British theatre company 1927 conjures a “graphic novel come to life” in this multimedia production combining handmade animation, claymation, live music and performance. The dark, dystopian tale follows Robert, a binary coder by day and punk rocker by night. Roslyn Packer Theatre, 22 Hickson Road, Walsh Bay. Opens Wednesday. Tickets: $40$55. Bookings: (02) 9250 1777 or online. Until March 26. The Blind Giant is Dancing It is good to see again this great classic of the Australian stage, in such an excellent production by Eamon Flack. It is epic, wild, paranoid and passionate, full of personal and political hope and despair. Writer Stephen Sewell takes a long time to set up the rich narratives, the arcs of his characters and the events of the time he is writing about, the early 1980s. The pay-off, by the end of this production, is well worth the investment. We watch in fascinated horror as Redlands Konica Minolta Art Prize Celebrating its 20th anniversary, this annual award displays contemporary works by Australian and New Zealand artists, placing no limitations on medium or subject matter. This year’s guest curator is Mikala Dwyer, who won the prize last year for her “empty sculptures” conceptual work. She selected the 22 finalists, which include Daniel Boyd, Pat Brassington and Sarah Goffman. These established artists have then chosen one emerging artist each to display work alongside them, enabling a dialogue between different generations of practitioners. National Art School Gallery, Forbes Street, Darlinghurst. Opens Monday. Admission free. Inquiries: (02) 9908 6484 or online. Until May 14.
