Get Involved

Anywhere Festival is a globally unique festival based right here in Queensland that is all about experience performance in nooks and crannies anywhere but a theatre.

Performance makers are released from the burdens and costs associated with traditional venue hire to create intimate and unusual experiences where the location becomes the set and a unique bond is created between audiences and performers.

Present performances

Take creative risks without all the financial risks with performances in nooks and crannies anywhere but a theatre - backyards, lounge rooms, pools, mazes, cafes, galleries, libraries, streets as part of 2023 Brisbane Anywhere Festival. Expressions of interest can be for any genre.

Be an Anywhere Reviewer

If you have a voracious appetite to see as many shows as possible and like to express your thoughts about them for others to read, this is for you.

Anywhere Reviewers get free tickets as many shows as they can realistically review. You get guaranteed seats for sharing your experience on the Anywhere website. All reviews will have your byline and link back to a social media account or website.

We want it to start a conversation with the writers and to improve the strength of criticism. This may be run by Anywhere, but we are not looking for puff pieces from friends.

How does it work. It's as simple as:

  • Register your interest by Wednesday 6 April below.
  • Book in your shows by Wednesday 13 April
  • Be part of our session and read our info pack about reviewing at Anywhere
  • See the shows.
  • Post your review within 24 hours of seeing the show.

All reviews are published on our website and in previous years the reviews have been the second most visited section of the web site after the ticket booking page. Check out some of the wonderful work from reviewers in previous years.

If you are already a theatre reviewer with your own online presence, contact us as justaskus@anywhere.is to organise reviewer tickets.

A Performance at your place

We are interested in any locations that is not a performance space - backyard, office, heritage home, warehouse, park - anywhere but a theatre.

We give preference to venues that provide the space rent free to artists with the artists to use the space "as is" to make the most of the space instead of setting it up as a theatre.

Be an Anywhere Photographer

Rehearsal and backstage shenanigans, show night spectaculars, and of course the audience's reactions. All photographs are attributed and linked to your social media or website.
