Cabaret: Adelaide Cabaret Festival

Director Kate Ceberano
Adelaide Festival Centre 
8 – 23 June 2012
Mark Nadler and Kate Ceberano
The story goes that Kate Ceberano has had five gowns, all of the same silver glitter fabric, made for the Adelaide Cabaret Festival. As the annual festival’s artistic director and party-gal-in-chief, she’s going to need all of them.
Now in its 12th year, the festival plays out across eight venues, most in the riverside Adelaide Festival Centre, with 48 Australian and international acts performing over 13 days. Centre chief Douglas Gautier says more than 30,000 tickets, or over 90% of targeted sales, had moved by the festival’s first weekend, and with total attendance at its shows, exhibitions, restaurants and bars estimated at 95,000, the festival is among the largest of its kind in the world.
More importantly, it’s part of a year-round fabric of strategic events based around the Festival Centre and Adelaide’s parklands that earn South Australia its “Festival State” tag and contribute substantially to its marketing mix.
