One relationship.  Infinite possibilities.  What if every choice you’ve ever made and never made, exists… Marianne and Roland are polar opposites. A quantum physicist and a beekeeper.   A big universe thinker and an everyday believer.  String theory, parallel universes and Sliding Doors moments set the scene for this quirky and charming romance of endless invention. Winner of the 2012 Harold Pinter Award, Nick Payne is among a handful of truly groundbreaking young playwrights in the English-speaking world. In Constellations he…

Humanity has always sought to extend the boundaries of knowledge through innovation and discovery.

My Friend The Chocolate Cake

August 12
My Friend The Chocolate Cake

The songwriting genius of  David Bridie combined with the glorious strings of Helen Mountfort’s cello and Hope Csutoros’ violin are high in the curious collision of elements that have made My Friend The Chocolate Cake a failsafe concert draw, triple ARIA winners and a vivid presence on countless film and TV soundtracks these last two and a half decades. Their seven-album history is a multi-dimensional mural of modern Australia that illustrates its geography, its political mores and its predominantly suburban…

Differences between us are often the most surprising points of connection. A few years ago, Adriano Cortese was living above a shop on a street filled with bars, cafes and restaurants, in Melbourne. One night he decided he wanted to meet some new people so he walked onto the street and introduced himself to strangers walking past. This was the beginning of a night filled with intense personal dialogue and shared intimacy. This work is based on this event and…

The Song Company: Dreamers of the Day

September 8
The Song Company Dreamers

From ambiguous start to surprising finish, this program sets out to fragment and distort the listener’s experience of slowly waking from sleep, with the focus on changing perceptions of time – at times pulsing and pacy, at others hazy and elusive – with new arrangements of some iconic pieces of Classical music, culminating in a part-minimalist, part-improvisatory soundtrack of four pianos plus electronic and real percussion, a talking clock, and a twilight heroine on a kaleidoscopic ride through states of…

The Arrival

September 27 - September 30

Built on the animation of images from Shaun Tan’s new book, a fantastical world comes to life in a strange and wonderful metropolis full of floating ships, alien objects and weird animals. It is in this place that our hero Aki makes his home. The Arrival is a fusion of Tan’s beautiful, surreal illustrations with exquisite puppetry, haunting music and fine acting. The challenges, humour and adventures of arriving in a new country resonate with any arrival….a new school, a…
