From dusk till late, Babylon will envelop Kensington Street’s pedestrianised precinct to become a wild street party catering to your inner Libertine. With 35 eateries and bars, expect an ostentatious night of art, culture, risk, food, eroticism, flowing drinks and dancing.
Descend into decadence as the precinct transforms into the wicked and wondrous Hanging Gardens of Babylon and lush green columns decorated with twisted vines and intertwining shrubs. Enjoy the hypnotic Fire-tree that burns bright and wild; a totem of dangerous beauty set in metal and fire.
Expect roving performers and entertainment, curated by Sydney’s erotic provocateur, Porcelain Alice. Happen upon conjured exotic and erotic woodland nymphs adorned with Babylonian botanic headpieces, spinners of blood-red fairy floss for you to devour, The Bubble Goddess and her spheres of etherial beauty, a Babylonian flash mob, a mystical Tarot reader, artists of the fire hula hoop, fire breathers, stilts walkers, the Formidable Champagne Twins, and other-worldly contortionists.
Indulge your appetites in the wickedly exotic hawker stalls of Spice Alley, or let your wild self dance and revel in artistic self-expression with the multitude of dance parties and DJs playing.
This free event is on Saturday 17 September, dusk till late. 18+
