welcome to season 2012

At heart, I see theatre as a series of conversations. Wide-ranging and often colour-saturated conversations that test and expand our vocabularies and give our humanity a thorough workout. The Wild Duck is a conversation about loyalty, about families, about past choices that are capable of devouring our future. This awardwinning production brings Ewen Leslie back to the Merlyn with an amazing cast that includes Toby Schmitz and Anita Hegh. Blood Wedding riffs on these themes, but also celebrates language, culture and our place in the world. Icon of Spanish theatre and film, Mariola Fuentes, leads a multi-lingual Australian cast through Lorca's great story. Pompeii, L.A., a brand new play by Melbourne writer Declan Greene, shows us a world on the verge of an apocalypse, through the eyes of a child star. It's a funny, if scarifying, reflection of our vanity and self-obsession.

2012 at Malthouse Theatre is the year of change. The building is pulsing with the energy of a new blend of people, ideas are galvanising artists and igniting our collective imagination. Firstly, join us for an entire year of great works: we are declaring our hand upfront, proud of the amazing breadth of productions on offer and confident that you will want to come on board for the full journey. We mix what we do well with some brand new experiences. From the reworking of classical texts like the Oedipus myth and the celebration of much loved performers like Bille Brown and Paul Capsis to companies and genres rarely seen at Malthouse Theatre: the contemporary circus company Circa is perhaps one of Australia's most successful international exports having played to full houses across the globe. Windmill Theatre coaxes our shorter patrons into the building, ideally with their parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and friends for the modern family's Pinocchio. This production resounds with what we all want for children – to be able to grow up with a suite of engaging conversations about the world.

OPERA XS punctuates the mid-point of our season. We empty the Beckett, fill it with comfy sofas and cuddle up around the winter solstice with some mulled wine and custom-made opera. Music by Purcell in the re-working of Rawcus and Chamber Made's Another Lament, a work in progress by Deborah Cheetham and her company Short Black Opera Company, perhaps some oneon-one madrigals, an open-mike night and a few improvised operas led by one of our favourite and most charismatic conductors, Victorian Opera's Richard Gill.

These conversations rely hugely on the calibre of those participating. The Malthouse is consistently fuelled by Melbourne's independent artists and the small to medium companies that account for much of the cultural excitement that happens in Australia: artists like Raimondo Cortese, Daniel Schlusser, Marg Horwell, Declan Greene, Jane Montgomery Griffiths, The Sisters Hayes and our wonderful Company in Residence, Four Larks. Add to these the international and national talents of Tina C, of choreographer Vicki Van Hout and we have a fantastic offer for you. These are all theatre makers with the dynamism and imagination to conjure a fresh and unique perspective on the world we live in. There are generally two sorts of audience members – those who lean forward and those who lean back. Our audiences love Malthouse Theatre because it invites them to lean forward in their seats; they are adventurous and engaged and are interested in the big picture. Our job is to keep your emotions alive and your arms uncrossed, to meet you at the invisible line. We take that contract very seriously. I hope you'll enjoy 2012 as much as we will.

Are there some truths it’s better not to know? Winner of three Helpmann Awards (2011), including Best Play, this taut, stripped-back rendition of a modern classic never lets up. Director Simon Stone has developed from a wunderkind of Melbourne’s indie theatre to an established force on Australia’s mainstages. Here he transplants Ibsen’s characters into the contemporary world in a new play tailor-made for an astonishing cast led by Ewen Leslie. Hjalmar Ekdal grew up rich but scandal cast him into poverty. Now he lives in a tiny flat with his father, his wife, his daughter and a duck. When his old friend Gregers Werle returns with unfinished business, the truth Gregers brings could shatter the world Hjalmar has built around himself. A bittersweet portrait of family dysfunction, deception and denial, The Wild Duck resounds for a new age.

Tina C Solves the Aboriginal Crisis

Beckett Theatre 21 MARCH – 8 APRIL Photo Magnus Hastings Pictured Tina C

Who's this Tina C telling us there's a crisis? Country music celebrity, US presidential candidate and now global icon for peace, Tina C is on an Australasian mission. "I know there is tension in your land about the relationship between the non-Aboriginal and Aboriginal people. I know it goes back a long way and I wanna help through the healing power of country music." Tina C’s unique mix of insightful thought, politics, comedy and catchy songs like ‘You Built A Rabbit Proof Fence Around My Heart’ will make you look at this issue through new eyes, regardless of your background. Tax your brain, break your heart, laugh at things you never thought you were allowed to, and leave with a spirit of resounding optimism! After all, how bad can anything be when singing along to ‘A Pub With No Beer’?

“…one of the great comic creations of the age.” Stephen Fry

Merlyn Theatre 2 APRIL – 5 MAY The Histrionic is proudly supported by Sofitel Melbourne on Collins Photo Garth Oriander Pictured Bille Brown

Hell hath no fury like an actor ignored... Meet Bruscon: national treasure, intellect nonpareil, and finest living actor to grace the stage. But what happens when a talent that knows no bounds is dropped into a tiny hamlet more notable for the number of local pigs than its appreciation of the theatre? Playwright Thomas Bernhard, himself a relentless self-mythologiser and one of the great writers of the twentieth century, takes no prisoners in this rampage of satire on art, celebrity and the cult of personality. In Bruscon is crystallised the artist whose head won’t fit through doors — an ego that has outgrown reality itself. But beneath the wit lies the profound concern about how such monsters are created, and why their excesses provide us with an endless, grotesque fascination even while we abhor them. Director Daniel Schlusser shapes this wry drama around the protean genius of Bille Brown while the inimitable Barry Otto’s beleaguered innkeeper attempts to meet Bruscon's absurd demands.

"And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music." Nietzsche

The phenomenon of dancing mania has left a mysterious trail through history – entire communities infected with a spontaneous urge to dance until they literally drop. It's suicide with a backbeat, but what's behind these lethal outbreaks? The devil's drumming or religious ecstasy? Neurological decay or otherworldly arrival? A riot of motion and mayhem that spans from medieval rites to modern day marathons of mass movement, The Plague Dances is a dance of death with a contagious undercurrent. Four Larks has emerged as one of the country's most dynamic new ensembles. In the most unexpected locations, they have created a series of transformative junkyard operas that blend lush visual assemblages with mesmerising original live scores. As Malthouse Theatre's 2012 Company in Residence, Four Larks will have the opportunity to captivate new audiences with their unique brand of theatre. Clear your dance card.

Throughout history the circus in all of its forms has returned obsessively, incessantly, to the strangest and most mystifying animal of all: the human. Now, Australia's world-famously inventive and intelligent proponent of the form is presented by Malthouse Theatre in a performance that stretches the limits of what bodies can be. Provocative, affecting and always unexpected, CIRCA dispenses with the hoopla and cuts straight to the quick. KEEP UP! Mind-bending aerial displays, unfettered acrobatics and the slap and shudder of bodies pushed to extremes — all there, but this is no mindless diversion. Dragging the language of traditional circus arts kicking and screaming into the relentless throb of the twenty-first century, Circa creates spectacle that somehow speaks to something deeper: our need for connection, our fears of failure and hopes for triumph, and to the spaces we inevitably share.

Over the Queen's Birthday Weekend, four companies perform operatic productions of intimate proportions during a four-day frenzy. With only 70 seats for each performance, move quickly to get in on this one. beckett Theatre 6 – 11 JUNE

“...a beautiful, funny and profoundly moving show – an affirmation that desire, and the joy and suffering it brings, belongs to everyone.” The Age on Another Lament

“A company intent on returning opera to the people” Sunday Herald Sun on Victorian Opera

Another Lament is now on sale exclusively to subscribers. Include it in your subcription package and you'll be the first in line when other OPERA XS events go on sale. Another Lament by Chamber Made Opera and Rawcus Chamber Made Opera and Rawcus extend boundaries in all the work they do. Together they reprise their 2010 production Another Lament, directed by Kate Sulan. Originally presented in a private living room, this beautiful improvisation on Henry Purcell’s music will see the Beckett Theatre transformed into a kind of living room. Redfern by Short Black Opera Company In December 1992, Australian Prime Minister Paul Keating delivered a speech which is as powerful today as it was in the humble surroundings of Redfern Park 20 years ago. Redfern, a song cycle by Deborah Cheetham in celebration of that landmark address, will be presented as a work in progress by Short Black Opera Company. Opera Shorts by Victorian Opera Victorian Opera last joined forces with us for the giant smash hit The Threepenny Opera. This time it’s a program of short, new Australian works… and look out for MC Richard Gill headlining an operatic open mike (not that they’ll need one).

Merlyn Theatre 4 – 14 JULY

In Yolngu painting, bir'yun describes the brilliance, shimmer and shine of a pattern that seems to move before the eyes, animated by the essence of ancestral forces. This is the inspiration for Vicki Van Hout's Briwyant, a work of choreographic dexterity and interdisciplinary innovation that brings to the stage an experience both ageless and fleeting; a moment of connection. Dance, dynamic projections and a layered, textured soundscape will transport audiences well beyond the confines of the theatre into a realm of literal and figurative stories. With precision and a wholly original vision of Indigenous dance, Van Hout evokes, with compelling conviction, a future for the form that teams humour, history and raw physicality.

wedding

Married life is a killer. In this remarkable bilingual production directed by Marion Potts, the lush lyricism of Federico García Lorca's writing is wedded to a contemporary sensibility utterly of the now. Devastating romance, a clash between desire and tradition, a rich paean to the Spanish soil and its culture of passion and ritual — Lorca’s tour de force is all of these things. Here, with music by Tim Rogers, and a cast of actors from across the globe, Blood Wedding will speak afresh of love’s impossible magnetism, with the rhythms and poetry of Spanish as the refrains to which this timeless drama insistently returns.

Beckett Theatre 10 – 26 AUGUST Co-produced with Perth Theatre Company Photo Garth Oriander Pictured Richard Pyros and Natasha Herbert

We know how the Oedipus story ends: he murders his father and unwittingly marries his mother. But where did this shattering tragedy begin? On the Misconception of Oedipus turns its eye to Jocasta and Laius, the parents who birthed a child that would bring about their downfall, and in so doing brought into the world more than a man — they created a myth. Can we really say what Oedipus’ crime was? Attempting to recreate the true turn of events may actually be an impossible task, as memories lie, and unseen forces (call it science or blame it on the gods) will always shape our destiny. This unprecedented take on one of history’s most enduring legends, is a theatrically fearless and unexpected excavation into the murky love that built a tragedy.

angela's kitchen

By Paul Capsis and Julian Meyrick Directed by Julian Meyrick Associate Writer Hilary Bell Design Louise McCarthy Lighting Design Verity Hampson Sound Design Alister Spence Audio-Visual Design Steve Toulmin Performed by Paul Capsis

Beckett Theatre 4 – 23 SEPTEMBER Photo Garth Oriander Pictured Paul Capsis

A journey that begins at a kitchen table plunges into a sprawling family history and a fitting tribute to a much-loved matriarch. In 1948, Angela left Malta. Having gathered up five children, she sailed out, leaving poverty and war behind. Her destination: Australia. Told simply and truthfully, Angela’s Kitchen is a revealing and evocative piece of autobiographical theatre from Paul Capsis. By turns hilarious and deeply moving, the life of one of our most versatile performers and the love that inspired him unfolds with a stirring grace. Paul’s supporting cast is the wealth of experience that an enormous family gave him, its dozens of members as complex and flawed as any creation of literature. Drenching it all is Angela’s love, the grandmother whose strength and fragility will resonate like the finest of arias, and whose journey came to echo the voyage of the twentieth century in miniature. A life lived in a kitchen, but one which reaches far beyond.

"…a beautifully simple migration–and–return story, told superbly by Paul Capsis..." The Australian

PINOCCHIO

Directed and Created by Rosemary Myers with Writer Julianne O’Brien Movement by Carol Wellman Kelly Design Jonathon Oxlade Video Design Chris More Lighting Design Geoff Cobham Composition and Musical Direction by Jethro Woodward Performed by Danielle Catanzariti Jude Henshall Derek Lynch Nathan O’Keefe Geoff Revell Alirio Zavarce Based on the books by Carlo Collodi

Once there was a lonely man with lots of love to give. He wanted a child so much that he carved himself a beautiful little boy. But the boy wanted the world and the latest designer sneakers. He wanted fame, celebrity and to walk on the wild side. He was lured by temptation and the love of a blue girl. This woodenhead wanted more than his father could possibly give, and so he ran away to get it. This is his story. Based on the classic tale by Carlo Collodi and from the team that brought you the six-time Helpmann Award nominated Wizard of Oz (2009), Pinocchio is boldly retold as a witty, gothic, rocking, music theatre spectacular; a mix of old time theatre fun and a celebration of the ‘whatever’ generation.

wild surmise

Based on the verse novel by Dorothy Porter Devised by Jane Montgomery Griffiths Directed by Marion Potts Composition and Sound Design Jethro Woodward Lighting Design Paul Jackson Performed by Humphrey Bower Jane Montgomery Griffiths

BECKETT THEATRE 9 November – 2 December Photo Garth Oriander Pictured Jane Montgomery Griffiths

Alex searches for life on a distant moon; Daniel begs an answer of the poets they cannot provide. And while attentions are elsewhere, a marriage melts into memory. Dorothy Porter's verse novel shifts from the vastness of space to the minute gaps between us. Love may come undone, but like light from a long-dead star its radiance can continue to move us. The late Porter is such a light, still illuminating Australia's literary landscape. Wild Surmise is a conversation, and it is its maker's inimitable voice ringing out among the many, both real and imagined, that chorus in this evocative work. Marion Potts and Jane Montgomery Griffiths last worked together on 2010’s Sappho... in 9 Fragments. They now realise this essentially Melbourne epic, in a work that reminds us that great poetry is not a thing, but an action.

l.a.

Los Angeles is burning. And he's enjoying the view. Take a seat next to that child star. You know the one. Used-up, spat-out, stuck on the fast-track to selfdestruction. But now he's tearing the whole world down with him. Declan Greene, one of this generation's most electric playwrights, creates a schizoid eulogy for the American empire, where personal psychology is blurred with the world of the silver screen. Los Angeles is erupting, a damaged young mind scrambles for an escape route and Judy Garland is guiding the way. Director Matthew Lutton transforms this febrile feat of imagination into a series of spectacular acts that refuse all categorisation, creating a hilarious plummet into the anxieties and hysteria of a culture that is turning itself inside out.

Saturday 8 December

Decadence and dilettantism rule at our endof-year summer soirée: LA style. For one sweet afternoon on the final weekend of season closer Pompeii, L.A., Malthouse will crank smooth sounds, lots of work, chic acts, fake tans and all the pretension we can muster.

Have you noticed how much dance is obsessed with birds? How do different choreographers draw their inspiration from our feathered friends and what is behind the ongoing fascination? Drawing on the talents of Australian dancers, choreographers and the odd ornithologist, join us as we explore why dance is so clucky.

As Marion pointed out in her introduction to 2012, Malthouse audiences are the ones who sit forward. Maybe it’s because we think of more ways to pique your curiosity.

FIESTA DE LA TARDE Saturday 18 August

As well as the sessions above, we will contact you during the year with details of more Limited Editions, so make sure we have your email address (there’s a space to provide it on your subscription form) so you don’t miss out on a single special thing.

To celebrate Blood Wedding, we’re throwing a Spanish fiesta. Enjoy a special Lorca inspired afternoon of passion, music, laughter and that amazing clapping thing that only the Spanish can do. With Roma songs, Lorca poetry, flamenco, tapas (not to mention the sangria), it will be a Spanish fiesta not to be missed.

Helium represents Malthouse Theatre’s dedication to facilitating new work by our colleagues and peers. From August to November, the Tower Theatre will be filled with… Helium: a season of new works produced by independent artists.

The Helium season will be announced in May 2012. Malthouse Theatre subscribers will be offered a priority booking period. We’re just as excited as you are. For more information email helium@malthousetheatre.com.au

Helium provides a pathway for artists and ensembles to present their work in an established contemporary performance venue. It is the first time we have done this as a structured season, and it is recognition of the profound influence of Australia’s independent scene on Malthouse Theatre’s own evolution.

the engine room Propelling the ongoing work of Malthouse Theatre is the Engine Room — our annual commitment to the development of new work.

Malthouse Theatre's Engine Room provides a time and place for creative possibilities. Marion and the Artistic Associates together with independent artists in all genres are quarantining two months of their year for the development of new work to build a future repertoire. In the Engine Room, we start working on a project from its conception — a writer has an idea, a designer sees an image, a director has a hunch. From seeds like these, an incalculable number of possibilities can grow. And the Engine Room provides an opportunity to investigate the best of these, using the skills, instincts and insights of our senior artists together with the finest collaborators. 2012's production of Blood Wedding came from this process and some subscribers were present at our test of the idea in 2011. The results may not be seen immediately and that is half the joy — the slow simmering of ideas can elicit richer, deeper understandings and outcomes.
