Tickets to Exodus can be pre-purchased online here and selecting your date option


Presented by D.I.V.E. Theatre Collective and gaining inspiration from the stories of local migrants, Exodus is a collectively-devised contemporary physical theatre performance that focuses on real and metaphorical migrations, raising the question - what unites people who decide to leave their native land?

From mass migrations of people to the uneasiness experienced by a new immigrant arriving in a new territory, Exodus is performed in different languages and depicts characters who leave physical and imaginary lands and reunite in the poetic sphere.

Exodus relooks at episodes in the history of migration in Australia; questions the meaning of the exodus and examines the dreams of those who undertake the transit journey.

In 2021, Sunshine Coast Council and Noosa Council are continuing their support to make it possible for the Anywhere Festival to support artists to present independently. This year's Anywhere Festival is showcasing a stellar selection of shows, with the hope that in 2022 the Anywhere Festival will return with a full festival for the Sunshine Coast and Noosa regions.
