March is a big month for Adelaide as the city comes alive with three big festivals – Adelaide Festival, Adelaide Fringe Festival and WOMADelaide. Get set for spectacular art installations, performance pieces, music, comedy, writers and so much more.
Adelaide Festival launches this Friday, running from 2 – 18 March, bringing an incredible list of international artists – Taiwan’s renowned Cloud Gate Opera bring the beauty of calligraphy to life, film score maestro Ennio Morricone conducts the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra, and avant-garde director Krzysztof Warlikowski adapts a Streetcar Named Desire with France’s Theatre de L’Europe.
Plus more locally, Sydney Theatre Company and contemporary dance company Force Majeure perform Never Did Me Any Harm (watch a sneak-peek and go behind the scenes with the cast, here) and Australian Dance Theatre‘s world premiere performance of Proximity. Also featured as part of the Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art will be Daniel Crookes, the first Australian to be nominated for Singapore’s Signature Art Prize.
Kicking off on 9 March, WOMADelaide will bring together some of the biggest names in world music – Sweden’s First Aid Kit, Baaba Mal from Senegal and French-Creole artist Tété, alongside locals Blue King Brown, Gurrumul, Shane Howard and many more.
Plus Adelaide Fringe Festival comes alive again until 18 March; from bizarre comedies to black drama, you’ll never know what to expect in the Garden of Unearthly Delights.
