NOT TODAY’S Yesterday BY LIMOSANI PROJEKTS

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

PERFORMANCE 20

“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.


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?

PERFORMANCE 22

Following its triumphant premiere season in Melbourne 1955, Summer of the Seventeenth Doll won Best New Play in London’s West End, placing Australian theatre firmly on the global stage. This 2020 production celebrates the 65th anniversary of this iconic work. For sixteen years straight, two cane-cutters work in Queensland seven months of the year, and return to their girlfriends in Melbourne for five months of partying and romance. But the seventeenth summer is different. And all bets are off...


“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.” artsreview.com.au

“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 30-31), 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)

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)

Local & Community KNICKERS – a brief comedy PRESENTED BY MORDIALLOC THEATRE COMPANY

LOCAL & COMMUNITY EVENTS

38

The paper mill that long propped up the economy of fictitious town Warton in the Mallee region of Victoria has been shut down, sending the town spiralling into an economic depression. When a well-meaning but totally unprepared tourism expert arrives to lend a hand, she discovers an unlikely business partnership in the three local women that make up the local chapter of Weight Watchers. Could the ladies’ plan (complete with a giant roadside attraction) really be the town’s salvation? This hilariously irreverent comedy celebrates determination, entrepreneurial spirit, and the love of a regional town under threat.
