Following a jam-packed 2022 edition of Sydney Festival, the annual music, art and theatre festival is hitting the road for an exciting new initiative that will take recordings of the program to regional towns. The Sydney Festival Roadshow will be kicking off on Friday, May 20 and will see recordings of four shows from the January program shown in 30 different regional hubs across Australia.

The four performances that will be shown are Western Sydney collective Kurinji's family drama 宿 (stay), family-friendly dinosaur show Erth's Prehistoric Picnic, group dance piece The Pulse and Italian Baroque with Circa's mix of circus performance and live orchestral music.

The screens are set to pop up in theatres, cinemas, breweries, art centres, cafes, shopping centres and town halls across regional Australia. The roadshow will hit up 20 NSW cities and towns, plus two in Victoria, two in Western Australia, three in Queensland and a three-week residency on Norfolk Island.

Each regional hub will have a different schedule for screening. Head to the Sydney Festival website to find the full schedule of screening times for each of the regional locations.

"The importance of art and culture in regional communities cannot be underestimated – to support connectedness, health and wellbeing, generating inspirational change and fostering new talent," said Sydney Festival Director Olivia Ansell.

Further screenings of the performances are planned to take place across the ditch in New Zealand with dates and details yet to be announced.
