Three World Premieres, Four Australian Exclusives and an Installation of 1.1 Million Balls, All Heading to Sydney Festival This Summer

Exclusive to Sydney this Summer, the Cutaway at Barangaroo Reserve will be transformed into a surreal beach comprising 1.1 million translucent balls; the essence of Sydney will be distilled into a singular scent; and a team of contemporary dancers will perform an adrenaline-fuelled ‘soccer’ match as part of the eclectic line-up at Sydney Festival 2017.

A strategic partnership between Destination NSW, the NSW Government’s tourism and major events agency, and Sydney Festival will see three world premieres and four Australian exclusive events debut in the State’s capital for the ground-breaking January 7-29 festival.

In a world premiere also certain to attract attention, Sydney Dance Company and Art Gallery of NSW will collaborate in Nude Live to explore the naked human form through dance in response to artworks featured in the major summer exhibition Nude: art from the Tate collection. Sydney Festival will launch Circus City in 2017, with Canada’s Cirque √Čloize headlining the program with the international sensation iD; a high-energy blend of circus arts and urban dance featuring acrobats, aerialists coming exclusively to Sydney.
