Midsumma Festival

Various Venues, Melbourne, Victoria, 3000
19 Jan - 10 Feb 2019

Midsumma Festival is Melbourne’s preeminent queer arts and cultural festival. Celebrating the LGBTQIA+ communities, Midsumma offers audiences a diverse array of spectacular performances, talks and social events with leading international, national and local artists.

In 2019 Midsumma Festival will unite around the theme of "Body" - a suite of programming for and by Victoria’s trans, gender diverse and intersex communities. Championing the notion that individuals should have sovereignty over their own bodies, this initiative amplifies the cultural voices of marginalised queer voices, allowing them to set their own social and political agenda.

One of the highlights is MDLSX by Motus – a revolutionary intersex performance by international artist Silvia Calderoni.

Another highlight comes from cabaret icons Maude Davey and Mama Alto - Gender Euphoria is an explosive and joyous new variety work which celebrates trans and gender diverse identities. From Raina Peterson whose critically acclaimed Bent Bollywood was a major hit in last year’s festival, Third Nature is an Indian contemporary dance show which explores trans identity.

Midsumma Extravaganza returns in all its comic glory, boasting another fierce line up featuring Yummy, Zoe Coombs Marr, Mama Alto, Trevor Ashley, Carlotta, Joel Creasey and more, together with a rocking live band.
