Performances. Anywhere. Discover performances in your local nooks and crannies: backyard bands, poetry on bridges, theatre on golf fairways. Anywhere

THANK YOU FOR EXPERIENCING THE 2021 ANYWHERE FESTIVAL

The tenth Anywhere Festival took temporary possession of everyday and extraordinary places to present an intimate discovery of places and performances over May 2021.

Independent performers presented an astounding 755 performances of 137 productions in the nooks and crannies of Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, Ipswich, Noosa and Moreton Bay.

According to the performance makers, 102 productions would not have been possible without Anywhere Festival providing support, marketing and the ability to present and adapt during COVID regardless of the restriction levels with adaptable non traditional performance venues.

Circus in gyms, comedy in underground reservoirs, Shakespeare in backyards, storytelling at ferry stops and on trams, gigs on rooftops, virtual reality and magic in warehouses, dance in churches, sleuthing in heritage homes. Performances. Anywhere.

Anywhere Festival will return May 2022.

MEET PAUL OSUCH A MESSAGE FROM THE FOUNDER

May in Brisbane is Anywhere Festival. The tenth year of Anywhere Festival. If you are hearing about us for the first time, welcome!

To everyone who waits for May and Anywhere time, we're so very excited to be back in 2021 after a year that saw us working with independent artists to present anytime and anywhere except May as we charted a course for performance makers to perform and still get paid while all the traditional venues were closed.

"This is hands-down our actual fave performing arts festival of the year."
