Darlinghurst Theatre Company (DTC) has commenced its month-long Bloom Festival, combining culture, entertainment, and dining to create a truly immersive experience.
The company’s CEO and Co-Artistic Director Glenn Terry, and Co-Artistic Director Amylia Harris have revitalised the theatre space and discovered new ways of captivating audiences as government restrictions on public gatherings ease.
Speaking about the festival, Harris said, “The world has changed and, as an arts organisation, we must listen and respond. We can’t simply pick up where we left off. It’s time to explore the new normal.
“We have to embrace the opportunities we have right now. We want our audiences, our artists and the whole community to come on this journey with us and explore what it means to congregate and how we want to tell our stories moving forward.”
This festival follows the DTC’s successful season of Red Carpet Cabaret earlier this year.
The Bloom Festival will include a number of unmissable acts including Odette, the Hot Potato Band, Marissa Saroca, Frida Deguise and more.
The month-long event will have something for everyone, with cabaret shows, comedy, panel discussions, and cross disciplinary performances.
The festival runs until November 29, with performances from Wednesday to Sunday each week.
Until Nov 29. Eternity Playhouse, 39 Burton St, Darlinghurst. $27-$54+b.f. Tickets & Info: www.darlinghursttheatre.com
