Melbourne 47 is a site-specific performance festival celebrating the City of Melbourne: the streets, the people, the life, the action, the quiet, hidden corners, the stories and histories, sometimes uplifting, sometimes troubled, the many atmospheres which make this vibrant, diverse city the living place it is.
In reference to the declaration of Melbourne as a city by Queen Victoria in 1847, the Environmental Performance Authority is staging 47 performances around the streets, parks and buildings of the city. Between November 12 and December 12, the city comes alive with a wild assortment of performances, some serious, some scurrilous, some surprising, some lasting days, some lasting minutes, some in the well-known sites and some revealing hidden or lesser-known places. Many are participatory events, inviting audiences to open their imaginations and senses to the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of the city.
