Best Ways to Enjoy the Brisbane Festival
The Upcoming Brisbane Festival is set to turn an already vibrant city into a city of colour with activities, fireworks and events sure to interest every member of the family. With so many places to go around the festival, it’s easy to get lost amongst it all. It is therefore necessary for us to guide you through a handful of the best attractions to set the wheels in motion. Here’s a taste of what’s on:
This comedy act is more suitable for the older members of the family, as physical comedian Trygve Wakenshaw takes audience members on a journey through the imaginary and surreal. The act’s humour is unique and unparalleled due to Wakenshaw’s extensive training in Parisian comedy schools. La Boite Studio and Theatre Republic host this unique experience.
Marvel at the remarkable sounds of this four piece jazz group who love nothing more than to pay homage to the sounds of the pre-war swing era of jazz. The Brisbane City Hall plays host to these minstrels as they tickle your ear buds with delightful melodies and rhythm. Anyone who is ready for a proper blast from the past will appreciate seeing what’s on offer in these performances.
Come along and hear the world-class performers of the Brisbane Festival offer up their pearls of wisdom at public talks throughout the duration of the festival. Some talks will be available prior to the performances while others will take place after. Keen to ask questions about the amazing spectacles you’ve seen? Curious about how much training was required to perform those amazing acrobatics or that scintillating opera performance? If so, these conversations are a must.
The Treasury Casino forecourt will be completely transformed into an aerial arena with this incredible acrobatic performance based on the classic tale of Alice in Wonderland. Spectators will marvel at the daring and death defying acts of trained professionals doing what they do best. Performances will start in the evening so make a night of it.
This gorgeous interactive exhibition will guide visitors through a colourful bamboo forest sprawling across the Cultural Forecourt of South Bank in the heart of Brisbane. The dazzling array of lanterns and illuminated foliage will appeal to all, from families and couples to massive groups of friends in search of the perfect all-inclusive selfie. Bring a jacket, a camera and a smile and you’re in for a good evening.
