Songs of Longing | The Taxithi Project

Today, the very fabric of nations is woven with the diversity, energy, enterprise and hard work of its people, including those that come to stay. The Taxithi Project and their Songs of Longing encapsulate the contribution of these precious people and their stories.

Wonders | Scott Silven

Hypnotic, entertaining or just a load of bull?

Grand Finale | Hofesh Schecter Company

Israeli choreographer Hofesh Shechter is no stranger to Melbourne audiences – his pulsing contemporary dance has featured regularly in the Melbourne Festival.

What Girls Are Made Of | Cora Bisset

A deeply engaging performer, Bisset has a powerhouse voice and stand out stage presence.

Rite of Spring | Yang Liping Contemporary Dance

It’s a complicated, fussy work, visually powerful and conceptually cumbersome. While it does not fully hold together, Rite of Spring’s design and spectacle make for a unique experience if viewers are happy to just let it all wash over them and not worry about connecting all the dots.

Diaspora | Chamber Made and Robin Fox

Diaspora offers the audience a vision of a distant imagined future and wow, what a vision it is!

Anthem | Melbourne International Arts Festival

There’s a great deal happening in Anthem, a cross section of humanity meets and the differing opinions and cultures make for great people watching.
