Lights On

Bask in exclusive new works developed by leading Brisbane companies and creative artists emerging from isolation.

Lights On at Brisbane Powerhouse is a curated series of bespoke shows; a limited season created for small audiences and a re-imagined venue.

Songs From Your Shutdown features iconic Brisbane singer-songwriter Robert Forster (The Go-Betweens) hosting an evening with Darren Hanlon, Sycco and Minor Premiers to share their stories and songs created during lockdown.

Presented with QMusic, hear the music and stories that represent the highlights, low-lights and late nights of self-isolation as these artists plug back in and reconnect for this unique performance.  

Be the first to experience the buzz of live performance again. It’s time to reconnect and shine a light on our extraordinary local arts community.

Celebrate our reopening and make the most of your night out by enjoying a cabaret platter for two and a bottle of wine, bubbles or champagne while you enjoy the performance.
