Melbourne 47 is a site-specific performance festival celebrating of 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.
To commemorate 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 an assortment of performances, some serious, some scurrilous, some surprising, some lasting days, some lasting minutes, some in the well-known sites and some revealing the hidden sides.
Melbourne 47 celebrates the many meanings of Melbourne, of the Senses of the City.
