An Australian exclusive, Kiss & Cry is a sweeping cinematic romance with a twist, starring a duo of dexterous, dancing hands. A collaboration between prize-winning filmmaker Jaco Van Dormael and choreographer Michele Anne De May, this sensual, small-scale ballet must be seen to be believed.

Music takes centre stage at Sydney Festival in 2015 as Brazil’s superstar Seu Jorge brings his signature mix of transformative pop and swinging tunes from Rio’s colourful favelas to Australia for the first time.

The sounds of Africa bring the futuristic grooves of Nigerian synth pioneer and music legend William Onyeabor, to Sydney in Atomic Bomb! The Music of William Onyeabor. The Australian exclusive performance will feature a star studded line-up featuring Gotye, Sinkane, Money Mark (Beastie Boys), Luke Jenner (The Rapture), Alexis Taylor (Hot Chip) and many more.

Sydneysiders know Sydney Festival is one of the most wonderful summer festivals in the world  a claim underpinned by the city’s lustre and charisma, making it an ideal showcase for the world’s great artists.
