An ambitious new project aims to survey hundreds of people working in Australia’s arts organisations, to better understand why the sector’s stated goal of increasing audience diversity has so far seen limited success.

The project – led by researchers at Deakin University in collaboration with an industry advisory group – is one of the first large scale initiatives working across the Australia’s arts sector to investigate the challenge of audience diversity.

Professor Hilary Glow, from the Arts and Cultural Management Program at Deakin Business School, said every Australian visual and performing arts organisation funded by government was invited to participate – more than 1300 of them. 

“Arts activities in Australia receive a lot of public funding. But audiences for many arts activities continue to represent only a fraction of the public. Audiences are often white, middle-aged, urban, non-disabled and middle-class,” Professor Glow said.

When the current head of the Australia Council Adrian Collette was appointed CEO in 2019, he said that the Australian arts must reflect us, ‘not just some of us’. This idea that the arts should be for everyone, not just an elite, has been an issue of pressing concern for arts organisations across Australia and also for the governments and philanthropists that fund them. 

“All Australians should have access to arts activities they enjoy. Although people who work in the arts sector believe this, many organisations have had limited success in attracting diverse audiences. It seems to be a sticky problem,” Professor Glow said.

“For too long the focus has been on trying to ‘fix’ audiences, but organisational practice can tend to privilege some audiences over others.

“Our research shows that sustainably solving this issue requires holistic organisational change, not individual initiatives.”

The audience diversity project is supported by funding from the Australia Council for the Arts and the Ian Potter Foundation, with all state and territory arts agencies participating.

The project is guided by an industry advisory group, chaired by Indigenous playwright and artistic director Wesley Enoch AM. Mr Enoch said it was critical Australian arts reflected the community in all its diversity.

“The role of the arts to shape cultures is seriously compromised if there are groups who believe they can’t see themselves represented or can’t participate in meaningful ways,” he said.

“This research is about the future we are all striving to achieve where the clearly apparent cultural diversity of our nation is represented through the inclusive and cosmopolitan nature of our arts.”

Professor Glow said the team wanted to hear the views and experiences of people working across the industry at all levels.

“We’ve found arts organisations can be leaders, adaptors or avoiders of the change needed to engage new audiences,” she said.

“By working closely with industry on this project, we hope to help arts organisations identify the key barriers and supports to facilitate change that improves audience diversity.”

Findings from the survey will inform the development of toolkits and frameworks for action to provide practical resources that will help arts organisations make meaningful changes that expand their audience in a sustainable way.

“We understand there is a bit of survey fatigue, especially with a recent focus on the sector’s pandemic recovery, but this is the first time the sector has had the opportunity to have a conversation about this important topic,” Professor Glow said.

“Increasing audience diversity would have huge benefits for the arts sector, as well as the community. It would enable arts organisations to deliver value to more people, improve financial sustainability by increasing box office income, and support the telling of new and distinctive stories that better represent Australian diversity.”

The Bush is the first single from Public Holiday’s debut self-titled EP. Written in the wake of the
devastating 2019-2020 Australian bushfires, The Bush reflects lead singer Tasha Lloyd’s first-hand
experience of evacuating East-Gippsland during that summer.
Opening with the wail of harmonica and jangly guitars, The Bush starts with a slow simmering riff
that evokes visions of dry Australian summers. As soon as this riff begins, it gives way to a bass break
that builds into a wall of percussion, keys and driving twelve-string guitar.
This instrumentation creates a base for the narrative of the song as told through Tasha Lloyd’s lyrics.
Touching on Australian politics and issues as far reaching as First Nations agency, and Scott
Morrison’s incompetence, Tasha’s story telling is reminiscent of past artists like Joni Mitchell, Nick
Drake and Grace Slick. Personal, political and deeply complex, Tasha creates lyrics that reflect
Australian society – creating a story that feels both universal and intimate.
Above all, The Bush offers a critique of the Morrison government and political leaders during these
devastating environmental events. Utilising the emergency broadcasts and interviews with locals
during the bushfires, the song’s message is inspired by Australian bands like Midnight Oil and
Goanna. This song stands as a reminder of the devastation that inaction on climate change will cause
– ‘this is the biggest fight we’ve ever had for our babies, our animals, our land’.

Public Holiday Bio
Public Holiday formed in 2020 between Melbourne lockdowns. The six piece consists of
vocalist/guitarist Tasha Lloyd, guitarists Simon Wood and Harry Boyd-Gerny, bassist Alice Duncan,
keyboardist Colin Andrews and Drummer Jonathan Munro.
Public Holiday will release their debut EP in July this year. The four track EP explores themes of
climate change, Australian politics, queerness and identity.

Meat Market Stables – 2 Wreckyn St, North Melbourne

Following on from the acclaimed first production in their 2022 Season, And She Would Stand Like This, Antipodes
Theatre Company now bring Melbourne audiences another electric Australian premiere; Passing Strange.
An autobiographical rock musical from singer-songwriter and performance artist Stew, Passing Strange is the tale
of a young African American’s artistic journey of self-discovery. Transporting audiences from Black middle-class

America to Amsterdam, Berlin and beyond, this powerful production hailed as “One of the most exciting new mu-
sicals in years” by Time Out New York is a dynamic and poignant journey of personal and artistic authenticity.

Nominated for seven Tony Awards and winning for Best Book, Passing Strange isn’t just the story of a young bo-
hemian charting a course through sex, drugs and rock and roll – it’s a compelling and pertinent comment on be-
longing and identity, complete with inspiring lyrics and the heady intensity of youth.

Othello, while speaking of wooing his wife Desdemona, says, “She gave me for my pains a world of sighs / She
swore, in faith, ’twas strange, ’twas passing strange.” With a title that has its roots in Shakespeare’s Othello – a
play in which a black man navigates a white world – Passing Strange is not your standard “musical theatre” fare.
“This is such a unique and beautifully constructed piece, one that is truly unlike anything else,” explains Antipodes
Artistic Director Brandon Pape.
“I originally saw it on Broadway and was blown away by its potency. The songs contain some of the most witty,
poetic, and profound lyrics I’ve ever encountered. Each person who sees it will likely walk away with a different
moment or character or song that resonates with them. We’re transforming the space at Meat Market Stables
into our very own rock concert experience. The band will be on stage, and several songs will attempt to blow the
roof off. It’s going to be a blast.”

“It truly is a genre-breaking piece of theatre in a league of its own,” adds Director Dean Drieberg, currently Resi-
dent Director of Hamilton Australia. A multiple Green Room Award-nominee, Drieberg has worked on over 20

national tours playing at over 50 venues around Australia and New Zealand. He has directed productions of Sun-
day In The Park With George, Bare and Memphis the Musical, and is an exciting addition to the production.

works from the national collection of renowned British art institution, Tate.
Light: Works from Tate’s Collection will premiere 16 June – 13 November
2022 as part of the Victorian Government’s Melbourne Winter Masterpieces
series. Curated by Tate, UK and drawing from its prestigious collection, Light
features over 70 works spanning 200 years of art history including painting,
photography, sculpture, drawing, kinetic art, installation and the moving image.
The theme of light has been refracted through the lens of art in countless ways:
from the sublime to the intimate, from the spiritual to the scientific. Light
celebrates groundbreaking moments as artists from the past 200 years have
captured or harnessed light in their work – from Joseph Mallord William Turner
and Claude Monet to James Turrell and Tacita Dean. All are connected by their
fascination with the qualities of light as both material and subject.
The challenge of capturing this phenomenon has spurred artists across time to
develop innovative techniques and inspired moving image makers, who use light
and shadow as the building blocks of their craft. French artist, filmmaker and writer
Jean Cocteau said: “Cinema is the form of modern writing whose ink is light.”
Presented alongside ACMI’s award winning permanent exhibition The Story of the
Moving Image, which places the 19th Century arrival of the moving image within a
continuum spanning thousands of years of storytelling, this major touring exhibition
from Tate explores how light has inspired artists, uniquely placing film in a broader
art historical context.

engravings of Renaissance images and layers them with a mélange of modern detritus – from
aluminium cans to discarded laptop motherboards – scanned at ultra-high resolution to reveal
surprising new views and hidden landscapes.
Technology is as omnipotent and omnipresent as religion once was, controlling what we see and feel,
for better or worse. In the past, priests and preachers were the exclusive producers of cultural
propaganda, but today this role is subsumed by the ubiquity of our devices and our connection to the
internet.
Sacellum is a contemplation of this control of our hearts and minds; a moving patternation of the
classical and the contemporary. The portals of belief continue to look over us, providing a glimmer of
hope for what lies ahead.

After the Fire
From the end of 2019 into the beginning of 2020, fuelled by years of severe drought, massive
bushfires ravaged much of Australia. Their aftermath had a devastating impact on people and the
land. Thoughts of recovery seemed far from our control. To make sense of it all, Gavin Brown painted
a work called After the Fire – an attempt to find beauty amidst the chaos of the crisis.
And then coronavirus hit. The artist spent the majority of Melbourne’s lockdown in his studio, looking
outward. Once again, everything appeared so ugly. Trying to make sense of this bizarre and difficult
time, Gavin turned his focus to hope. Instead of dwelling on the destruction he chose to concentrate
on the regrowth of Australia’s flowering gums and native flowers. In response to this, he set about
creating optimistic artworks out of that time of devastation.
After the Fire aims to bring a series of works that inspire confidence in the resilience of humankind
and the regrowth of nature.

LEARN MORE Are You Like This, Strangers in Between) and their real-life partner,
award-winner Patrick Livesey (The Boy, George, Gone Girls) now finally
bring Melbourne audiences Angus Cameron’s gripping new work; DIRT.
Directed by Bronwen Coleman (The Actors Studio, NYC), DIRT is a thrilling and seductive exploration of sexuality,
solidarity and persecution. A multi-award winning production, it scooped four awards at the 2021 Adelaide Fringe
Festival, two at the 2022 Fringe World, was nominated for Best Independent Production by The Adelaide Critics
Circle Awards, and has earned over a dozen five-star reviews.
Traversing the compelling course of one night, DIRT presents as a simple meet cute – but all is not as it seems.
When a Russian and an Australian walk into a bar in modern-day Moscow, they decide to drink and party togeth-
er – but both need something from the other, and both have something to hide.
“Wil and I had talked a lot about queer persecution across the Russian Federation and were aware that not many
people in Australia knew what was happening.”, explains Actor/Producer Patrick Livesey.
“During the 2020 lockdown we decided to commission Angus Cameron to raise money for LGBTQIA+ organisations
in Russia and Ukraine. DIRT is a thriller that really plays with the audience’s perception of what is real and what is
not. We wanted the tone of the work to emulate the experience of being persecuted, of having to be on guard
constantly. It’s hard to bring thrillers and live theatre together, but we feel we’ve achieved that here.”
Proudly supported by the City of Stonnington, Regional Arts Victoria through their Sustaining Creative Workers
Initiative and amplified by Melbourne Fringe through their Cash for Creatives program this electrifying hot ticket
season runs for two weeks only and promises to be a highlight on the Victorian arts calendar – not to be missed.

LEARN MORE Helmut Newton Foundation, presents HELMUT NEWTON: In Focus, a landmark exhibition of one of
the fashion industry’s most prolific photographers and provocateurs. Tickets are now on sale ahead of the
exhibition’s Friday 29 April opening.
Known for his eyebrow-raising images and voyeuristic worldview, which changed the fashion landscape
forever, HELMUT NEWTON: In Focus will provide a new look at the life and legacy of the man behind the
lens. Celebrating Newton’s extraordinary personal story of reinvention and determination, the expansive
survey will include never-before-seen details of his remarkable upbringing alongside highlights from
Newton’s career as one of the most influential and visionary fashion photographers of all time.
Carefully curated by the Jewish Museum to explore the early years Newton spent working and living in
Melbourne, this is a global story with a uniquely Australian influence. Featuring a fascinating collection of
letters, diary entries and photographs, the flagship exhibition will shine a light on Newton’s Jewish roots and
early days in Berlin before charting his post-war life as an ‘enemy alien’ in regional Victoria and later work in
Melbourne.
Before leaving for Paris in 1961, where his risqué photography saw him dubbed the ‘King of Kink’, Helmut
would first begin to harness his skills in Melbourne. With little money and no connections, Newton opened
a photography studio on the top floor of a building in Melbourne’s Flinders Lane in 1946 and set about
establishing a career as a photographer in fashion, social and theatre circles. The exhibition will also
include insights into Helmut’s relationship with his Australian-born wife, the acclaimed actress, artist, and
photographer June Newton, who he met in Melbourne at this time. Through this period, Newton forged
a lasting bond with Melbourne (and with Australia, more broadly); a chapter of his life the exhibition will
capture like never before.
Over the course of his fifty-year career, Newton would go on to push boundaries and challenge norms
surrounding the depiction of femininity, sexuality and desire in the arts and the media. He photographed
countless high-profile women at the forefront of the world stage, including Grace Jones, Isabella
Rosselini, Claudia Schiffer, and even Margaret Thatcher. Helmut’s photography appeared in leading
international fashion magazines from Vanity Fair to Vogue, with more than sixty covers for Vogue Italia
attributed to Newton.
“We’re so looking forward to sharing HELMUT NEWTON: In Focus with our visitors – a program that will
inspire, challenge and undoubtedly leave an imprint on all who journey with us,” said Jewish Museum
of Australia Director and CEO, Jessica Bram. “Not only will the exhibition showcase Newton’s iconic,
trailblazing, and at times controversial works, it will also, and perhaps more significantly, share details
of the lesser known aspects of Helmut’s Jewish heritage and his formative and ambitious twenty-year
chapter here in Australia.”
With around 200 items on display, from original photographs and magazines – including the first edition
of Australian Vogue (1959) – and a trove of personal artefacts and letters from the Helmut Newton
Foundation, HELMUT NEWTON: In Focus will zoom into the unique story of Newton. The result is a
panoramic picture, never-before-seen, of the personal and historical forces that would go on to shape the
life and career of the visionary photographer.

LEARN MORE Finally, after two long yearsof lockdown Robert Earp and Venus Tomarz will launch Venus Virgin Tomarz.
Two brilliant minds come together for the Venus Virgin Tomarz photographic exhibition showing this
May in Melbourne’s, CBD. Combining the electrifying conceptual photography of Robert
Earp and the ‘surreal realness’ of Venus Virgin Tomarz. This is an exhibition that goes
beyond gender to a meeting of minds and worlds. The exhibition is named after Earp’s
‘divalicious’ collaborator and muse whilst the work explores the journey of gender and
transition between worlds.
The true story of Venus Virgin Tomarz is told in hyper-colourful composite photographs
that recall the sci-fi kitsch of yesteryear. “Venus’s idea of taking 1960s sci-fi as the metaphor
of her story of transgender, I just thought that was brilliant,” said Robert Earp, Photomaker.
“I’ve always loved the magician’s trick where you’re at a magic show and there is a woman
floating […] you know in your head there are strings attached but you still feel as though she
is really floating. In this work I have conceptualised Venus as my floating muse”.
In Earp’s images, entire galaxies and epic encounters have been created in minute detail,
using everyday household items as the building blocks; the stars are bicarbonate soda;
chalk dust becomes star dust; the moon a swirl of poured beer while a Kitchenaid blender
whips up tornadoes and alien flesh is created from fish in Earp’s own tank.
Earp came to acclaim early on in his career with an exhibition at the National Gallery of
Victoria with only his third roll of film. Fast forward and he was quickly embraced by the
commercial and fashion world making his name as a ‘maker’ of photographs, turning
concepts into art.
For Venus this was a meeting of minds “This art extravaganza is an astounding collaboration
between myself and Photomaker, Robert Earp” said Venus “who believed in the idea and
these important art dimensions for the globe. I have pure respect for the understanding, the
beauty and passion for detail of this production team of professionals.”
In this exhibition, nothing is as it appears and the piece poses profound questions around
perception, ideology, society and the future. Where are we going and how are we getting
there? Will we be able to accept each other in whatever guise we appear?
“Behind it all, the narrative is about equality, really,” says Earp. “It’s also about that fight between
Venus and Mars in the classic sense from literature – you know, men are from Mars and women
are from Venus. That fight is in everybody.”

Hercules was seen as a hero, a great protector and a role model. However, the lesser-known story of his violent murder of his wife and children is all but forgotten.

A powerful and challenging new work created by the acclaimed Daniel Schlusser Ensemble, Hercules is an unflinching attempt to topple hero-worshipping and idolisation while grappling with incomprehensible acts of violence.

Taking the twelve labours of Hercules as its entry point, Hercules is a visionary work of theatre that excavates the violence that lies beneath the myth of the hero.

Performed by a trio of fearless female performers: Mary-Helen Sassman, Katherine Tonkin and Edwina Wren, Hercules draws on Euripides, meme culture and contemporary politics as well as personal insights from the performers, who are mothers of young boys.

Hercules is a multi-modal theatre work. Three performers are trapped inside a kindergarten room that is suffocating in tragedy until it cracks open to reveal powerful symbolic and mythological worlds.

Daniel Schlusser said it has been almost 10 years since the ensemble presented its acclaimed M+M in Melbourne, “Our newest work tackles a range of social realities – the pressures of hyper-productivity, particularly on mothers and carers; culturally codified misogyny; and the tragic consequences of confused masculinity, heroism and coercive control.”

“Hercules is a complicated love affair with a hero. We are devising a theatrical poem that investigates heroism, surrounded by violence, infanticide, divinity and madness,” said Schlusser.

Arts House Artistic Director, Emily Sexton, welcomes Daniel Schlusser Ensemble, “This is a timely and politically urgent work on a topic that has received less attention that it should as we’ve navigated the challenges of the pandemic. We could not be in safer hands than with these exceptional artists, and I trust them fully to create a theatrical world that both surprises and challenges us in equal measure.”

Pete can trace a knitting and knotting obsession all the way back to Newcastle, UK, where his grandparents owned an arts and craft shop. Sadly for Pete, it was very much a “look don’t touch” situation, and his passion continued to bubble away under the surface.
It wasn’t until Melbourne was plunged into lockdown due to COVID-19 that Pete’s craft came into its own. Using locally sourced materials, Pete specialises in working natural materials into knots and patterns to create exquisite wall hangings, plant hangers, and wearable art.
Since operating as a business in 2018 Mr Macramè now hosts workshops for people to come and learn the craft, opened an Atelier as part of the ‘Renew Fitzroy Street’ initiative, stocks Macramè cords and rope for other macrame makers, all while working on a DIY book soon to be published later this year.
His latest artistic venture into Macramé Artwear has already gained interest from festival productions, boudoir photo shoots and story telling photographers. With some exciting new projects on the horizon for 2022, Pete is always looking to collaborate with other like minded creatives in events and performances to showcase Macramè as a more modern, contemporary art form.

Celebrating their first performance in Her Majesty’s Theatre, the Australian company have been invigorated by the enthusiasm of Melburnians, who have been awaiting performances since the season was announced in May 2021.
Jason Arrow, who was living in Melbourne when he learned he had been cast as Alexander Hamilton, is thrilled to be back in the city.
“The atmosphere last night was just incredible – thank you Melbourne for embracing us so wholeheartedly! We can already tell how spectacular this season is going to be, in such a beautiful theatre with awesome audiences, the energy is electric. It’s going to be fun!”
Producer Michael Cassel also celebrated the start of the highly anticipated season.
“It’s such an exciting time to be starting a new chapter of the Hamilton story in Melbourne, sharing this phenomenal show with a new city. The reaction from the people of Melbourne has been overwhelming, there’s so much excitement and anticipation in the air, so it’s amazing to be up and running with performances!”

Australian playwright Fleur Murphy premieres a compelling new drama about family and belonging.





I’ve been extremely humbled by the response we’ve received from various communities and individuals throughout the development of the work. What’s been amazing is the space it’s provided others to share their own stories of hope and resilience – whether in the rehearsal room, the classroom, over a cuppa and a scone after a reading, or in the theatre foyer. After all the pivots, cancellations, and rescheduling throughout the last two years, I’m looking forward to finally bringing HEARTH to the stage,” said Murphy.
Forged in the exploration of an environmental threat Australians know all too well – an approaching bushfire, HEARTH brilliantly strikes the balance between pathos and humour, immediately drawing audiences in with its witty and lyrical dialogue, relatable characters and timely themes.
It’s the 7th of February 2009 – forever known in Australia’s history as Black Saturday. It’s also Tom Robinson’s 18th birthday. Celebrations kick off at the family’s Kinglake home and nothing seems out of the ordinary. But tensions start to rise between Tom and his older brother Matthew, along with the temperature outside, and before the ice-cream cake has time to melt a deeply held family secret is revealed. Will bringing everything out in the open finally give the Robinsons the peace and acceptance they’ve constantly struggled for – or will it tear them further apart and make them question the very structure they’ve tried to uphold?
Urgent, heartfelt, at times hilarious, and achingly raw, this play investigates how good intentions can slowly erode away and reveal the cracks in the foundation of a family. It poses the questions: What makes a family? Is it love, blood or law? And, what breaks a family?
“The play is inspired by a number of things: my own upbringing in a small country town, family secrets and the heartbreaking accounts from those involved in the Black Saturday bushfires. In the beginning it may look like a familiar family drama but it’s a play scorched in secrets and trauma. For me, HEARTH is about striving for a sense of belonging and a desperate yearning to heal,” Murphy said.

In 2018, during the first of two artist residencies with Bundanon Trust, Martin was invited to observe the inaugural Indigenous fire initiatives and cultural burn program undertaken in the lead up to the 10th National Indigenous Workshop on Gumea Dharawal Country, South Coast NSW. The Fire programs were activated by Bundanon Trust on behalf of Firesticks Alliance by Uncle Noel Webster, Elder of Yuin-Walbunja-Murramarrang Country and the Wodi Wodi Traditional Custodians of the Yuin Nation.
 
Martin’s immersive large-format works explore her passion for the natural environment, documenting changes facilitated to save Country, restore damage incurred by climate change all while generating significant environmental, social and cultural benefits. Martin firmly believes Indigenous custodians hold the link to our fight against the climate crisis.
 
Martin’s passion to share the visual experience of the Cultural Burn practice became more relevant once she learnt that the areas in which the program was administered were unaffected by the devastating Black Summer fires. Her photography highlights the importance of Indigenous-lead programs and initiatives in managing land and healing our environment. RIGHT FIRE* draws attention to a positive association towards fire, its documentation inspired and reflective of Martin’s exposure to First Nations knowledges embedded in reading the land, soil and fire circles.
With a career spanning 25 years, Lucille Martin is an established Australian contemporary artist whose multidisciplinary practice integrates iPhoneography, photo-media, textile and performance to explore themes related to the natural and physical landscape, the social psyche and deep ecology. For Martin, her application of iPhone-capture acts as an extension of the body in the merging of performative and documentary practices she captures while walking the Australian landscape.
Martin has received significant awards including four Australia Council for the Arts grants, a career fellowship from Department of Culture and the Arts, West Australian and peer-awarded residencies in Tokyo, New York and Australia. Her program of work encompasses curatorial practice, community development, higher education and policy advocacy

A discarded shopping list, a handwritten sign on a shuttered shopfront and the contents of a ticket collector’s jacket pocket have been transformed into works of art that reveal fascinating stories of Melbourne’s past and present.
From Mundane to Friday: The Art of Everyday Melbourne captures the mood of the city over the past few years and injects new life into a whimsical collection of found objects, ephemera and life’s detritus.
Ceramic artist Kenny Pittock has worked with the City of Melbourne Collection to create an exhibition that imbues value and cultural meaning into otherwise disposable objects. From Mundane to Friday features new works from Pittock that shine a light on the city’s pandemic past, alongside existing pieces from the Collection that encapsulate stories from pre and post-colonial settlement.
Through his artistic practice Pittock gives permanency to fleeting moments by creating ceramic replicas of temporary objects. As part of the exhibition, he has replicated 25 shopping lists gathered during Melbourne’s lockdowns, along with 19 signs found hanging on the front doors of businesses through the city on 28 March 2020.
Pittock’s unusual fascination with abandoned shopping lists harks back to his teenage years.
“I was 15 when I first got a part-time job as a supermarket cleaner and trolley pusher. I’ve worked there on and off for more than half of my life. Part of the job is getting rid of any rubbish left behind in the trolleys. It’s usually just receipts and catalogues, but often, more interestingly, it’s abandoned shopping lists. Rather than throw them away, I read them and soon began to collect them. I now have a collection of more than 5000 found shopping lists,” he said.
Melburnians’ recent experience of lockdowns can be seen in some of Pittock’s more recently acquired lists.
“While shopping lists may appear to simply capture mundane everyday life, these past two years have produced a form of everyday life that has been anything but mundane. Our world has changed during the pandemic, and this is reflected in our buying patterns. One of the lists featured here reads: Get pkt rice if you can and Butter chicken or something else. When panic buying struck, many lists began to include back-up plans for when a first preference wasn’t in stock. The lists also began to reflect a shift towards community spirit; for instance, one list includes Chocolates for neighbours.”














Likewise, A Sign of the Times, another project of ceramic mimicry, captures the hope, gratitude, concerns and fears of a city in lockdown. The 19 pieces, each hand sculpted from earthenware clay, kiln-fired and hand-painted, are exact replicas of signs hanging on the front doors of businesses through Melbourne city on 28 March 2020. They include signs from restaurants and cafes, gyms, retailers and public venues.

Natalie King is the only Australian curator to have ever curated two national pavilions at Venice Biennales, New Zealand 2022 and Australia 2017.
Somewhat of a pioneer in curating Indigenous artists on the global stage, King has helped raise awareness about the effects of colonisation across the AsiaPacific, has provided multiple international artistic platforms for Indigenous artists and has provoked debate through the international art world.
Yuki Kihara has initiated the FIRSTS, an informal Firsts Solidarity Network of national pavilions established for the 59th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia.
An artist-led initiative comprising of artist/s who are a first time representative from a marginalised or under-represented group in their respective country or a first time country participant at the Biennale Arte, will offer visitors to Venice a route to discover these ‘firsts’ at the global art world event.
 
Yuki Kihara, is the first Pasifika, Asian and Fa’afafine (Sāmoa’s ‘third gender’) to present in the New Zealand Pavilion and Yuki believes the informal network of FIRSTS offers collegial support for the participating artists and an opportunity to initiate discourse around pertinent issues such as the internal structures of national pavilions and their commitment towards equitable representation.

LEARN MORE International hit musical Girl from the North Country, by Conor McPherson, with music and lyrics by Bob Dylan, comes to Melbourne’s Comedy Theatre from 29 April, after attracting rave reviews in Sydney and Adelaide.
This modern masterpiece features an extraordinary cast including Lisa McCune, Chemon Theys, Peter Kowitz and Helpmann Award winners Helen Dallimore, Greg Stone, Christina O’Neill and Peter Carroll, alongside Terence Crawford, Grant Piro, Elizabeth Hay, Blake Erickson and James Smith.
The exceptional ensemble features Tony Black, Samantha Morley, Tony Cogin, Laurence Coy, Grace Driscoll and Liam Wigney, with the live on stage band, The Guilty Undertakers consisting of Cam (CJ Stranger) Henderson on acoustic and slide guitar, Xani Kolac on violin and mandolin, Mark Harris on double bass and Musical Director, Andrew Ross.
“a touch of magic…McCune is exceptional” – The Guardian
“A ravishing production! Bob Dylan’s songs have never sounded so heartbreakingly personal and universal. As close as mortals come to heaven on earth.” – New York Times
“[Lisa McCune] A towering performance” – Sydney Morning Herald
Set in 1934 Minnesota, it centers on a community living on a knife-edge in the local guesthouse, and features over 20 of Dylan’s songs from across his career – from 1963’s Girl From the North Country to 2012’s Duquesne Whistle plus Hurricane, I Want You, Slow Train Coming, You Ain’t Going Nowhere and Like A Rolling Stone – all beautifully reimagined and woven through the story.
In an interview with the New York Times, Bob Dylan confirmed that he has seen the new musical The Girl from the North Country: “I saw it as an anonymous spectator, not as someone who had anything to do with it,” Dylan told the Times. “I just let it happen. The play had me crying at the end. I can’t even say why. When the curtain came down, I was stunned. I really was.”

LEARN MORE “This will be a very special concert. The first time I met Patti was just over 30 years ago, when she was singing at a concert with Bert. She was fabulous, and I can’t wait to hear her voice with the 60-piece orchestra,” said John Foreman.
“David is a magnificent performer and an Aussie Pops Orchestra favourite. Harrison is a newer member of the APO family, and our audiences have loved his performances over the last few years,” he added.
Patti Newton said “I’ve been performing for as long as I can remember – it’s something I just love to do. It will be emotional for me, being back on stage, and I know it’d be just wonderful to see all of those beautiful, smiling faces in the audience. As well as being a celebration of mums on Mother’s Day, I’ll also be performing a special tribute to Bert. He always included me in everything, so it seems fitting that we include a tribute to him at the concert. I’m very much looking forward to working with David, Harrison, John and the 60-piece orchestra.”
Australian showbiz legend Patti Newton is one of Australia’s most loved performers with a career spanning over 50 years. Patti began her long and successful career at the age of four including stints with Ch 7, radio and Ch 9’s In Melbourne Tonight. She also appeared regularly with Bert Newton on Good Morning Australia. More recently, she has appeared on Ch 7’s Dancing With The Stars and Ch 9’s Celebrity Apprentice.
For over 40 years, the Aussie Pops Orchestra has presented a unique blend of popular classical and contemporary music to Australian audiences. They have performed alongside many of the world’s favourite singers including Luciano Pavarotti, Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, Peter Allen, Andrea Bocelli, Dame Joan Sutherland, Sir Cliff Richard, Ray Charles and many more. During the pandemic, the Aussie Pops moved online, with virtual performances attracting hundreds of thousands of views in Australia and around the world; but the musicians are particularly enjoying to returning to the concert platform.

Under the radar: Male homosexual lives in post-Second World War Australia
 
Oral and written history in Australia has been recorded mainly from a heteronormative perspective and has largely ignored the lived experience of LGBTI people. Yet, it is in examining the lives of ‘the other’ that society can fully understand its own breadth of experience and practice and learn to reassess its past in order to inform its future. By researching the lives of homosexual men from 1946 to 1959 the study aimed to make a contribution to understanding a significant but largely unknown part of Australian history. It examined how homosexual men survived the challenges they faced and how they accommodated their homosexual desire. Data was gathered through interviews with 27homosexual men who were at least 16 years old in 1946. It used narrative analysis of life stories to construct a picture of what life was like for the participants and sought to understand how they‘ made sense’ of their lives at the time, the impact institutions had on those lives, and how they survived an era that was hostile to homosexuals. A sense of urgency informed the research because it was a pathway to knowledge and insight about Australian history that if not recorded would soon be lost forever due to the advanced ages of those who lived through this period. (Since the research was undertaken a number of the interviewees have sadly passed away).

GlamourPussy & The Hip Replacements present a joyful
cabaret of songs and humour celebrating the best years of life.
GlamourPussy &amp; The Hip Replacements perform at Chapel Off Chapel in Prahran on Saturday 30 April.
“GlamourPussy came about because I found myself at a ‘certain age’ – post menopause and feeling fabulous-
but all the messages were “you’re done, love,” but I felt far from it. Actually, I felt better than I had for as long as I
could remember,” said creator Naomi Eyers.
“Then something glorious started to happen. The less “visible” I was to the outside world, the more ‘visible’ I
became to myself, and others like me. This spark came from within, and not from being reflected and affirmed
externally. It was like I stepped through the mirror to the real world: The world of GlamourPussy.”
GlamourPussy is the queen of post-menopausal zest, a blue-rinse princess and she’s on her final run,
her last hoorah and she’s embracing it. GlamourPussy is an invitation to embrace your radiance no matter
what age you are. She flirts, she sings, she is joyous and calls others to join her. She doesn’t need anyone to tell
her she is sassy and gorgeous, she knows it – and she knows you are too!

LEARN MORE

Agent Bodies considers new propositions of what a body is, what it has been, and, perhaps most importantly, what it could be.  This exhibition interrogates how human bodies, other bodies, and the space between bodies are contextualised and understood today.    
The artists in the exhibition share an interest in examining the various freedoms and constraints enacted upon bodies.   
Exhibition Curators: Mikala Dwyer and Drew Pettifer.
The exhibition includes works that question the performance of identity, bodies in motion, and various states of bodily integrity – birth, sex, and death. Working across a diverse range of media, the artworks in Agent Bodies share an interest in interrogating the various freedoms and constraints enacted upon bodies.
Many of the artists included in the exhibition recognise bodies as fluid, hybrid, permeable, and ambiguous. They explore how bodies dictate the shape of time and space, but also how the shape of time and space can influence bodies. They reflect where the body is, where it isn’t, and the various states in between. In this way, there is an affinity with radical forms of queerness, intersubjectivity, and intersectionality.
“Agent Bodies was initially formed from a personal perception that although we have incredible contemporary artists interrogating bodies – and I mean ‘bodies’ in the most expansive ways – there had been a lack of curated projects critically reflecting on how our understandings of bodies have shifted. It was through a series of critical conversations with Mikala Dwyer that this grew into a curatorial project that gives a diverse range of incredible artists a platform to offer their own thoughts and frameworks for understanding bodies today.”
“I’ve had the opportunity to work with some exceptional artists on this project, but the chance to engage with a creative mind like Mikala in co-curating this exhibition has been eye-opening. Her own practice has engaged with the body in radical and thought-provoking ways, and she has a way of effortlessly cutting through to the essence of things; she understands artists and creative practice in such a visceral way.’’ Co-curator Drew Pettifer

LEARN MORE Driftwood is a story of art and creativity, survival and perseverance, family and love. This is a piece of theatre about the resilience found through creativity and in the face of adversity. It is a story of survival and the endurance of the human spirit. It is also about displacement and finding solace and strength in family, art and community. While it is the story of the love between Karl and Slawa, two Viennese artists, it is also the story of one woman’s ingenuity, invention and adaptability.
Driftwood captures the universal narrative of seeking safety for yourself and your family, the lingering effects of intergenerational trauma and inspiringly shares the contribution one family has made to the nation.
The plight of refugees during wartime and the themes of loss, escape, migration, internment and resettlement remain relevant in modern Australia. They are dramatically illustrated through this uplifting true story of survival and add to its universal appeal. The themes also mirror today’s growing global dislocation, division, uncertainty and isolation, increased surveillance, fear, lockdowns, and closed borders, as well as the loss of community and connection that threatens our social fabric and, ultimately, our humanity.
The title reflects the transitory nature of ‘driftwood’, which drifts to a temporary resting place only to be picked up by the next wave and taken on a further unknown journey. This epic story crosses continents and tells a significant story of art and artists through history. Dark and tragic in parts, it is nevertheless embodied with a fierce element of hope, intelligence, tenacity and survival. Driftwood is more than a memoir. It is an inspiration. Eva weaves her remarkable story of escaping the Holocaust and overcoming its ghosts to find the key to freedom.

With the arrival of covid and the move to
digital, Game Boys Comedy honed their
skills with two Digital Fringe shows. They
want to explore what they learnt in the
digital space and bring it to the live theatre
experience. In Escape to the Megaverse
they’ll be using live video feeds, green
screens, immersive sound design and
custom lighting to explore the intersection between technology and live performance.
Escape to the Megaverse has themes of repetition and revision as they seek to critique their own creative
process and invite the audience to be a part of the show and leave their own unique stamp on the evening.
They’ll be experimenting heavily with the use of live video feeds in various ways – digitally including audience
members in the show while they sit in their seat, using their screen as a portal to interact with live digital
versions of each other, even producing a live sitcom using audience member phones as cameras.
Game Boys Comedy is a unique collaboration between brothers Eden and Joshua Porter, and Melbourne
based audiovisual designer Kinetic Screen. For the past 7 years they have been delighting audiences with
their festival shows. They’re known for seamlessly combining technology and live performance in increasingly
complex ways. Over the years they’ve honed their unique form of comedy, combining razor sharp writing,
improvisation with the audience and literally hundreds of audio/visual cues. Escape to the Megaverse is their
most ambitious show yet.

STATION is pleased to present Particle Days by Jon Cattapan, the artist’s third solo exhibition with the gallery. With a vibrant practice spanning over 45 years, Cattapan is recognized as one of Australia’s most-highly respected artists. Atmospheric in nature, the artist’s new suite of large-scale paintings subject colour saturated panoramic city vistas, figurative groupings and data-scape mark making.
Particle Days physicalizes that which the artist imagines to ‘float invisibly in the world’, specifically referring to the sharing, duplication, extraction and collection of data and aptly more recently, virus particles. With duality, Cattapan’s conceptual parameters are reflected in a process of scanning and piecing together found and personal imagery that become compositional references for which he paints fields of colour, grid patterns and illuminating flares of light that indicate a presence or energy.
Enveloping in scale at over 3 meters in length, The World is Turning 2022 is a significant new painting that captures the artist’s sense of restlessness with the world through passages of light and dark that metaphorically speak to the flux of encountering conflict and peace.
Underpinned by contemporary global culture and recent history, Particle Days negotiates the artist’s heightened consciousness of a ‘turning world’ that negotiates digital spheres, networks of communication, disputed territories and emotional states of being.
To accompany the exhibition, the artist is launching a new publication titled Jon Cattapan: Threshold Signs 2008–2021 on Saturday 9 April 2022 at STATION, Melbourne.

and the current social hierarchy – young people now have the
competitive advantage.
Trapped in one apartment is a woman in her fifties who wants to survive
so that she can see her son one last time, to ask forgiveness. What does
a mother owe a son when the world is collapsing?
In this intimate 90-minute play, one family’s struggle becomes a war cry
against complacency.
#NoExemptions is written by Angela Buckingham and directed by icon
of independent theatre Susie Dee. Produced by The Shift Theatre,
this story is a walloping of intergenerational justice. In the near future,
young people hold their parents to account for environmental collapse.
A family reuniting for the last time, confronts each other with complicity
in the crisis – intimate, intense, told with a twist and shot through with
apocalyptic black humour.
Liz Jones, Artistic Director of La Mama, describes this as a story about
what happens to people under extreme stress.
Imminent danger informs every aspect of the production, from sound
design by multiple Green Room Award nominee Ian Moorhead, to set
and costume design by winner of the Beleura John Tallis Design Award
Sophie Woodward.
