Head on over to Haymarket this August to see this one! Jersey Boys review

Human non Human

This unique and interesting exhibition explores core human motivations and presents the questions of what the future will see for us. Human non Human uses architecture, robotics, biotechnology, chemistry, organic matter, film and performance across four fantastic installation works. These represent society’s evolution and explore the possibility for adaptation across four primary aspects of life: food, work, sex, and belief. This exhibition is thought provoking and will reside with long after you exit the doors of the Powerhouse Museum- do not miss out this August.

The Comedy of Errors

Of all the Shakespearean plays, Comedy of Errors is among the funniest. Perfectly situated in Moore Park’s intimate Pop-up Globe it presents a very special setting, ideal for this play. The plot follows twin brothers separated at birth and explores themes of displacement and immigration. The light-hearted and comedic delivery results in an engaging and entertaining performance.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Another Shakespearean favorite, A Midsummer Night’s Dream follows two pairs of lovers as they become lost in the woods on a magical evening. Also showing at the Pop-up Gobe, the private and delicate setting makes for a perfect backdrop to this iconic play. In a creative twist, an all-male cast adds a contemporary edge to this classic.
