    Oyster Boy

    Feb 27th 2021, 6:00pm - 7:00pm

    Presented by Artback NT and Araluen Arts Centre Oyster Boy lives inside an oyster. He is a big fishy weirdo just waiting to be shucked. But is the world ready for his nutrient rich, gender fluid, sand intolerant presence? Created by proven comic geniuses Kyle Walmsley and Elizabeth Millington, Oyster Boy is a hilarious black comedy for anyone who’s ever tried to fit in – but failed. After a Darwin Festival 2020 world premiere - this show is guaranteed to shock, delight, disturb and entertain. Internationally trained clown, Kyle Walmsley, performs this physical and absurd clammy comedy that will have you finding your inner bivalve mollusc. In a time when we’ve all been inside for too long, sometimes you just have to go shuck yourself.

    Lower the Bar

    Feb 27th 2021, 8:00pm - 9:00pm

    Presented by Artback NT and Araluen Arts Centre Lower the Bar is a hilarious look at the world of dating in a place of isolation. Fresh from sold out Darwin Festival 2020 shows, Sarah and Kyle bring their original brand of sketch comedy for the millennial experience. While we’ve all been a little more disconnected than usual, Sarah and Kyle will turn your iso shame into an hour long lol-fest. As individuals and as a society, we have had to learn to pivot and reframe our standards and expectations. Lower the Bar tackles dating, self-image, family, ambition and work ethic during the time of COVID-19. Passover Seder over FaceTime, Pilates classes over zoom, sex over Skype. Sarah and Kyle wrestle with the difficult, heartbreaking, frustrating and often hilarious realities of the fractured existence we are currently living through and the blind nature of stumbling through it without an end date in sight.

    Travelling Film Festival Alice Springs

    Feb 26th - Mar 1st 2021

    MEDIA RELEASE - JANUARY 2020 YES, THIS FEBRUARY TRAVELLING FILM FESTIVAL RETURNS TO ALICE SPRINGS WITH THE WORLD’S BEST CINEMA! Travelling Film Festival (TFF), the regional tour of Sydney Film Festival, will return to Alice Springs from 26 Feb—1 March 2021 at Alice Springs Cinema. The program will showcase eight acclaimed feature films, two superb documentaries and four exceptional Australian short films, direct from last year’s Sydney Film Festival and other major international festivals. “Against all odds, with such strange times and resulting cancellations of some of our other regional festivals last year, we are thrilled to continue our 2021 tour in the Territory with Alice Springs this February! Patrons will get to watch on the big screen the local premieres of all the extraordinary films on our program, from Australian and international talents. We hope you enjoy the program and wish you a safe and fun Festival.” Said Sanam Rodrigues, Travelling Film Festival Manager. Headlining the programme is Firestarter: The Story of Bangarra, the brand new Australian documentary that explores the rise of a small Australian company to a world renowned cultural powerhouse complete with specially curated dance sequences that Bangarra is famous for. Other stories from around the globe include: Poland’s Oscar nominee for Best International Film Corpus Christi; Lunana: A Yak in the Classroom, direct from Berlinale 2020, this gem from Bhutan was beautifully shot in the high-altitude peaks of the Himalayas; a cinematic gem from the Toronto Film Festival, Kuessipan, is a poignant coming-of-age story of two girls from a rural Quebec Innu community; award winning French film, Only the Animals, by director Dominik Moll, is a must- watch engrossing, mystery thriller; plus The Perfect Candidate, directed by Saudi Arabia’s first female director Haifaa Al-Mansour, is a revealing look at the changing role of women in Saudi Arabia. Also included in the program is The Climb - witty and smart, this hilarious prize-winning buddy comedy follows two bickering best friends as they drag themselves painfully through adulthood; the documentary Ottolenghi and the Cakes of Versailles, a dazzling ode to history, art and the decadence of the dessert; Director Thomas Vinterberg’s award winning film Another Round features the superb Mads Mikkelsen (The Hunt, Hannibal) in a tragicomedy combining science, alcohol and midlife defiance; and to round off the program, Charlatan, following Jan Mikolášek, a towering figure of Czech history, whose life is intertwined with significant events in history. This year TFF is also proud to present an extraordinary Australian short film selection, including Ayaan, a Sydney Film Festival 2020 finalist, and the Screenability initiative, showcasing provocative cinema by filmmakers with disability with Diving In, Safety Net and Groundhog Night. Tickets to TFF Alice Springs are now on sale. With a Flexipass and Full Subscription patrons can watch the whole program and save up to 30%. Capacity is strictly limited.

    Kate Ceberano - Up Close and Personal

    Mar 3rd 2021, 8:00pm - 10:00pm

    Presented by Araluen Arts Centre and HIT Productions All the hits! Fronting pop funk band ‘I’m Talking’, Kate notched up 5 consecutive hit singles and a Platinum debut album. The year was 1986 and Michael Hutchence from INXS won Most Popular Male Artist and Kate won Most Popular Female Artist at the Countdown Awards. Kate has barely drawn breath since, racking up 28 albums over 35 years whilst effortlessly moving around genres. With 3 x ARIA awards and 7 nominations for Best Female Artist, and dozens of other major awards, Kate is Australian entertainment royalty. She has starred in seminal productions of Jesus Christ Superstar and South Pacific, had her own tonight show Kate & Friends (ABC TV), won Dancing With The Stars, was first woman inducted in Australian Songwriters Association (ASA) Hall of Fame, curated 3 record breaking years of the Adelaide Cabaret Festival just to name a few of her milestones. SWEET INSPIRATION - Kate’s latest album is OUT NOW. “Kate came on stage, handling a keyboard and a percussion skin, with only a guitarist by her side. But my, what a guitarist Ben Butler has lived in America since the 90s and has worked with Bruce Springsteen and toured with Sting. Even though this was their first gig together, there was a natural connection, a real spark. They even tackled a brace of Sting songs – Roxanne, Can’t Stand Losing You, Fields of Gold – to the audience’s delight. Kate knew how to please, with renditions of Bedroom Eyes, Pash, Brave and I Don’t Know How To Love Him, which she dedicated to our mutual friend Sir Tim Rice. She concluded with a fabulous new song, Hold On, which, like the new album Sweet Inspiration, she wrote during lockdown.” Glenn A Baker

    From Australia: An Accumulation Exhibition Opening

    Mar 5th 2021, 6:00pm - 9:00pm

    From Australia: An Accumulation is an imagining of Australian nationalism made through drawing, printmaking, community-engaged workshops, publications and exhibitions. ~ The project uses the print portfolios produced at the time of the Australian Bicentennial in 1988 as a launching off point. Specifically ‘Aus Australien’, published by Rene Block, and the ‘Bicentennial Portfolio of 25 Australian artists’, published by the Australian Bicentennial Commission. Both have become celebrated time capsules of Australian art and identity. At 2020 and the 250th Anniversary of the Pacific voyages of Captain James Cook, it is essential to revisit what ‘from Australia’ looks like now. Recently there has been a much needed re-evaluation of Australian history and the legacies of colonialism, and the ways this can be addressed through artwork. From Australia builds from this work and extends the trajectory of historical printmaking portfolios by creating an ongoing, inclusive and reflexive examination of collective Australian identity. The project is ongoing. As part of the broader project, the exhibition at Watch This Space (WTS) presents portfolio works by Robert Fielding, Chips Mackinolty and Alison Alder, and a selection of artwork contributions made during workshops across Australia, including at WTS in 2021 and Mimili Maku Arts in 2019 and 2021.
