Founded by Isolte Avila and David Bower, Signdance Collective is an award winning international touring performance established in 2001. The company is culturally diverse with a team of experienced deaf and disabled artists at the helm. From 1987 to 2000, the company directors pioneered “signdance theatre”, a fusion of sign theatre, dance and live original music. The company is one of the first in the world to utilise and introduce the concept of inclusive practice with a specific focus on disability-deaf led team work.

The production of Carthage/Cartagena is funded, in part, by Arts Council England.

The kiss of a stranger awakens the desire and creativity of a middle-aged wife, mother, teacher, and writer; launching her on a journey exploring a life outside conventional marriage, motherhood, and sexual appetite. Her identity fragments as she embarks on a sexual odyssey filled with risk, questioning, and confused boundaries. In wandering, how can she put down roots, find a voice, and craft a new story of herself and those with who she shares a kinship?

Nothing Special will take you into the world of Edie Sedgwick, the 1960’s New York socialite and Andy Warhol’s first underground superstar. A lifestyle full of decadence, self- indulgence, drugs and desperation, watch as we chronicle a day in the life of “one of the most famous people in the world”. We invite you to attend a night of theater, art, and music as we delve into the unique culture of Warhol’s factory.

Deed_DoneAmerican Brownie Productions presents
June 6 – 10 | Tuesday & Thursday at 8pm, Saturday at 2pm
Tickets: $20 HERE

The Deed is Done is dramedy narrated by a mid-twenties virgin who went around New York City interviewing people to figure out the social norms of losing one’s virginity. It explores the awkwardness and societal pressure which comes with losing one’s virginity. The show captures the essence of the emotional and psychological impact that the ‘first time’ has on individuals of all walks of life.

The narrator, a goody-goody virgin, adds humor, juxtaposing the sometimes serious stories of her more sexually adventurous peers. The Deed Is Done allows the audience to reminisce about their own first-time experiences, while also showing virgins in the audience that they are not outsiders.   

Although everyone has a different ‘first-time’ story, these stories still connect us as human beings. The Deed is Done explores diverse voices and embraces sexuality, while simultaneously exploring what ‘virginity’, means, both in relation to identity and humanity.
