June Sneak peeks 2016

It has been a tumultuous time for the Arts over the past few weeks. With the Arts sector contributing over $4.2 billion to Australia’s GDP, we are hoping for some strong arts policy initiatives from the major parties before the July election.

But, as they say, the show must go on.

Bangarra’s upcoming national tour of its new work, OUR land people stories, is dedicated to the late David Page, honouring his legacy.

ACO’s Richard Tognetti recently collaborated with musicians, lawyers, experts and thieves in the artistic hot house of Slovenia’s annual Festival Maribor. The result isTheft – an expansive program that traces the history of musical appropriation through the centuries.

In an intriguing collaboration, Bell Shakespeare partners with Griffin Theatre Company to reveal the fabulous world ofThe Literati. Written by Australian Justin Fleming after Molière’s Les Femmes Savantes, the setting is transported to 21st century Australia.

This year marks the 400th anniversary of the death of Shakespeare, and many of our major performing arts companies across the country are noting the fact, with performances, workshops, talks, collaborations and international tours. Of particular note, Malthouse Theatre is touring Shadow King, its Indigenous remake ofKing Lear, to London’s Barbican Centre for a season of 12 performances from 23 June.

Kind regards,
