POPUPSTAIRS ... THE DEAL

ABOUT…

The Popupstairs program is an innovative use of space. Partnering with KX Hotel to share the use of the Bordello room KXT has installed a simple lighting rig, set up seating for 60, and opened the doors to Sydney’s indie mavericks.

MORE…

We’re offering space, some online promotion and in-room support. The room is a multi-use venue which means that Popupstairs will operate off a fringe model suitable for short seasons of new or experimental work, on selected dates throughout the year.

THE DEAL

  • The majority of seasons will run for one week only.

  • Each year the season will include 2 or 3 featured shows that will run over 2 weeks.

  • Venue is available to hirers from Sunday midday to Saturday midnight.

  • There may likely be some noise spill from other events on Friday and Saturday evening, which means you may need to run unorthodox show times

  • Hours of Access from 10am – midnight weeknights; and midday – midnight on Sundays

  • Performance start time 7pm. Popupstairs is not suitable for a show requiring an interval.

  • Your show will be promoted as part of the KXT Popupstairs program on KXT social media and website and will be included in our regular eNews.  

  • Weekly cost $500 venue hire + $200 bond, refunded following successful bump out

  • The Bordello Room seats 60

  • As with KXT: Popupstairs is a venue hire only arrangement and bakehouse takes no share of your box office. This means you will need to run your box office, ticketing and provide FOH personnel

  • KXT has installed a new lighting rig.

  • Due to the limits of the power sources in KX Hotel it is not possible to bring in additional lighting fixtures.

  • The room has operational speakers, subs and a mini mixer.

  • There will be a bar operating 30 mins prior to your show No bar split.

  • Site visits will be arranged as needed. Please remember that KXT is unfunded and unstaffed so this will need to be organised around team availability

POPUPSTAIRS: an uncurated space for high risk work in a low risk lo-tech environment, managed and overseen by bAKEHOUSE prod manager Andrew McMartin and KXT prod assist Charlie Vaux

a place where audiences can expect to see the unexpected.
