A collection of artefacts and photographs by John Quinn
Date Fri 1st Feb 2019 to Mon 4th Mar 2019
“Liklik Samting Long Taim Bifor ” (Pidgin English for ‘Small Things from Times Past’)

John Quinn spent the years 1959-1975 in Papua New Guinea as a Patrol Officer-universally known to all in that country as a “Kiap". A Kiap’s main job was to provide ‘peace, order and good government’ to the local tribes people –some of whom had never seen a white man—in the various Districts which comprised that now independent country.

During his time in what were the Sepik, Gulf and Milne Bay Districts, John travelled widely on patrol, often for weeks at a time, through mountainous, jungle-covered terrain with only native footpads (no roads of course) to travel on, whilst keeping a sharp lookout for crocodiles when wading through rivers.

In Milne Bay, patrols visiting the various isolated villages and islands were carried out on a tiny work-boat– John is not a good sailor.

John purchased all of the articles on display from their owners and makers and has also provided some fascinating photos which help to illustrate those past times. With children not interested in retaining them, he hopes that they may end up in the homes of collectors who appreciate true and authentic works of art.

From the static papercut to the moving image, Tianli seeks to overcome the boundaries of traditional two-dimensional, non-durable papercuts to a three dimensional, paperless and durable work. Her animation not only preserves lost craftsmanship but also sustains and expands the richness of this ancient culture to the present time.

Tianli has spent over 30 years in Australia inventing new stories to convey philosophical ideas combining old and new, the organic and technology, the Eastern and Western. She employs a range of materials and working methods to reveal the interplay between light and shadow, yin and yang in Taoist terms.

Malthouse Theatre’s Merlyn stage is made over into a sticky-carpet band venue - a transformation that will see some lucky audience members seated up-close and personal with Barbara and the band.

50 / 50
Date Fri 15th Feb 2019 to Sun 24th Feb 2019
One of Australia’s fasting rising comedy stars, Melbournian Michael Shafar, returns to the Adelaide Fringe Festival with a brand new show, 50/50, at Piglet @ Gluttony 15-24 February 2019.

Building from the success of his sold out shows Jewish-ish and Kosher Bacon, 50/50 is a raw, deeply personal and hilarious account of Michael’s physical and mental health journey. “In 2017,

I was diagnosed with cancer and it gave me a lot of material. It’s the most transparent and honest I’ve ever been on stage, and it’s also the most I’ve had audiences laugh. I've always believed that any subject can be funny, and finding what's funny about an extremely painful experience makes it much easier to handle,” said Michael. “Humour has kept me sane throughout the journey and helped me find some meaning in it all. It’s been cathartic sharing that on stage,” he added.
After You've Gone
Date Fri 15th Feb 2019 to Sat 2nd Mar 2019

Australian String Quartet presents Haydn Winkelman Sibelius
Date Wed 20th Feb 2019
Haydn String Quartet op 33 no 3 The Bird
Helena Winkelman Papa Haydn’s Parrot
Sibelius String Quartet op 56 Voces Intimae

Whimsical spirit encounters aesthetic introspection in the first of their 2019 concerts. Haydn’s admiration for the musicality of birds creates curious charm, contrasting the soulful reflections of Finland’s great Romantic artist, Jean Sibelius.

Inspired by the new spirit of elegance and clarity defined with the term ‘galant,’ Haydn’s work is directed entirely towards the listener’s delight, allowing musical intuition to transcend the composer’s technique.

Then Swiss violinist and composer Helena Winkelman pays her own wildly idiosyncratic tribute to Haydn and the birds that inspired him.

In contrast, Sibelius delves deep into his emotional life, surveying his feelings and fears in a tremendous assertion of personal strength. His quartet draws its force from a profound understanding for the intimacies of feeling which only a string quartet can truly explore.

The Australian String Quartet performs with guest cellist Timo-Veikko Valve while Sharon Grigoryan takes parental leave.

Bangarra Dance Theatre will bring its landmark production Bennelong to Geelong Performing Arts Centre from February 21-23 as part of the 2019 Deakin University Theatre Season.

Following the extraordinary success of Bennelong’s premiere season in 2017 and a sold-out season at Adelaide Festival in 2018, the production is regarded by many as the strongest and most compelling work to have emerged from Bangarra in its 30-year history.

Directed by Bangarra’s Artistic Director Stephen Page, Bennelong tells the remarkable story of Woollarawarre Bennelong, a senior man of the Eora nation, from the Port Jackson area in Sydney. Bennelong was one of the first Aboriginal men to be taken from his people and, against his initial will, introduced to European ways. He was a traditional man who became an intermediary between his clan and the colonists, and one of the first Aboriginal people to have their life story recorded and documented through the early diaries of the British military, even travelling to London as a guest of Governor Arthur Phillip who ordered his initial capture.

Arbus & West
Date Fri 22nd Feb 2019 to Sat 30th Mar 2019
Hollywood bombshell Mae West built her career on lookin' good - walkin' the walk and talkin' the talk - while legendary photographer Diane Arbus was famous for finding beauty in the everyday. When Diane turns up at Mae's glistening LA apartment in 1964 to take her portrait, tensions quickly flare. Mae's vision of herself is very different to the one Diane wants to catch on film. But whose version wins out when a master of illusion meets a master of truth?

Drawing on actual events, award-winning Australian playwright Stephen Sewell imagines what might have transpired between these to extraordinary women, creating a powerful portrait of beauty, sexuality, wildness and longing.

Melita Jurisic (The House of the Bernarda Alba) takes on the role of the irrepressible Mae West, with Diana Glenn (The Slap) as Diane Arbus in this World Premiere production, directed by MTC's 2018 Helpmann Award-winning Associate Director Sarah Goodes (The Children).

Australian String Quartet presents Haydn Winkelman Sibelius
Date Sun 24th Feb 2019
Haydn String Quartet op 33 no 3 The Bird
Helena Winkelman Papa Haydn’s Parrot
Sibelius String Quartet op 56 Voces Intimae

Whimsical spirit encounters aesthetic introspection in the first of our 2019 concerts. Haydn’s admiration for the musicality of birds creates curious charm, contrasting the soulful reflections of Finland’s great Romantic artist, Jean Sibelius.

Inspired by the new spirit of elegance and clarity defined with the term ‘galant,’Haydn’s work is directed entirely towards the listener’s delight, allowing musical intuition to transcend the composer’s technique.

Then Swiss violinist and composer Helena Winkelman pays her own wildly idiosyncratic tribute to Haydn and the birds that inspired him.

In contrast, Sibelius delves deep into his emotional life, surveying his feelings and fears in a tremendous assertion of personal strength. His quartet draws its force from a profound understanding for the intimacies of feeling which only a string quartet can truly explore.

The ASQ performs with guest cellist Timo-Veikko Valve while Sharon Grigoryan takes parental leave.

For a “movement,” such as it was, so small, so brief and with such youthful adherents, each as different from each other as it was almost possible to be, the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood (PRB) has enjoyed a quite remarkably disproportionate critical fate through the past exactly 170 years. It is as if, among succeeding generations, there has been some pressing need for a bellwether PRB, one that has at different times sat as comfortably in the Royal Academy and the Athenaeum as it later sauntered down Carnaby Street.

A View from the Bridge
Date Sat 9th Mar 2019 to Thu 18th Apr 2019
Brooklyn dockworker Eddie Carbone and his wife Beatrice agree to take in two Sicilian relatives - illegal immigrants trying to find work. Hardworking Marco is sending money home to his wife and sick children. Rodolpho is chasing the American dream, but finds being different makes him an outsider. When Rodolpho falls for Eddie's niece Catherine, the protective uncle must confront his own feelings and his jealous mistrust threatens to expose an unspeakable secret.

Arthur Miller's tragic masterpiece A View from the Birdge confronts the American dream in a stripped back, muscular drama that simmers with tension and explodes with passion. We might be in 1950s Brooklyn, but the themes of family, loyalty, immigration and justice are as relevant for contemporary Australia as ever before.

Since it first premiered in 1955, A View from the Bridge has electrified audiences around the world. In the hands of award-winning director Iain Sinclair (The Beast), whose 2017 Sydney staging for Red Line Productions created a chorus of critical acclaim, this brand new production promises to be riveting and emotionally-charged night at the theatre, featuring Daniela Farinacci (Lantana).

Performing daily except Sundays.
Australian Booty
Date Sat 9th Mar 2019
When Candy Bowers was growing up there weren’t a lot of people who looked like her on the telly and now she’s all over it! Candy wants to remix attitudes and create a future where everybody can shine and tell their own unique story.

From the sisters behind Hot Brown Honey (2017 Best Cabaret Helpmann Award/Green Room Association Award/2016 Edinburgh Festival Fringe First and Total Theatre UK Award) comes a more intimate, yet fiercely powerful show about self-love. Australian Booty is an entertaining mix of comedy, sass, social-commentary and of course, booty shaking!

In a sumptuous hour of jokes, stories, music and spoken word this radical babe weighs in on the Australian identity, interracial dating, Aussie Television and the beauty myth. Candy B is political, poetic and just a little bit naughty in this riotous one-woman romp about her rump.

Set to a killer soundtrack created by the notorious Busty Beatz, Australian Booty will slam, shake and tickle you all the way to the dance floor. If you love hip-hop, but hate misogyny, love powerful women but can’t understand why they doubt themselves (if you are one of those women), or you simply love being entertained…this show is for you!

Alliance Française French Film Festival - Amanda
Date Sat 9th Mar 2019
Presented from the point-of-view of David (Vincent Lacoste, In Bed with Victoria; Saint Amour, Alliance Française French Film Festival 2017) - symbiotically embodying French youth and earnest hope in the one character - Amanda unfurls as a family drama, although one that gets shaken to its core by a sudden violent act.

Described by Variety as having an at once beautiful and wonky (face), shaped by mischief and worry, like a (Jean-Paul) Belmondo reflected in the surface of a choppy lake, David is a carefree 20-something in the throes of a new romance with Lena (Stacy Martin, Redoubtable, Alliance Française French Film Festival 2018). He lives a carefree life until an incident abruptly forces him to assume the guardianship of his seven-year-old niece, Amanda (a revelatory turn by newcomer Isaure Multrier).

Collective mourning and its subsequent road to recovery, are given an all-too human face in Amanda, beautifully crafted through Lacoste’s performance. Amid the seriousness, this film is an exquisite valentine to the beauty and eccentricities of Paris, and will not fail to send hearts aflutter for those Francophiles who have such a love for this city and everything it offers.

Ayres and Graces: Brandenburg Ensemble in Mudgee
Date Thu 14th Mar 2019
Join members of the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra for an evocative musical journey through the streets and homes of eighteenth-century England and the palace of the ‘Sun King’ Louis XIV of France.

Musicians
Melissa Farrow Baroque flute/recorder
Rafael Font Baroque violin
Marianne Yeomans Baroque viola
Laura Moore Viola da gamba
Kirsten Barry Baroque oboe
Tommie Andersson Baroque guitar/theorbo

Repertoire
Works by Handel, Purcell, Lully, Playford and more.

Eighteenth-century London was a bustling entrepreneurial centre with a cosmopolitan concert life and a growing market for domestic music-making in wealthy households.

This musical richness of the city attracted many foreign musicians including George Frideric Handel. The musical items from Paris and Versailles performed in this program are by contrast uniformly in the style of Jean-Baptiste Lully, the fashionable director of music at the Court of the ‘Sun King’ Louis XIV of France.

The concert features heavenly trio sonatas, gorgeous pastoral folk tunes and intimate chamber music alongside stately works of grander scale.
An Evening With Alan McGee
Date Thu 14th Mar 2019
Join the legendary Creation Records boss, Alan McGee, for an exclusive Q and A, DJ Set and screening of ‘Upside Down’: The Creation Records Story.

McGee’s role in shaping British musical culture over the past thirty years is hard to overstate. As the founder of Creation Records he brought you the bands that defined an era, including a now-legendary 1993 meeting in Glasgow with an as-then-undiscovered Oasis, who he offered a deal to on the night. The rest, as they say, is history and here’s your chance to hear it from the man himself.

A charismatic Glaswegian who partied just as hard as any of the acts on his notoriously hedonistic label, he became an infamous character in the world of music. After leaving school at sixteen, he went on to set up the Living Room club in London (which showcased many emerging indie bands), managing the Jesus and Mary Chain and co-founding Creation Records when he was only twenty-three. His label brought acts like My Bloody Valentine, House of Love, Ride and, of course, Primal Scream and Oasis.

Beds of seagrass in the ocean form the favourite hiding places for sea dragons. Caroline collects clumps of it which get washed up on the beach after a storm; it is strappy, strong and ideal for random weave baskets. It’s also the perfect material to use to make sea dragons.

The coastal shore birds and the vulnerable hooded plover, whose chicks are cared for by teams of volunteers, are a pleasure to create, using basketry techniques with fabrics and wire. The fibre art practices of indigenous Australians are also a source of interest for Caroline. She has learnt weaving and bush toy wrapping techniques from a local elder. Caroline will demonstrate basketry and animal wrapping alongside a display of her work. You are welcome to join in some making with her.

Animal Farm
Date Thu 21st Mar 2019 to Sat 30th Mar 2019
A blistering new one-man version of George Orwell's political classic.
Presented by State Theatre Company
By George Orwell

Revolution is coming to Manor Farm.

Under the guidance of some rebellious pigs, a group of farm animals unite to drive out their cruel human oppressors and build utopia. But the swine are not as united as they appear and their division gives rise to a terrifying new system of power and repression.

Written in the 1940s as a response to the rise of authoritarian governments around the world, Animal Farm is a searing and timeless examination of extremist rule.

In his final production as Artistic Director, Geordie Brookman and the mercurial Renato Musolino join forces to create a scintillating take on one of the greatest stories of English literature. A sublime and unadorned piece of theatrical storytelling Animal Farm will see Musolino inhabit upwards of 20 characters, from the revolutionary pigs to the stoic draft horse and the tyrannical Mr Jones.

Animal Farm plays a strictly limited season. Seize your chance to be part of an exceptional changing of the guard at State Theatre Company.

Presented as part of the 2019 Canberra Comedy Festival.

Hello, I’m Becky, and I’m a 29 year old woman which means I’m passionate about two things: getting every surface of the bathroom incredibly wet and blaming my mood and behaviour on the moon. In the past year I filmed a bunch of stuff for Comedy Central, did the Melbourne International Comedy Festival gala, filmed a pilot for the ABC, performed my solo show at the Sydney Opera House as part of the JFL comedy festival as well as some other stuff. I also got banned from twitter for making a joke about chopping the Prime Minister’s head off, which is ridiculous because honestly, I don’t even have the time! I have a friggin’ show to perform! Anyway, um, support me?!

Avenue Q
Date Thu 21st Mar 2019 to Sun 24th Mar 2019
Avenue Q tells the timeless story of a recent college graduate trying to find his way in the world. Set in New York City all the way out on Avenue Q (he could not afford anything better), we are introduced to fresh-faced Princeton as he struggles to find his purpose: meeting friends, finding love, losing love, and finding it again, along with way.

Inspired by the beloved children's show Sesame Street, Avenue Q creates a puppet-filled world that is a little more reflective of the difficult, R-rated realities that we face when he learn that real life is not as simple as we dreamed it might be - but perhaps, suggests Avenue Q, life is all the more colourful and worthwhile for it. Avenue Q is part felt and packed with heart, winning three Tony Awards in 2004 - Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book. It has been said, you would be a muppet to miss it.

Please Note: Despite featuring puppets, Avenue Q is rated MA15+. It is not suitable for young children; but suitable for teenagers if parents are okay with them seeing full puppet nudity, hearing naughty words and witnessing quite a furry sex scene.

Barry Douglas performs Brahms
Date Wed 27th Mar 2019 to Sat 30th Mar 2019
Called to action by a soaring horn melody, the piano is hero in Brahms’s noble second piano concerto. This concerto is virtually a symphony with piano.

Composer Johannes Brahms had a gift for creating moments of tranquil intimacy within his most expansive works, and Irish pianist Barry Douglas has been exploring the complete solo piano music of Brahms in a series of acclaimed benchmark recordings: ‘this is indeed Brahms playing of the utmost integrity and authority’ (International Record Review).

The remarkable unbroken arc of Sibelius’s Seventh Symphony accelerates across an enigmatic landscape of emotion. Coiled tight within it is all the drama and variety of much bigger works – serene, violent and passionate. It is Sibelius’ final word: a ‘profession of faith’.

Aeolian Caprices by Australian composer Richard Mills is an orchestral firework of glittering colour.

A Little Lunch Music: Taryn Fiebig

Longing to spend your lunch hour device-free and served with a slice of serenity?

Drop in for City Recital Hall’s long running series of lunchtime concerts, A Little Lunch Music. Each concert is an hour of musical escapism performed by some of Australia’s best artists.

Helpmann Award-winning soprano Taryn Fiebig is one of Australia’s most popular and versatile artists. For this concert she will be accompanied by pianist Scott Davie in a program of English-language songs that bring added intimacy to this City Recital Hall performance. She begins with ‘Nine Lives’, a collection of songs by Australian composer, Roger Smalley, featuring poetry selected over many years about one of his great loves: cats. A brace of songs by England’s most renowned 20th century composers, Benjamin Britten, will include his famous ‘The Salley Gardens’. The recital ends with a cycle by America’s leading song writer, Samuel Barber, the poetry of ‘Hermit Songs’ reaching back as far as the 9th century, and recounting the joys and sorrows of solitude.

Feel free to bring your lunch into the auditorium. Their Lobby Bar is stocked with a range of light meal options or you can bring your own.
Alliance Française French Film Festival – Dany
Date Thu 28th Mar 2019
One of French cinema’s most recognisable on-screen talents, François Damiens (The Bélier Family, Alliance Française French Film Festival 2015; Just to Be Sure, Alliance Française French Film Festival 2017), has gone down an unconventional path with his directorial debut Dany, shot entirely using hidden cameras.

While serving a long-term jail sentence, habitual criminal Dany (Damiens) learns that his teenage son, Sullivan (Matteo Salamone), has sought a legal emancipation order from the courts. Determined to atone for being an absent father, Dany stages a prison escape, entwining Sullivan and his ‘godfather’, Parrain (Christian Brahy), in a series of clumsy escapades. The trio desperately try to evade the police so Dany can reconcile with Sullivan.

Unapologetically combining the kind of provocation synonymous with MTV’s Jackass franchise with cringe-worthy moments on par with Larry David’s Curb Your Enthusiasm television show, Dany is a bold and devilish cinematic experience. Despite its hidden-camera gimmickry, it delivers genuine cinematic pathos and makes a resounding statement about the shifting relationships between family members.

#Feminist: Roxane Gay and Christina Hoff Sommers
Date Fri 29th Mar 2019
What do you get when you bring together the self-proclaimed ‘bad feminist’ and ‘factual feminist’? Two intellectual heavyweights, from two very different ends of the spectrum, igniting conversation about one very severe topic.

This is not a feat, this is a sobering response to the differences within a social movement. Whilst feminism has made enormous strides towards the equality and empowerment of women, like any revolution, it is going through a rite of passage wherein strands of “feminism” and their identifiers are diverging more than they are converging.

This is 42 brings together a meeting of the minds between the ‘Bad Feminist’ Roxane Gay (professor, cultural critic, author/novelist, blogger) and the controversial ‘Factual Feminist’ Christina Hoff Sommers (professor, philosopher, author, vlogger) as they navigate the trials and tribulations of 21st century feminism in #Feminist, coming to Sydney in March 2019.

Together, Gay and Sommers will discuss intersectionality, gender roles and the division of domestic labour, the gender pay gap, violence against women, #MeToo, feminist representation in media and popular culture, political correctness.

Beethoven, Mozart and Sibelius
Date Fri 29th Mar 2019 to Mon 1st Apr 2019
Italian pianist Alessio Bax was First Prize-winner at both the Leeds and Hamamatsu international piano competitions. In this concert he plays Mozart’s Piano Concerto No.27 in C minor, the most symphonic of concertos, for his Melbourne Symphony Orchestra debut.

Composed around the same time as Mozart’s Don Giovanni it shares much of the opera’s unrelenting tension and tragedy. So defiant and intense is the music, it’s as though Mozart has burst through the boundaries of his conventional times.

Sibelius’s First Symphony was written around the same time as his patriotic Finlandia: a time his native Finland was struggling for independence. Rich and romantic, the First Symphony is subtly flavoured with the Finnish folk-inspired melodies that would become quintessential Sibelius.

Full of the same drama and intensity as his Fifth Symphony, Beethoven’s Egmont Overture makes for an arresting opening to this dynamic program.

Alexander Calder: Radical Inventor
Date Fri 5th Apr 2019 to Sun 4th Aug 2019
Alexander Calder: Radical Inventor presents approximately one hundred sculptural and pictorial compositions made by renowned American artist Alexander Calder (1898 - 1976), drawn from private and museum collections in North America, including a substantial number of works lent by the Calder Foundation, New York.

Calder is widely regarded as the artist who made sculpture move, forging a practice in dialogue with the world in motion and the motion in things. His radical and pioneering methods of making art – understood both technically and conceptually – changed the course of modern art.

Alexander Calder: Radical Inventor introduces audiences to the full breadth of Calder’s influential career as an inventor of new artistic forms. The exhibition provides a rich overview of Calder’s extensive oeuvre, including his explorative two-dimensional studies of line and space, his three-dimensional wire portraits and circus figures, as well as his most acclaimed artistic inventions, the mobile and the stabile.
Alliance Française French Film Festival – The Summer House
Date Fri 5th Apr 2019
Continuing her propensity for semi-autobiographical projects, actor, co-writer and director Valeria Bruni Tedeschi (A Castle in Italy, AF FFF2014) stars alongside her real-life mother, Marisa Borini, and her daughter, Oumy, in The Summer House. The luminous Valeria Golino (The Very Private Life of Mr. Sim, AF FFF2016) takes on a role based on Bruni Tedeschi’s off-screen sister and former first lady of France, Carla Bruni, to turn this film into a genuine family affair.

Anna (Bruni Tedeschi) heads off to her family’s estate in the Riviera to spend some time working on her latest screenplay and time away from the frantic pace of Paris. However, this move means dealing with her largely dysfunctional family—including Pierre Arditi (Family Matters, AF FFF2014) as the patriarch—as well as a particularly brutal break-up and the omnipresent ghosts of her past.

A sun-drenched and alcohol-fuelled comedy-drama, The Summer House gives us a glimpse into the foibles of the French Riviera’s bourgeoisie, and what we can only guess is a humorous insight into one of Europe’s most high profile families. Consider it a jocular rollercoaster ride of revelations and recriminations over light lunches and alfresco dinners on the picturesque Côte d’Azur.

Alliance Française French Film Festival – Through the Fire
Date Sun 7th Apr 2019
César award-nominated filmmaker Frédéric Tellier (SK1) is partial to exploring the sacrifices professional services men and women make for the common good—a theme he takes to new levels of emotionality in Through the Fire.

Franck (Pierre Niney, A Perfect Man, AF FFF2017; The Odyssey, AF FFF2018) is a firefighter beyond reproach. His commitment to his job and motto “to save or perish” are reflected in the loving relationship he shares with his wife, Cécile (Anaïs Demoustier, Jealous and Tomorrow and Thereafter, AF FFF2018) and their children.

His greatest test comes when, in the line of duty, Franck gets horribly burned, his survival being nothing less than a miracle. As part of the long, arduous journey back to health, Franck must not only rebuild himself physically but also psychologically. And even a man as strong as Franck has his limitations.

Tellier takes a shot at our hearts with Through the Fire, essentially tackling the big existential questions and getting to the very core of what it means to be human. His film is a sensitive one that encompasses the full spectrum of emotion, promising to stay with the audience well after the viewing experience has ended.

Bell Shakespeare's The Miser
Date Thu 11th Apr 2019 to Sat 20th Apr 2019
Wealthy skinflint, Harpagon is so cheap he’d rather bury his money in the backyard and steal oats from his horse before seeing a dollar spent.

Welcome to the world of The Miser, where passion and penny-pinching go head to head in a ribald comedy of manners. John Bell stars as the stingy, avaricious and obnoxious Harpagon, a money-lender who makes Ebenezer Scrooge look generous. This is a man who loves nothing more than his beloved cash — not even his own children.

With his eye on the prize — an inappropriately young bride who already has her sights set on his son — Harpagon is prepared to sacrifice his children and his dignity to win it all.

First performed in 1668, The Miser is the well-known satire by French playwright Molière, known for other classics such as Tartuffe and The Misanthrope.

Bell Shakespeare’s Founder John Bell will be directed by Artistic Director Peter Evans in this deliciously mean comedic Molière adaptation, exploring the depth of human greed, lust and manipulation.

Alliance Française French Film Festival – Dumped
Date Wed 17th Apr 2019
The latest cinematic treat from director Eloïse Lang and the superlative Camille Cottin (Call My Agent, AF FFF2016, and Family Photo in this year’s Festival) follows the surprise 2015 box office smash, Harry Me, and brings on the laughs in seismic waves—a farce-laden, mother-daughter comedy romp for everyone called Dumped.
Siblings Rose (Camille Cottin) and Alice (Camille Chamoux, Gazelles, AF FFF2015) are two sides of the same coin—Rose is a musician, living out a wild, alcohol-fuelled existence, while Alice is the archetypal straight-laced, responsible homemaker who prides herself on having her life together. While the sisters don’t often see eye-to-eye, they do agree that their mother, Françoise (César and Lumiere award winner Miou-Miou, Welcome Aboard AF FFF2013), needs some urgent cheering up after being dumped by their father for a younger woman.
To celebrate Françoise 60th birthday, the sisters take her to the beautiful tropical island of La Réunion. It’s there that Rose has the idea of asking Thierry (Johan Heldenberg, The Zookeeper’s Wife) to flatter Françoise with his charm and attention. But what was intended as a small confidence boost causes their holiday plans to unravel as things really spiral out of control.

Arlo Guthrie - Alice's Restaurant
Date Mon 22nd 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.

Alice’s Restaurant achieved platinum status and was made into a movie in 1969 (in which Arlo played himself) by the esteemed Oscar-nominated director Arthur Penn. 1969 also brought Arlo to the rock festival of the ages – Woodstock, showcasing his chart-topping Coming Into Los Angeles, which was included on the multi-platinum Woodstock soundtrack and movie.

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.

The song’s impact was immediate. It went on to receive a Human Rights Achievement Award; the first time such an honour had been bestowed upon a songwriter and was also added to the National Film and Sound Archive’s Sounds of Australia collection.

Archie’s career has spanned three decades. His work has been recognised locally and internationally.

Animal Farm
Date Tue 7th May 2019 to Sat 11th May 2019
A blistering new version of George Orwell’s political classic. All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others.

Revolution is coming to Manor Farm. Under the guidance of some rebellious pigs, a group of farm animals unite to drive out their cruel human oppressors and build utopia. But the swine are not as united as they appear, and their division gives rise to a terrifying new system of power and repression.

Written in the 1940s as a response to the rise of authoritarian governments around the world, Animal Farm is a searing examination of extremist rule. It is a cautionary tale as relevant and terrifying in 2019, as it was then.

In his final production for STCSA as Artistic Director, Geordie Brookman and the exceptional Dale March join forces to create a scintillating take on one of the greatest stories of English literature. A sublime and unadorned piece of theatrical storytelling, Animal Farm will see March inhabit upwards of 20 characters, from the revolutionary pigs to the stoic draft horse and the tyrannical Mr Jones.

Arisa Kwabe - The accumulation of our little narratives
Date Tue 7th May 2019 to Sun 26th May 2019
Artist in Residence Arisa Kwabe presents ‘The accumulation of our little narratives’.

Everyone has precious memories, but they will be lost over time. However, even if memory is lost from the body (the body being a container for the spirit), the being called “I” (which is made from past memories), appears in this world. The whole world consists of the accumulation of the small stories of “I” and this forms a large historical account.

The City of Whitehorse has a Sister City Relationship with Matsudo, a Japanese city on the outskirts of Tokyo. The relationship was developed by the former City of Box Hill in 1971 and was continued by the City of Whitehorse in 1994, when local government in Victoria amalgamated.

The two cities participate in an active exchange program for young people, which strengthens cultural understanding and promotes friendly relations. The relationship also promotes economic development opportunities between the two countries. This exhibition is a celebration of this enduring Sister City Relationship.

Based on the novel American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis, which also inspired the 2000 film starring Christian Bale, this bold new musical will have its Australian Premiere at the Hayes Theatre Co from May 2019.

With impeccable taste and unquenchable desires, Patrick, your unreliable narrator, and his elite group of friends spend their days in designer labels in chic restaurants and exclusive clubs.

With a book by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Riverdale) and music and lyrics by Tony Award winner Duncan Sheik (Spring Awakening) and featuring classic 80s hits from Phil Collins, Tears for Fears, New Order and Huey Lewis and the News, American Psycho - The Musical is a pitch black comedy about what it means to be alive in the world you live in.

His first string quartet is the glorious flowering of his cultivated technique and searching artistry.

These masterworks are complemented by a new work from young Australian composer Kate Moore, also inspired by a fascination for the natural world.

By Ursula Yovich and Alana Valentine.

Ursula Yovich (Diving for Pearls) is a force of nature at her remarkable best.

Co-authored by prolific playwright Alana Valentine (Dead Man Brake, Letters to Lindy), this effervescent play with songs sold out its original season at Belvoir, and will charm the pants off Wollongong.

Australian String Quartet presents MOORE BEETHOVEN BRAHMS
Date Tue 11th Jun 2019
Kate Moore String Quartet no 3* (Premiere Season)
Beethoven String Quartet op 18 no 4
Brahms String Quartet op 51 no 1

A young man brimming with confidence and sure of a bright future: this is Beethoven at the time of creating his first string quartets. His opus 18 no 4 is quicksilver in its variety of moods and characters, thoroughly conveying both technical mastery and compelling artistic personality.

Seventy years later, Brahms displayed a devotion to chamber music that went against the spirit of his times. But like an artist who works in mezzotint rather than forging grand canvases, Brahms some of the most sublime and intimate creations that the world had ever heard. His first string quartet is the glorious flowering of his cultivated technique and searching artistry.

These masterworks are complemented by a new work from young Australian composer Kate Moore, also inspired by a fascination for the natural world.

No trip to Sydney is complete without a visit to its most famous building. And the best thing to do when you visit the Sydney Opera House is to come inside and see an opera performance.

Henry VIII has grown tired of his second wife, Anne Boleyn, and is seeing her lady-in-waiting, Jane Seymour, in secret.

He plots to remove his wife from the throne, and tries to trap her by inviting the man she once loved back to court.

In this brutal world, can Anne’s innocence outweigh the King’s determination to be rid of her?
Beethoven Symphony No.5
Date Wed 3rd Jul 2019 to Mon 8th Jul 2019
The extrovert virtuosity of violinist Vadim Gluzman and the sound he draws from his legendary Stradivarius violin is ‘a glory to hear’ (SMH), perfect for the angular lyricism and high energy of composer Prokofiev’s enticing Violin Concerto No.2. The concerto comes from the same era as Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet ballet music and has a similar playful and melodious spirit. Designed to dazzle, it shows off a virtuoso violinist’s abilities to thrilling effect.

The shock and awe of Beethoven’s Fifth continues to resonate to this day. The extraordinary Xian Zhang conducts this ultimate symbol of symphonic power with her unique ‘dynamism, agility and precision’.

Fate knocks three times at the beginning of Verdi’s ferocious overture to The Force of Destiny, one of the greatest moments in all opera.

Hear the Sydney Symphony Orchestra conducted by the first woman to hold a titled post with a BBC orchestra and current Music Director of the New Jersey Symphony, Xian Yang.
