"Inside, for those who managed to wrangle themselves a ticket, was a veritable treasure house: the ideal blend of kick ass performers, and imagination revving spectacles of beauty and evocation."
Welcome to the world of Alexis Wright's Carpentaria
Angel’s Palace is an immersive literary experience first presented at Brisbane Writers Festival 2017. Paying tribute to Carpentaria, Alexis Wright’s monumental, award winning work and designed by acclaimed Brisbane-based artist Gordon Hookey, it is a multi-media venue with performances and installations brought to life by creative collaborators, including creative producer Alethea Beetson. Angel's Palace represents the voices of Indigenous Australia and celebrates First Nations storytelling and literature in a powerful experience for audiences.
Join us in 2019 to experience Angel's Palace. Special performances of Carpentaria will take place throughout the Festival, as well as panel discussions and author talks.
