‘Moving feast’ of shared stories PERFORMERS from three generations will put on a multimedia retrospective of stories shared by women living on the Mornington Peninsula next month. When The Birds Come In, curated and crafted by Carole Patullo, Jane Bayly and Melanie Beddie, will be performed at the Southern Peninsula Arts Centre, Rosebud, 16-17 March. In what’s described as a “moving feast”, audiences will travel through various created environments and spaces offering live theatre, movement, soundscape, projection, song and installation in the show, which is being presented by A Woman’s Place and Dreamhouse Theatre. Students from Rosebud Secondary

College, young people from Dreamhouse Theatre Company, SPARK Productions and The Music Industry will work alongside professional actors and residents to reimagine stories and songs collected throughout A Woman’s Place. The festival, in its fourth year, uses local people and places as its inspiration. “There is something special about storytelling, and when those stories come from lived experiences and are transformed into theatre, the response from communities is profound,” said Anthea Mackenzie, who with actor and director Carole Patullo co-produces the multi-day arts event. Those telling their stories are invited

to bring in items from their past, photos or anything that relates to their story. Audience members will be invited to share their stories. Morning and afternoon teas will be served. “The magic that happens in storytelling isn’t with the storyteller, and it isn’t with the audience,” Ms Mackenzie said. “The magic is in the ‘something’ that happens between the two. The audience have always been integral throughout A Woman’s Place, that’s why the format for this year’s event is an exciting adventure to go on.” To book visit trybooking.com/ BAPJE

AN inspection of hi-tech waste facilities in China in 2017 by officers and councillors was indicative of Mornington Peninsula Shire’s commitment to better waste management, it is claimed. Shire infrastructure services manager Jessica Wingad said the visit aimed to progress the use of advanced waste and resource recovery technologies to reduce the need for more landfill sites. The technology also improved resource recovery from municipal, construction and commercial residual waste, she said. “Mornington Peninsula Shire was committed to best practice waste management and resource recovery, taking an active role in transitioning the state to waste-to-energy technology,” Ms Wingad said. “We continue to take local action to support best practice in conjunction with council’s advocacy in calling on state and federal governments to support council and the community in planning for a sustainable waste future.” She said the shire had implemented waste initiatives at local level, such as the Peninsula Compost Challenge, Bin Inspection Program and Recycling Champions.

“Council has been actively involved in driving sustainable waste strategies across Victoria and takes a leadership role in the Metropolitan Waste Management Groups forum and advocacy programs,” she said. “In 2017, then-mayor Cr Bryan Payne wrote to the Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change to advocate for an alternate waste technology facility in the South East Metropolitan Area.” Ms Wingad said the shire would “continue to strongly advocate to the state government on the strategic use of the Landfill Levy Fund to support the viability and sustainability of best practice waste management in Victoria”.
