Sylph

Event Date: 25/04/2018, 08:00 pm

SYLPH by Jodi Rose “Immortality has a price tag
SYLPH is about Marie Taglioni, known for her chaste, ethereal, sylph-like qualities on stage. But her private life was grounded in affairs with lovers from royalty to the arts, as well as struggles with power, disadvantage and manipulation.​ The play draws on the older Marie’s experiences and recollections. Jodi Rose (playwright), Gertraud Ingeborg (actor) and Colleen Cook (director and designer) are not so different in age from the mature Marie Taglioni. This team of three formidable women have worked together closely throughout the whole process of bringing this one-woman show to life.

Revolt. She Said. Revolt Again.

Event Date: 03/05/2018, 08:00 pm

“Each scene ...begins with deconstruction and proceeds into detonation”
In Revolt. She Said. Revolt Again. UK writer Alice Birch skewers the language and semiotics of both patriarchy and feminism in a play which is equal parts belly-laugh funny and gut-wrenchingly real.

She tears apart the structures that keep feminism and women trapped inside a patriarchal system, and presents a rallying cry for a new feminism; to work outside the system and re-redefine the way we think about womanhood.

Women take their rightful place, centre stage: becoming the aggressor in seductions, demanding what they want from work, trashing supermarkets and with them the fragile masculine ego.

Packed with intelligence, humour and wrenching social commentary, House of Sand bring its signature visceral performance style to a Revolt that is a punch in the face wrapped in a satin glove.
Based on conversations with more than 80 Australian women across a range of socio-economic, cultural, religious, sexuality and gender backgrounds, this new production will resonate deeply with local audiences.

Charles and Eliza Sanders’ award-winning House of Sand creates madcap, visceral performance work
with a signature expressionistic style in and across art forms including theatre, dance, cabaret and visual & performance art.
Directed by Charles and featuring Eliza, Revolt also features the talents of Violette Ayad, Anna Cheney, Enya Daley, Richard Hilliar and Moreblessing Maturure.

Tales Of The Silk Road - Melbourne

Event Date: 08/05/2018, 07:30 pm

Experience the majesty in a one night only performance at Melbourne Recital Hall
Distinguished Pipa (Chinese Lute) master Zhang Hong-Yan together with over 30 top-level musicians from the Plucked-String Orchestra of China Central Conservatory of Music will make their Australian debut in Tales of the Silk Road. Experience the majesty in a one night only performance at Melbourne Recital Hall on Tuesday 8 May.

Combining folk music along the Silk Road and contemporary dance, the concert brings together the Pipa, Chinese traditional percussions and exquisite stage decoration, giving audiences an unforgettable multi-dimensional artistic experience. The concert explores wide-spread Chinese masterpieces with strong ethnic features including Spring of Tian Mountain, Cockfight and Tales of the Silk Road.

During a Uygur tour in 2002, Zhang discovered that both the Pipa and Chinese traditional percussion originated from the Western Region (Uygur regions and part of central Asia), and was inspired to bring the instruments back together in concert.

Pipa, also known as the Chinese lute, is a four-stringed Chinese musical instrument, considered the king of plucked instruments. With a pear-shaped wooden body, Pipa has a number of frets ranging from 12 to 26, and dates back to the Han dynasty (around 2nd century AD). With a 2000-year history, Pipa is one of the most popular Chinese instruments, shaping ancient Chinese singing and dancing and a symbol of Chinese traditional culture.

Kiss Of The Gallery Guard

Event Date: 11/05/2018, 08:00 pm

Young Amber leaves the outback under a cloud. She makes good in Sydney at the Art Gallery of NSW, then better in London… and even better in New York.
How did she do it? And what happens if she returns to Australia?

(Girls Like That), Eli Saad (Beirut Adrenalin, Asylum, Future Seekers) and Chloe Schwank
(Julius Caesar, Cosi, Comedy of Errors), with pianist Philip Eames.

She Stoops To Conquer

Event Date: 11/05/2018, 07:30 pm

CLASSIC, BAWDY ROMP FOR NORTH SIDE SEASON
When Marlow mistakes Kate’s house for an inn and treats her father like an inn-keeper, things don’t go so well for him. With her brother causing mischief, her father insulted and her mother plotting a marriage that nobody wants, it’s no wonder Kate has to stoop to conquer!
She Stoops to Conquer belongs to that small group of classic English comedies which not only never go out of fashion, but never fail to delight. Directed by Peter Farmer (Away, The 39 Steps, Shadowlands, Charley’s Aunt), this production is a true delight: a sweet concoction of Goldsmith’s sly language and lovable characters. It’s also a rarity: a comedy that - like Shakespeare’s - has withstood the test of time!

Director Peter Farmer explains why he loves a rarely performed, 250-year-old comedy:

“Simple! She Stoops is full of charm – a quality too seldom seen in theatre today.
Most playwrights turn vanity, egotism and snobbery into bitter social satire but Oliver Goldsmith loves his characters – and so do we.
It’s far more enjoyable to laugh at human frailties without a stern, didactic finger wagged in our faces…
... this play’s infectious fun, happiness and joy echo through the ages.”

Farmer is confident Lane Cove’s “light touch” overcomes the challenge of 18th century language too:
“A charming and spirited performance requires the right balance – and we’ve found it!”

Times change but great characters don’t, he adds.
“They remain lively, real and recognisable: a girl discovering the thrill of independence;
a boy learning from experience that freedom requires courage and self-awareness.
Every complication is resolved and – through the magic of theatre – we share in their triumphs!”

She Stoops to Conquer stars Henry Taylor, Natasha Nogueira, Larissa Turton, Ross Scott, Alison Grace,
Simon Emmerson, Katie Regan, Ross Holohan, Esther Hannan-Moon, Antony Akle & Wills Burke.

It plays at St Aidan’s Performance Space, Longueville Friday to Sunday from 11-26 May.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Event Date: 18/05/2018, 08:00 pm

MAGIC, MUSIC, LAUGHTER & LOVE IN JOYFUL SHAKESPEARE A Midsummer Night’s Dream at The Guild Theatre
Deep in a woodland clearing, enter a mysterious fairyland and a time of myth & legend where anything is possible… and nothing is it what it seems!

It’s almost 40 years since The Guild presented a Shakespeare play… and director Susan Stapleton knows it’s well overdue.
Stapleton’s own dream of staging this magical Shakespearean classic goes back to her years of studying the Bard at University, including a course at Cambridge in England.

It’s the personal quality of Shakespeare’s work that fascinates Susan:

“He can be very cheeky and bawdy yet, as a poet, frames his ideas in such beautiful imagery that you can’t help but see into the human soul.
"The fact that this insight is over 400 years old – yet both timeless and universal - makes it all the more intriguing.
"I’m so very excited and can’t wait to share it with our audiences,” Susan adds.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream is outwardly about the events surrounding the marriage of Theseus, Duke of Athens to Hippolyta,
Queen of the Amazons. Into this ceremonial period come two other pairs of lovers - each young, silly… and ripe for adventure.
They stumble into a parallel world of mischievous fairies and wood sprites with a quarreling king and queen of their own.
Add a troupe of bumbling tradies (“rough mechanicals”) looking to court favour by presenting a play at the royal wedding… and you have all the ingredients for a thrilling, mystical, romantic and hysterical adventure - all in one!

The Dream is Shakespeare’s funniest and most accessible play and will delight both devotees of The Bard and audience members less familiar with his works.
The cast are a wonderful combination of young and more senior members of the Guild Theatre (from 18 to 82!) all brim-full of energy to capture the playful wit and fantasy of the play.

Step into the forest be swept up in a dreamy world of rousing medieval music, mysterious, atmospheric sets and elaborately costumed performers.

The Guild Theatre’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream from 18 May.
