BUDDHIST EXHIBITION 2017 : UNCOVERING THE LIGHT OF BUDDHISM

Buddhist Exhibition is an exhibition that  has been organised by the University of NSW Buddhist Society (UNIBUDS) to showcase Buddhist artefacts and artworks to the public.

In accordance with this year’s theme, “Uncovering the Light of Buddhism”,  the exhibition will explore the original purpose and meaning behind some Buddhist artefacts, by delving into the influence of time and culture in shaping the current perceptions of these artefacts.

How did Buddhism come about? What items did monks use back in the day of the Buddha? Who distilled the Buddha’s teachings from oral communication into written form and how were they recorded? Come and find out as you navigate your way through artefacts and exhibits as art, history and Buddhism intertwine.             Continue reading BUDDHIST EXHIBITION 2017 : UNCOVERING THE LIGHT OF BUDDHISM

STUDENT TROUPE IN GOOD COMPANY WITH SONDHEIM

Timeless and evocative, Stephen Sondheim’s 7 time Tony Award Winner COMPANY is regarded as one of the great modern musicals.

On the night of his 35th birthday, confirmed bachelor, Robert, contemplates his unmarried state. Over the course of a series of dinners, drinks and even a wedding, his friends force the habitually single Robert to question his rigid bachelorhood during a hilarious array of interactions.

COMPANY features a brilliantly brisk and energetic score containing many of Sondheim’s best known songs including the renowned finale Being Alive. With discussions about marriage, divorce, homosexuality and commitment, COMPANY is a sophisticated and honest look at modern adult relationships.

COMPANY will be playing between Tuesday 4th April and Saturday 8 April at STUDIO ONE, UNSW : Tuesday to Friday at 7.30 pm and a Saturday matinee at 2 pm.

NUTS GOES FARCICAL WITH ‘MY LITTLE DOLL’ @ STUDIO ONE, UNSW

My Little Doll Family Portrait -pic By Viviana Barrero

New South Wales University Theatrical Society’s (NUTS) upcoming production is a contemporary farce by Uruguayan playwright Gabriel Calderón, MY LITTLE DOLL (THE FARCE) centres around a dysfunctional middle upper class family where a young woman becomes a pawn in an elaborate revenge plot by her uncle against her father. Narrated by the family’s butler, this dark comedy dances between “burlesque and grotesque” as the daughter adopts her doll as an alter ego.

Translated into English by Veronica Barac, the frenetic rhythm of this controversial dark comedy takes you on a powerful journey into the fragmented psyches of these very twisted characters. The original Spanish production Mi Muñequita (La Farsa), shocked and delighted audiences all over Latin America and now it is our pleasure to bring this story to Australian audiences for the first time.

This play contains themes of child abuse, domestic violence, murder and suicide.

SEASON DETAILS :-
18th – 22nd October; 18th-21st 7.00pm, 22nd 2.00pm at Studio 1, Gate 2, University Of New South Wales.

‘Once upon a time’ … Stephen Sondheim’s treasured music theatre favourite INTO THE WOODS (Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, Book by James Lapine, originally directed on Broadway by James Lapine) delivers its take on precisely all that happens after ‘Happily Ever After’ and yes indeed ‘the truth hurts’.

A modern politically corrected twist is applied to well-known classic fairy-tales, with a terrific cast of great voices who each evoke exactly the right mood during their performances. The original fairy tale of a childless baker and his wife who had been cursed by a witch, has been combined with the Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk, Little Red Riding Hood and Rapunzel fairy tales.          Continue reading NUTS PRESENTS INTO THE WOODS @ LEND LEASE THEATRE DARLING HARBOUR
