& Lucy Wise Workshop

MUSIC IN MAY

Saturday 21st May 2022 7.00pm @ Cheshunt Hall

Lucy Wise, Evan Davis & Mischa Herman are all multi-instrumentalists who explore Celtic, folk and American old time music. Their music is sure to lift your soul. Please join us for this fabulous event – we look forward to seeing you and dancing with you all.

Evan and Mischa are both talented multi-instrumentalists, who explore traditional Irish, Breton and American Old-Time music. They bring together flute, accordion, guitar, whistle, and banjo in combinations that surprise and delight listeners. Both musicians have a solid base in Celtic and associated traditional music styles to which they add their own contemporary compositions. Their self-titled EP was released to critical acclaim: ‘Not often do I come across musicianship on traditional instruments at this level. Florid runs amidst gorgeous tones and pulsing rhythms, this music is sure to lift the soul.’ -Anthony ‘ToK’ Norris.

Lucy Wise is a Melbourne-based multi-instrumentalist and singer. Accompanying herself on guitar, ukulele and Appalachian dulcimer, she creates a contemporary sound that draws from folk, Old Time American and Celtic music. The evocative imagery and universal themes in Lucy’s songs have won the hearts of listeners from a diverse range of ages and backgrounds and have seen her tour three albums and two EP’s in Australia, NZ, the US and the UK since 2010. “Lucy is a natural storyteller, infusing songs with a sense of place so strong you can almost feel the dusty earth crunch beneath your feet as she sings,” says The Brag.

Waves by Alice Mary Cooper

Waves by Alice Mary Cooper

WAVES

By Alice Mary Cooper

WAVES By Alice Mary Cooper

Friday, 11 March 2022 @ 7pm

An intimate theatrical event with splashes of humour that tells the story of a life fully lived.

WAVES

Waves follows the story of Alice, a hospice care worker who meets Elizabeth Moncello, the unofficial inventor of the butterfly stroke. Over many cups of tea, Alice learns how Liz, during her youth, taught herself how to swim by watching the aquatic life surrounding her small Victorian island home in the 1930s. With her incredible skill and determination, she makes it to the Berlin Olympics where she introduces the new stroke to the world and wins Gold.

A delightful tale of historical fiction, Waves is an intimate theatrical event that combines highly expressive storytelling, delicate movement and splashes of humour to tell the story of a life fully lived. 

Waves is about having an idea and the courage, drive and desire to follow it through, to swim against the tide of history and expectations, and to achieve something that is truly incredible. While the character of Elizabeth is fictional, the work is an homage to the incredible pioneering female swimmers of the early 1900s and women ‘of a certain age’ that society has largely forgotten.

 

Alice Mary Cooper (Creator & Performer) is an Australian, Edinburgh-based actor, theatre-maker and has been described as ‘a performer and storyteller dedicated to instilling a sense of wonder in her audience.’ (Broadway Baby).  Alice makes work for all ages and is passionate about sustainability and making work that has the environment at its heart. She holds a Bachelor of Creative Arts from Melbourne University and is a graduate of L’Ecole Philippe Gaulier, Paris.  Alice’s show, Waves (‘a miniaturist gem’ The Guardian) has toured extensively including to Edinburgh International Children’s Festival, Auckland Arts Festival and New Zealand International.

KING VALLEY ART SHOW … Sadly cancelled for 2021 … but we’ll be back in 2022!

KING VALLEY ART SHOW … Sadly cancelled for 2021 … but we’ll be back in 2022!

Dear Artists, Friends and Supporters,

It is with sadness and more than a little frustration that we advise you that King Valley Arts has reluctantly decided to cancel the 2021 King Valley Art Show.

Making this decision was hard after we had moved the show from June to October/November to avoid just this eventuality.

King Valley Arts is exploring ideas for small scale art events or shows in the first half of 2022. We will let you know more once sufficient planning has taken place and we have reasonable confidence that sudden lockdowns are unlikely.

Please know that our 2022 King Valley Art Show will take place over Melbourne Cup Weekend. This will be Friday 28 October to Tuesday 1 November 2022.

The KVA committee wish you enjoyment and satisfaction in your artistic endeavours for the remainder of 2021 and onwards.

Please stay well and we hope to show you the wonderful works in the in 2022 Art Show.

Warm regards

Anita Laurence      Karen Eastwood       Michael Ashby      Rowena Tainton

The Magnolia Tree – 22nd May

The Magnolia Tree – 22nd May

The Magnolia Tree

By Michael Gray Griffith

A new Australian thriller with a twist…

Saturday 22nd May 2021 7.30pm

Three siblings have come together to choose a nursing home for their mother, who has advanced Alzheimer’s, but instead Jack, for unclear reasons, will attempt to talk his sisters into letting her go, tonight. Will his sisters’ principles hold up, or will the decades of poverty ahead of them force them to re-evaluate the morality their mother taught them?

The play has a deliciously dangerous twist that you will be talking about for days.

So the real question is, how robust is your morality?

Starring Tottie Goldsmith in the role of Vicky, Rohana Hayes, one of the Co-founders of The Wolves, will play the other sister Debbie, and Ezra Bix who is starring in the upcoming Netflix show Clickbait, will play the controversial Jack.

The Magnolia Tree is presented by The Wolves Theatre Company, a group of artists determined to show that mature creatives can be original, challenging and pertinent. Their focus is to write and produce bold, contemporary pieces aimed predominantly at the 45 plus demographic.

‘In a lifetime of going to see theatre I have never been as
emotionally involved in a play as I have in this one.’
John Flaus

‘Playwright Michael Griffith has written a striking character-driven play
filled with family secrets and fractured relationships,
presenting them with an impossible bind… A must see.’
Simi West (4/5 stars)
