(The Seventh) Festival of Surrealisms

April 22, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 10:00 pm


20th Century Fish in association with Endlessoptimism, incontinently present: (The Seventh) FESTIVAL OF SURREALISMS, April 22 and 23rd, at Temperance Hall in Napier Street, South Melbourne.

Compered by Captain W.N. Fish (Bill Marshall) and his loyal co-producer Marco Lawrence, the FESTIVAL OF SURREALISMS features non-stop performances of Dadaistic poetry, unusual musical offerings, wildly funny comedy, strange theatrical spectacles, psychedelic movies, avant-garde experimental sounds and bizarre “happenings”.

Some of this year’s contributors include Marty MonStar, Eddy Burger, π.O., Libby Charlton, The John Lawrance Hour, Steve Smart, Peter Murphy, Awkward Giraffe, Phoenix, Helen Child, Beige Brown, Doctor Gonzo and Sean O’Callaghan, as well as films “Fantasy Man”, “Louder Than Words” (featuring Jas H. Duke and Ania Walwicz), “Mystical Rose”, “Fundeath” and “The Ballad of Captain Fish”.  The full line-up will be announced via Facebook in the lead-up to the event.  Turn up early to secure a spot.

If you don’t know what to expect from a surrealisms festival…Ask yourself, why fish?
