PUBLIC ART LIKE YOU’VE NEVER SEEN IT BEFORE!

PUBLIC PROGRAMS 14

Textile artist TAL FITZPATRICK and local crafters respond to the history of JULIE COOPER, who paved the way for women to enter local politics. Julie was elected Moorabbin City’s first female Councillor in 1976 then first female Mayor in 1982. A stadium named in her honour continues to be a point of contention.

By 1980, PHIL CARMAN was one of the VFL’s most awarded players. He was also frequently reported for bad behaviour. Video artist LARESA KOSLOFF and local performers explore the infamous head-butting incident between Phil Carman and umpire Graeme Carberry on Moorabbin Oval, which resulted in a year-long suspension and the end of his football career.

In 1978, FRED VALENTICH took off from Moorabbin Airport. Within minutes, he radioed sightings of a metallic object hovering above him before transmission abruptly ceased. Valentich and his plane were never seen again. Art collective FIELD THEORY and local volunteers explore the many mysteries surrounding his disappearance.


the stories! Six Moments in Kingston will feature the works of Tal Fitzpatrick, Laresa Kosloff, Shane McGrath, Spiros Panigirakis, Steven Rhall and Field Theory, curated by Dr David Cross and Dr Cameron Bishop. Each of these Australian contemporary artists will be exploring extraordinary stories from Kingston’s history.

RICK SPRINGFIELD, a Parkdale local, released his hit single, Jessie’s Girl in 1981. The song topped the charts worldwide, climbing to No.1 in the U.S.A. and Australia. Artist SHANE McGRATH and local musicians honour Springfield’s place in the rock pantheon, bringing the song back to life in the streets of Parkdale.

The image of MOORABBIN as a sleepy suburb in the late 1970s and early 80s disguises a politically charged population actively participating in international protest movements. Multidisciplinary artist STEVE RHALL, local performers and visual artists pay homage to the passion and protests of Kingston locals in this tumultuous period.

VISIT SMIK.MELBOURNE TO WATCH THE PROJECT DEVELOP AND FIND OUT MORE!

PUBLIC PROGRAMS

Local Moorabbin sculptor SPIROS PANIGIRAKIS seeks to reveal the many histories of THE GRANGE, a homestead built on the Nepean Highway in the late 1800s that was controversially demolished in 1983 and replaced with the Moorabbin Police Station.

PERFORMANCE 20

In this hallucinatory review of her life, Nancy’s story unfolds with humour and pathos. What happened in France during the Second World War changed her forever, but this time no-one is messing with Nancy’s story, and she tells it with trademark

roguishness – with a little help from her comrades in France, including a mysterious German spy and cabaret singer who performs Marlene Dietrich’s most beloved songs.


War hero, survivor, spy… Nancy Wake doesn’t want another layer of gold paint added to the legend of ‘The White Mouse’. But was the price she paid for survival too high?

A play inspired by Nancy Wake AKA The White Mouse

Swansong WRITTEN BY CONOR MACDERMOTTROE. PRESENTED BY RAV & RED HOT PRODUCTIONS

PERFORMANCE 24


Returning to Australia after a triumphant US tour in 2018, don’t miss this moving, inspirational and brilliantly performed play, featuring rising star of Australian stage and screen Andre de Vanny.

Swansong is the story of a hero abused by the system at every step. But this troubled soul will never give up. Meet Occi Byrne, the illegitimate child of a single mother from the west of Ireland. Shunned by Church, state and family, Occi must fight his way to adulthood in a dog-eat-dog world. But this troubled soul is not one to ever give up. By turns moving and inspiring, Swansong is theatre at its finest. Not to be missed.

Date/Time:

“Swansong is a mighty ‘tour de force’ featuring an indisputable talent and his boundless energy and commitment. What de Vanny brings to the stage is faultlessly executed.”
