Sydney Festival 2020

Jan 08 -

Jan 26

It's time to come together.

Sydney’s annual celebration of theatre, music, dance and art has kicked off today, with three weeks of amazing events ahead of us.

Festival director Wesley Enoch has emphasised the importance of this community-focused event amidst the bushfires that have so heavily impacted New South Wales and the entire country.

He explains, “At times like this, the importance of gathering as a community is self-evident, and I firmly believe that artists, and the arts, play a vital role in giving us strength and supporting resilience – stepping up to help tell our stories, to make sense of our collective experiences, and to lift our spirits when we so desperately need it.”

To start off the festival, Indigenous artist Jacob Nash will see his large-scale installation Proclamation at Barangaroo Reserve.

Other highlights include literature-theatre hybrid Joan Didion’s The White Album by director Lars Jan, family-friendly puppet show, Laser Beak Man, and the Flying Fruit Fly Circus’ Time Flies performance.

A special fundraising concert for Red Cross Disaster Relief, Recovery Appeal and WIRES will take place on January 11, featuring Regurgitator, Custard, Dan Sultan, Polish Club and Art vs. Science.
