The Inner West’s most talented and creative forces will come together for the EDGE Inner West Festival. In partnership with the 24th Biennale of Sydney, EDGE will take place in the newly refurbished White Bay Power Station and the iconic Petersham Town Hall across three spectacular weekends in April. 

Showcasing an array of creative and cultural performances, EDGE will shine a spotlight and celebrate the rich and diverse cultural scene of the Inner West.

After receiving a flood of interest by its local performers, Inner West EDGE is proud to announce its selection of artists and performers that will headline this year’s festival. Each performance has been carefully curated by local artists who represent a fusion of diverse identities, each one delivering compelling and unique contemporary storytelling practices.

White Bay Power Station (6 – 7 April, Rozelle)

This monumental and historic opening weekend will take place in the newly renovated White Bay Power Station, formerly one of the longest serving power stations in Sydney. Its new purpose is to house and become a multipurpose cultural facility for a range of local cultural and artistic functions. 

EDGE has chosen some formidable and notable performers to begin the festival, with experimental and dramatic dance from local performers Legs On The Wall opening the festival.

They will be followed by Force Majeure, who blend storytelling, movement and sound, breathing life into the defunct power station. Performances from Indigenous artist, Samantha Snedden, Japanese artists Ryuichi Fujimura & WeiZen, and interactive dance workshops by Suara Indonesia Dance will help ensure there is something unique for everyone.
