Climate Century is presented in Port Adelaide across three weeks, at the Waterside Workers Hall, on and around the Port River, and at the iconic Hart’s Mill. The public program has something for everyone – live art, dance, music, video and sculptural installations, and a series of talks, workshops and very special events.
Hills Musical Company presents Avenue Q
Date Fri 9th Nov 2018 to Sat 24th Nov 2018
Avenue Q is a gut-bustlingly hilarious puppet-filled modern musical that follows a group of 20-somethings seeking their purpose in big-city life. The show addresses humorous adult issues in a place where puppets are friends, Monsters are good and life lessons are learned. Winner of the TONY “Triple Crown” for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book, Avenue Q is part flesh, part felt, and packed with heart.

Inspired by beloved children’s shows, Avenue Q creates a puppet-filled world that is a little more reflective of the difficult, R-rated realities that we face when we learn that real life isn’t as simple as we dreamed it might be – but perhaps, suggests Avenue Q, life is all the more colourful and worthwhile for it.

Rated MA15+ Avenue Q contains adult themes and sexual references and is not suitable for kids!

The Gods of Strangers

Presented by State Theatre Company

By Elena Carapetis
Keith Michell Theatre, Port Pirie - November 9 and 10
Dunstan Playhouse - November 14-December 2

It’s 1947. Two women in Port Pirie greet unexpected guests at their doors. At one: a man looking for shelter, work and to leave his past behind him. At the other: a woman seeking someone she has lost, and something that was stolen from her.

It is said that if a stranger knocks on your door, you let them in – they could be a god in disguise. But, what do they bring in with them?

Inspired by the oral histories of Greek, Cypriot and Italian migrants to regional SA, this historical fiction explores the untold struggles of belonging, identity and family in post World War II Australia. Featuring Dina Panozzo (Packed to the Rafters), Renato Musolino (1984) and Eugenia Fragos (Things I Know To Be True), this family drama has been written from the heart, especially for State Theatre Company by Resident Artist and Greek Cypriot descendant Elena Carapetis.

The Gods of Strangers is a trilingual performance. It will be performed in English, with sections performed in Greek and Italian with English surtitles.

Freedom & Joy
Date Fri 16th Nov 2018 to Sat 17th Nov 2018
“Be embraced, you millions! This kiss is for the whole world!”

The Ninth. As we reach 100 years since the 1918 Armistice, Beethoven’s immortal appeal for the world to come together as one still needs to be heard. For three long movements the orchestra struggles alone. Then singers and chorus join to create a spine-tingling outpouring of joy, filling the Adelaide Town Hall with hope and light.

Leonard Bernstein famously conducted this symphony on Christmas Day after the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, changing Schiller’s Ode to Joy (“Freude”) into an Ode to Freedom (“Freiheit”). We close off Bernstein’s centenary year by celebrating with his popular, idiosyncratic settings of Hebrew psalms. The choir ends by reaffirming “how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell together in unity.”

Renowned for her co-creations Flat on your Bacharach, Women with Standards and Joni Mitchell homage The Fiddle and the Drum, Mel McCaig has spent the last 5 years singing with internationally acclaimed Elvis Presley Tribute Artists from the UK, Australia and the USA—an experience that she says compelled her to create this new work.

Performing with 5 leading Adelaide musicians and with musical direction by Carol Young (State Theatre Co. SA, State Opera SA, Belvoir St Theatre, Brink) Mel says Gifts from the King will deliver fresh and unexpected interpretations of Elvis’ most loved songs including tender ballads, big vocal harmonies, raw energy and honest storytelling.

"As a jazz educated singer I had reservations about entering the Elvis world!" Mel says.

"There can be a lot of judgement about Elvis Presley’s music and the image that has been created of him over many years. But I found myself completely falling in love with his songs. Each night on stage I would discover...

Art Gallery of South Australia

Exhibition Season: 17 November 2018 to 3 February 2019

The Vollard Suite is Pablo Picasso's most celebrated series of etchings. The suite takes its name from Modern art dealer and print publisher Ambroise Vollard, who gave Picasso his first Paris exhibition in 1901. Vollard commissioned Picasso to make the series of etchings in exchange for a selection of French Impressionist paintings from his private collection.

This National Gallery of Australia touring exhibition explores the inner musings of the most famous and influential artist of the twentieth century through 100 etchings produced over a 7-year period from 1930 to 1937.

The film Blood of a Poet (1930) by Picasso's friend and collaborator, Jean Cocteau, will be screened alongside the exhibition and for the aspiring ‘mini-Picasso’ Gallery 11 will be transformed into a free and accessible Drawing Room.

Passenger – Runaway Tour SOLD OUT
Date Tue 20th Nov 2018 to Wed 21st Nov 2018
Following the release of single ‘Hell Or High Water’ and the announce of his tenth studio album 'Runaway', Passenger has announced his 2018 Australia and New Zealand tour dates. Along with this announcement, Passenger (aka Mike Rosenberg) has released a music video for the album’s title track, ‘Runaway’. The album has been largely recorded in Australia and will be dropped on Friday August 31 via Black Crow Records.

The British singer-songwriter will play a show in Auckland, as well as all major cities in Australia to showcase his forthcoming album. 'Runaway' finds Passenger embracing the epic once again—the melodies are unforgettable, the choruses colossal. Even though it was recorded between the UK and Australia with co-producer Chris Vallejo (INXS, Empire Of The Sun, Josh Pyke), the 10-track album was imagined as unfolding against a backdrop of American landscapes. And so, rather than following usual video process in studios or track-by-track, he and video director Jarrad Seng spent three weeks making videos across the US to capture the visual accompaniments to the aural landscapes.

The video for ‘Runaway’ reflects this beautifully, seeing Rosenberg run through breathtaking landscapes in the US—from the...

Bombino Australian Tour - Adelaide
Date Thu 22nd Nov 2018
Following the release of his fourth consecutive #1 album ‘Deran’ earlier this year, Tuareg guitarist and singer Omara ‘Bombino’ Moctar who is currently on a massive European tour has announced Australia as his next tour destination. Travelling through QLD, NSW, TAS, SA & VIC across seven dates, Bombino will bring his captivating band to Oz performing a set list of classic favourites alongside the all new Deran.

Born in the shade of an acacia tree about eighty miles north west of the ancient town of Agadez, Bombino has a deep connection to his home. While in recent years the rest of the world has largely written off Tuareg as a hot and savage Sahara wasteland, a bolt hole for religious extremists and terrorists with little to offer apart from the oil, gold and phosphates that lie beneath its soil, Bombino would like us to take a closer look and think again. His feelings are beautifully summed up in the song “Tehigren” (‘Trees’) from Deran, ‘Do not forget the green trees / In our valleys in the Sahara / In the shade of which, / Rest the beautiful girls / Radiant and lovable’. “We’re a people who wish for peace,”

Rüfüs Du Sol – Solace Australian Tour
Date Wed 20th Feb 2019
After dropping their anticipated third LP 'Solace', one of the world’s pre-eminent electronic acts Rüfüs Du Sol have announced what will be their biggest Aussie tour yet—the Solace Australian tour.

'Solace' follows Rüfüs Du Sol’s previous two platinum-certified albums 'Atlas' and 'Bloom', and is an album that is as sonically rich as it is emotionally intelligent. The Australian three-piece—comprised of members Tyrone Lindqvist, Jon George and James Hunt—have explored new territory on 'Solace'; born out of a particularly poignant period for the band, it tackles heavier themes such as the pain of loss and the persistence of memory. This is unequivocally the group’s most sophisticated work to date.

Date Tue 26th Feb 2019 to Sun 3rd Mar 2019
Wanted: Petty Bitches.

Why be a Basic Bitch when you can be a Petty Bitch?

Are you willing to go that extra mile just for the most minute detail? To be petty is not to be childish, it's to be specific, very specific, REALLY SPECIFIC because every detail counts. It's not our fault we have standards.

If you've ever lived in a share house, caught a plane or worked in an office with passive aggressive Post-It notes then you've walked the walk and now it's time to talk the talk.

Internationally acclaimed, award winning comedy cabaret bitches, Boo Dwyer and Tash York have combined forces to address the very specific, small and somewhat meaningless issues that make us petty, but better than the rest.

Are you petty? Then come join us... bitches.

The Magic Flute
Date Fri 1st Mar 2019 to Sun 3rd Mar 2019
Having played to half a million people in 22 cities around the world, The Magic Flute finally comes to Australia for the opening weekend of the 2019 Adelaide Festival.

“Artistic Masterworks” and “Crowd Pleasers” are categories that rarely intersect. Arguably, only once: in The Magic Flute. In 1791, long before anyone knew what demographics were, it crossed them all to become an instant hit and has remained so ever since.

This staging by Barrie Kosky and Suzanne Andrade (from 1927, the company that wowed Festival audiences with Golem in 2016) is marvellous in the true sense of the word. It manages to keep Mozart’s unique coin spinning so that we never fail to appreciate either of its dazzling sides: On a musical level it is sublime but its operatically game-changing blend of live action and animation make it endlessly delightful to audiences of all ages and experience.

Friends of the Adelaide Festival receive 15% discount and can already access priority booking. Tickets will be released to the general public at 9am 22 August 2018.
Adelaide Festival 2019
Date Fri 1st Mar 2019 to Sun 17th Mar 2019
The Adelaide Festival is an iconic Australian arts festival that runs for two weeks in March. It is internationally recognised as Australia's pre-eminent arts festival. Along with festivals in Edinburgh and Avignon, the Adelaide Festival is often cited as one of the top three festivals in the world, providing audiences with a survey of the most original and acclaimed artists and performing arts organisations working in the world today. The program traverses a cross-section of music, theatre, dance, literature and visual art from artists of diverse backgrounds and cultures.

"Every major capital city in Australia has its own arts festival, but ask those who work in the industry and most will tell you the same thing: Adelaide Festival is the big one.
It has a history of attracting the most significant artists in the world. It’s been running since 1960, but its scope is so big it only became an annual event in 2012. Basically, it’s where to go if you want to binge on cutting-edge, high-profile, large-scale international art."

Her one-night-only recital with Pianist Craig Terry takes a fresh look at the timeless beauty of Schumann’s Frauenliebe und Leben. Interspersed with a staggering variety of songs (Grieg, Tchaikovsky, Berlioz, Granados, Debussy, Faure, Duparc, Poulenc) its explorations of love, sex, kids and grief become genuinely universal.

Arlo Guthrie: Alice's Restaurant Back By Popular Demand- Adelaide
Date Wed 24th Apr 2019
In 1965, a teenaged Guthrie performed a “friendly gesture” that proved to be fateful. Arrested for littering, Arlo was deemed “not moral enough to join the army” and recounted these events on the album ‘Alice’s Restaurant’ in 1967. The “Alice’s Restaurant Massacree”, an 18 minute and 20 second partially sung comic monologue opposing the war and the backward reasoning of authority has become a quintessential anti-establishment anthem.

Arlo Guthrie has become an iconic figure in folk music with a distinguished and varied career spanning almost sixty years. Classically styled folk songs intermingled with clever storytelling and a keen sense of humor remain his trademark, in addition to his broad musical accomplishments. Guthrie is a road warrior, touring almost constantly, alone or with friends and family.

Since the first time he performed in public in 1961 at the age of 13, and after almost sixty years of shows, Arlo Guthrie, now in his 70s, has become an American folk elder—a keeper of the flame.

Post Malone Australian Tour
Date Sun 28th Apr 2019
History-making, multi-platinum megastar Post Malone is gearing up to give Australian audiences the time of their lives when they get the chance to catch him live on stage in April and May next year. Last performing down under in January as part of FOMO Festival 2018, he will return in 2019 with a mammoth 10-date arena spectacle off the back of his latest album 'Beerbongs & Bentleys'.

Released last April, 'Beerbongs & Bentleys' swiftly became one of the year’s most successful albums. The project—which features the hits 'Rockstar' and 'Psycho'—clocked up more than 78.7 million streams on its release day, surpassing the previous record held by Drake who set the bar when 'More Life' tipped 61.3 million hits.

Post Malone stirs hip-hop, R&B, and alternative into his own sonic "sauce" that’s both intoxicating and invigorating. "I describe what I do as sauce," he says. "You can turn up to it. You can chill to it. You can do anything to it. It makes you feel some type of way, or it makes you want to party. It just comes naturally."

The Australian Ballet presents The Nutcracker
Date Tue 8th Oct 2019 to Sat 12th Oct 2019
There’s nothing like a traditional Nutcracker to get you in the mood for the festive season. And there’s no traditional Nutcracker as magical as Peter Wright’s.

The artistic director of Birmingham Royal Ballet has created a gold-standard production of this beloved party piece, remaining faithful to the feel of the 19th-century original. Tchaikovsky’s last great score for ballet, with its lively motifs and bewitching melodies, draws us into the story of Clara, a young ballet student celebrating with her family on Christmas Eve. When the clock strikes twelve, we enter the realm of dream … and Clara is whisked to the Land of Sweets in the arms of her Nutcracker Prince.

Veteran designer John F Macfarlane exquisitely evokes the world of this picture-perfect ballet: whirling snowflakes, crackling fires, band-box soldiers, a Christmas tree that grows until it brushes the ceiling and a Sugar Plum Fairy in luscious candy-floss pink.

With the holidays around the corner, there’s no better way than The Nutcracker to rediscover the childlike joys of the season, or to create your own family tradition.

National Pharmacies Christmas Pageant
Date Sat 9th Nov 2019
The National Pharmacies Christmas Pageant is the largest single-day parade in the southern hemisphere, the second biggest in the world (behind the famous Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City), and the largest Christmas Parade in the world.

In 1896, Mr Edward Waterfield Hayward - the then owner of the John Martin & Company Limited, established the 'Magic Cave'. It was a Christmas fantasy world, to support children's cultural heritage and provide a joyful community Christmas experience.

The first Christmas Pageant was held during the Great Depression in 1933, some thirty-seven years after the creation of the Magic Cave.

The Christmas Pageant escorted Father Christmas to the Magic Cave.

Created by Sir Edward Hayward (Mr Bill), who was the grandson of Mr E. W. Hayward; the Pageant featured approximately eight floats, four bands and ran for around 40 minutes. 200,000 spectators came to watch the Pageant.

The Pageant encouraged the development of artists, with a team of artists, carpenters, wardrobe designers and mechanics all involved in the Pageant.

The Pageant tradition has continued since then, sharing the magic of Christmas with different generations of children.
