Djuki Mala wow audiences with a spectacular fusion of traditional dance, pop-culture and storytelling that is a marvel of timing, comedy and clowning with a hefty dose of heart and soul!
Djuki Mala performer Baykali Ganambarr says: “Our show tells the genesis of Djuki Mala, in a way that challenges the western anthropological view of First Nations culture. We do this with our humor, our dance, our story and our culture. It’s alive, it’s living, breathing, ever changing and evolving. Rooted in over 75,000 years of ancestral knowledge. We take our culture out of the museum and place it very firmly in the 21st century – with a bit of circus and bling!”

“This is the most exciting and ambitious program that SWE has ever put together,” says WAAPA’s Head of Woodwind and Spooktacular music director, Philip Everall. “We can’t wait to get into the Perth Concert Hall – it’s going to be a hoot!”

Tucked away in his quiet attic, his only companions are the characters he has created in his stories. And then one day, Bambert decides to set his stories free, to send them out into the world on little balloons in the hope that they will find a home.

The stories contain instructions: whoever finds them should return them to Bambert, postmarked with a stamp from wherever they landed, so he knows where they should be set. But as each day passes and no stories return, Bambert’s hope begins to fade. Will his stories ever find a home?

Since its premiere in 2016 Bambert’s Book of Lost Stories has charmed audiences across the country and around the globe. This special return season of our Helpmann Award winning production brings Bambert home to Perth once more.

A reminder of how stories connect us to the world and ultimately, the power of kindness.

Description

A leading Summer event in Paris for the past 30 years, this iconic and secret affair is now renowned across the world. Starting in Paris in 1988, Francois Pasquier decided to organise a picnic for his friends asking them to dress in all white to easily recognise one another. Now, Diner en Blanc is held in 77 cities in over 23 countries with more than 120,000 annual guests.

To uphold the Diner en Blanc tradition, guests are asked to wear head-to-toe white attire and bring their own portable tables, white chairs, white table linens, tableware, and gourmet meals (you can also pre-purchase a gourmet picnic). Over the course of the evening thousands of chic picnic-goers will eat and celebrate amid music, entertainment and dancing.

The evening is filled with eye-catching selfie opportunities and visually breathtaking moments including the traditional group waving of a white cloth napkin at sunset (to mark the commencement of dinner) and the lighting of thousands of sparklers (to initiate dancing and mingling). At the end of the evening when the trumpet sounds guests will pack up all of their belongings and depart, leaving behind no sign of their elegant revelry.

As always, the location is 100% secret for the approx. 3000 attending, and will be until the day of the event. All guests will meet at a secret gathering point before the Le Diner en Blanc volunteers guide attendees to the secret dinner location to converge on a magnificent event setting. To secure a place at the Diner en Blanc, those who are not members and leaders friends as well as sponsored guests, must join the waiting list.

Description

THE magic of Cinderella will cast a spell on you this October as the Wembley Theatre Company brings the classic fairytale to life as a pantomime.

Written by Tony Nicholls and directed by Bryce Manning, the show takes the traditional story and mixes in a range of extraordinary characters including a stepmother full of malapropisms and an unlikely fairy godmother.

Thrown into the mix is a range of jokes, slapstick, puns, songs and laughter as Cinderella journeys from her downtrodden existence to princess life.

“Tony Nicholls’ pantomimes never stray far from the expected plot structure we’re all familiar with,” Bryce said.

“While we know we are watching Cinderella, Tony includes sub-plots, sub-sub-plots, songs and a myriad of characters that make us laugh and cry – but never distract from what we all know will happen.

“The challenge for a theatre director is to find a heartbeat in the script.

“It normally takes four or five rehearsals before the cast is clear and confident with the direction I am taking them.

“It’s then they take ownership of their characters and the play and each actor starts the process of playing a part in this living, breathing thing called theatre.”

Involved in acting, directing and theatre teaching since 1984, Bryce trained as an actor at the University of Western Sydney before moving back to Perth to start his teaching career.

He formed the Wembley Theatre Company in 1996 and has been producing, directing, writing and acting in the company’s annual productions for the past 24 years.

The company has seven pantomimes it performs in rotation and last staged Cinderella in 2014.

“This year’s production will be vastly improved,” Bryce said. “We have new LED lights, stage microphones, stunning new costumes and an impressive smoke machine.”

Cinderella plays at 7pm October 16, 23 and 30 and 2pm October 17, 18, 24, 25, 31 and November 1. Tickets are $17, $12 concession – book at www.trybooking.com/BLKAD.

The pantomime is showing at the Wembley Community Centre, 40 Alexander Street, Wembley.

A View From The Park

  • Dates:Oct 23, 24, 25, 29, 30, 31

  • Ticket Price:$20
  • Performing Arts:Theatre
  • Type:Community

Description

A PARK bench is the basis of six very different short plays at the Old Mill Theatre this October.

Written and directed by Perth playwright Noel O’Neill, each play features two actors and is presented by Maverick Theatre Productions under the umbrella title A View from the Park.

Passion Play is a comedy about an egotistical, lecherous theatre director who has walked out of auditions for an Easter play about the crucifixion and his agent trying to reason with him.

It’s followed by Daddy’s Little Girl where a dominating father insists on orchestrating his daughter’s wedding – but, underneath, it’s about him not being able to let her go.

In Rules of Engagement, a man (played by O’Neill) is about to propose marriage after receiving some advice from his mother but soon realises his bride-to-be carries a lot of emotional baggage.

A superstitious man meets his long-term partner in Sign Right There and she is under the impression he might move in with her, although he has other plans.

Walking Matilda is a twisted tale of betrayal and deception with the revelation of many secrets when two friends meet.

Rounding out the set is One For Sorrow, featuring two lifelong friends – one is gravely ill and the other has neglected the friendship, so he tries to heal the wounds by lending a hand.

“I like the idea of the park bench because I consider it ‘middle ground’,” O’Neill said.

“It’s not ‘your place’ or ‘my place’ but a free atmosphere where people can either solve their differences or walk away from them.

“I always consider the bench itself to be a character that brings people together in conversation while exposing little pieces of what’s going on inside.”

The main challenge, according to O’Neill, is how to make each play interesting.

“It’s not so much about what the actors are doing but what they are doing to each other with the dialogue,” he said. “That’s where the action really is.

“I try to inject a little comedy into drama and a little drama into comedy because I always feel life is like that.”

Born in Ireland, O’Neill moved to New York in his late teens and appeared in many off-Broadway productions before moving to Perth more than 20 years ago, clocking up numerous awards for writing and directing.

He has previously worked as a lecturer at the WA Academy of Performing Arts and Perth Actors’ Collective and is currently appearing as Watto in the ABC-TV series The Heights.

“The appeal of A View From The Park is the fact you have six unknown situations and there’s s a curiosity to that,” O’Neill said.

“When you present a full play, you have one story and can more or less figure out the ending in most cases.

“But with the park bench plays you have six situations and the audience really has no idea of the outcome each time.”

A View from the Park plays at 7.30pm October 23, 24, 25, 29, 30 and 31 with 2pm matinees October 24, 25 and 31. All tickets are $20 – book at www.trybooking.com/BLLMM.  

The heritage-listed Old Mill Theatre is on the corner of Mends Street and Mill Point Road, South Perth (opposite the Windsor Hotel and Australia Post).
