November's biggest events
American artist Nick Cave – not to be confused with the Australian singer-songwriter – is bringing 16,000 wind spinners, 24 chandeliers, ten miles of crystals, thousands of ceramic birds and one crocodile to Sydney. Cave’s Until is a mammoth new installation work coming to Carriageworks from November 23.
Ensemble Theatre is presenting Alan Ayckbourn’s long-form trilogy, The Norman Conquests. The three parallel plays follow the unravelling of the romantic but philandering Norman as he deals with his wife Ruth, her sister Annie and his sister-in-law Sarah over one disastrous summer weekend.
The MCA is presenting an exhibition of mostly black-and-white photos by South African photographer David Goldblatt. If you're not part of the art world, you probably won't have heard of Goldblatt, whose images have traced the changing face of South Africa from the start of apartheid through to its dismantling.
There's nothing quite like a film under the stars in the beautiful surrounds at Belvedere Amphitheatre in Centennial Park. Settle in for a movie and as always, the Moonlight Cinema food truck and bar can supply you with comestibles, but you're welcome to BYO food and drinks, too.
Belvoir are bringing out the big guns for their last upstairs show of 2018 with a new production of Strindberg’s classic play. It follows Alice and Edgar, a married couple who loathe each other living on a remote island, thinking of ways to kill each other.
Have you ever wondered which Star Wars character you most resemble? In this new exhibition you’ll be invited to journey to a galaxy far, far away to create your own Star Wars identity, using specialist technology and rooms of Star Wars costumes, models, props and artwork.
Aspects of Love is an intimate piece focusing on the relationship between an actress called Rose and a young student Alex, who becomes obsessed with her while travelling through France. It's based on a David Garnett novella of the same name and takes place across 17 years.
There are more than 3 million items held in the Hermitage – and most aren't on permanent display – so picking works for a single exhibition is a bit of a tough ask. But this exhibition focuses on works from the late 19th century and the early 20th century.
The foyer installation at White Rabbit always sets the tone for each exhibition, but the one that greets visitors to Supernatural is a pretty big statement. Hanging high above the gallery are ten life-like nude figures, with the body of a man, but from the chest up they’re dragonflies.
You’ve been flung back in time to 1988 Indiana and your mystery-solving skills are required to investigate the disappearance of local residents. This is the premise of the Lock In, which blends theatre, puzzles and cocktails to create a role-playing adventure similar to an escape room.
Crawl under the blankets with a glass of wine and settle in for another season of movies at the Entertainment Quarter in the Showring. The concept is irresistible – a large inflatable bed to snuggle into, food, drinks and a great movie to get your teeth into – but this year they're introducing a few innovations.
