Bigger and better than ever, Anywhere Festival returns to South East Queensland for its tenth anniversary. A festival like no other, Anywhere means ANYWHERE – theatre, comedy, music, circus, cabaret, dance, poetry, and walking tours, through to spoken word and even a little bit of magic – but set in gyms, underground reservoirs, backyards, ferry stops, power stations, plant nurseries, golf clubs, rooftops, warehouses, cafes, trams, parks and heritage homes.
With more than 800 performances across Brisbane, Ipswich, Moreton Bay, Sunshine Coast and Noosa there is a performance near you! Or, if you want to see a bunch of shows one after the other for the first time, there is five Festival Hubs that will be hosting multiple performances throughout the evening. In 2021, Anywhere Festival is also online, in immersive virtual reality and real time. Highlights of the festival include virtual reality experience PRISON X (an immersive play in virtual reality where you play the role of a drug mule), Muscle Up Circus (a showcase of fitness and physical theatre) and Coterie Cabaret (a cheeky and hilarious celebration of kink). To help fill your noggin with fun facts international visionaries Violeta Ayala, Deirdre V. Lyons, and Siobhán O’Loughlin will discuss the future of storytelling online and in virtual reality in The Future of Storytelling or see Siobhán in the interactive romantic comedy My Heart Goes Zoom.
