Sydney Festival 2017
Every January, Sydney Festival enlivens and transforms Sydney with a bold cultural celebration based on the highest quality art and big ideas. Sydney Festival's 2017 program presents over 450 performances and 150 events performed by over 1,000 artists at more than 46 venues across theatre, dance, music, circus and art. Inclusive programming, a broad range of free events and accessible pricing policies for the ticketed shows means that Sydney Festival is open to all, welcoming Sydneysiders and visitors from wherever they live.
House of Mirrors
A fascinating labyrinth of endless mirrors, magnified to terrifying dimensions, House of Mirrors recently messed with minds at Dark Mofo. Stumble your way around thousands of disorientating optical illusions and lose yourself in some bewildering reflections. There is only one way into the House of Mirrors. Getting out is an art. Make the most of the long summer nights. After experiencing House of Mirrors, wander next door and take in a show, grab a bite to eat and relax at the Meriton Festival Village.
Little Darling Night Owls Kids Film Festival
The Little Darlings Night Owls Film Festival has free family movies for all ages as well as superhero flicks this January. The big screen will show 26 feature films and 17 short films presented by Little Big Shots (Australia’s major children’s short film festival), as well as provide entertainment each night from 6.30pm.
Briefs : The Second Coming
Described as the love child of RuPaul’s Drag Race and an Aussie version of Cirque du Soleil, Briefs: The Second Coming, is a sharp-shooting cabaret of burlesque. Meet the beautiful and bearded ringmistress, Shivannah, and the impressive male specimens of Briefs in the trashiest and most outrageous of talent shows you’ve ever seen. Expect frightful wigs and tightie-whities, aerial acrobatics, a bird bath, a dance-off, a yo-yo trick, and one highly inappropriate banana.
