Afterglow: On the Border of Things

^^

When: Wednesday 17th January - Saturday 20th January
Where: PACT Centre for Emerging Artists, 107 Railway Parade, Erskineville
Time: 7pm
Cost: $12-$15

From January 17th to 20th, PACT Centre for Emerging Artists will present the first production in their 2018 AFTERGLOW season, On The Border of Things, a new Australian work by interdisciplinary artist James Nguyen and his uncle Cong Ai Nguyen. A bilingual performance installation presented in English and Vietnamese, On The Border of Things blends video shot by James with live performance to explore the movement of people, agriculture and the environment. On The Border of Things has been developed over three years by James alongside his uncle, Cong Ai, an itinerant fruit picker who immigrated to Australia from Vietnam in 1994. Over a series of road trips to visit Cong Ai on farms in country Victoria and South Australia, James delved into the mythologies and mysticism of modern food production. As globally connected consumers, James questions the journeys and narratives that we inadvertently swallow with every mouthful. This exciting new work has been created during James’ three-year PACT residency, and was co-commissioned by PACT and Melbourne’s Next Wave emerging artists initiative. On The Border of Things is a performance that will be staged in two parts - Part One premiering at PACT and Part Two premiering at the 2018 Next Wave Festival. Each performance will be followed by live DJs in the PACT foyer.

The 50’s has never been so fun. The 7 Sopranos turn back time to the era of Hollywood glamour as they throw off their classic opera gowns for 50’s pin up look, with their upcoming Australian show dedicated to popular hits. Living up to their reputation as the “showgirls of opera”, The 7 Sopranos’ new musical – Songs from Stage and Screen, draws on classic songs such as – I Got Rhythm, Big Spender and Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend—in a deliciously cheeky show celebrating sisterhood, the power of transformation, and flirtatious fluttering petticoats. It is 1956. Radio broadcasters predict that television will be the death of radio. For five years the voices of Australia’s favourite singing group The 7 Sopranos have seduced audiences across Australia. The race is now on to transform from radio stars to TV stars. Will they succeed? A triumph of beautifully blended harmonies, incredible musicianship and spine-tingling arrangements from acclaimed composers such as Rodgers & Hammerstein, Gershwin and Mancini, The 7 Sopranos will intoxicate the senses and seduce the mind with a stage show like no other. So, channel your inner Doris Day, Marilyn Monroe or Rita Hayworth and be transported into a world of nylons, killer heels and eye-poppin’ lipstick!
