Pacha Sydney, presented by Heineken, has announced an exciting partnership with creative powerhouse The Squared Division in 2015. The formidable duo have joined the Pacha team as Creative Directors and will design dramatic new productions for the spectacular weekly entertainment experience at ivy. The new shows will launch on Saturday 24 January.  


Established by Antony Ginandiar and Ashley Evans, two of Australia’s most highly respected directors and choreographers, The Squared Division is undoubtedly one of the hottest production houses in the pop world. With over 17 years of international industry experience, their impressive CVs namecheck the crème de la crème of music superstars - Taylor Swift, Rita Ora, Ed Sheeran, Jessie J and Kylie Minogue to name but a few. The duo were handpicked by pop icon Britney Spears to choreograph her sell-out Las Vegas residency ‘Piece of Me’ and directed Ke$ha’s 2011 and 2013 world tours. On home soil, the boys have been the masterminds behind the stunning productions for The X Factor Australia since 2011.


Pacha Sydney’s partnership with The Squared Division is an exciting and ground-breaking new phase for the entertainment juggernaut. With a vision birthed in the notion of popular culture, Antony and Ashley will lead a phenomenal team to produce extravagant and cutting edge productions every Saturday night at the iconic Sydney nightclub.


Ashley Evans, The Squared Division, said: “We are incredibly excited to be working with Pacha Sydney and cannot wait to reveal what we have in store. Our shows will be provoking, provocative and laced with the distinct Squared Division flare. We want people to feel as if they are experiencing something out of a stadium concert tour, fused with the madness and quirkiness of performance art”.  


Pacha is a dance and sensory overload that features cutting edge music by international and local headliners, mind-blowing theatrical performances, spectacular costumes and awe-inspiring light shows. Since launching in November 2012, Pacha Sydney has been awarded a string of accolades including ‘Best Night Club’ at the 2013 Australian Liquor Industry Awards and ‘Club Night of the Year’ at the inthemix Awards two years running.


Pacha Sydney will continue its domination as Australia’s No.1 nightclub in 2015 with exclusive residencies and an enviable roster of international headliners confirmed. Further details will be announced soon.
