A fleeting utopia, a glimpse into possible futures for Central Australia. 18 August – 7 September.

Expression Sessions

Join us at Expression Sessions, an opportunity for performers in Alice Springs to share their talents and be part of the DESERT FESTIVAL in a nurturing environment.

Expression Sessions is open to all performing artists. Whether your speciality is music, theatre, dance, spoken word, mime, puppetry, or something else, we want to hear from you! Performance slots will be 10 minutes in length, and four performers from the sessions will be invited to perform at the final session, which is the Expression Sessions Showcase.

All performers who are invited to perform at the Expression Sessions Showcase will be offered the opportunity to be added to Red Hot Arts’ roster of performing artists. At the conclusion of the Showcase, the Festival team will choose one participant to receive a 12-month DESERT FESTIVAL Performing Artist Development Package.

The Sessions will take place at The Desert Gardens between Friday 25 August and Thursday 31 August, with the Showcase taking place on Friday 1 September at Monte’s Lounge.
