NOT TODAY’S Yesterday BY LIMOSANI PROJEKTS

“This is outstanding, innovative, must-see dance.” Peter Burdon, The Advertiser

PERFORMANCE 4

“Not Today’s Yesterday is a poised and thoughtful work and a spectacular performance from a powerful dancer.” Frodo Allan, Broadway Baby

Photo by Stephen Berkeley

An award-winning international collaboration between Australian choreographer Lina Limosani and UK Bharatanatyam artist Seeta Patel, Not Today’s Yesterday blurs the lines between dance and theatre, featuring a poetic narrative with the disquieting beauty of a dark fairy tale. With striking imagery evoking indigenous cultures and colonialism, this one-woman show challenges nostalgic views of history and interrogates our ideas of equality, culture and identity. A provocative, politically pertinent and engaging piece of dance theatre for all audiences that offers hope for a better future. Performance is followed by a curated discussion on the themes and issues raised by the show, with artists, audience and leading thinkers (45mins approx.).


Once upon a time... In a faraway land... It happened... did not happen... could have happened. History is passed on like stories from generation to generation. But what if the story is not what it seems?

“Kingston’s Mighty Wurlitzer is one of the best things about Kingston!” Comment by patron, September 2019

at Kingston City Hall


Kingston Arts celebrates the auspicious 50th anniversary of the famous Wurlitzer with a series of special events. The ever-popular Morning Melodies will return to Kingston City Hall (see pages 12-13), and classic comedy and horror movies will be accompanied live by the Wurlitzer. After all, that’s what it was made for! Read on for full details.

CLASSIC MOVIE SCREENINGS WITH LIVE WURLITZER SATURDAY 9 MAY: The Prophetic Genius of Charlie Chaplin 1pm The Adventurer & The Immigrant Two of Chaplin’s funniest and most socially relevant short films, screened with live Wurlitzer score. The Adventurer features one of the funniest chase scenes in cinematic history, while The Immigrant is as poignant as it is humorous in its depiction of the pitfalls of finding a place in a new world. Screened with live Wurlitzer scores! (48 mins)

2.15pm The Great Dictator Made in response to the rise of the Nazi Party in Germany, The Great Dictator was Chaplin’s first-ever ‘talkie’ and his most commercially successful film. With the rise of populism across the world today, it’s as topical as it was when it was released in 1940. (125 mins) Prizes for the best Charlie Chaplin costume!

FRIDAY 13 NOVEMBER: The Horror, the Horror! 7.30pm Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror The original and best vampire movie of all time, F. W. Murnau’s Nosferatu set the template for all horror films with its eerie atmosphere and truly terrifying vampire-villain. Screened with live Wurlitzer score! (90 mins)

9.15pm The Shining Arguably the scariest movie ever made, Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining is the perfect film for a late-Halloween/Friday the 13th screening. With a few familiar, freaky characters lurking in the shadows at Kingston City Hall, it will be scarier than ever. If you’re lucky, maybe Jack will buy you a drink at the bar? (145 mins) Please note, entry for each program includes all films screened on that date. Tickets:

A production by Christine Harris & HIT Productions

MUSIC 18

“Murray’s ultimate respect for love and marriage and the belief that when people stop growing they die, makes Wallflowering a fascinating and rewarding play.” – The West Australian


HIT Productions returns with a new production of Wallflowering, by awardwinning Australian playwright Peta Murray, a delightfully amusing and poignant story about marriage, happiness and the pursuit of the perfect foxtrot, featuring world-class ballroom dancing. Peg and Cliff Small are an ordinary, suburban, middleaged couple... who once were prize-winning ballroom dancers. Wallflowering traces the evolution of their relationship from its halcyon, dancing days – including younger versions of themselves performing world-class dance routines – to their present-day struggles with adapting to a rapidly changing world.

Date/Time: Tuesday 28 July, 1pm & 7.30pm Duration: 90 mins (no interval) Venue: Shirley Burke Theatre 64 Parkers Rd, Parkdale Seating: Allocated Tickets: Full $45 Concession $35 Group 6+ $35 Book now: 9556 4440 kingstonarts.com.au
