The Village is a Centenary of Canberra project, the program features an eclectic mix of local and interstate artists, undertaking works of theatre, cabaret, puppetry, circus, spoken word, sideshow and a range of workshops, games and participatory works (including the Villages legendary So You Think You Can Interperative Dance Competition).
On Thursday the 21st The Village will be host to the Own Grown Market Day. This wonderful event will feature produce grown in the market gardens of Canberra schools.
The Village will have great food, drinks and coffee. Dancing every night and fabulous stuff for children on the weekend days.
A major highlight of the program is a new work by the 1990s Canberra theatre collective Splinters. The work, titled Babylon, will be performed by the disparate Splinters alumni each evening
