Macdeth - Ararat
Date Wed 21st Nov 2018
Company 13’s Macdeth is a Shakespearian treat performed in an immediate and accessible style. A funny, cautionary and fake-bloody tale that combines Shakespeare’s rich language with a healthy dose of invention and idiocy.

Macdeth is the perfect show for audiences who love the classics with a twist. Macdeth pulls no punches in making the Scottish play a different sort of tragedy. It includes all the previously omitted scenes – the witches brewing up a hallucinogenic cat soup, King Duncan revealing his undying passion for chocolate cake, the gothic love story of Macbeth and Lady Macbeth.

Created for children aged nine and above and their families, the show is perfect for kids who have never seen Shakespeare or think the classics are a ticket to the land of sleep.

The side-splitting tale combines Shakespeare’s rich language with a healthy dose of invention and idiocy. It pulls no punches, leaving in all the murder and foul play, all the injustice and cruelty, all the horror of one man’s ambition gone horribly wrong, but in a fun way. This is Shakespeare unplugged and re-wired, performed with stupidity and skill.

Interference Pattern: Rebecca Najdowski and Vivian Cooper Smith
Date Sat 15th Dec 2018 to Sun 24th Feb 2019
What does it mean to make landscape photographs today?

Interference Pattern challenges the conventions of landscape photography by bringing together the work of Rebecca Najdowski and Vivian Cooper Smith to form new temporal images - landscapes in flux.

Their artwork is formed through studio and darkroom interventions with landscape imagery derived from the Wimmera region. Working from photographic film, Rebecca manipulates their structure - cutting, scratching, burning, tearing, stapling, folding - to give a sense of additive-erasure and draw attention to how photographs frame nature.

Vivian primarily uses re-photography, adding further disruption to this process through visual obstructions to the lens such as crystals and mirrors as well as introducing movement of the prints during long exposure. The results are landscape images largely untethered from any identifiable location but resonant with the site and performance of making, embracing the idea that photographic materials, camera, photographer and subject-matter are active and equal participants in the process.

The photography of Australia’s First Nations people has become a significant component of the collection of Australian photographic practice. This year they welcome work by James Tylor, Kent Wilson and Destiny Deacon.

Deacon uses our obsession with football and humour to investigate our representation of Indigenous people, while Kent and Tylor each in their own way illustrate that culture is ongoing, and connected to the natural world be it urban or the bush.

Through the work of Honey Long and Prue Stent we focus on their work 'Salt Lake' made on Dimboola’s Pink Lake and purchased through the Nance Kroker Bequest.
