The master of twerk presents ARTBAR

This Friday 27 October, I’ll be dj’ing as part of the MCA’s ARTBAR series, a night curated by Caroline Garcia. For those who haven’t been to an ARTBAR yet, an artist is invited to curate a night of exhibitions, music, performances, installations during the last Friday of every month. The MCA is transformed into an arty/party playground, the last time I was involved in an ARTBAR was for my good mate, artist extraordinaire + disco lover, Lauren Brincat for her ‘DRUM ROLL PLEASE’. Past ARTBAR events have been curated by local legends Emma Price, Pip & Pop, Justin Shoulder & the Glitter Militia, Rosie Deacon and Bhenji Ra. So excited to be part of this, Caroline is an incredible performance maker who blends cross-cultural dance, ritual practice, new media and popular culture sampling in her work. And of course, it’s important to support my fellow Filipina! Expect twerking workshops, a bump n grind room and explorations into ‘The Pleasure Principle: Janet meets Freud’. See you at 9 as I’ll be spinning Soul Train on the rooftop!!
Friday 27 October 7-11pm
Tickets available through the MCA.



Push the Button (disclaimer: this is not named after the Sugababes song) has been whipped up by Charlie Villas, a Sydney-based DJ and music curator. It  contains reflections on her three fave things in life – music, pop culture, and style, and weaves connections amongst these along the way.
