Midsumma comes to Wyndham in an explosion of colour and fabulousness, as Park Lounge returns to Kelly Park on Saturday February 8.
Featuring music, performance, and dance – there will be no shortage of entertainment as the great Western sunset descends, revealing a rainbow like no other!
Presented by Wyndham City, Park Lounge is a family-friendly event that explores LGBTQIA+ culture and allows “those voices at the margins” an opportunity to shine brightly.
Tristan Meecham will be hosting the event, entertaining with banter and applause-inspiring costume changes.
PO PO MO CO will be presenting their show ‘Once Upon a Drag Storytime’ – a high energy physical comedy in a fabulous celebration of gender and diverse families, for children and their adults.
Next Jex Lopez takes the stage in a masquerade of a skeleton for a quirky, noir cabaret, then be entranced by Kilia Tipa’s movement-based practice, reflecting on queer belonging and cultural performativity.
Yana Alana and Tha Paranas will lead you in a celebration of difference, a refreshing break from a world obsessed with cookie-cutter celebrity. Yana Alana, the alter ego of Sarah Ward, will take us to this new world of nonconformity with her incredible voice that ranges from Bassey-like to operatic soprano.
Event organisers are excited about the program and can’t wait for people to see what they have in store:
“It’s such a great lineup! Non-stop entertainment for 4 hours straight, and so colourful and interesting – some really great artists in there!”
Enjoy some of the famous curries from local Sri Lankan restaurant Fusion Ceylon, and grab yourself a drink from the pop-up bar. Bring a picnic rug and let your senses embrace the kaleidoscope on offer.
Saturday 8 February, 5 – 9pm @Kelly Park.
