Lights, Music & Ideas Worth Spreading…Oh, and Feathers

24 May

Vivid Festival

It’s that time of year again; Vivid is back with a brand new program of lights, music and ideas! There’s a whole bunch of stuff going on, from light sculptures scattered around the CBD, creative types tackling big issues at the MCA and a huge range of acts playing the Opera House.  This weekend make sure you head along for the lighting of the Opera House sails, the Vivid Sydney Night Markets and maybe even drop by Sony Lounge, the festival’s high-tech pop-up bar. Cut Copy & Architecture In Helsinki are also kicking off the Vivid Live program this Saturday, with plenty more amazing acts to come in the next week. Modular’s Steven Pavlovic has curated a fantastic line up of events for this year’s Vivid Sydney so make sure you check out what’s on http://vividsydney.com/


TEDxSydney

TEDx is back this Saturday with an amazing line-up of speakers. There will be some familiar names, such as The Chaser’s Craig Reucassel, musician Paul Kelly and Silverchair’s Daniel Johns, however the best thing about TEDx is listening to someone talk for 15 minutes about something you’ve never heard about before. There will be plenty of that this year; a bird behaviourist, an astronaut, a biomedical animator and a corporate anthropologist are just some of the speakers featured on the bill.  There are no theatre seats left, but you can still attend the TEDx CarriageWorks forum for free! If your feeling too lazy for that, you can always stream the day live via youtube. Head to the website for more details http://tedxsydney.com/

Australian Burlesque Festival

Good god, the festivals just keep coming. This Friday the Australian Burlesque Festival will be kicking off it’s nationwide tour with a one night only stop at The Red Room. The huge line up of Australian and international acts is bursting with show girls, songstresses and strong men. Yes, there will be one of those old-timey strong men there, as well as a couple of tassel twirlers, acrobats and pole dancers thrown in for good measure. It sold out last year, so burlesque fans should grab their tickets quick smart! http://australianburlesquefest.com/
