What ‘til Wed – 7th to the 9th of April
This week What ‘til Wed provides a stunning example of the diversity of entertainment styles and types that Sydney often has to offer, not just at the weekend but early in the week. From the film art of Isaac Julien to the legendary comic stylings of Monty Python’s own John Cleese, and a sprinkle of music in between.
Isaac Julien: Playtime – Tuesday and Wednesday – Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery
UK-born artist and filmmaker Isaac Julien brings to Sydney his newest film installation, exploring the relationship between capital, the art world and the individual. Playtime is set in three cities whose relationship with capital is central to their identity: London, Reykjavik and Dubai. Across narratives in each city, suites of celebrities make cameos, from actors James Franco and Maggie Cheung to famous auctioneer Simon de Pury.

John Cleese – Tuesday and Wednesday – The Concourse
The year of the Python keeps getting better, with Monty Python founding member John Cleese announcing a return tour of Australia. With many tales from his 40-year career writing and performing comedy, if there is a man who needs little introduction it is Cleese. He will be playing a string of shows at The Concourse in Chatswood on Sydney’s lower North Shore kicking off on Tuesday the 8th of April.
