February, as part of Midsumma Festival. Helmed by the Green Room Award winning team behind
“The Gospel According to Jesus Queen of Heaven”, this Australasian premiere will be the first

international production to feature a new performer in the lead role; Melbourne’s most exciting up-
and-coming trans artist Kikki Temple.

Funny, confronting, flirtatious and sometimes a bit messy, Burgerz combines confessional
storytelling, live cooking, and audience interaction to recreate a trans person of colour’s lived
experience. Poignantly unpredictable, Burgerz lifts the lid off gender and race politics by asking us to
reflect on our own complicity. To be unregulated is to be dangerous.
In broad daylight in April 2016 at Flinders Street Station, a burger was thrown at Kikki whilst someone
shouted a transphobic slur. Over one hundred people saw, and no one did anything. To understand
this act of violence, Kikki needs to make a burger – with the help of a stranger. Burgerz is the climax
of their obsession —exploring how trans bodies survive in public spaces and how they can reclaim an
act of violence.
“I remember feeling like this was a story I needed to tell. Like the words have been on my lips the whole
time but I just didn’t know how to get them out. When I read what Travis had written, I felt a sense of
relief knowing someone had articulated what I had been trying to say the whole time.” -Kikki Temple
Carving out a place as one of the UK’s prominent trans voices, Alabanza is an award-winning theatre
maker and trans activist who has opened arena shows for Jonathan van Ness and Alok Vaid-Menon.
Burgerz has played internationally in Sao Paulo, Southbank Centre, Bristol Old Vic, Smock Alley
Dublin, HAU Berlin, and Edinburgh Festival Fringe, where it won the Total Theatre award.

Celebrating Lunar New Year in the luckiest place in Melbourne, internationally-acclaimed cabaret provocateurs Finucane & Smith meld the ancient with the contemporary for House of the Heart – a cabaret of home, belonging, journey and heart.   From 2 – 12 February,  Chinese Museum’s Dragon Gallery will become a velvety lair filled with song, opera, storytelling and dance particularly spotlighting Chinese, Chinese diaspora and First Nations artists.

Inspired by nearly a decade’s rich and deep collaboration in China and Australian adventures, House of the Heart is an intercultural celebration of home, ancestors and how we get there – a cocktail of voices, stories and artforms across ages, those from far away and those who have always been here.

Surrounded by large scale processional dragons and beneath intricate Chinese lanterns; multi-awarded indie-pop composer and vocalist Sophie Koh; proud Ngarluma First Nations jazz blues legend Lois Olney, rising talent Chinese classical singer Zitao Deng, cellist Xiao Xiao and dancer Paul Cordeiro – whose rich Chinese/Thai/Portuguese heritage infuses a lifetime of dance – will take to the stage. The work also stars guitar virtuoso Dave Johnson, visual artist Emma Luk with awarded Musical Director Rachel Lewindon, and is hosted by head diva and art alchemist Moira Finucane.

A revolving cavalcade of Finucane & Smith’s dancers, storytellers and singers will grace the stage during the season including country legends The Muirs – the soulful duo of Yorta Yorta/Wiradjuri artist Glennys Briggs (whose father and Jimmy Little’s father travelled together in a vaudeville band) and guitarist/singer Ian Muir; Melbourne’s celebrated gender transcendent diva Mama Alto; 88 year old theatre maven Shirley Cattunar; and barkeep songbirds Lachlan Bartlett and Jens Radda.

The MILF and Mistress is a rare and compelling theatrical event that centres on the older lesbian experience. Hitting the stage at Theatre Works’ Explosives

Factory in January 2023, it angles a bright spotlight on how Saturday soccer, school runs, and flannelette pyjamas
all work to keep us in a comfortable domestic slumber… until a well-placed riding crop wakes us up.
The MILF and Mistress tells the tale of Ali Henderson. An intelligent, middle-aged woman who outwardly seems
to be living the lesbian dream. But three pets, two sons, one wife and a shiny quarter acre block in suburbia make
for one very frustrated MILF. She apparently “has it all”… but is it enough? Does happily ever after simply expire?
A new Australian work by multi-award winning playwright and actor Jane Montgomery Griffiths, The MILF and
Mistress will be realised on the stage by Theatre Works Executive Director, and first time theatre director, Dianne
Toulson. Performed by renowned actor and Green Room Award Winner Jennifer Vuletic, The MILF and Mistress
is an important comment on a group within the GLBTIQA+ community whose experiences are often sidelined and
dismissed.
“We all know about the invisibility of middle-age for women”, explains writer Jane Montgomery Griffith, “so
much of that, though, is tied up with heterosexuality and women no longer being deemed attractive. There’s very
little theatrical work out there exploring and validating middle-aged lesbians and their sexuality. Concurrently,
there’s also growing interest in debunking the taboo of women hiring sex workers, what with the success of Good
luck, Leo Grande, so I suppose this project is a bit within that zeitgeist.

This project is about combining diversity, honouring the queen of the pub and recycling. The cast and content draws directly on people of diverse ages, backgrounds, gender and sexual orientation whilst focussing on different identities. This is an exquisite series of photographic images based on a coronation made from recycled social disposables, surviving buildings, queens from the sidewalk, the importance of social places, diversity and powerful women.

Throughout this photographic series, Gerard and Marc have honoured the unsung heroes who are the resilient Queens and real people of St Kilda. The ‘Queens of the Pub’ are the survivors and have created the places we love today. St Kilda was once the playground for the rich, then fell into being an unfashionable place in the late 1950s. Migrants, the LGBTQI community, musicians and artists have helped to revive St Kilda and made it an attractive place to live, play and work today.

In the 1970’s pubs were once crowned our official meeting place, became our mecca, our local and females ran these pubs. Gerard and Marc recycled trash into a true royal treasure where they recreated a royal coronation scene set in a modern day inner city setting. The tabloid style images are based on true stories of running a modern-day business where it was the women who held the licenses as men were seen to be unreliable drunks. In order to survive in the 1970s beyond being a bar, they opened their doors to young musicians and held gay nights.

The coronation scene is made from recycled social disposables paying royal homage to inner city hotels and pubs against a punk backdrop of the 1970’s. Gerard and Marc commissioned local artist and jewellery designer Danielle Zanetti to create spectacularly hand-made detailed jewellery and costumes from bottle tops and recycled garbage . Over two years has been spent transforming these materials into the royal Cape, Crown and royal Jewels for the shoot.

Beautifully hand made up cycled dresses were also created by Local Designers Two threads to complete the Royal congregation.

‘We used recycled materials collected from local drinking holes to turn seaside trash into spectacular costumes and treasure. The waste and leftovers of beer cans and gold and royal red bottle tops, things that would normally be placed in the bin were crafted into precious objects and glittering, beautiful recycled royal props for our Queens.’ Says O’Connor.

‘These materials were collected from busy bars, restaurants and hotels operating in St Kilda and were crafted for months of pre-production work by jewellers, fashion designers and stylists who reside or work in the inner city. This is a call out where one person’s waste becomes another person’s collection of royal treasures.’ O’Connor continues.

Wasiak concludes, ‘Set against a punk backdrop this was the most exciting positive period it lead to a community of diversity, art, fashion and music; putting Melbourne and St Kilda on the world music stage. We proudly roll out the beer soaked royal red carpet inviting you to our vibrant show ‘Queens of the Pub’. This is the future, the past and the only way to be a Queen. Wear your crown proudly even if it’s from the gutter.’

Like a rising tide changing the shoreline they are constantly becoming – tender, flexing, magnetic and yielding. Repeatedly repairing themselves, yet falling prey to time and the limits of perception.

Curated by Kin Francis, The Body is More Than This presents visual narratives from six artists who identify as gender diverse and nonbinary. Works in this exhibition permeate across many ideas, from reckoning with histories of migration, experimenting with gender expression outside of Western restraints, and defining relationships with lands and family across distances.

Surrounded by the pillars and architecture of the Immigration Museum’s ground floor – Caleb Thaiday, Elijah Money, Luce Nguyễn-Hunt, Ari Tampubolon, Indra Liusuari, Kin Francis and Shin propose a new way of experiencing our bodies; seeing past borders: beyond preconceived cisgender identity and colonial understandings.

award-winning playwright and poet Amy May Nunn
returns to Theatre Works with their latest work; Lemon

Tree on Dreg Street. Incorporating music, ritual and rev-
elry, this joy filled premiere season is a heart-on-its-
sleeve ode to those who slip through the cracks, a love letter to the places we make sacred, and a celebration of

the deep human need for belonging.
Complete with a community of wonderfully oddball characters, the story of Lemon Tree on Dreg Street centres
around Twiglet and Boots, who live in a ramshackle house on the outskirts of suburbia. With their home, and the
buildings around them, just waiting to be gobbled up by developers, the pair is determined to make the most of
Summer while they can. But with an old Possum marrying their lemon tree, a vagabond Cowgirl officiating the
ceremony, and a Vulture circling the property, things are bound to get interesting…
“What makes this show different is the unusual balance it strikes between innocence and grit,” explains writer
Amy May Nunn. “There’s a wonderfully rich tapestry of poetry, music, and storytelling weaving in and out of the
play. A friend of mine described it as “Urban Queer A.A. Milne” and there’s definitely something in that. It has a

kind of grown-up storybook feeling. I’ve always been drawn to heightened worlds that are fantastical and com-
plex, like Spike Jonze’s adaptation of Where the Wild Things Are.”

“I think audiences will be surprised and delighted by the characters’ heightened personalities, hilarious ways of

expressing themselves, and slightly left-of-reality existence,” adds Director Miranda Middleton. “We’ve got a re-
markable team of creatives on board and we’re all working to create a piece like nothing you’ve seen before,

whilst also adding to the tapestry of epic and quintessentially Australian plays.”

plex, like Spike Jonze’s adaptation of Where the Wild Things Are.”
“I think audiences will be surprised and delighted by the characters’ heightened personalities, hilarious ways of
expressing themselves, and slightly left-of-reality existence,” adds Director Miranda Middleton. “We’ve got a re-
markable team of creatives on board and we’re all working to create a piece like nothing you’ve seen before,
whilst also adding to the tapestry of epic and quintessentially Australian plays.”

organisations and systems that have significantly improved economic and
social well-being for Australians. Economic system innovations have had a
profound impact on our lives, from the invention of banking in the middle
ages to the organisations established by the United Nations post-WWII.
However, their intangible nature means that few people identify these
changes alongside physical inventions.
Although invention is normally an incremental process, with copying and
adaption being the norm, the authors focus on reforms that were principally
new to the world at the time of implementation. The book is not about the
reforms and how well they worked, per se, rather about the people and the
political struggle to get them adopted. The authors have chosen to focus
on the stories where Australia has either taken a global leadership role or
made a considerable advance in a particular new institution. What these
stories show is that leadership in institutional innovation can come from
many quarters: academia, the community, politics and the bureaucracy.
Often the most successful teams combine people from all quarters albeit
with support from the fourth estate. The work shows how many reforms
began with modest beginnings, often an ordinary person with a vision, and
how it takes several attempts to get change accepted.
This key volume can be used to teach students of economics, political
economy and politics. It illustrates the type of networks, actions and
advocacy that is needed to get reform started and implemented and is written
in a style to engage policy and think-tank audiences.

Set upon white linoleum and cast in cruciform by halogen light, Like a Knife, the Horizon is a new work by Hamish McIntosh which explores queer time through self-destruction. A durational performance-installation for four dancers, the cast attempt a five-hour marathon in Temperance Hall’s Main Hall. They run towards each other yet never meet, trying in vain to arrive at a point between them and exhausting themselves in the process.
With queer communities haunted by historic and ongoing mortalities, a future can be denied to queer people just as they ‘deny’ the future of society through non-normative embodiments and social organisations. Time both rushes forward and freezes itself in place: violent and urgent, poised and hollow.
Like a Knife, the Horizon seeks to connect fatigue and obliteration to questions around queer experiences and embodiments. In other words, to invite reflection on the links between the ‘threat’ of queerness, death, and whether we can depend on what comes next. With friendly mascot costumes and overt metaphors, this is a spectacle in sweat the whole family can enjoy. Stay for a minute or an hour and ask if the future is ours to reach.

Centre Five features seminal works drawn from Institutional and private collections from seven artists from the Centre Five group of modernist Melbourne sculptors
who defined local artistic practice in the 1950s and 1960s and who represent a significant place in McClelland Gallery’s collection and development.

A collegial alliance was formalised emerging in the 1950s with émigré artists Inge King, Clifford Last, Vincas Jomantas, Teisutis Zikaras, and Melbourne-born Norma Redpath and Lenton Parr. These artists were responding to post-war conditions in much the same way as occured in New York.

Amongst the group were some fearless women with established International careers and united as polite ‘sculpture activists’, Centre Five aimed to bridge the gap between artist and public through exhibitions, lectures, and media interviews…including developing relationships with architects.

The modern world is full of stunning architecture and design, from sleek skyscrapers to intricate public spaces. As a photographer, I’m always looking for ways to portray these amazing structures in a unique way. This series of images captures patterns, colors and the designs of modern buildings and spaces in a bold and striking way that stands out from traditional photography. By abstracting the perspective of these structures, it allows viewers to perceive the world around them with fresh eyes; it’s like looking at familiar places through new lenses!
This collection also offers something special that other photographic collections can’t: its vibrant color palette brings life into any room while still maintaining an artistic sensibility. The strong lines between shapes create visual interest while adding depth to each image – making them perfect for hanging on walls as part of larger displays or simply enjoying on their own as individual pieces. Whether hung alone or grouped together with similar works this series will add a touch of sophistication wherever they are placed!
This eye-catching collection offers much more than just photographs – it provides viewers with entirely new perspectives on our built environment by abstracting common architectural elements we see every day but rarely take time to appreciate fully! With its vibrant colors and striking composition this series would be sure to make any space stand out from ordinary décor – perfect for art buyers who want something truly special in their homes or offices!

LEARN MORE

















Essayist, arts reviewer and researcher Kath Kenny shines new light on an unspoken yet pivotal moment in Australian theatre – and the rise of the women’s and sexual liberation movements – Staging a Revolution: When Betty Rocked the Pram is a sharp telling and behind the scenes glimpse into the revolutionary production of Betty Can Jump, and the trials and tribulations that unfolded for years to come.
On the play’s 50th anniversary, Kenny considers its ongoing impact on Australian culture today, and asks why the great cultural renaissance of women’s liberation has been largely forgotten.
In January 1972, five women took to the stage of Carlton’s Pram Factory to preview their women’s play Betty Can Jump. Claire Dobbin, Helen Garner, Evelyn Krape, Jude Kuring and Yvonne Marini mocked the ocker character beloved by Pram Factory playwrights, and performed monologues about men, sex, and how they felt “as a woman”.
Directed by Kerry Dwyer and produced by the Carlton Women’s Liberation group, the play’s frank revelations stunned audiences and shocked the Pram Factory world.
Set against a backdrop of moratorium marches, inner-city cafes and share houses, and the rising tide of sexual liberation and countercultural movements, Kath Kenny uses interviews and archival material to tell the story of Betty Can Jump. We hear from members of the Betty Can Jump collective, as well as others who were part of the Pram Factory world, including Carmen Lawrence, Max Gillies and Bill Garner.
She sets out her stake in this story, as a theatre reviewer today and as a child born into the revolutionary early 1970s. And she asks why feminism keeps getting stuck in mother-daughter battles, rethinking her own experience as a young feminist who clashed with Garner over the publication of The First Stone.
On the book, Kath Kenny says: “I first came across this story when I was researching early consciousness-raising groups and the origins of the phrase ‘The personal is political’.
While I was learning about how these women made revolutionary changes to the world for my generation, I also saw many parallels to the battles feminists are still fighting today. It made me think about how the word ‘revolution’ also means a movement around a circle. While there are many differences between the 1970s and today, there is so much we can learn from this story.”

With a remarkable... LEARN MORE TarraWarra Museum of Art, 26 November 2022 – 13 March 2023.
With a remarkable career spanning several decades, Melbourne-based Booth is a unique voice in
Australian painting and is considered by many to be one of the most significant contemporary artists
working in Australia today.
This new survey of paintings and works on paper will be the first major public gallery exhibition of
Peter Booth’s work since the NGV retrospective in 2003 and will feature a number of the artist’s
most significant works from the 1970s to 1990s, alongside important recent works from the past two
decades.
Curated by TarraWarra’s Anthony Fitzpatrick, the exhibition will be presented thematically, honing in
on and highlighting particular motifs, subjects and moods which have become hallmarks of Booth’s
expansive oeuvre: stillness and turbulence; alterity and alienation; mutation and hybridity; the
absurd and the grotesque; the road and the ruin; and the despoilation and the resilience of nature.
“This exhibition will reveal Booth’s extraordinary capacity to transmute his intensely personal
perceptions of the mysteries and forces of nature, and the folly and hubris of human endeavours,
into exceptional and deeply-compelling paintings and drawings,” Mr Fitzpatrick said.
A small group of abstract paintings from the mid-1970s at the start of the exhibition provide a
prelude to an important series of gestural paintings which mark the beginning of the artist’s journey
into a neo-expressionist figurative style.
The exhibition progresses through Booth’s vivid imaginings of an apocalyptic world characterised by
grotesque, unsettling, and at times absurd scenes of human and hybrid figures in varying states of
apprehension, aggression and conflict.
These works will be accompanied by a small selection of prints by William Blake, James Ensor,
Francisco Goya, and Samuel Palmer, visionary artists who have been important touchstones for
Booth and with whom he shares a number of affinities.
This survey will also bring together important works from the past three decades to convey
humanity’s often fraught and ambiguous relationship to the natural world.
“Initially Booth’s highly visceral paintings of fiery, turbulent environments were the stage for
confronting and, at times, violent human encounters. Since the 1990s, many of the scenes he has
painted have become increasingly depopulated, implicating the viewer who is called to contemplate
and navigate their own subjective relationship to these vivid landscapes.
“Most recently, the artist has returned to the apocalyptic imagery that characterised his first forays
into figuration, with large-scale paintings of desolate and devastated scenes of a world in a
cataclysmic state of collapse. This is art for a time of ecological and existential crisis in which
anthropogenic impacts have driven the planet, and its intricate web of ecosystems, to the brink of
utter catastrophe,” Mr Fitzpatrick said.
The exhibition will be generously supported by The Balnaves Foundation.
Hamish Balnaves, Chief Executive Officer and Trustee of The Balnaves Foundation, said, “The
Balnaves Foundation is pleased to continue its support for TarraWarra Museum of Art to deliver new
major exhibitions by Australian artists.
The Foundation is a proud partner in these important endeavours, providing vital opportunities for
Australian artists to be showcased, whilst providing outstanding arts experiences to a broad range of
audiences

LEARN MORE
Many of Australia’s favourite musical theatre stars including Lucy Durack (Wicked, Legally Blonde, Shrek), Verity Hunt-Ballard (Mary Poppins, Sweet Charity), Thomas McGuane (Frozen, Jersey Boys), Matt Lee (Mary Poppins, Frozen) and Kristie Nguy will lead the new musical production of MIDNIGHT, which is premiering in Melbourne in June 2023 at the Comedy Theatre.
With music/lyrics by John Foreman (Aussie Pops Orchestra, Carols By Candlelight) and Anthony Costanzo (Life’s A Circus, Cross Roads) and featuring an additional song by Kate Miller-Heidke (Muriel’s Wedding), MIDNIGHT is a magical romantic comedy that will delight audiences young and old.
Debuting just in time for the holiday season and loosely inspired by the Cinderella story, this enchanting new tale features Ella, a feisty, funny and passionate young heroine who doesn’t want or need a so-called Prince Charming. The Prince, enchanted by this alluring stranger, suddenly finds himself in uncharted territory and quickly learns that Ella is like no other. Can he prove his worth? Can she ignite his desire for change? Can all be achieved before the magical stroke of MIDNIGHT?The creative team for this reimagined enchanting tale includes Direction/Book by Dean Murphy (Charlie & Boots, The Divorce) and Pip Mushin (Resident: Book of Mormon, Fiddler on the Roof) with Choreography by Kelly Aykers (So You Think You Can Dance, The Wizard of Oz, Barnum) rounding out this magical offering.
“This is a major new large-scale musical and we are thrilled to be launching this production at the Comedy Theatre in Melbourne.  After six years of development, we can’t wait to see what audiences make of this feisty and original take on the classic tale and to bring the story to a whole new generation in a fresh and exciting way,” said Producer Spencer McLaren.
“Whilst we still have some of the beloved fairytale characters there are many new surprises that we know will delight audiences. MIDNIGHT has many Broadway-style showstoppers that people will be singing for years to come and a world-class cast including Lucy Durack as Ms Madrina, Verity Hunt-Ballard as Madame Bellington, Thomas McGuane as the Prince and Matt Lee as his trusted aide Andre. The coveted role of Ella is still being cast with a nation-wide search underway,” he added.
“The inspiration for MIDNIGHT is borne of the desire to create a fully formed, funny, complex heroine for a new generation and to create the definitive musical version of this magical, evergreen tale,” explained Co-Director Dean Murphy.
“The Cinderella story has been retold for hundreds of years with the most widely known version being written in 1950 and reflecting the sensibilities of that era. So, a number of our team with young children felt it was time the world of Cinderella was freshly revisited to explore how this intriguing girl became an icon, but told through a new, empowering story that sees this force-of-nature fight for great change whilst still embracing the love, support and magic from those around her,” he added.
MIDNIGHT is produced by Spencer McLaren (Dive Club, Puffs the Play, Mother & Son), Dean Murphy (Charlie & Boots,The Divorce, Strange Bedfellows) and Craig Donnell (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Grease – The Musical, The Sound of Music).

LEARN MORE These two distinct but complementary exhibitions depict organic forms in evocative, profound, and contrasting ways:
‘Ad Homonem’ is a surrealist depiction of experiences navigating the gay dating scene as a person of colour. Using still-life imagery loaded with symbolism and pop-culture references, David Thaiexplores and pokes fun at the quirks, intricacies and struggles of dating while bringing to light the toxicity pervasive within the queer community. Each image expresses an internal dialogue in which Thai questions these cultural norms while pondering his own identity.
‘Different flowers from the same field’ by Lisa Ray is about the relationship between artist and flora, and recognising that people and plants have individual ‘energetic signatures’. Ray’s images combine to create more than just a feast for the eyes – they provide warmth for the soul. They serve as a reminder that we each have our own unique beauty, expression, and energy, yet prompt us to remember that we are all different flowers from the same field.

LEARN MORE





















For a truly unique theatre experience this summer, Melbourne Shakespeare Company will be performing their brand new musical production of The Merry Wives of Windsor in the Rose Garden at the St Kilda Botanical Gardens. “There is nothing more idyllic than getting your summer Shakespeare fix whilst sitting amongst the roses at the St Kilda Botanical Gardens.” explained Artistic Director Jennifer Sarah Dean (Moulin Rouge! The Musical). “By setting the Merry Wives of Windsor in the Rose Garden we are allowing audiences to be completely immersed in the world of the play whilst celebrating the natural beauty all around us. It’s a one of a kind experience!!”
If the beautiful setting was not enough, audiences should expect to be blown away by the exceptional quality of the work produced by this young company. Since bursting onto the independent theatre scene in 2016, Melbourne Shakespeare Company have had a string of sell-out smash hit shows including most recently their hilarious contemporary interpretation of A Midsummer Night’s Dream at Central Park.
Directed by Emma Austin (Telling Tales) and Kate Weston (Heathers) and featuring some of Australia’s finest actors including Elle Sejean-Allen (The Mikado), Ellis Dolan (School of Rock), and Chris Broadstock (Hamlet), The Merry Wives of Windsor is guaranteed to entertain audiences young and old with its laugh out loud comedy, beautiful choreography and musical medleys.
Melbourne Shakespeare Company are known for being industry leaders in sustainable theatre using environmentally conscious designs in all of their productions. Audiences will be amazed by how costumer Emily Busch (Les Miserables), and set designer Hayley James (King Lear) can transform trash into treasure by using only reused, recycled and reclaimed materials to bring their beautiful designs to life.
The Merry Wives of Windsor also addresses some of Shakespeare’s more challenging ideas about gender by using a predominantly female cast often in non-traditional roles and proudly featuring a queer affirmative interpretation of the star-crossed lovers Anne Page (Lucy May Knight) and Fenton (Sarah Clarke).
The Merry Wives of Windsor is suitable for audiences of all ages and guests are encouraged to pack a picnic to enjoy in the sunshine. Seating is provided at the venue and protective sun wear is recommended for matinee performances.

This December, the MSO and MSO Chorus will perform Handel’s original work in Frankston and
Ballarat, and the acclaimed reorchestration by Sir Andrew Davis in two exclusive concerts at
Hamer Hall.
Well known to MSO audiences, Sir Andrew Davis is an internationally acclaimed composer and
former Chief Conductor of the MSO from 2013-2019. In a career spanning more than 40 years he
has conducted virtually all the world’s major orchestras and opera companies, led performances at
many of the world’s most important opera houses and at the major festivals.
He returns to Hamer Hall as the MSO’s Conductor Laureate to lead his orchestration of Messiah
for only its second performance in Australia.
Sir Andrew has a long and distinguished connection with the work having sung Handel’s Messiah
as a boy soprano. His reorchestration was a labour of love, in which he aimed to “clothe the work
with all the colours available from a modern orchestra.” As a result, Sir Andrew’s Messiah makes
use of larger on-stage forces and incorporates such instruments as alto flute, oboe d’amore, harp
and marimba.
A few years after its premiere in 1742, Messiah became an Easter time fixture, performed to raise
funds for the Foundling Hospital in London. The oratorio has never fallen out of favour and is now
more commonly performed around Christmas.
Rather than follow a specific biblical narrative, the text of Messiah is taken from various passages
in the Old and New Testament. The vibrant arias and recitatives bring colour and urgency to the
subject matter, with Handel utilising visceral word-painting throughout.
Under the baton of MSO Conductor Laureate Sir Andrew Davis, the Hamer Hall concerts will
feature the extraordinary vocal talents of soprano Jacqueline Porter, mezzo-soprano Catherine
Carby, tenor Andrew Goodwin, and bass-baritone Christopher Richardson with the full voice of
the MSO Chorus under Director Warren Trevelyan-Jones.
Following the Hamer Hall concerts, the MSO and Principal Conductor in Residence Benjamin
Northey will lead the Orchestra in his hometown of Ballarat, before a sold-out performance in
Frankston for two stirring performances of Handel’s Messiah featuring the mighty MSO Chorus.
The choral line up will also feature soprano Kathryn Radcliffe, mezzo-soprano Dimity Shepherd,
tenor Louis Hurley and bass Christopher Tonkin.

Sir Andrew Davis
One of today’s most recognised and acclaimed conductors, Sir Andrew Davis’ career spans over
forty-five years in which he has been the artistic leader at several of the world’s most distinguished
opera and symphonic institutions, including Lyric Opera of Chicago (Music Director and Principal
Conductor, 2000-2021), the BBC Symphony Orchestra (Conductor Laureate and Chief Conductor
from 1991-2004), Glyndebourne Festival Opera (Music Director 1988-2000), Melbourne Symphony
Orchestra (Conductor Laureate and Chief Conductor from 2013-2019), and the Toronto Symphony
Orchestra (Conductor Laureate and Principal Conductor from 1975-1988), where he also served
as Interim Artistic Director through 2020. In addition, he holds the honorary title of Conductor
Emeritus from the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra.

From the West End to Australia, the ground-breaking triple Olivier Award-winning stage show EMILIA makes its Australian debut at Arts Centre Melbourne from 10 – 27 November.
Inspired by 17th century poet and revolutionist Emilia Bassano – the supposed ‘Dark Lady’ of Shakespeare’s sonnets – this highly lauded show, written by British playwright Morgan Lloyd Malcolm, features a team entirely made up of women and non-binary creatives from diverse cultural backgrounds.
It’s 1609. Emilia Bassano is a writer, wife, lover, mother and muse. All she wanted was her voice to be heard. Could she have been the ‘Dark Lady’ of Shakespeare’s sonnets? What about her own poems? Why was her story erased from history?
Over 400 years later, women are still faced with sexism, inequality and harassment. In recent times where the #MeToo movement and Roe vs Wade have been most prevalent, it seems that we are not evolving fast enough. This theatre piece shows that we are Emilia, that we must stand up alongside her and be counted.
Fierce and provocative, EMILIA is the perfect mix of comedy and fury; a rollicking ride that takes audiences on an exuberant and moving journey though love, loss, identity, ambition, power, rebellion and what it is to be a woman in a man’s world.

LEARN MORE























ACMI proudly presents the premiere of Tully Arnot’s latest work Epiphytes, a multi-sensory virtual reality (VR) project exploring the sentience of plants, in the final instalment of the $80,000 Mordant Family VR Commission series.
Set within an abstract representation of Tully’s childhood backyard, Epiphytes consists of an environment featuring a diffuse, shifting, magenta palette. Reliance on sight is de-escalated in favour of sound and scent to influence the user’s bodily responses within the virtual space. The work honours alternative forms of plant communication and consciousness, inviting the user to question their own perception.
Developed during the Australian bushfires and the COVID-19 pandemic in response to the ongoing climate crisis, Epiphytes uses implied forms of nature such as shadows from an unseen canopy and mobile, amorphous shapes to elicit feelings of solastalgia – emotional distress over a loss of natural environments. Simultaneously the work encourages a more symbiotic and interconnected way of being in the world, drawing on the premise of the artwork’s botanical namesake: the epiphyte – an organism that feeds on the air, water and natural refuse of its environment to give back to its ecosystem.
Epiphytes features interviews with evolutionary ecologist Monica Gagliano, acoustic archaeologist Umashankar Manthravadi and echolocation teacher/blind researcher and activist Thomas Tajo. Arranging these sonic elements within the VR environment, Tully invokes curiosity and exploration by the user, while generating a conversational dialogue between these three diverse theorists.
Field recordings of local birds and other ecological sounds complement the recorded conversations of the theorists, along with sounds representing water and nutrients flowing through trees, suggesting a natural environment that is either fabricated or fading. The audio is spatially controlled, using virtual reality as a powerful acoustic tool to represent sounds that cannot be created in reality.
Artist Tully Arnot said: “With the support of ACMI and the Mordant Family VR Commission, I’ve had the opportunity to use VR to imagine the perception of plants and explore multi-sensory ways of being in the world. Through de-centring the human experience, I hope the project encourages audiences to reflect on more caring and interconnected relationships that we can have with each other and our ecosystems.”

The Australian Ballet School, the national centre for elite ballet, presents its much-loved end of year performance with over 100 of their full-time artists in training taking to stage for Summer Season with Butterfly at Arts Centre Melbourne on 9 and 10 December 2022.
The dynamic ability and grace of the students will be showcased as they perform a program of classical and contemporary works created by Australian choreographers Lucas Jervies, Simon Dow, Stephen Baynes and Paul Knobloch.
At the heart of the program is the magical title work Butterfly, which recently toured to Sydney receiving critical praise.  Choreographed by former graduate Lucas Jervies, this modern fairy tale told through movement, beautifully blends themes of realism and magic with classic and contemporary techniques.
The extraordinary artistry of the cast of 60 pre-professional dancers, transports audiences to a magical world through transformative sets and costumes by revered designer Hugh Colman.
“Reflection and journey are the heart of Butterfly. It’s an honour to work on this production with young emerging artists who are now in the position I was in 24 years ago at The Australian Ballet School. For me, the metaphor of the butterfly – to transform – is infinite. It’s a constantly evolving process. This production itself has evolved, with a new cast of dancers stepping into the roles this year, and making them new,” said Choreographer, Lucas Jervies.
Set to the joyous score ‘Le Papillon’ (The Butterfly) by Jacques Offenbach, Butterfly is a tale of a young boy who vies for the attention of the smartest girl in school. On an excursion to the butterfly enclosure at the Zoo, they immerse themselves in the kingdom of butterflies, momentarily forgetting the world outside and embarking on a magical journey.
In his other work on the program, π, students use their entire bodies as instruments of dance, percussion and vocalisation.  This exhilarating contemporary work was created by choreographer Lucas Jervies in conjunction with musician of The Australian Ballet School Oliver Northam.
Paul Knobloch has also choreographed two dance works for the program including The Jewellery Box, a charming classical ballet featuring symmetry, beauty and some challenging choreographic moments that showcase the Level 5 students’ skilful abilities. His other work is a dynamic movement dialogue with Level 7 students expressing thoughts, feelings, ideas without words and that moment in time when our thoughts become memories, In Memory of The Moment.
Wolfgang Dance, choreographed by Simon Dow and set to music from Mozart’s Eine Kleine Nachtmusik, is a joyous and cheeky performance from Level 4 and 5 students with the young dancers in 18th century-style white wigs and attire.
Dow is set to retire from The Australian Ballet School at the end of the year, having fulfilled a spectacular 10-year tenure.  The widely admired dancer, choreographer and educator graduated from The Australian Ballet School before going on to dance with the Stuttgart Ballet and become Principal Dancer with The Australian Ballet, San Francisco Ballet and Boston Ballet and an international guest artist. Dow also held leadership positions as Artistic Director of Milwaukee Ballet and West Australian Ballet, and was Associate Artistic Director for Washington Ballet, during his remarkable career.
Set to a stunning musical mix of Argentinian composers, El Tango choreographed by Stephen Baynes is performed by Level 8 students – their final performance before they graduate.  A social gathering around tables and chairs providing the setting for this evocative performance piece.

Hovering between dance and theatre, NEVERNEVERNEVERNEVERNEVERNEVERNEVER is a portrait of a friendship that unfolds between two physically different bodies. Hovering between dance and theatre, NEVERNEVERNEVERNEVERNEVERNEVERNEVER is a portrait of a
friendship that unfolds between two physically different bodies.
Devised over five years between 36-year-old Aaron Orzech and 13-year-old Sol Feldman, this
new work looks at the fleetingness of childhood. It shows a man and a boy dodging each other’s
shadows and refusing to stay still – they slide in and out of unison, pull apart and traverse the ghostly
landscape of an abandoned Neverland.
Years ago, someone noticed a strange resemblance between Orzech and Feldman and joked they
should create a work where they each played a version of the other. That was the beginning of this
special collaboration.
“As we’ve collaborated over a long period, our connection and understanding for each other has
grown stronger. Ultimately, we’ve made a work that is centred on our friendship that looks at boyhood
and never growing up,” said Orzech.
“We’ve created something full of energy, movement, fun, action, excitement and sadness. We’ve also
been inspired by the fantasy of Peter Pan, its author J M Barrie and the loss of his brother who died
while ice-skating,” explained Feldman.
NEVERNEVERNEVERNEVERNEVERNEVERNEVER playfully explores the taboo relationships between
adults and children as well as manhood and boyhood.
