With the Broncos and Lions now sidelined for the football off-season there’s time for a little culture, and Brisbane’s inner city has a steady supply of entertainment options. This weekend’s Valley Fiesta takes over Fortitude Valley with 60 acts performing live across 3 outdoor stages. Local girl Katie Noonan (of ‘george’ fame) is one of the stars in a weekend of fashion, music and dancing – all the things the Valley’s best known for.
If something more sedate’s your style the Brisbane Writer’s Festival brings together over 260 authors from around the world and around our own suburbs, with group readings, book discussions and “spontaneous public poetry recitings”! Get along to the State Library (well worth a visit if you haven’t seen this vastly improved venue lately) and New Farm’s Powerhouse.
And the latest offering from Queensland Ballet kicks off from September 28th, their “With Attitude” series at QPAC. Two shows in one with “Petrushka”, a classic ballet where “three lives intersect in a triangle of manipulative and misplaced love” (sounds like Desperate Housewives!) then “Beyond the Barre”, choreographed by QB’s own Artistic Director François Klaus.
