It’s Everywhere With Anywhere (Festival)
Anywhere Festival returns May 2019 with over 400 performances in the nooks and crannies of Noosa, Brisbane and Sunshine Coast. Christina Cannes previews some of the highlights to play out in the Noosa area.
Performances anywhere but a theatre returns with shows across Brisbane, Sunshine Coast and Noosa’s nooks and crannies 9-26 May.
Audiences will once again find performances in weird and wonderful locations including aviation and maritime museums, backyards, heritage homes, buses, light houses, nurseries, parks and everything in between. Featuring theatre, drama, comedy, circus, dance, immersive experiences, music, poetry and family friendly acts, it’s a vast and diverse selection of talent.
After starting off in Brisbane in 2011, Anywhere is now in its third year in Noosa and the Sunshine Coast. According to Noosa Mayor Tony Wellington, “this festival not only dissolves the proverbial ‘fourth wall’ between the audience and performers, it also does away with the other three walls of conventional theatre.”
This year performances in Noosa will include:
- The Tempest by Little Seed Theatre Company held at the Noosa Botanic Gardens Amphitheatre, Cooroy. This is the third offering in the Shakespeare by the Lake series from the exceptional youth theatre company who brought us Romeo And Juliet in 2017 and Midsummer Night’s Dream in 2018.
- Storyplace Noosa Everglades by Red Chair in partnership with Noosa Discovery. Take a cruise up to the Everglades or join us for a self-guided 4WD tour at a secret spot for storytelling, music and performance celebrating place.
- Design Nation Live by Tim Ross will be held at Bark Architect’s Studio, Tinbeerwah. Comedian and self-proclaimed design nerd, Tim explores the fascinating and often surprising stories of some of what he calls the “invisible icons” of Australian design. From the Stackhat to the iconic Dolphin Torch, Tim uses his trademark wit to ask us to rediscover these ubiquitous, everyday objects of Australian design through previously untold stories, personal anecdotes and design narratives, revealing how our unique design histories have helped shape our national identity.
- Dangerous Song by Linsey Pollak and Lizzie O’Keefe in Peregian Beach. Get up close and personal with two talented performers weaving new music from instruments, live looping, voice and the sounds of endangered species at a residential home.
