Now here’s a Sydney Harbour you won’t find on a postcard. The waterways west of the Bridge provide the backdrop for a unique maritime experience developed by the celebrated Tasmanian company Big hART.
You’ll board one of Sydney’s historic Rosman ferries – along with a company of musicians, sound artists, shipwrights and deckhands – and embark on a sonic expedition to the unsung places of our iconic working harbour.
During a series of original performances inspired by the boatsheds, workshops and waterways in which you experience them, you’ll sink into the varying soundscapes of places shaped by time, tide and trade, each one bearing the unique patina of decades of service.
