The word on the street is that they are the word on the street. Get ready, because The Real Housewives of Black Birds are back; bigger, badder and more blinged out than ever. Join them as they bring the drama and spill tea at Global Fringe.

Black Birds was created as a response to the lack of representation & misrepresentation of Womxn of Colour in the Australian arts industry. With each project, creatives are invited to collaborate on works that dissect and document the female Black and Brown diasporic experience in Australia through art and performance in a variety of mediums and spaces – both theatrical and non-theatrical. Black Birds prides itself on making work that is intersectional, interdisciplinary and intercultural. We strive to create work that is culturally, financially and physically accessible; work that challenges the norm and starts the conversation.

COVID-19 Safety

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic this venue does not allow door sales at this time and has distancing measures in place, meaning all tickets must be purchased in group-size bundles.

The Old 505 Theatre, Sydney Fringe and the producing companies have all developed and adhere to comprehensive COVID-safe plans. However, there is of course an inherent risk in attending live events during a pandemic and audiences choosing to attend do so at their own risk. Please feel free to contact Sydney Fringe or the Venue to receive a full copy of the COVID-safe plans.

If you are uncomfortable or unsure about attending the theatre in person, we encourage you to experience the work during our Global Fringe season online.

Read about the in-venue COVID-safe procedures on the Old 505 venue page.
