2016 Segue conjures up inspiring artists from Austrian Renaissance sonic, artist, audio painter and music mischief Heinz Riegler serving up a thrilling  sonic experience to Irish company Fishamble with their international hit SWING boasting a brilliant cast, poetic language,  and plenty of dark Irish wit. 

Try Spanish Australian outfit Bandaluzia with their unique interpretation of the flamenco form. Or Alzheimer Symphony  by Austrian/Tasmanian theatre-maker Justus Neumann - a poetically inventive meditation on the final stages of aging.  And for the totally hip cinematic diehards Sydney outfit Terza Madre’s contemporary take on Italian torch song and the nostalgic star power of Italian pop icons Mina Mazzini, Masssimo Ranieri, and Milva. Polish-Australian visual artist Gosia Wlodarczak is artist-in-residence completing her nine-day performance drawing on glass 'stCloud: frost drawing' and there are plenty of conversations to dip into.
