LOVE IS ALL AROUND ‘IN THE ROUND’ FICTION’S two most famous star-crossed lovers, Romeo and Juliet, are coming to Frankston next month thanks to a Dionysus Theatre production of Shakespeare’s passionate and tense tragedy. Romeo & Juliet will be staged at the McClelland College Performing Arts Centre in early October and director Emma Sproule is looking forward to bringing the tale of the two lovers caught between the feuding Capulet and Montague families to life. Those who already know the story of Romeo & Juliet will still find the Dionysus Theatre take on the Shakespeare play unique. “Ours is an interpretation that focuses on the power of the story and how timeless it continues to be as we introduce two storytellers, Sam and Greg, who weave in and out of the story in order to heighten our appreciation and understanding of its effect on us, even though we know from the very beginning exactly how it has to end,” Ms Sproule said.

In a post-modern twist, Sam and Greg become players in the story and try to save the doomed titular lovers. For centuries, Romeo & Juliet has been the love story by which all others are measured, and even though so many of its elements are outdated, extreme and unrealistic, it is as relevant today as it was more than 400 years ago. Dionysus’ twist to this tale shows that it still today remains the greatest love story ever told and it continues to be told because that is the power of a great story – the power that we never tire of sharing and living them; even when we know how they will end. Romeo & Juliet will be performed ‘in the round’ at McClelland College Performing Arts Centre, 26 Alexander Crescent, Karingal, 2-10 October, 8pm. Tickets $30, $25 concession, group booking discounts. See dionysustheatre.com.au for full dates and booking information.

SALON DES REFUSÉS Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery THE exhibition described as the “irreverent and playful rabble-rouser of the Archibald’s” the Salon des Refusés” is coming to Victoria – and Mornington – for the first time.

Talking point: Paul Trefry’s Homeless still human work is of silicone, fiberglass, polyester resin and horse hair. It was a Wynne Prize entry.

The exhibition showcases what’s described as “the ones that got away” – meaning those artworks that were not granted a showing in the famous Archibald Prize. They include a prized selection of the “humorous, innovative, mad, bad and dangerous entries that were too fabulous to resist”, say Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery organisers, who take delight in hosting the only showing in Victoria. The works, torn from obscurity, include portraits of Robert Forster, Catherine Martin and Carlotta, sculpture of a homeless man by Paul Trefry that was shown in the Wynne landscape prize, portrait of Greek Consul-General Dr Starvos Kyrimis, as well as Christopher Pyett’s sensitive portrait of Australian of the Year, Rosie Batty. The Salon des Refusés was begun by the S.H. Ervin Gallery, in Sydney, in 1992, in response to the large number of works entered into the Archibald and

Wynne prizes not selected for hanging in the official exhibition. Each year a panel is invited to go behind the scenes to select the best from the many works entered, but not chosen, for the official awards. The criteria for those selected in the Salon are quality, diversity, humour and innovation. The S.H. Ervin’s Salon des Refusés exhibition has established a reputation that rivals the selections of the “official” prize exhibitions and is often cited as a “more lively

and discerning” selection, the gallery says. It will run 10 October-29 November at the gallery in Civic Reserve, 350 Dunns Rd (corner Mornington-Tyabb and Dunns Rd), Mornington. Tickets are adults $7, with Mornington gallery and other Victorian gallery members, concession and National Trust Members $4 and children under five free. There is free entry for seniors during the Victorian Seniors Festival, Tuesdays 13, 20 and 27 October.
