Bliss

Bliss

May 3 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
|Recurring Event (See all)
Fri to Sun

Following the disappearance of a housemate, five friends set out to find his whereabouts, or means by which he meant missing. In their desperate attempts to find their friend, the group begins to turn on one another leading to irreversible consequences.

As part of the 2016 Anywhere Festival Bliss will allow the audience to play an active role in forging their own path through its branching and interwoven narratives. By using promenade theatre, audiences are immersed in a descent into deceit and distrust, as wounds reopen and secrets are revealed. As the night progresses, old friends and new acquaintances begin to question each other's innocence, and questions of guilt and accountability threaten to destabilise the group.

Enjoy a Clock Tower Tour for a special insight into the newly restored Brisbane City Hall, one of Brisbane’s most iconic buildings and the symbolic heart of our city. Tours operate daily taking visitors up the Brisbane City Hall Clock Tower in a beautiful, old, hand-operated lift, providing a bird‚™’s-eye view of the city.

The clock tower has been in operation since the opening of City Hall in 1930, and is 92 metres high with an observation platform at 76 metres, which people can walk out onto to absorb the unique view of Brisbane. Our city is ever-changing – what better a platform to watch from. Over the years, hundreds of thousands of visitors have taken a ride up to the clock tower. Whilst the view from the observation deck has changed significantly over the past 80 years, it is still a time-honoured tradition which will continue with the new Museum of Brisbane.

What happens when a council worker discovers an ambassador naked in a wheelie bin?

Room to Play returns from sell-out seasons in 2015 with a one-act farce on society's foolish pretensions around identity, class and status.

Two council workers pass time conversing about divinity, while an ambassador is caught in the act of a love affair and winds up in a wheelie bin naked. Finding clothes is full of clowning, slapstick and vaudeville-style song and dance.

Where do we wear our clothing? How does our ‘uniform’ define how we are treated? Outrageous, outlandish and out of control!

With a team of experienced improvisers (schooled in Al Wunder’s theatre of the ordinary and known as Wunderfools), Dr LouP will facilitate walking encounters to switch on your embodied sensorial awareness with others and the environment to cultivate connection to others and place.

The voice of a people. The voice of an age. How does one voice tell the story of a chorus and how does a chorus tell the story of the first world... And all of their problems?

The Gods are enraged.

In a world saturated with pop culture, selfie's, narcissism, vanity and the hunger for everyone's 15 minutes, how can an ancient God, transported from Ancient Greece where only a first world existed, become the chorus of the modern day to save it from self-destruction in a time when the Gods have lost their powers in deciding the people's fate and when the people play God by taking fate into their own hands.

Conversations with Goddesses

May 9 @ 7:30 pm - 9:15 pm
|Recurring Event (See all)
Daily

Once you’ve slept with all the gods on Mount Olympus, what’s a goddess to do? Aphrodite, Goddess of Love, Sex and Creativity, returns to Earth to find the reincarnation of her true love, Adonis. When she arrives, she finds that humanity is almost as desperate as she is.

Moved by our plight, Aphrodite decides to stay for 90 minutes (what else would love do?) to save humanity from self-destruction. Assisted by Technophelia, Goddess of Wi-fi and goddess in training, Aphrodite summons four other goddesses — Morrigan, the swearing goddess of vengeance, Persephone, depressed goddess of the underworld, Diana, goddess of the moon and party animal, and Quan Yin, gentle goddess of compassion. With their help, Aphrodite hopes to heal our psychological wounds and restore the sacred masculine and feminine – and pick up a hot young spunk while she’s at it.

SX+: The Sex-Positive Art Show

May 10 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm

SX+ brings together a diverse range of visual artists with one thing in common: sex-positivity.

What does sex-positive really mean? How does it manifest within the arts? With an intersectional and feminist focus, the exhibition seeks to address these questions and open up dialogue and discussion surrounding contemporary experiences of sex and sexuality.

This one-night only event features artists working across a range of traditional and contemporary forms, with a cabaret-style venue lending itself to performance art and new media. Fortitude Valley's 'Prestige' is a unique multi-level bar and function venue with exquisite heritage styling and a top-shelf liquor selection to match.

The Name / For a Drowned Love

|Recurring Event (See all)
Weekly on the same day until May 17, 2016

In these depths,
all is felt through skin
through smooth tips of fingers,
of lips,
of tongues,
the rest gently melts away.

Or, a good excuse to go to a bar and drown your post-breakup sorrows.
