An Evening in Three Parts

Act 1: Look, listen & learn

Act 2: Play the art
A re-imagining of Shakespearian proportions, a troupe of 'actors’ attempt to earnestly and experimentally present Hamlet with superfluous results – threatening not only their careers but the Western Canon itself. Nominated for the 2018 Philip Parson’s award.

Trigger warnings: R18+ Course Language. Themes of sexual assault, suicide, self-harm, images of nudity.

Act 3: God Queen
Be entranced by the soulful sounds of Alphamama accompanied by the Des Fleurs dance crew. Alphamama has been an influential player in the RnB/Soul and hip-hop scene, collaborating with and supporting some of the industry’s finest from Salt-N-Pepa, Thundamentals, NGAIIRE and Jessica Mauboy.
