Nick Cave’s HEARD•SYD performed for first time in Australia

Presented by Carriageworks and the City of Sydney, American artist Nick Cave’s first major work in Australia, HEARD•SYD, saw thirty colourful life-size horses transform Carriageworks and Sydney’s Pitt Street Mall with three live performances featuring over 60 dancers & musicians. Cave’s spectacular and seminal work will disrupt the daily activity of Sydneysiders with an exuberant and surreal explosion of equestrian activity set to live percussion.

The life-sized horse suits are constructed from coloured raffia and found materials, producing a distinctive sound when activated by two dancers at a time.
