Returning for its fifth year, the Sydney Opera House’s All About Women festival will be shaking things up on Sunday March 5.

Thousands of women are expected to attend the annual All About Women festival, a day of talks and performances that will shine a light on the voices of women. Many of the major talks and performances have already had their allocations exhausted. But never fear, the festival has announced new shows – and better yet, they’re free! 

 

For History Of The World (In Five Hours), theatremakers Mish Grigor and Natalie Rose will take a retrospective look at history, and weave in stories that they collect at the festival. Watch them make herstory as they reinvent every moment in time – all within five hours. 

 

Also, from Friday February 24 to Wednesday March 8, the Western Broadwalk will host Standing Rock: Protesting The Dakota Access Pipeline. The exhibit features the portraits of women who took part in last year’s protest at the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in North Dakota. 

The All About Women Festival will be held at the Sydney Opera House on Sunday March 5. The festival will involve a lineup of panels, talks and performances, including free events.
