Devi in Absolution
In 2011, Parramasala will be held from Sunday 30 October to Sunday 6 November. This makes eight days of vibrant arts and entertainment in the heart of Parramatta.
The scope of the program will include music, dance, theatre, performance, visual arts and community activity. The whole program will draw artists from Bangladesh, France, India, Sri Lanka, Germany, USA, Australia and further afield.
The biggest element in the 2011 festival will be the diverse music program.
There will be two central Parramatta hubs created for the 2011 festival, within easy walking distance of each other. The Town Hall and St John’s Cathedral square precinct, and the Riverside Theatres and riverbank precinct will both come alive with stages, stalls and performance venues. These hubs are linked by Church Street and are close to public transport and restaurants.
The full program will be launched in September 2011.
