividing the self, as being, from the performance “character”. Directed by Alan Schacher at Carriageworks (Sydney)
NNO COLD FEET is a site specific performance work directed by Tess de Quincey taking place at Cathedral Square, Cook & Philip Park (Sydney). It is an experience, incorporating the sights, sounds, smells and substances of our city into sixty minutes of weird and beautiful art.
