This December, the outdoor Powerhouse Plaza at the Brisbane Powerhouse will be transformed into a night-time playground for a brand new festival – Wonderland.
An explosive carnival of alternative comedy, cabaret, circus and music, Wonderland will run from Friday 5 to Sunday 14 December 2014 and a callout for additional artist submissions has just been released.
“There will be a mad bunch of carnies and gypsies and a host of other shows,” says Artistic Director Kris Stewart. This is an indoor/outdoor festival where “people can grab a drink at the bar and relax under the stars or come inside and explore the bizarre and wonderful performances occurring throughout the venue,” says Stewart.
The program includes the weird, the wonderful, and the unexpected with acts such as the Kransky Sisters, Topology, and the boys from Briefs will be back with their wild burlesque show.
Artists submissions are now open with particular encouragement to those who sit outside the ordinary; street performers, slam poets, singers, comedians, and circus performers.
Submissions close on Friday 22 August 2014. Full submission guidelines and a downloadable registration form are available at brisbanepowerhouse.org/festivals/wonderland.
