Some of the acts to delight you at The Portal

With only a couple of days to go until we close another year out, the beloved Byron Theatre will be transformed into a mind-blowing playground, The Portal, where senses will be transported into another realm.

Co-creator Corr Piccone says he wants people to feel amazement at the incredible talent that we have here in the Bay and the concept of combining incredible jaw-dropping theatre with a full-scale dance party. ‘The melodic and progressive house and techno will blow people away.’

A life-long ‘Burner’ and owner of Flow Music, Piccone says the team is thrilled by the calibre of artists they can bring to the community, including renowned German DJ, Dave Dinger, and visionary spoken wordsmith, Darpan.

‘Darpan needs very little introduction, especially to the Byron community,’ says Piccone. ‘We could not be more honoured to have him involved, sharing his incredible spoken word ‘Metamorphosis’ for the opening, as well as his ‘A New Vision’ for the closing.

Not only will guests be wowed with a full night of entertainment, but two full bars, an elixir bar and free face and body painting will allow those willing to enhance their experience.

Byron Theatre, Friday, 30 December at 7.33pm.
