A+G’s 2017 Artistic Program: Season Two

Wednesday, 19 July 2017

It’s here! Ainslie and Gorman Arts Centres’ SEASON TWO 2017 artistic program has officially landed. Read online or pick up a copy at one of our arts centres, or various places around town.

Here’s what our Creative Producers have to say:

Welcome to the Season 2 Program! Join us on the edge, where you’ll find new ideas and experiences shaped by artists and creatives driven by a passion for discovery and invention.

A new initiative for 2017, our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Residency Program developed in collaboration with Big hART, will explore deeply rooted connections to lands and waters near and far.

Our flagship performance program, Ralph Indie takes flight from September, presenting compelling new works in partnership with bold, daring creatives. Ralph Indie is independent theatre at its best, meeting feminism on a deserted desert highway, asking what it means to be a man and powering a collision of choreography and composition.

In the heart of winter, explore the unexpected at our performance art party Canberra Obscura: Metropolis. Soak up the intercultural musical explorations of Way Out West and the Australian Art Orchestra’s Water Pushes Sand. Encounter the unique meeting of viola de gamba and iPad with Andromeda is Coming, or creep into Schallen: the sound and aura of Nosteratu, a supremely gothic affair from musical duo, Tess Said So.

Providing meaningful support for artists is our foundation, and in July we’ll rock out with the Girls Rock! Camp, before anticipating nascent brilliance from artists working on new creations through Flash Residencies and supported project developments.

In spring our Centres will come alive with celebrations of diversity, culture and community including the Ainslie and Gorman Arts Centres Open Day, the beloved AIDS Action Council Fair Day, Day of the Dead Fiesta and Music for Canberra’s Choir Capital.

We can’t wait to experience it all with you!
