  • My Robot : 29 - 30 July

    When Ophelia moves with her family to the seaside, she’s not impressed. She doesn’t like the beach, misses her old home and thinks the people in this town are pretty strange. While unpacking her room she discovers a mysterious box full of gadgets, parts and pieces, and a strange note that reads ‘You. Make. Me.’ Her curiosity gets the better of her and she spends all night assembling the objects into Olivetti, a robot with a typewriter chest and an alarm clock heart. Made up of pieces, but more than the sum of her parts.

    Together Ophelia and Olivetti take on the local bully and make friends with a child so worried about allergies that he never leaves the house, all while trying to keep her dad from discovering that Olivetti is really a robot. But a bigger challenge is coming – can the pair save their friend and reunite him with his mother?

    My Robot takes audiences of all ages on a rambunctious adventure filled with robot antics, laughter, daring rescues and bewildered parents, all told with the care and artistry synonymous with Barking Gecko’s award winning shows. Children will discover that we’re all just made from pieces, and that when we feel less than whole we can find – or make – a part that fits!

  • Precarious : 3 August

    Inspired by the garden surrounds, Precarious is a 70-minute non-stop spectacle of acrobatic mayhem for audiences of all ages. The Circus Oz ensemble will unearth innovative circus acts to create an exciting three-dimensional world that examines the fragility that exists between humanity and nature.

    The outstanding skills and talents of the Circus Oz ensemble will include extraordinary foot juggling, jaw dropping aerial rope and tippy ring, mesmerising roué cyr, Chinese pole and hula hoop – all hilariously woven together with original music from the live Circus Oz band.

    Circus Oz Artistic Director, Rob Tannion, joins forces with independent director, Kate Fryer, to craft Precarious and create the mayhem that is the ministry of nature – an absurd lo-fi bureaucracy filled with phenomenal acrobatics, spectacular aerials, live music and physical comedy.

    Brought together by their shared love of storytelling in recognisable, yet surreal worlds, Tannion and Fryer will continue to push circus innovation, extending expectations of circus skill and apparatus through collaboration with the Circus Oz ensemble, musicians and production team.

  • THE SAPPHIRES : 14 AUGUST

    The Sapphires is one of the Australia’s best-loved stories. Winning multiple awards as a play, film and soundtrack album there was one challenge left and that was to undertake a national tour of Australia.

    Writer Tony Briggs will direct his work in a version he promises will be the most intimate telling of The Sapphires story yet, coming to the Mandurah Performing Arts Centre on Wednesday, 14 August 2019.

    Four young women from regional Australia, who like singing country music, suddenly get the chance to change their tune, their clothes and their lives. Wearing uniforms of sequins,
    armed only with microphones they find themselves trying to spread joy in the hell that is the Vietnam War.

    The Sapphires is a funny, heart-warming tale inspired by the true story of writer Tony Brigg’s mother. It tells of the incredible journey of a singing group of four Yorta Yorta Women, who sing Motown soul hits against the backdrop of personal change and massive social upheaval.

  • THE SEBEL MANDURAH PRESENTS MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING : 17 AUGUST

    Much Ado About Nothing is proudly presented by The Sebel Mandurah, coming to the Mandurah Performing Arts Centre on Saturday, 17 August 2019.

    Claudio and Hero are deeply in love. Beatrice and Benedick would rather swap sassy insults than sweet nothings.

    Much Ado About Nothing is a saucy and razor-sharp battle of wits between the bickering Beatrice and Benedick, who wield words as weapons, their banter betraying their love for each other.

    Claudio however is quickly consumed by envy and his idyllic world threatens to come tumbling down as he humiliates Hero. Beatrice and Benedick must join forces to defend true love – even if they can’t recognise it in themselves.

    But will truth and honesty win the day, and does love really conquer all?

    Directed by Bell Shakespeare’s Associate Director, James Evans (Julius Caesar) and starring Zindzi Okenyo (Antony and Cleopatra, MTC’s An Ideal Husband) as Beatrice, this Much Ado About Nothing will be a powerful exploration of the struggle for identity and self-knowledge in a male-dominated world. The pursuit of love is framed in a social context that enhances the darker themes in this timeless comic gem.
