October's biggest events
Budding horticulturalists who like plants with attitude should head to the Royal Botanical Gardens for a free exhibition of carnivorous greenery. The Calyx will be filled with 25,000 of the world’s hungriest, most clever plants.
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. The rest of the exhibition isn’t about biological transformation, but how our world has transformed over the thousands of years that humans have dominated.
Sydney Opera House is bringing back its popular morning yoga classes on the outside steps of the landmark building. The 60-minute classes take place on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays with views of the Botanic Gardens and Sydney Harbour.
Bell Shakespeare is hoping to jolt us out of complacency with its new production of Julius Caesar. While the play mightn't be Shakespeare's most performed, it's certainly one of his stabbiest, and is promising gripping action as Brutus grapples with the idea of political assassination.
There are more than 3 million items held in the Hermitage, so picking works for a single exhibition is a bit of a tough ask. This exhibition, focuses on works from the late 19th century and the early 20th century, showing the evolution from impressionism to modernism.
What happens when Edgar Allan Poe's works burst to life across 30 rooms in an abandoned Newtown warehouse? That's what audiences will experience at A Midnight Visit, a new large-scale site-specific interactive theatre production.
For next year's big summer exhibition, the MCA is presenting an exhibition of mostly black-and-white photos by South African photographer David Goldblatt. His images have traced the changing face of South Africa from the start of apartheid through to 1991, when it was dismantled.
