Late Night Library

Doors open for grown-up events

Let us entertain you at our libraries after dark, where we bring you the best in late night, adults only events and invite talented performers to question, challenge and experiment.

  • Late Night Library: The People’s Table 3
    Wednesday 25 October 2017
  • Book now

    For our final Late Night Library series for 2017, we’re teaming up with Sydney-based political theatre company Filibuster. Four unique and immersive experiences are like no other past Late Night Library event.

    Democracy has had one too many drinks and it’s time for an intervention. On the last Wednesday of each month, August to November, Filibuster invite you to be our guest at The People’s Table.

    Each night some of Sydney’s most dynamic performance artists will throw a proverbial thought-bomb at a table of diverse Sydney locals. The best bit is you get to watch.

    Fidget-spun democracy set to the soundtrack of Pokemon Go. 12 teenagers are taking on the People’s Table. They can’t vote but they can pay taxes and they’re done with sitting at the kids’ table. They’ll meet 3 artists from Generation No-Longer-Youth who’ll test their ideas, hopes and resolve. Are the children our future? Do they need no education? Find out at The People’s Table.

    Set in the Customs House Library Reading Room. The People’s Table is a public dinner conversation for all.
    Customs House is wheelchair accessible.
    It’s best to book but you can join the stand-by queue on the evening. We look forward to you joining at The People’s Table.

    The People’s Table – People that don’t know how to vote.

    “Micro/major/minor/mini-parties… huh? I guess the Greens have the inside scoop given the colour of the House of Representatives ballot paper, right? We still use paper? I’ve never listened to the people handing out the instruction manual at the gate. I’ve trouble reading. I’m way in over my head below this line. No idea what you’re doing? You’re not alone. We’re bringing together the cleverest artists we could source with 12 people that don’t know how to vote. Will clarity prevail? Find out at The People’s Table.”
