Welcome to the first edition of the Carnival Chronicals. We hope you are enjoying the season as much as we are!
It has now rained in Brisbane for 3 weeks in a row,
which has meant
unseasonably few workshops for October! Yet, we have had a very busy
month with public shows at the Bellingen Global Carnival, Murgon Grape
, Pine Rivers’ Outside & Alive Festival, Reclaim the
Night, the Manly Halloween Festival, and World Vegan Day to top it all
off just yesterday! Thanks to everyone who joined us and came to say
‘hi’ at these events!
The Carnival has recruited some of Brisbane’s finest fire talent and
also sourced some amazing artists from overseas to create a monstrous
one-off fire spectacular at the Earthcore Global Carnival’s Queensland
debut this December. This collaborative feature fire performance may
never again be repeated, so get your Earthcore tickets soon if you
don’t want to miss it! Checkout www.earthcore.com.au
for the full
lineup and ticketing details.
Woodford Folk Festival
27 Dec - 2 Jan
The Carnival is gearing up for a week of street theatre performances at
the Woodford Folk Festival. We will be performing most nights of the
event. Check out their online programme
for show times and the extraordinary lineup this year. This year, a very special venue will debut at the festival, Circadia!
This is a dedicated juggle / twirling / dancing / workshop / playing
space. You will find us there jamming with other circus kids throughout
much of this beautiful festival! Important ticketing information:
for the first time, you will not be able to buy Woodford tickets at the
gate (yes, even for day tickets). You will need to pre-purchase all
tickets via their website: www.woodfordfolkfestival.com
