  • Chapel Street South Yarra, VIC, 3141 Australia (map)

Step into the a provocative world of music, theatre and mind-altering art, featuring internationally renowned acts performing across the entire precinct and taking the diverse day and intriguing after-dark world of Chapel Street to a completely unexpected level.

Throughout the day, catch roving performances along Chapel Street; join one of the Art Walks and be surprised by what is in Chapel Street’s backyard; or become mesmorised as our superstar street artist creates the area’s new iconic mural.

Each night from 6:45pm, enter the throbbing heart of the festival in the Main Tent to see two astounding cabarets which have gained world acclaim. Alternatively, running on the same nights as the Main Tent, you can enter the intimate surroundings of the MC Theatre in Prahran to join Australia’s own psycho-siren Leah Shelton in her award-winning show, Terror Australis.

If you’re feeling like a good laugh we’ve got the shows for you. Join Bourgeois & Maurice for their post-modern, post-gender world as they traverse their most hilarious, scathing and joyfully cynical show yet. Or laugh along with Adriano Cappelletta in his self-deprecating humour and old school nightclub dancing as he tells his tales of his obstacles on the way to tasting true romance.

Finally, arouse those tastebuds and heighten the sense of smell by joining us for a Dinner in the Dark.

Be provoked, aroused, and challenged.

Lose yourself in Provocare, July 20 to 30, 2017.
