Baulkham Hills African Ladies Troupe

  • Orana Cinemas Geraldton

THE BAULKHAM HILLS AFRICAN LADIES TROUPE is a celebration of the remarkable spirits of four African women survivors of sexual abuse, and the triumph of their improbable theatre troupe.
Four women fled from different parts of Africa to Australia in order to escape violence and abuse. They find a safe haven in Australia, but still they hold their pain silently within them. Until they decide to join a theatre group… and speak out. Under the nurturing guidance of theatre director Ros Horin, they collaborate to let their life stories be transformed into an extraordinary and joyously uplifting theatrical experience. This film charts their personal journeys from trauma to healing and public triumphs, as the Troupe’s show moves from a stage in western Sydney out to the world.

Seussical - Musical Theatre Production

  • Strathalbyn Christian College - College Hall

Stratheatre presents Seussical.
A musical perfect for the whole family, Seussical takes us into the world of Dr. Seuss, where we revisit beloved characters including The Cat in the Hat, Horton the Elephant, Gertrude McFuzz, Lazy Mayzie, and JoJo. The Cat in the Hat guides us into The Jungle of Nool where we see Horton, the kind hearted elephant who discovers a speck of dust containing Whoville. He meets JoJo, a Who child sent to military school for thinking too many “thinks.”Horton decides he must protect the speck of dust on a nearby clover, while at the same time protecting an abandoned egg left to his care by the lazy Mayzie la Bird. Horton tries to convince the other animals in The Jungle of the existence of the Whos, but he is ridiculed and put on trial for insanity. Only his loyal neighbor,Gertrude McFuzz, never loses faith in him. Eventually, the two fall in love. Now one of the most widely produced musicals in the country, Seussical weaves a story of friendship, loyalty and love. Despite all odds, Horton and Gertrude band together to save the Whos, free Horton, and restore peace and unity to the Jungle of Nool. Charming Seussical teaches us the power of being unique, and the importance of fighting for your beliefs.
Two shows - 12noon and 7pm. 
Thursday 15th June and Friday 16th June.
Show duration is 1.5hrs with an intermission.

Referendum for Social Change 1967 - 2017

  • 189 Marine Terrace Geraldton, Western Australia 6530

Yamaji Art's exhibition at ACDC in June is a response to the 1967 Referendum 50th Anniversary. The National Archives of Australia document the 27 May 1967 Federal referendum determined "whether two references in the Australian Constitution, which discriminated against Aboriginal people, should be removed.

The sections of the Constitution under scrutiny were:

51. The Parliament shall, subject to this Constitution, have power to make laws for the peace, order, and good government of the Commonwealth with respect to:-
...(xxvi) The people of any race, other than the aboriginal people in any State, for whom it is necessary to make special laws.

127. In reckoning the numbers of the people of the Commonwealth, or of a State or other part of the Commonwealth, aboriginal natives should not be counted.

The removal of the words ‘… other than the aboriginal people in any State…' in section 51(xxvi) and the whole of section 127 were considered by many to be representative of the prevailing movement for political change within Indigenous affairs. As a result of the political climate, this referendum saw the highest YES vote ever recorded in a Federal referendum, with 90.77 per cent voting for change." (Source National Archives of Australia) http://www.naa.gov.au/collection/fact-sheets/fs150.aspx

The Yamaji Art exhibition in June explores artists response to the referendum and the 50th anniversary. "1967 saw a silence in Geraldton around the 1967 Referendum, the local mainstream newspaper did not find the event newsworthy, unlike other parts of Australia with the visible groundswell of support for improving in the conditions of Aboriginal people in Australia.

Yamaji Art will continue to silence the silence by exhibiting art works created by local Aboriginal people – these artworks will range from installations, youth artworks, digital image and paintings- 50 years after the Referendum the Aboriginal voice is visible and strong in Geraldton." Charmaine Green, 2017.

Please join us for opening night Wednesday 7th June 5:30pm. The exhibition will run until Sunday 25th June. All enquiries can be forwarded to info@acdc.org.au and/or projects@yamajiart.com.
