Festival-goers can take the opportunity to jump into the action, with a real-life imagining of the classic board game at 'Cluedo! The New Suspects', presented by Brisbane Immersive. . . Or, head to the Judith Wright Centre, don a VR headset and enter an immersive Andean mythological play, 'Prison X', presented by United Notions Film and KOA.XYZ.
The rolling green hills of the Moreton Bay Region will host a collection of comical companions during the 'Tongue In Cheek Winery Tour'.
There will also be plenty on offer for the young ones. At Ipswich's Twilight Circus, you'll find a troupe of young artists taking to the streets in an explosion of colour and creativity. Anywhere Festival Queensland 2021 takes place from 6-23 May.
