MAHMOOD KHAN

Studio Sessions

Saturday 27 May

Tickets: $60-$99

Khan was born in a village in Pakistan but that did not stop him from pursuing his dream of a career in the recording industry. Luck came knocking when his application for a U.S. Visa was accepted, and he came to America. Soon he found work as a second engineer for Jam Power, a black music production company located in Los Angeles. Within a few years, Khan was soon writing, producing, recording and mixing with some of the biggest names in the music industry. His experience at Jam Power let him acquire a wealth of knowledge for a range of music genres, including Funk, Hip Hop, folk, Qawwali, Country, Bluegrass, Gypsy and Mariachi.

Khan’s next big break came when he worked with Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan for his first solo album Only One, which sold 6 million units worldwide. Only One helped launch his career across the soundwaves of World music stations across America. He then spent several years in Pakistan developing his craft, and working in India. His efforts in India led to a critically-acclaimed album, Panah, recently re-released by Sony Music.

In 2007, he enrolled at Sydney Film School for a film degree and seized the opportunity to record a live album at the concert hall at Sydney Opera House. The single “Like the River” came from the live recording, and went on to become a number-one ARIA pop hit in October 2009. Khan’s musical efforts and gifts were recognized by the Australian government awarding him Australian citizenship.

“It is with deep gratitude as an Australian world music artist that I announce my Oz tour. I can’t wait to share stories of my adventures in the music industry, as well how I managed to beat the odds, my life’s greatest find, ‘Australia’, spirituality and timelessness. I want to intimately connect with my Australian audience to celebrate the richness, diversity and wealth of inspiration that lives on this land,” Khan said.

THE WITCHES – by Roald Dahl

A Griffin Theatre Company production

Thursday 8 June: 7pm

Friday 9 June: 11am

Tickets: $18.75-$25

Think you can outwit a witch and outrun a mouse?

When one little boy unwittingly stumbles into the annual meeting of witches, he hears their nasty plan to get rid of all the children in the world – by turning them into mice! It’s going to take smarts and sneakiness to stop them and not get squished in the process.

Think you can outwit a witch and outrun a mouse? Then grab a seat in the front row for The Witches, bursting onto the stage as a mind-boggling and madcap one-man show.

Brave boys and girls, rat-racers and retirees are in for a wicked and wonderful time. Lucas Jervies directs this bubbling concoction, based on David Wood’s adaptation of the Roald Dahl classic, with one actor running amok in a virtuoso physical performance.

Recommended for ages 6 and over

THE 7 STAGES OF GRIEVING

A Queensland Theatre and Grin & Tonic Theatre Troupe Production

Tuesday 13 June 8pm

Wednesday 14 June 10am

Tickets: $25-$49

Written 20 years ago by Wesley Enoch and Deborah Mailman, The 7 Stages of Grieving has become a vital piece in the Australian theatrical cannon. Studied by thousands of students and hailed as a contemporary classic, the play explores the grief of Aboriginal people and their hopes for reconciliation.

Chenoa Deemal stars in this one-everywoman show, sharing poignant stories from across the phases of Aboriginal history and across its many mobs. Some are tales of devastation, others joyous testimonials of survival and triumph. What binds them is their purity of purpose – to invite people, Aboriginal or otherwise, to join in a journey of discovery and healing.

 

 

Salt House Theatre Company presents

THE THREE AMIGOS

Friday 16 June 8pm

Saturday 17 June 8pm

Tickets: $33-$33.50

Set in 1916, ¡Three Amigos! is the tale of three excellently named silent-movie stars – Lucky Day (Ethan Dale), Dusty Bottoms (Jayden Gobbe) and Nerrida ‘Ned’ Nederlander (Emily Mann) – who have their contract terminated and head to Mexico to put on a show for a village. Problem is, the confused stars have actually been hired to rid Santo Poco of a deadly bandit named El Guapo (Ryan Bates). ¡Three Amigos! is whip-smart, containing inspiring slapstick and wordplay, it’s also spectacularly silly, taking in such surreal delights as a singing bush, a plethora of piñatas and a villain whose henchmen gift him a woolly sweater.

 

¡Three Amigos! has a warmth that’s nothing to do with the blazing desert sun. Even the bad guys are lovable, while the lead trio have the kind of easy chemistry which can’t be faked.

 

 

The Art House presents

CORANDERRK

An Ilbijerri Theatre Company and Belvoir Co-production

Saturday 24 June 8pm

Tickets: $25-$49

CORANDERRK is about what might have been.

At a Victorian Parliamentary Inquiry in 1881, the men and women of the Coranderrk Aboriginal Reserve went head-to-head with the Aboriginal Protection Board. Their goal was both simple and revolutionary: to be allowed to continue the brilliant experiment in self-determination they had pioneered for themselves on the scrap of country left to them.

CORANDERRK recreates the Inquiry. This is both great theatre and great history. It revives the voices of all those, black and white, who fought for a better pact between the country’s oldest and newest inhabitants.

This special production pays tribute to the resilience and adaptability of a people who rose to the challenge despite the odds, appropriating the power of the written word to make their own voices ring loud and clear.

CORANDERRK a collaboration between leading Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists, researchers, education experts and community members. The production aims to encourage a shared understanding of the past between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people.

Warning: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander audiences are warned that this production contains images of deceased persons

JOHN WILLIAMSON IN CONCERT

Friday 25 August 8pm

Tickets: $33-$54

He is firmly cemented in the nation’s musical culture, his impressive career spans more than forty years. He has survived and soared in the often cut-throat entertainment industry. His unofficial anthems, tributes to legends and unsung heroes and tender ballads have captured the spirit of the nation in song unlike any other. His honest and passionate songs are synonymous with the country that inspires him and connect him with his countrymen regardless of age, sex or creed.

Add to this his ability to deliver unforgettable live concert experiences that combine the perfect blend of humour, romance and campfire stories woven together by his music. You can understand why he is one of the most in-demand live performers in Australia.

There is no question that JOHN WILLIAMSON is the real deal, stands by what he represents and is unashamedly proud of the country he loves. For this artist, whilst the awards are a nice recognition, there is no doubt it is the reaction from his audience that is the most important.

It all started when he penned that classic OLD MAN EMU back in 1970. From this ‘silly’ song (as he often refers to it) that went to #1 for five weeks, he has continued to create hits including TRUE BLUE, COOTAMUNDRA WATTLE, RIP RIP WOODCHIP, RAINING ON THE ROCK, THE BIG RED, WINTER GREEN, SALISBURY STREET, GALLERIES OF PINK GALAHS and HAWKESBURY RIVER LOVIN’ to name but a few of the 400+ songs written by the multi-award winning songwriter.

Inducted into the prestigious ARIA HALL OF FAME in 2010 along his journey he has also secured three ARIA Awards, 25 Golden Guitars, MO Awards, APRA Awards, Platinum and Gold albums and over 4 million album sales to name just some of the recognition he has earnt.

Accolades and awards though have never been a huge deal to John Williamson; it has always been about the fans to the ever humble ex-farmer. Even after what he has achieved, or what he has been invited to be a part of, he remains nonchalant about it all.

You can call him what you want, Mallee Boy, True Blue or just plain Fair Dinkum; but there is no denying that after more than forty years in the music industry, John Williamson is truly an Australian icon.

Whilst he is ingrained in Australia’s history, he continues to prove he is also ingrained in its future. At the age of 71, John continues to write music and tour the country. In August 2016, John released his new album ‘HIS FAVOURITE COLLECTION’, a special 4 CD set containing John’s favoured songs that he has written.

A distilled version of the original Be Your Self, Be Your Self Redux fuses Stewarts audacious choreography with spoken word to create an exciting dance work that leaves audiences questioning the underpinnings of who they are.

ARJ BARKER- ORGANIC

Saturday 16 September 8pm

Tickets: $46.90-$49.90

His stand-up is both insightful and pointed, like a mind-reading thumb tack, if there was one of those.

‘Arj has a way with words that leaves no word wasted, taking an approach that works well on paper, yet is taken to another level when performed by Arj in his trademark style.’ Scenestr

‘A must see for anyone who loves a laugh…****’ Adelaide now
