Akram Khan

He’s arguably the greatest male dancer in the world but while Akram Khan’s company may be well known in Australia, seeing the man himself is a much more rare event. Now it’s your last chance: Khan has announced that with this breathtaking brand new solo piece he will retire from the stage. An Australian première, exclusive to Adelaide.

The Far Side of the Moon

The most loved work by Robert Lepage finally comes to Adelaide. Performed as a virtuosic solo, the story of two brothers- one successful, one permanently upstaged- gradually becomes entwined in the history of the Soviet-US space race. Witty, endearing, intelligent and dazzlingly staged it’s the most profoundly satisfying piece of theatre you’re ever likely to see.

Grace Jones

The art-rock aristocracy may have lost its king and crown prince but there remains one star with that level of skill, mystique and otherworldly androgyny: Grace Jones. Seemingly ageless, her latest festival gigs have been leaving audiences and reviewers around the world gasping at the spectacle, the spontaneity, the simultaneous warmth and danger of her stage presence.

Human Requiem

Yes, this is one of the greatest choirs in the world singing Brahms, but it’s no concert. Until they reveal their radiant voices the performers could have walked in with you from the street. For seventy minutes you are literally inside the music as they move amongst you singing from memory a masterwork about death that offers sublime comfort for the living.
Tickets $99


King of War

Toneelgroep Amsterdam (Roman Tragedies) return to Adelaide with this gripping four hour conflation of five history plays by Shakespeare, presented by 14 actors in modern dress on a massive set with cinema sized high definition video. Shakespeare’s grim vision of the tight bond between war and power-lust by the men at the top hits us with white-hot 21st century pertinence.

The Lost and Found Orchestra

From the creators of STOMP, this musical extravaganza will blast the hats off the whole family.

Olivier Award winning young Australian Simon Stone is one of the most sought after theatre directors in the world today. If you only know his feature The Daughter this landmark 2010 production will show you why. A chilling reimagining of the grisliest of ancient Greek myths, it’s perhaps the most disturbing, funny, beautiful and unforgettable 90 minutes of Australian theatre you will ever experience.

The Triplets of Belleville

In 2003, this surreal animated feature won hearts and awards across the globe, largely thanks to its brilliant score by Benoit Charest, which grabbed audiences by the ears and dragged them into the streets of 1920’s Paris and New York. Hear Benoit and his band recreate the music and sound effects live as the film is beamed onto the big screen.

The ghastly 2004 siege by Chechen terrorists at Beslan School ended with the death of some 300 children. This extraordinary piece from the Belgian youth theatre company Bronks, tells the story entirely through the clear eyes of a girl and a boy who were on the inside. Their innocence in the face of adult atrocity is powerfully moving.
Tickets $59
