St Kilda’s famous “triangle” will be converted into a glittering entertainment venue in June playing host to a pop up ice rink, comedy, theatre, music, food stalls, carnival rides and more…
Take one triangle of inner city seaside land, fill it with savvy small bars, luscious food stalls, an antique Spiegeltent full of stunning shows, carnival rides, quirky sideshows, a Central Park style ice rink, sparkling lights and roaring fires and you have the warmth and wonder of MAP 57 – St Kilda’s Winter Garden.
MAP 57 is presented by The Gardeners of Unearthly Delights. For 17 years, The Gardeners (Buxton Walker Pty Ltd and Strut & Fret Production House) have presented Australia’s biggest independent live arts carnival, the award winning Garden of Unearthly Delights in Adelaide. The Garden has inspired like events across the globe including The Assembly Gardens in Edinburgh and the Underbelly Festival Southbank London.
Headlining MAP 57’s program is the Melbourne premiere of sizzling new circus show BLANC de BLANC, which will be housed in the stunning decadence of The Aurora Spiegeltent from 15 June – 30 July 2017.
Selling-out its critically acclaimed run at the Sydney Opera House, Brisbane Festival and Adelaide Fringe along with a triumphant season in London’s West End, BLANC de BLANC features the finest cabaret and acrobatic talent from around the world in a wild, shimmering night.
Expect big moves, great tunes, lots of skin and more than a few surprises in a show that will serve up titillating acts to infatuate, illuminate and delight.
From the creative minds behind 2015 Melbourne Festival hit LIMBO and Madonna’s recent Rebel Heart Tour, this new production will have audiences immersed in a world of overflowing champagne bottles, sparkles and glimmer leaving the audience bubbling with excitement.
The Box, a second performance space within MAP 57, will present a program of MUSIC/ COMEDY and a program of family friendly entertainment across the school holidays. The program will be announced late May.
