Anywhere Festival returns 9-26 May 2019 with over 400 performances in the nooks and crannies of Brisbane, Sunshine Coast and Noosa.

Audiences will once again find shows in weird and wonderful locations this May including aviation and maritime museums, backyards, heritage homes, buses, light houses, nurseries, parks and everything in between. Featuring theatre, drama, comedy, circus, dance, immersive experiences, music, poetry and family friendly performance, there really is nothing like an Anywhere show.

“With Anywhere Festival you can experience an everyday or an extraordinary place in a completely new way whilst seeing the best of independent performance. It’s a night out with a ‘difference’ not just seeing a ‘show at the theatre’,” said Paul Osuch, Founder and Artistic Director of Anywhere Festival.

Minister for the Arts Leeanne Enoch said Anywhere Festival was one of Queensland’s most vibrant and innovative arts initiatives that activates new creative spaces, to deliver rich and accessible arts experiences to more Queenslanders.

“The festival champions collaboration, fosters strong and cohesive communities, supports emerging arts practitioners, and partners with local businesses to provide theatre that engages audiences and helps us tell our uniquely Queensland stories.”

The festival has been wowing audiences young and old since the first festival in Brisbane in May 2011 and quickly became one of the exciting annual events in Brisbane, according to Brisbane City Council Lord Mayor Graham Quick.

“In its ninth year, Anywhere Festival continues to be the biggest performance festival of Brisbane-based independent performers,” said Mr Quirk.

The festival is now in its third year in Noosa and the Sunshine Coast and the benefits are clear to Councillor Mark Jamieson, Mayor of Sunshine Coast Council.

“The Festival provides a platform that brings together local business, performers, residents and visitors alike to visit spaces on the Sunshine Coast in a new and enlightening way.“, Mr Jamieson said

Noosa Mayor, Councillor Tony Wellington supports the egalitarian roots of Anywhere Festival.

“This festival not only dissolves the proverbial “fourth wall” between the audience and performers, it also does away with the other three walls of conventional theatre, “ Mr Wellington said.

And why?

 “The festival champions collaboration, fosters strong and cohesive communities, supports emerging arts practitioners, and partners with local businesses to provide accessible theatre that engages audiences.“, Ms Enoch said

Anywhere Festival is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland, Brisbane City Council, Noosa Council and the Sunshine Coast Council.
