Brisbane's most decadent festival returns with dystopian comedy and a real-life recreation of 'Die Hard'.
Where you can you relive the music of Twin Peaks and watch Die Hard take place in one of Brisbane's landmarks — and see amusing dystopian sketches inspired by Black Mirror, too? At this year's Wonderland Festival, which promises a treasure trove of inventive fun for pop culture fans, plus plenty more as well.
Returning for the fest's sixth year, the Brisbane Powerhouse-hosted event features 28 shows between Thursday, November 21 to Sunday, December 1. Yes, it's going to be a busy nine days. Other highlights include Awesome Ocean Party, which is described as "a magic-realism-cabaret cross birthday party hosted by a woman who believes she is half octopus"; Dwell, which turns the audience into voyeurs peeking into a seedy hotel room; and the latest body-positive offering from Baby Got Back, complete with dancers, comedians, strippers, showgirls, puppeteers and burlesque artists.
Adults-only circus shows, a free 1960s swing party and and a tribute to Nina Simone are all also on the bill, because this is an eclectic lineup. So are electrifying vocals and eye-popping acrobatics, all across a huge feast of weird and wonderful theatre, art, music, magic, burlesque, circus, cabaret and comedy.
