The Rivoli - Kangaroo Valley - South Coast NSW
Loading Events

From the early 1930s to the late 1960s, the Rivoli Dance Palace in Parramatta was Western Sydney’s favourite dance hall. Demolished in 1973 to make way for an office development, now nothing remains of ‘The Riv’ except the stories of the people who danced there.

Featuring some of Australia’s best dancers and a stellar live band, Dance Makers Collective’s The Rivoli is an immersive dance hall meets dance theatre performance. Throughout this work, you’ll hear the voices of people who danced at The Rivoli, as well as the voices of those who dance now, in this town. Your town.

A hit at Sydney Festival 2020, this joyous production invites you and your favourite dance partner to be swept into a mesmerising exploration of mid-century nightlife, desire and social connection.
