Hit the streets of Parramatta this month as it transforms into an eclectic, ten-day treasure hunt for the Anywhere Festival. After four successful years in its Brisbane home, Anywhere's philosophy of exciting performances in surprising venues is stirring Parramatta with a program of 28 local and interstate talents across theatre, music, comedy, dance, visual arts and film.

Forget what your mum told you about appropriate venues, as people can perform literally anywhere during this festival, including a photography darkroom, a car park and a toilet (too bad this last one isn't available for Mother's Day). Visitors are encouraged to check out multiple shows, thanks to affordable prices, and experience an alternative version of Parramatta.

Festival highlights include a multimedia story of female convicts at the powerful Female Factory, a musical voyage to an Indian palace, a dystopic city tour, and Jean-Claude Van Damme in an old Chinese restaurant.
