I Watched Someone Die on Tik Tok was previously presented in Live Dreams: DEATHS by Performance Space and Carriageworks.


The Flying Nun is a showcase of outcomes from Performing Arts residencies facilitated by Brand X. Each season we celebrate the fringe, alternative and contemporary counterculture, and promote creative, multi-disciplinary risk-taking within the East Sydney Creative Precinct.  BRAND X supports artists by providing low-cost resources to reduce financial barriers to developing and presenting new and experimental work to audiences in Sydney.
