Greece Lightning ~ Garry Star

Zeus, Fools, and Drachmas: One Idiot's Mythical Quest for Prosperity.

Thu 13 Jun 7.30pm | Lyre Room

Warnings: Audience participation, Nudity, Strong language/swearing

An overzealous idiot attempts to perform all of Greek Mythology in order to save his Hellenic homeland from economic ruin.

Never before has Medusa been looser, Achilles more sillies or Uranus so heinous. Having single handedly saved the performing arts in 2018 with his multi-award-winning debut show Garry Starr Performs Everything, comic wunderkind Garry returns with another anarchic masterclass not to be mythed.

"Starr’s rambunctious antics belie how intelligent and tightly structured this exhilarating hour of sidesplittingly funny physical comedy is" ★★★★★ Sydney Morning Herald

HELIOS ~ Wright & Grainger

Internationally award winning modern re-telling of an ancient myth.

Fri 30 Aug 7.30pm | Lyre Room

A lad lives half way up a historic hill.
A teenager is on a road trip to the city in a stolen car.
A boy is driving a chariot, pulling the sun across the sky.

A story about the son of the god of the sun, HELIOS transplants the Ancient Greek tale into a modern-day myth wound round the winding roads of rural England and into the everyday living of a towering city. A story about life and the invisible monuments we build into it.

Written & Told by Alexander Wright
Music by Phil Grainger

Tickets - $19 ~ $29

Encore tickets - $20.30

The upcoming Burrinja performance of KATE MILLER-HEIDKE - CATCHING DIAMONDS TOUR on Tuesday 20 February, 2024 has been rescheduled for Saturday 21 September, 2024 due to scheduling conflicts.

Current ticket holders please check your email for important information regarding the rescheduling of this show

 

Kate Miller-Heidke is an award-winning singer-songwriter who traverses the worlds of folk, pop, opera and musical theatre.  She has performed on stages as varied as the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Coachella, the New York Metropolitan Opera, the Eurovision Song Contest, the Sydney Opera House, and the Roebuck Bay Hotel, Broome. 

And now, after long months locked away writing songs, she’s hitting the road to play in dozens of beautiful theatres around Australia.

Kate will be playing her greatest hits and most beloved pop songs, as well as performing tracks from her original musicals ‘Muriel’s Wedding the Musical’ and the new ‘Bananaland’, some unexpected covers, taking requests, and telling stories from across her varied career. Excitingly, she’ll also be debuting new material from her forthcoming 6th studio album, which will dive deep into the genre of ‘gothic folk’.

This is a special opportunity to see Kate in intimate, stripped-back mode, accompanied by her long-term collaborator Keir Nuttall on guitar. 

(The bendy poles from Eurovision will be there emotionally, but not physically).

Velveteen Rabbit ~ Born in a Taxi

A must-see for families and anyone who has ever cherished a beloved toy!

Tue 1 Oct 11.00am | Burrinja Theatre

Lights! Cameras! Action! Set within a film shoot, layered with live projections, Melbourne theatre company Born in a Taxi thoughtfully and hilariously reimagines this 100 year old children’s story by Margery Williams. Please bring your own favourite snuggly toy to the show! This is a show where the toys are in charge on stage and your own special guest toy is a VIP.

One of those rare stories that dares to tease out complex themes of loss and love in a way that allows children to connect with them, The Velveteen Rabbit is about a toy rabbit who becomes real…but how did it happen? In the hands of Born in a Taxi, the story is infused with dynamic audience participation, music, live stream video and projections layered into the work that play with multiple scales and give the audience the perspective of a child. Playful, visual and poetic.

The Velveteen Rabbit is created by Born in a Taxi, commissioned by Monash University Performing Arts Centre and supported by Creative Victoria.

“This is a beautiful, beautiful, beautiful piece of work” - Anne-Marie Peard, Smart Arts with Richard Watts on Triple RRR Radio
