Government restrictions forced the cancellation of Feast's major closing event, Picnic In The Park, which attracts around 3,500 people. But the festival isn't over yet! Feast is about community, queer arts and culture, and there are still numerous cabaret, theatre, literature, tours and community events taking place as a little pot of gold at the end of the Pridevember rainbow.
"Last week’s lockdown was all too familiar and had a devastating effect not only on Feast but the rest of our South Australian community," Feast CEO Helen Sheldon says.
"However, we are a resilient and creative bunch. Many of our Feast events have been rescheduled or are now being delivered in a digital capacity so audiences don’t miss out and are COVID safe."
Among the rescheduled shows is 'Self Isolation Songbook' by Phi Theodoros aka The Ukulele Dream Girl, which has now been moved online.
"It’s pretty ironic that my show about dealing with isolation and the digital overload we all felt during the peak of COVID, is now only a livestream performance this Pridevember," Phi says.
"The show explores the need for us to find meaningful and safe ways to stay connected during a time of fear and uncertainty. Postponing the in-person shows and focusing on the livestream is my way of encouraging people to stay safe but still connect with the importance of stories and a sense of community."
