Would you sit in the same room as the person who murdered your child, let alone have a conversation? A Conversation is the 2nd play in David Williamson’s Jack Manning Trilogy, exploring the use of community conferencing – a process where victims and perpetrators meet and talk. Described by Williamson himself as a play that could be ‘the most powerful I’ve ever written’, A Conversation sees two fictional families meet [...]

Ali Choudhry and Gavin Roach present the World Premiere of Let Me Show You My Hole. As far back as Ali can remember, he has always been for one reason or another, that guy on the outside looking in. He’s always been that guy who wasn’t quite included. Much of his personal work deals with identity through the use of portraiture. With this series, he wanted to explore this concept [...]

Gavin Roach presents the Victorian Premiere of Lake Disappointment "Kane and I were both rising stars. I was rising to the top of the hand-modelling world and Kane was doing his plays. Kane got his first action film and I became his double. We clicked. Everyone said so." Who’s your celebrity doppelgänger? Could you make a living impersonating them? How about being their stand-in on the set of a film? [...]

Gavin Roach presents the World Premiere of Your Silence Will Not Protect You. Do you remember the panic attack you had the first, and only, time you fisted someone? Gavin does. And it was hilarious. Having tackled bullying and body image, language and love, acclaimed queer artist Gavin Roach has caved into demand and is finally offering up a more “happy” and “fun” show. This surely will not end well. [...]

Gavin Roach and Jacob Thomas present the World Premiere of Transgression. Sure, we have marriage, but some of us still can’t take a piss without getting harassed. ‘Transgression’ is the premiere show by human rights advocate, Jacob Thomas, that explores the lived experience of being gender diverse after Australia passed marriage equality.

Two dancers – one naked, one clothed – occupy the same space, but as room to move grows smaller and smaller the challenge of sharing a shrinking world becomes ever more desperate. Lucy Guerin's Split is both simple in conceit and brilliant in execution. The Melbourne-based choreographer plays with time and space to hypnotic effect, spinning from the movements of the two dancers a power struggle of desires and demands. [...]

  With every project we risk things blowing up in our faces. For Branch Nebula, that’s just the beginning. High Performance Packing Tape is the OH&S nightmare that transforms everyday stationery and office consumables into the infrastructure of one person’s physical ruin. Performer Lee Wilson scales collapsing towers, hangs precariously from bridges unable to carry their weight and asks more of cheap materials than they’re ever able to give. Pivoting [...]

Presented with Chunky Move and Arts House in association with Creature Technology Co. When you enter an environment populated by varied lifeforms, animated machines and a set that itself seems to pulse and breathe, you know you’re not in traditional dance territory. This visionary creation throws every rule to the wind, and is the first work created by Antony Hamilton since taking up the helm of Chunky Move. Token Armies is [...]

The Piano Transformation Challenge

22 October, 9:00 am - 2 November, 5:00 pm

THE PIANO TRANSFORMATION CHALLENGE Unwanted pianos end up in landfill. In 8 years, the number of pianos dumped in Australia will fill the MCG! This is a tragedy not only because of the impact their dumping will have on the environment, but also because most discarded pianos contain quality old forest and sometimes rare timbers as well as thousands of other reusable and recyclable parts. Pianos Recycled, a Melbourne based [...]
