Kingston Artscape (Jul - Dec 2022)

Page 1

July–Dec 2022


A message from the Mayor After two years of COVID restrictions, I am very much looking forward to opening the Kingston Senior’s Festival in October and hearing Kingston’s mighty Wurlizter Organ being played by the very talented Scott Harrison. This will be a fitting start to the festival, which features many events both at Kingston Arts and across Council. A highlight of the Seniors Festival program will be two performances of Ray Lawler’s iconic Summer of the Seventeenth Doll, playing at Shirley Burke Theatre in Parkdale, which are bound to be a sell-out so get your tickets quick! Our younger folk are not forgotten either – The Alphabet of Awesome Science and Brass Monkeys will have them captivated and giggling. These shows will tick the Entertainment box for your school holiday activities. And for the art-loving kids, our Street Art Workshops will have them diving for their paint boxes. In September our Dialogues program will launch offering exciting workshops and speaker opportunities for artists and creatives to learn and engage. We will also be introducing OptiKA Up Late, a new initiative which will feature over 30 projections of artworks across Council sites in Kingston during winter. Experience unexpected encounters with art and OptiKA as you’ve never seen it before! Sharon and Slava Grigoryan will be back in a rescheduled event in December, so if you missed them in May, make sure you book your tickets early. We are so lucky to have classical musicians of such a high calibre in our theatre in Moorabbin. These performances and more can be found here in our final issue of Artscape for 2022. We look forward to welcoming you to Kingston Arts. Cr Steve Staikos Mayor, City of Kingston 2\

Presented by Raconteur Productions Lost In Venice is based on the true story of amateur filmmaker Ron Vincent and his wife Rita Vincent.

Lost In Venice is a tale of travel, identity and the disparate perspectives of those travelling and those left at home.

It centres on Ron’s ill-fated trip to Italy in the summer of 1965 with his friend Bert Haynes, the founder of Pampas Pastry... Bert Haynes never returned.

Featuring Richard Vegas, Abigail King and Nikki Nouveau, the show combines theatre, archival Super 8 film projection and cabaret. Lost In Venice will entertain, intrigue, charm and challenge.

Directed by Denny Lawrence

A beautifully observed, humorous and poignant play, Ray Lawler’s much-loved tale of two Queensland cane cutters who for 16 years have worked up north in the brutal sugar canefields and travelled back to Melbourne to meet up for five months of partying and romance with their barmaid girlfriends. But this seventeenth summer will prove challenging for them all. A triumph at its 1955 Melbourne premiere, followed by a national tour and hugely successful season in London’s West End, this new production of the iconic Australian classic Summer of the Seventeenth Doll will be directed by award winning Denny Lawrence. 10 \ performance

“A story of love, heartache, hope and loss, Ray Lawler’s Summer of the Seventeenth Doll remains one of the theatrical canon’s most moving explorations of the fading of youth and dreams”.

Our Place The success of any collaboration is dependant on a myriad of factors, some obvious, others less tangible.

Sharon & Slava Grigoryan are an example of such a synergy, resulting in music that connects deeply with the listener. Perhaps it is their union professionally and in life that provides the intangible factor fuelling their passionate and sensitive performances. Their repertoire spans cultures, generations and genres – from standard works for guitar and cello (Vivaldi, Granados, Piazzolla) to creations by contemporary composers, their own compositions and arrangements which shine a new light on familiar favourites.

12 \ performance

Slava Grigoryan is an acknowledged guitar master on the world stage. Sharon Grigoryan has forged a formidable career throughout Australia performing with all major symphony orchestras and chamber ensembles, including her recent seven year tenure with the Australian String Quartet.
