Royal Theatre, National Convention Centre, September 3- 8
Stomp is back, and it's better than ever.
Following their acclaimed performance at the Closing Ceremony
of the London 2012 Olympics, Stomp returns to Canberra with
new routines, choreography and music.
See eight performers use everything from supermarket trolleys
to Zippo lighters, plastic bags to bin lids, and even the kitchen
sink to hammer out an explosively feel-good rhythm.
Wordless, witty and fun, Stomp has become a global
phenomenon over the last 22 years.
The Playhouse, Canberra Theatre Centre, October 2-5
Your heart dances. The world seems strange and new. You want
to laugh and skip and fall forever... You are in love.... You are in
love with the wrong person.
The success of 2012's Private Lives shows that Canberra loves
Coward. With this in mind, Canberra Theatre Centre could not
possibly pass up this international production of Brief Encounter.
Switching seamlessly between live theatre and film footage,
Kneehigh Theatre's production takes audiences back to a
bygone age of romance and the silver screen. This extraordinary
retelling of Brief Encounter, which was a David Lean classic 1945
film, starring Trevor Howard and Celia Johnson , has been a hit
on both Broadway and the West End.
Using the songs of Noël Coward, you will be taken on a
breathtaking, funny and tear-inducing ride with live musicians
on stage, characters jumping in and out of film screens, and a
couple so in love that they literally float on air.
BIJOU: a cabaret of
secrets and seduction
The Street Theatre, August 19
- November 17
A bar in Paris 1932. In tattered
finery Bijou tells and sells saucy
stories for food and wine singing
snatches of song as she relives
the adventures of her long-lost
youth. The bar pianist plays Satie,
Weill, Hollander, Bruant and more,
triggering memories of Bijou's
haphazard past. But tonight she
starts to unravel. Past, present,
truth and lies collide in a bizarre
confusion of tragi-comedy, cabaret
and bawdy revelations.
Actress Chrissie Shaw as Bijou
conjures a kaleidoscope of truth
and fantasy with ribald tales,
French and German songs, and
the mysteries of a women's
Ed Kuepper: The
Last Action Hero
The Street Theatre, October 17
Having recently returned to
Australia from touring Europe
and the US with the Bad Seeds,
the most legendary and influential
Ed Kuepper is coming to a town
near you for a night of special,
Solo And By Request shows.
That's right, armed with only his
voice; a couple of acoustic guitars
and a stomp box, Ed will play
crowd favourites from his vast
and influential back catalogue.
Songs from the Saints, Laughing
Clowns, the Aints as well as any
of the material from around
two dozen or so solo albums
are all fair game. Depending
on his mood, requests to "plays
something new!" may even be
indulged with a song or two from
Ed's as yet unfinished new album,
his first of all new material since
Jean Lee And The Yellow Dog in
Arj Barker -- Go Time
Canberra Theatre Centre, August 31
The lights dim. The music fades.
The audience applauds with
anticipation. Or they just get
alarmingly quiet. Every show
you've ever done leads up to this
point. But this is the only show
that matters now. Have you got the
goods, kid? They're about to find
out. It's Go Time.
Since his last Australian tour
in 2011, Arj has been touring
constantly, both solo and with
his old pals, The Flight of
The Conchords. He returns to
Canberra with his brand new
show, Go Time. According to Arj,
Go Time is both "what audiences
expect from me and the last thing
they expect from me, which if my
calculations are correct, will make
for a great show".
The Laughing Samoans
The Street Theatre, October 17
Don't miss the return of one of New Zealand's most successful
live comedy acts. The Laughing Samoans comedy duo of
Eteuati Ete and Tofiga Fepuleai has for the last 10 years been
touring New Zealand, Australia, the Pacific Islands and North
America performing their unique brand of comedy. This is
sketch comedy at its best as Ete and Fepuleai play a host of
characters including Aunty Tala, Uncle Sam. This is comedy
the whole family can enjoy.
