Canberra’s festival season shows no sign of slowing down. The next big thing to step out into the city in the name of showing you a good time is the Village Festival.
From their website:
The Village is a beautiful, beguiling festival that exists to provide an intimate environment in which professional and non professional artists and audiences can meet each other in bliss. The programming esthetic is populist, accessible, quirky, and littered with the familiar and the exotic. Folks you know personally and things you never knew existed.
The Village runs from the 21st-24th of March and contains a bunch of local and interstate talent performing a wide variety of shows, most of which are free.
There is so much fantastic thing on, I just want to point out a few I’m particularly interested in.
- The Oddhouse. A tiny tent containing series of short shows by the wonderful Pablo Latona.
- When Claude met Roxy. Erotic Finger Puppet show. What else can I say?
- Dirt Babylon. A theater piece containing the fantastic creepy costumes you see above and below.
- Super Bloodword II. Because it’s going to be totally awesome and I am completely objective about this.
