“He danced on the Grand” Entertainer Peter Allen walked, danced and sat on Horsham Town Hall’s $8,500 grand piano Wednesday night. His lithe, athletic frame slipped from the keyboard seat and onto the grand’s gleaming grand’s surface. About 600 people cheered as Allen moved suggestively across the serious grand. Kathy Koning, Wimmera Mail Times, Friday 19 September, 1980 (Exert from the front page)

80 Mayors Message In 2019 the Horsham Town Hall will celebrate it’s 80th year.

The visionary team at the Horsham Town Hall proudly present their fourth season of visual arts, performances and special events for our community and regional audiences. Collectively they have sought work of scale and generosity, work that contests, interprets, and connects us to ideas and challenges of our time; as well as intimate, personal stories that represent equality that are truly magnificent and resonant. I encourage you to meet, play, dance and look again soon at the Horsham Town Hall in 2019. Cr. Pamela Clarke Mayor Horsham Rural City Council Image credit: Michelle McFarlane

EXHIBITION

On a Tangent On a Tangent explores the artistic practice of several contemporary artists and the tangential forces on their work. Some artworks have developed unintentionally through other projects, anecdotal evidence of different intentions or a change of course.

HRAG

Some works are a creative exchange between artists. Others have developed through fleeting, personal encounters or see the possibility of the unremarkable reinvented.

Exploring geometric and philosophical meanings in tangent, visitors are encouraged to go off on their own tangents, to be lead down the garden path.

EXHIBITION

OLIVIA POLONI

In Her Words In Her Words is a photographic exhibition focusing on women behind and in front of the camera. Women who are in control of their own story; whether they are speaking their own truth or reenacting the accounts of others. In this exhibition we hear from women who are bold in the telling of their flaws, uncertainties and strengths; aiming to get to the core of the female experience, rights and challenges.

Image credit: Cherine Fahd Hidden Mother 1, 50 x 50 cm, Archival pigment print 2010/2018, courtesy of the artist. This project has been assisted by NETS Victoria’s Exhibitions Development Fund, supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria.

HRAG

Bringing together historical works from the Horsham Art Gallery collection with key figures in contemporary Australian photographic practice, the exhibition explores migration, queer culture, aboriginality, youth and childhood, the body, domesticity, place, identity and female repressions and expression. Through these images the photographers make bold statements about the societies in which they live and work.

Australian Booty

Candy B knows your pain, she knows the strain of being female and curvaceous with a body made for touching and a booty most bodacious. She understands feeling like your body is wrong and the pants are right, like you have to fight food, magazines, and Australian television…but Candy B says: Don’t believe the hype! A “phat” booty and “phat” thighs (and this is whether you like girls or guys) are beautiful, sensual, loving and hot and its awesome when every single sister gets to love what she’s got.

PERFORMANCE

ONE FELL SWOOP CIRCUS

By a Thread Seven acrobats and 30 metres of rope…

HTH THEATRE

Long spools of white rope run through pulley sheaves and wrap around bodies, explicitly connecting the artists’ movements above and off the ground. Like the booms and sheets of a sailing ship the performers are hoisted and swung by one another to create striking tableaux and breath-taking dynamics. The actions of one acrobat affect and implicate the movements of others in a precise negotiation of cause and effect.

By a Thread offers rich visuals of inventive aerial acrobatics from some of Australia’s best emerging circus artists. With intense training in a breadth of contemporary circus disciplines, the performers have pooled their knowledge and skills, and then exploded the traditional boundaries of these disciplines to create a show where classic techniques are used in expansive ways.

I Want To Know What Love Is throws a spotlight on long-buried memories, bedroom fantasies, crushes and conquests. Acclaimed Queensland performance collective The Good Room asked members of the public to anonymously submit their stories of love – fragments and memories, confessions and admissions – and they’ve transformed those secret submissions into magnificent declarations centre stage.

ESSENTIAL THEATRE AND THREE BIRDS THEATRE

Enter Ophelia In a world of mad men and murdering uncles, Ophelia wanders an empty castle, clutching rotting flowers - told what to do, where to stand, what to think. No one really listens to her, no one really sees her. Enter Ophelia is a darkly funny gothic riff centering Shakespeare’s iconic drowned damsel into the spotlight of Denmark, where Ophelia must question and navigate the darkest corners and secrets of her world in order to take charge of her own fate. Enter Ophelia promises to be a dark and thrilling exploration of femininity, isolation and silliness. Be lured into the heightened and absurd world of Shakespeare’s Denmark.

A Room of One’s Own by Virginia Woolf

In Sentient Theatre’s inaugural piece, we celebrate the beautiful literacy and conceptual genius of Virginia Woolf, one of the greatest writers of the 20th Century, and her classic work, ‘A Room of One’s Own’. Based on a series of lectures by Woolf in 1928 on the subject of women and fiction, this adaptation restructures the narrative to feature four performers who represent

various aspects of Woolf’s mind in conversation with herself and the audience. The piece both energetically debates and gently reflects on the history of gender disparity, while keeping Woolf’s striking use of metaphor and charming humour alive. If you want to understand what is happening in the world today, this is the perfect place to start. Image credit: Frith Kennedy

The exhibition challenges these doubly conventional themes through the work of twenty-two Australian artists whose work reflects the breadth and depth of print practice in Australia today. The artists express their individual relationships to the land through a variety of print media, describing both the vast scale and the intimate detail of our diverse natural environment and portraying Australia’s unique and varied geography.

mining, the common thread running through the exhibition is a deep respect for the land and a desire to continue sharing a meaningful relationship with it. These artists make it clear that in a virtual, digital and mechanical age the need to remain connected to the natural world has never been more urgent.

EXHIBITION

NATIONAL GALLERY OF AUSTRALIA

Art Deco Shaking off the austerity of World War I they created images of an abundant nation filled with strong, youthful figures, capturing the vitalism of a nation reborn. Technological advancements and urbanisation influenced the emergence of Art Deco: a new aesthetic in art, architecture, design and fashion. Comprised entirely of works selected from the National Gallery of Australia collection, this exhibition provides superb examples of the diverse expressions of Art Deco.

With its bold, simplified shapes and emphasis on geometry and line, Art Deco provided the right aesthetic for the times. Buildings lost their decorative embellishments, fashion became less structured and corseted, and women were enjoying greater freedoms, such as the right to vote and to travel unchaperoned. The image of the stylish independent woman became popular in portraiture and graphic design for posters and advertisements. The art also encapsulated the excitement for many people around the potential to travel across continents and internationally.
