"The patients are played with acute sensitivity by Laurence Coy, Joshua McElroy, Wayne McDaniel, Stephen Madsen, Tony Poli and Wendy Strehlow. They work in inspiring, collaboration, always in character, engaging and convincing, whether slumped and withdrawn, rigidly inert, stealthily observant – or enthusiastically involved in one of McMurphy’s pranks, including a wild ‘ward party’ where two of his ‘girlfriends’ Candy and Sandra (Bishanyia Vincent and Felicity Jurd) upset everyone’s libido."

We gave tours as part of Open House Melbourne alongside North Melbourne community Queen Lorna Hannan and Jen Rae who shared homemade soup and bread with guests. Tania Canas hosted Art & Action: Displacing Whiteness in the Arts, a panel exploring the intersecting role of race, gender and class in the lives of First Nations Women & Women of Colour. People were invited to be part of Sonic Hieroglyphs by Stéphanie Kabanyana Kanyandekwe, or asked to drop into the The Community Reading Room by Torika Bolatagici and browse through an extensive collective of texts that span contemporary art and theory from Oceania, Africa and the Americas. Sethembile Msezane presented Excerpts from the Past - a performance that brings together current conversations of land in relation to the colonial quest of Africa and Still Nomads closed the day with performances, spoken word and music.

Experience the many aspects of Tango, the passionate Argentine dance music, in a dazzling variety of instrumental and vocal combinations. Counterpoint, Vermont’s professional vocal ensemble, joins forces with 8 “Ocho” Cuerdas (soprano Sarah Cullins and guitarist Daniel Gaviria) and Cassotto Duo (pianist and accordionist Annemieke and Jeremiah McLane) for an unforgettable evening. Hear the complete “Estaciones Porteñas” (Four Seasons in Buenos Aires) by Ástor Piazzolla, steamy Argentine songs, excerpts from “Romancero Gitano” (Gypsy Songbook) by Mario Castelnuovo Tedesco, as well as classic and novel dances. Counterpoint Chorus – Founded by legendary choral director and arranger Robert De Cormier in 2000, and based in Montpelier, Vermont, Counterpoint is dedicated to performing choral chamber music and engaging with student musicians in Vermont and beyond. Praised for their “clarity, skill” and “sophisticated musical expressiveness,” the ensemble presents concerts throughout New England and the surrounding region, and has toured the Midwest. Counterpoint has recorded seven CDs with Albany Records and has released four further CDs independently. Their repertory ranges all over the map, including folksongs from around the world, African-American spirituals, sacred music of many traditions, and concert works by classical composers of the past and our own age. The 8 Cuerdas Duo is comprised of American soprano Sarah Cullins and Colombian guitarist Daniel Gaviria and is named for the eight “strings” that make up their two instruments and the artistic unity that this husband and wife team bring to their performances. The Burlington, Vermont-based duo recently moved to the Green Mountains from the Andes Mountains of Bogota, Colombia, where both Sarah and Daniel had busy careers as soloists and chamber musicians as well as educators. As 8 Cuerdas, Sarah and Daniel combine their classical training and experience with their love of traditional Latin American and Spanish rhythms and folklore, exploring the multiple musical identities of Latin America and the origin of many of its influences, the Iberian Peninsula. Whether recreating a soulful Argentinian Milonga, bringing out the percussiveness of the Latin American Chacarera, or drawing on the intense passion of Flamenco, the duo leads much of their classical repertoire into the world music realm, creating a wide variety of sounds and atmospheres. Cassotto Duo – Annemieke Spoelstra is a classical pianist from the Netherlands; Jeremiah McLane is an accordionist from Vermont with a background in folk and jazz. Playing together since 2010, the Vermont-based husband-and-wife duo performs classical works by European and South American composers who drew inspiration from folk melodies. Annemieke won the First Prize for the best piano-accompaniment at the Netherlands National Young Music Talent, and was a finalist at the international competition in Paris at the ‘Lily and Nadia Boulanger’ competition. Jeremiah was awarded National Public Radio’s “favorite pick” for his recording Smile When You’re Ready, and also French publication Trad Mag ‘s “BRAVO” award for his recording Hummingbird, with Ruthie Dornfeld. Together Annemieke and Jeremiah blend the earthy spirit of folk traditions and the technical skill of classical arrangements to create something that is unique and solely their own. Their program includes compositions by Astor Piazzolla, Edvard Grieg, Francis Poulenc, and Alan Hovhaness. Maurice Ravel, Anton Dvorak and Astor Piazzolla. Tickets: $20 in advance; $25 day of concert
