25th July – 2nd August 2015

This summer the streets of Merchant City will once again be taken over by SURGE madness, bringing an extravaganza of outdoor performances that are all wildly unique and slightly outlandish.

Humans and machinery merge together in our Motionhouse opening performance Fragile, a theatrical dance piece with diggers as focal points, while elsewhere car mechanics find their true calling in opera and a quaint robot writes text in sand at your command.

Focusing on a range of topics – from friendship and fame to ecology and the absurdity of war – and the development of emerging talent, SURGE 2015 will bring the best and boldest in outdoor performance. And it’s all free as well!
