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 50, and opened the doors to Sydney’s indie mavericks.
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 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 Thursday midnight.
Hours of Access from 10am – midnight weeknights; and midday – midnight on Sundays
Performance start time 8pm. 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 50 + standing room
KXT is currently in the process of installing a new lighting rig, and the Bordello Room will be set up with a fully functioning standard rig. Further updates available in Jan 2019. .
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 and 30 mins following your show close. 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
