 Giant Dwarf strongly encourages masks at our venue

a fire relief benefit concert

a call to rain,
to dance again
to rise above the flames.

an opportunity
to rally community,
and give to those in need.

for your generosity,
we will bedazzle thee
with a show! of sorts…

songbirds and foot-stompers,
puppeteers and poets,
will share their special gifts.

a call to fight.
a call to hope.
a call to rain.

For one night and one night only, artists from near and far will unite forces at the Giant Dwarf. The headlining act is award-winning Slovenian puppeteer (and koala lover) Matija Solce, with a “dark object theatre show and music jam”. Supporting Matija will be a host of local talent including musical theatre stars Callan Purcell (Bran Nue Dae, Hair), Jodie Harris (Mary Poppins, The Hatpin), Noah Mullins (West Side Story), Siobhan Clifford (Hi-5), and Phoebe Clark (Meet Me in St Louis), the cast of hit new Aussie musical Schapelle Schapelle, drop-jaw dancing duos Jess Goodfellow/Callum Mooney and Kiara Malcolm Bodle/Kiarn Doyle, emerging singer/songwriters Ivy-Jane Browne, Sarah Levins, Ally Morgan, and Akala Newman, poets Anna Summerhayes and Isaac Forsyth, physical theatre artist John Fabry, and songwriting duo Micaela Ellis and Phillip Lynch.

Hosting the concert is much-loved Sydney actor/comedian Zoë Sitas, and accompanying on keyboard and guitar are muso extraordinaires David Catterall and Oliver Beard.

All Proceeds of this event shall go directly to the Fire Relief Fund for First Nations Communities and the World Wildlife Fund Australia.
