The Ranges | 3 Perspectives

Drawing from the vivid and lush landscape of the Dandenong Ranges, a place each artist once called home, the works in this exhibition showcase three distinctly different perspectives. 

Be captured by the unique majesty of the ranges, seen through the eyes of these brilliant Australian landscape painters.

Mary Tonkin - Ramble : Contemporary plein air landscape artist whose detailed large scale representations reflect the forest at her family’s property in Kalorama.

Fred Williams -The Upwey Years :  Australia’s most iconic landscape artist redefined painting in the Australian bush during his ‘Upwey years’ from 1963-68.

Miles Evergood - Vistas : An impressionist whose 1930’s Kalorama paintings are characterised by strong colours and expressive brushstrokes and use of palette knife.

Burrinja Circus Festival Performance

Jugg Life

Live percussion combined with the camaraderie of two best friends, who also happen to be Australia's best jugglers.

Beginning with the simple tap of a stick on a drum and ending with the total mayhem of both performers keeping ludicrous numbers of props in the air, Jugg Life is an intense, non-stop escalation of skill and entertainment. As sound melds seamlessly with world-class technical ability and energetic stage presence, performers Byron Hutton and Joe Fisher display precisely what they love about juggling in as many ways as possible, incorporating competition, danger, music and a Rubik's Cube. Colourful, visual, turbulent and fun, Jugg Life is fun for the entire family. 'It's one hour of satisfaction' - Ciara Thorburn (Circus Garage Sale) 'Making juggling cool for the first time in history' - Fez Faanana (Briefs Factory)

Arj Barker • Comes Clean

“Do I swear to tell the whole truth? No, but I'll swear while telling the partial truth. And trust me, it's a lot more fun that way. If you truly want to laugh, then take my word for it. This is honestly the best hour of BS around; I kid you not...” Arj Barker

And he’s not wrong. Australia’s adopted son of comedy returns to Melbourne to premiere his brand-new hour of riotous comedy in Arj Barker ‘Comes Clean’.  

Be prepared for some home truths, some vague truths and some information none of us are ready to hear, but won’t be able to forget any time soon, because Arj brings the hilarity and lots of it.

WINNER - 2019 ARIA Award for Best Comedy Release – ‘Organic’

 “It’s a joy to spend an hour in his world” ★★★★★ The Advertiser

 “A must see for anyone who loves a laugh…” ­Adelaide Now

“Excellent stand-up by an exceptional comedian.” ★★★★ Broadway Baby”

Recommended for ages 15+ | 90 mins no interval
