‘The audience is divided. Those who can afford it are escorted to their private viewing area, to be served champagne and smoked salmon throughout the show. The rest risk the edges of the performance space, clad only in black lingerie.

So begins the latest work by The Sydney Front. First and Last Warning proposes a dangerous place of dominance and submission, of ominous sentiment and blessèd violence.’ - Press Release, First and Last Warning, 1992
