Hive Of Industry is a new work by Legs On The Wall in 2024. This work is has been visioned for the opening of the new White Bay Power Station as a place of art and Community activity. Legs will draw on its long-standing history of presenting works that respond to site and Hive Of Industry is no different. Responding to the industrial nature of the site, Legs will showcase the human body alongside the early 19th Century architecture. The early years of the power station saw it as a key part of the cities electrical grid and now transformed into a community art space, making Legs On The Wall the perfect fit, showcasing and celebrating this new Inner West arts space.

About Legs On The Wall

In 1984 a collective of street performers from Sydney’s Inner West adopted the name of a warm-up and created a physical theatre company. Through the creation of works such as All of Me the company's reputation for distinctive physical storytelling grew. “Legs” soon became synonymous with outdoor works of jaw-dropping grit and spectacle, notably Homeland. That legacy of sharing vital contemporary stories through daring aerial performance is carried further today in works like THAW (where a soloist is suspended atop a 2.7-tonne melting ice sculpture) and sees Legs On The Wall "40 years strong" and looking to a vibrant future.
