Bambert's Book Of Lost Stories

Description

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.

Of Kings and Queens

Description

An inspiring concert of English music for royalty. Handels thrilling Coronation Anthems will dominate the programme including the stirring Zadok the Priest, an anthem performed at every coronation since its premiere at the coronation of King George II in 1727.  Written with the full splendour of a coronation in mind the orchestration is exciting with the exhilarating full textures of the chorus reinforced by scintillating trumpets and timpani.  It takes very little imagination to be there in Westminster Abbey side by side with royalty and the elite of the landed gentry!   

Other works for royalty will include Coronation trumpet fanfares, The Arrival of the Queen of Sheba played by wunderkind organist Alessandro Pittorino, and works written by amateur composer Henry VIII, including the perennial Greensleeves arranged for 8 part unaccompanied choir, as well as elegant dance music from his royal court.  

 

Come join Perth Symphonic Chorus and conductor Dr Margaret Pride OAM in the majestic surrounds of Winthrop Hall for its first post-Covid-19 lockdown concert. Indulge in a little royal fantasy, and let the music take you to an era of spectacle, glamour and awe.  

 

Tickets are $23 to $53 and are available at https://ticketswa.com/ofkingsandqueens or call 6488 2440.

The annual Here & Now exhibition showcases some of the most exciting and innovative work in WA, curated each year by an emerging curator appointed to offer fresh perspective and insight on contemporary art practice.

This year Brent Harrison examines how artists draw on histories and their own lived experiences to create artworks that reflect on what it means to be queer. The artists in Here & Now 20 use their work as a means to problematise binaries, to explore sites of desire and to provide safe spaces for communities. The exhibition aims to dismantle dominant heteronormative narratives by encouraging intergenerational dialogues that highlight the continued resistance of queer culture.
