Theatre: Death Throes

30 Apr – 18 May @ The Blue Room Theatre ·
Presented by Gillies, Croft and Lui ·

The end is nigh #posttruthbaby
Welcome to the end. Post truth, baby. Post fact, post power, post CD-ROM. Performed by three over excited artists who may (or may not) be authorities on power but are definitely authorities on Britney, Death Throes rips apart and reimagines humanity’s desire to tell and believe in myths.

Setting ablaze the oppressive ideas, stories and images of our world in an attempt to topple the pyramid of hierarchical power under its own weight. We’re disintegrating the grand narratives of history in an orgy of gleeful destruction, and starting again from scratch baby.

A perverse performance party inside the void, brought to you by the iconoclastic minds of Julia Croft, Harriet Gillies, and Joe Lui.

Film: 2019 Moro Spanish Film Festival Opening Night Fiesta Perth

24 April @ Cinema Paradiso, Northbridge ·
Presented by Palace Cinemas ·

The Moro Spanish Film Festival opens on April 24 with Champions, the critically acclaimed feel good film that smashed box office records in Spain last year!

Opening the festival on April 24 will be the Best Film winner at the Goya Awards (Spanish Oscars) Champions (Campeones).  This film, by Javier Fesser stars Javier Gutiérrez as Marco, an ambitious and arrogant basketball coach forced to train a team of people with disabilities. Touted as a “comedic slam dunk” by The Hollywood Reporter, Spain’s exuberant 2019 foreign language Oscars entry is the ultimate feel-good film that will leave audiences grinning from ear to ear.

The Opening Night Fiesta includes Sangria on arrival and the premiere screening, followed by an afterparty at Connections Nightclub with drinks, catering by Pinchos and live entertainment by Jere Sosa.

Dance: Within

26 April @ Broadwalk Theatre, Mandurah Performing
Arts Centre ·
Presented by Iridescence Dance Company ·

Within – a double-bill ballet. Internal landscape versus the outer persona. An experience in ballet, music, spoken-word and aerial. Fire Within. Inspired by the saying “Sky above me, Earth beneath me, Fire within me”, the narrative focuses on Beatrice’s walk outside and her reveries. Does she have cause for happiness?

Shakti. Three women, each in different cultures, each with different societal expectations. Within the bundle of twine-bound journals found in the effects of her beloved and recently departed aunty, the lives of Cataline, Atiya and Danielle are revealed to Sarah.

Aerial art explores each woman’s internal landscape; ballet explores the external actions of the woman. Vocalization of the inner monologue of each character shows the moments of internal and external congruency/conflict.

Within is a ballet imbued with meaning, but remains a visual and aural delight that has the flavour of a classic ballet, in a modern context.

Music: Introducing TVQ: Album Launch

23 April @ The Ellington Jazz Club ·
Presented by Tim Voutas Quartet ·

TVQ’s (Tim Voutas Quartet) sound is energetic and new, with intricate melodies and rhythms that keep you guessing. The compositions can be fun and cheeky while at the same time take you on a journey through a wave of emotions. This project started in 2016 as an outlet for creativity and since then has grown to create its first album “Introducing TVQ.” TVQ draws upon influences spanning Bill Evan’s harmonic lushness, Art Blakey’s fire, Hiromi Uehara’s flare and Keith Jarrett’s emotion.

Join us to celebrate the launch of “Introducing TVQ” which is sure to be a night not to be forgotten.

Ricki Malet: Trumpet
Tim Voutas: Piano
Alistair Peel: Double Bass
Ryan Daunt: Drums

Based in Perth, Tim Voutas’s piano playing is energetic and colourful. His early classical piano playing got him into music and then luckily steered him towards Jazz. He graduated the GIJ academy big band in 2013  and WAAPA in 2017. From there he has been performing around Perth in his own groups “TVQ” (Tim Voutas Quartet)  and “The Island Trio.” He is also a member of the Perth Cabaret Collective.
