Alex and Georgie the sibling duo behind ALPHA60 share their tips on what tickets to get for RISING 2023.
1. Ghetto Biennale
We are so excited to be hosting Rising and the Resistance Artists of the Ghetto Biennale at Alpha60 Chapter House. We can’t wait to see how the space evolves and changes throughout Rising - we will be going back a few times for sure! This is a free event – so need for a ticket. It is also conveniently close to the hub of Rising ‘Night Trade’ in St Pauls Cathedral carpark for some bbq food, a drink and perhaps some karaoke.

It was a shame to miss This in 2021 due to the pandemic – we definitely won’t be missing it this year!
3. Birdz and Fred Leone Present: Girra
Rapper Birdz and Artist Fred Leone present their collaboration Girra. We cant wait to hear Birdz poetic lyrics alongside the voice of Leone - one the three Butchella songmen.
4. Oil Pressure Vibrator
We are excited to see South Korean artist Geumhyung Jeong’s performance lecture. Think sexuality, technology, the body and strange fascination with an excavator’s movements.

5. Flying Lotus
Flying Lotus at the Forum… Our Saturday night out is sorted!
6. Oh Dear
Looking forward to seeing the experimental art organisation APHIDS take on pop culture orphans.
7. Tiny Infinite Deaths
Alpha60 loves dancer Amber McCartney! We are forever mesmerised by the way she manipulates her body, as though it were a liquid, morphing into a hauntingly exquisite, vividly unsettling Cronenburg-esque vision. Her practice incorporates prosthetics, mask-making, film and practical special effects to create augmented, foreign bodies. You don’t want to miss this!
