Belgrave South Primary School presents:

Romeo & Harriet

This hilarious musical spoof puts the ‘shake’ in Shakespeare!

With the help of a group of quarrelling chorus members — Oregano, Carpaccio, Risotto, Prosciutto, Antipasto, Pesto, Mayo and Romano — we get a deliciously funny spoof of Romeo and Juliet. Their comedic and intelligent commentary seasons the show with laughter galore so actors and audience alike won’t even realize they’re learning about Shakespeare!

The stage is set in modern-day New York City, where clerks of the swanky Montague’s Department store and the second-rate Capulet’s Discount Mart meet in the street to trade insults. Words are their daggers, so watch out, you might die laughing!

Naturally, the heirs to these two retail empires, Romeo and Harriet, fall in love, but don’t think you know the rest... this musical has a happy ending! ‘Humph. Call yourself a tragedy,’ exclaims Oregano at the end of the show, disappointed to find no dead bodies. Nope, its pure comedy with pie fights in place of duels, a nurse obsessed with paper cuts, Romeo dressed in a white leisure suit à la John Travolta and an outrageous parody of the most romantic scene in literature. A fun, eclectic collection of musical numbers underscores all this hilarity, including a number in iambic pentameter!
It would be a real tragedy to miss out on this one!

Masters of Aboriginal Contemporary Art

Emily Kame Kngwarreye


A survey exhibition of one of the Western Desert art movement’s most important artists Emily Kame Kngwarreye.

Credited with taking Australian indigenous art to the world ‘Emily’ is one of our most iconic and collectable painters. An Anmatyerre elder, keeper of the Alhalkere Women's Dreaming stories, she was in in her 70’s before she began capturing this deeply significant cultural heritage on canvas.

This exhibition is part of Burrinja's Masters of Aboriginal Contemporary Art series which presents an intriguing portrait of Australia’s most revered Aboriginal and contemporary artists.

“Kngwarreye's prominence is no overnight sensation; it finds its roots in a lifetime of ritual and artistic activity. Her energetic paintings are a response to the land of her birth, Alhalkere, north of Alice Springs …  the contours of the landscape, the cycles of seasons, the parched land, the flow of flooding waters and sweeping rains, the patterns of seeds and the shape of plants, and the spiritual forces which imbue the country. Kngwarreye's vision of the land is unique; her paintings challenge the way we look at art by Aboriginal Australians” Wally Caruana, National Gallery of Australia

‘Few artists have painted the country like she has, with an ability to penetrate its very soul'. -Margo Neale, curator of her 1998 retrospective exhibition

Wominjeka: A New Beginning

Wominjeka: A New Beginning celebrates 30 years of the Koorie Heritage Trust. This project highlights cultural continuities alongside new modes of creative practice in the work of five cross-generational early career artists; Georgia MacGuire, Aunty Marlene Gilson, Mitch Mahoney, Josh Muir and Raymond Young.

Each of the participating artists has developed new work in dialogue with the Trust’s significant collections of objects, artworks, archives and oral histories – each identifying objects and artifacts that share or spark a connection with their own artistic practice, personal or cultural enquiry. Over a three-month period the artists worked alongside senior mentors; Maree Clarke, Lee Darroch, Ray Thomas and Peter Waples-Crowe to explore the Trust’s Collections and to develop new works in dialogue with the past.

The exhibition presents this new work alongside the objects of inspiration from the Trust’s collection. Exhibited works utilise a broad array of media, materials and techniques including; painting, animal skin cloaks and textiles, bark and feather flowers, clay shields and digital prints.

Exhibition coordinator: Jan Duffy,  Koorie Heritage Trust
