CUSP:

Designing into the Next Decade

6 July – 1 September

Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre is pleased to be a host venue for the national touring exhibition, CUSP: Designing into the Next Decade developed by Object:

Australian Design Centre. CUSP presents a creative program exploring design as a human-centred approach that can enrich the experience of life for individuals, organisations and communities. In recent years, design has increasingly found application beyond the scope of aesthetics and products. It is also being understood as a way of thinking that has the ability to positively shape our future. Ranging from architecture to fashion, object, interactive, system, robotics and sound design, this program will feature twelve visionary Australian designers who have the potential to influence lifestyle, learning and cultural change in the decade ahead.

7 December 2013 – 27 January 2014

Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre’s summer blockbuster will present a suite of exhibitions which explore the concept of wrapping, whether it be a rock star in leather, a soprano in a wig or a eucalyptus tree bound by tarpaulin. Enraptured features:

The Art of Costuming: Costumes from Opera Australia: Take a unique and intimate look at what goes on behind the scenes of an opera production, from the perspective of its costume and wig designers and makers.

Tony Mott Rock Photos: Tony Mott is one of, if not the, world’s leading music photographers. His portraits show music artists in both intimate and staged environments and his work ideally communicates the diverse and fascinating ways in which costume is used by musical artists.

Christo: John Kaldor Family Collection artist room: Christo is one of the world’s greatest and most enduring contemporary artists, having practiced for over half a century. Infamous for his wrapped works, Christo, along with life-long partner Jeanne-Claude, has made his mark all over the world by wrapping its most famous, and obscure, monuments and landmarks.

Performance 4a presents inspiring Asian Australian theatre in

revelatory storytelling performance. Six storytellers delve

into their family’s past to uncover the threads that lead to their lives in contemporary Australia. War robs a father of his children, obliterates a young woman’s village, forces another into a hasty marriage and thwarts a young man’s aspirations. Yet they persist to reach new homes, new lives and a future for their children. Hear about the heartbroken dancer who becomes a burlesque showgirl; the busy young professional who outsources her quest for a husband; the traveller who finally comes to terms with her cultural homeland; and the charmed life of a child growing up in a family of entertainers. These are universal stories of adversity and triumph, loss and redemption, heartbreak and joy.

This is a practical workshop that focuses on improvisation and play building. Teachers will be introduced to new exercises, games and techniques of play building and improvisation which they can take back to the classroom and share with their students. The workshop will also outline creative methods to lead devised performances in the classroom and on stage.

Next Decade | 6 July – 1 September

Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre is pleased to be a host venue for the national touring exhibition, CUSP: Designing into the Next Decade developed by Object: Australian Design Centre. CUSP presents a creative program exploring design as a human-centred approach that can enrich the experience of life for individuals, organisations and communities.

In recent years, design has increasingly found application

beyond the scope of aesthetics and products. It is also

being understood as a way of thinking that has the ability

to

positively shape our future. Ranging from architecture

to

fashion, object, interactive, system, robotics and sound

design, this program will feature twelve visionary Australian designers who have the potential to influence lifestyle, learning and cultural change in the decade ahead.

A Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre project created by director

Claudia Chidiac and writer Finegan Kruckemeyer in consultation with young people, Tough Beauty is a response to the escalating statistics of young female violence. It’s a play borne from YouTube fight clips and schoolyard insults. It’s about keeping your eyes down and your fists up. Half a minute of violence which will decide your next five years of high school.

Q&A with the director and actors after every 11am show, contact Education Officer to book. Education Resource available with every school booking.

Pacifica Navigation

5 October – 1 December

This year’s Pacific program and festival will look at the contemporary and traditional science of navigation coupled with the social mapping of Pacific cultures. Contemporary artists have been invited to respond to collections from museums, identify and consult community historians about family, country knowledge and heritage, as well as celebrate ancestral past and future journeys. Pacifica Navigation will also highlight significant travelling exhibitions from City Gallery New Zealand that include artists such as Lindah Lepou, Ngaahina Hohaia and Israel Tangaloa Birch.

Notions of social mapping will explore how navigation has been integral to our understanding of ancient history, gender and sexuality, health and well-being, identity and fashion, migration and globablisation. Artists include, Sam Tupou, Brian Fuata, and Daniel Boyd.

This performance will be Auslan interpreted.

A Streetcar Named Desire tells the story of Blanche Dubois, a Southern Belle whose pretensions to virtue and culture only thinly mask alcoholism and delusions of grandeur. Her poise

is an illusion she presents to shield others (but most of all

herself) from her reality, and an attempt to continue to make herself attractive to new male suitors. Blanche’s depressing and heartbreaking past leads her to her sister Stella, in a poor but charming apartment in the French Quarter of New Orleans. However, her destructive relationship with Stella’s

husband triggers a wave of emotions which aim to break her.
