Battling a physical impairment, Frank creates monsters to fulfil his desire to be normal and to be accepted by others. Can he control what he creates? And where is the real monster anyway? Frank Enstein is a retelling of the classic tale for children and adults magical dance-theatre illuminating a path to self-acceptance. This is theatre as if made by Michel Gondry, handcrafted and full of the love of

old fashioned techniques. The Farm’s wicked sense of humour, magic and dance will create a show for the child in all of us.

Saint Joan

HeddA Gabler

Amadeus

Twelfth Night

by Bernard Shaw

‘I’ve no talent for life.’

Music. Power. Jealousy.

Tamsin Greig is Malvolia in a new twist on Shakespeare’s classic comedy of mistaken identity.

Gemma Arterton is Joan of Arc, recorded live from the Donmar Warehouse.

Just married. Bored already. Hedda longs to be free...

Lucian Msamati (Luther, Game of Thrones, NT Live: A Comedy of Errors) plays Salieri in Peter Shaffer’s iconic play, broadcast live from the National Theatre, and with live orchestral accompaniment by Southbank Sinfonia.

Bernard Shaw’s classic play follows the life and trial of a young country girl who declares a bloody mission to drive the English from France. As one of the first Protestants and nationalists, she threatens the very fabric of the feudal society and the Catholic Church across Europe. Josie Rourke (Coriolanus, Les Liaisons Dangereuses) directs Gemma Arterton (Gemma Bovery, Nell Gwynn, Made in Dagenham) as Joan of Arc in this electrifying production.

NATIONAL THEATRE LIVE INFORMATION

Hedda and Tesman have just returned from their honeymoon and the relationship is already in trouble. Trapped but determined, Hedda tries to control those around her, only to see her own world unravel. Tony Award-winning director Ivo van Hove (A View from the Bridge at the Young Vic Theatre) returns to National Theatre Live screens with a modern production of Ibsen’s masterpiece. Ruth Wilson (Luther, The Affair, Jane Eyre) plays the title role in a new version by Patrick Marber (Notes on a Scandal, Closer).

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, a rowdy young prodigy, arrives in Vienna, the music capital of the world – and he’s determined to make a splash. Awestruck by his genius, court composer Antonio Salieri has the power to promote his talent or destroy his name. Seized by obsessive jealousy he begins a war with Mozart, with music, and ultimately, with God. After winning multiple Olivier and Tony Awards when it premiered at the National Theatre in 1979, Amadeus was adapted into an Academy Award-winning film.

A ship is wrecked on the rocks. Viola is washed ashore but her twin brother Sebastian is lost. Determined to survive on her own, she steps out to explore a new land. So begins a whirlwind of mistaken identity and unrequited love. The nearby households of Olivia and Orsino are overrun with passion. Even Olivia’s upright housekeeper Malvolia is swept up in the madness. Where music is the food of love, and nobody is quite what they seem, anything proves possible. Simon Godwin (NT Live: Man and Superman, NT Live: The Beaux’ Stratagem) directs this joyous new production with Tamsin Greig (Friday Night Dinner, Black Books, Episodes) as a transformed Malvolia. an ensemble cast that includes Daniel Rigby (Flowers, Jericho), Tamara Lawrence (Undercover), Doon Mackichan (Smack the Pony) and Daniel Ezra (The Missing, Undercover). 15

ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE Two blokes in an office. One older, one younger. A cross between The Office and a cage-fight, this game of comical one-upmanship builds to a moment of impact where everything is suspended. A flash of bared teeth, the desperation of needing to prove yourself vs the need to hold on to what you’ve got.

Cockfight explores the power play between men, the frailty of the ageing body and questions our culture’s desperate desire for achievement.

ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE Follow Aki as he starts life amidst the extraordinary inhabitants of this new land. Will he find a place to live? Will he find a job and make friends? Most of all, will Aki ever see his family again? The absence of words not only makes this story perfect for puppetry but emphasises the isolation experienced by many people arriving in a new place.

The Arrival is a fusion of Tan’s beautiful and surreal illustrations with exquisite puppetry, haunting music and fine acting. This ground breaking production blurs the boundaries of performance, digital animation and puppetry. This is an emotionally moving piece which will touch anyone who has bid farewell to a loved one.

The discovery of the biggest names in fashion photography can rightly be credited to the legendary publisher Condé Nast, as so many photographers’ careers were launched on the pages of his magazines – most notably Vogue and Vanity Fair. This exhibition will bring together a selection of rare photographs from the Condé Nast Archive in New York, Paris, Milan and London. It features work by a gamut of photographers including Edward Steichen, Mario Testino, David Bailey, Helmut Newton and Cecil Beaton, whose individual styles have kept fashion photography on the cutting edge.

Presented in partnership with the Senior Visual Arts Educators of the Gold Coast, Gold Coast City Gallery will again host the exhibition which includes a diverse range of creativity and mediums including painting, drawing, photomedia, printmaking and graphic design.

RSVP Invitation only Before the excitement of the launch, throw yourself into a full day of intensive making and learning from professional artists. Soak up their knowledge, skills and techniques while learning about how they first got their foothold in the arts industry. Proudly supported by Friends of The Arts Centre Gold Coast.
