World Theatre Festival 12

The best independent theatre from Italy, Belarus, India, United States, Ireland, New Zealand and Australia will hit the stage at World Theatre Festival 2012, along with forums, masterclasses and a new Festival Lounge with free live music and Wi-Fi, at the Brisbane Powerhouse from 16 – 26 February 2012.

According to Artistic Director Andrew Ross World Theatre Festival 2012 is a chance for everyone in Brisbane to get involved in theatre and see the world from a different angle.

”I think one of the things this year’s festival does well is provide everyone with something to suit their interests. From video goggle adventures for techies, classic drama for theatre-lovers and installations for art enthusiasts, there’s something for everyone.”
Queensland Premier Anna Bligh welcomed the festival back to Brisbane for its second year.

“Events like this further cement Queensland’s reputation as a dynamic arts and cultural hub, adding to a rich calendar of events which also include the upcoming QPAC International Series and Matisse: Drawing Life exhibition,” Ms Bligh said.

“The World Theatre Festival is expected to attract around 5,000 attendees – that’s good for the city, local business and local jobs.

“That’s why the Queensland Government is investing in events like the World Theatre Festival through Events Queensland as part of our record $174 million investment in events over the next four years.”
