The program for Sydney Festival 2022 has been announced and it’s an exciting one. New festival director Olivia Ansell has curated a dazzling program of 133 events spanning the city and the digital realm over 25 days.
Time Out and Sydney Festival are giving away a ‘golden ticket’ to five of the most talked about events. The prize includes doubles to these:
Qween Lear (Jan 7-16) explores the demise of Sydney’s party era through the tale of an ageing drag matriarch abdicating her nocturnal throne. Stacked with some of Australia's fiercest performers and with a dazzling light show and throbbing original score, it’s a joyous love letter to the legends of Sydney nightlife.
The life-size, lifelike prehistoric puppets from Erth, Sydney’s world-famous dino-recreationists, will wander right up to your picnic rug at outdoor experience Erth’s Prehistoric Picnic, transporting Parramatta Park and the Royal Botanic Gardens back 65 million years.
Hailed as one of Australia’s most exciting new rock bands by the NME, King Stingray from Yirrkala, a community in East Arnhem Land, has a distinctive sound blending surf, indie rock and funk with a Yolngu growl. Catch them at new Festival venue Speakers Corner.
Part concert, part story and part ceremony, 宿 (stay) is a new work by Western Sydney company Kurinji, its co-founder/writer S Shakthidharan (the playwright behind Counting and Cracking) and the renowned Singaporean sound ensemble SAtheCollective.
A collaboration between Performing Lines and award-winning choreographers Charmene Yap and Cass Mortimer Eipper, Grey Rhino is an audacious new dance epic which warns us to heed the dangers hidden in plain sight.
But that’s not all – the lucky prizewinner will also get a $150 dining voucher to spend on the tasty Chinese food at Chefs Gallery Town Hall (voucher must be used in the Sydney Festival 2022 period, Jan 6-30 and be booked through Sydney Festival).
