Sep 21 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Batmania by The Very Good Looking Initiative @ Meet at | St Kilda | Victoria | Australia

The Very Good Looking Initiative annihilates the anticipated and confronts the norm with Batmania: a downright un-Australian, twisted horror-comedy across two events.

Loop Your Heart Out @ Alex Theatre
Sep 21 @ 7:00 pm – 9:30 pm

Two live looping artists battling it out in an epic loops-of-the-century fight to the death! Incorporating your favourite repertoire from contemporary artists such as Beyoncé and Ed Sheeran, to the classics of Toto and Phil Collins, you won’t believe what these two young musicians can achieve!

With two keyboards, looping pedals, vocal effects and beat boxing, this duo will transform your understanding of live looping with the sheer magnitude of their soundscape.

Throwing some humour and friendly competition into the mix, this show is sure to entertain even the toughest critics of live looping, revitalising and giving a new twist to a style of performance that has been growing increasingly stale in Melbourne’s pubs and bars.

Our Team!

Experienced harmony singers and capable pianists, these accomplished musicians have taken live looping to an entirely new level. You won’t believe it is all 100% live.

Frankie Jay

Frankie has a dark and mysterious background in classical music, having studied classical voice and piano at a tertiary level, she has since escaped her evil overlords and ventured onto the righteous path of contemporary and pop. She thinks of herself as a female Ed Sheeran, but with a keyboard (minus the song writing talent, but hey! she’s got red hair), and uses her training for good, instead of evil; harnessing her knowledge of harmony and texture to create only the sickest of loops.

Having a background in choral conducting and A Cappella singing, Frankie has a huge love of face-melting vocal harmonies and enjoys influences from pretty much every genre. However, if you force her to listen to country and western, she will tell you to take a long walk off of a short pier.

Jake Alexander

Combining the virtuosic piano skills of Ringo Starr with the irrepressible wit of a constipated orangutan, Jake Alexander uses his mouth not only to sing and tell bad jokes, but to produce sounds that are beyond comprehension. Using his vocal drum kit to its fullest extent, Jake’s loops take on a life of their own. With his buddies Roland the keyboard, Mac the computer and Cody the vocoder by his side, Jake redefines the concept of ‘one-man band’.

 

The Drunkards @ Alex Theatre
Sep 21 @ 8:30 pm – 10:30 pm

Golden Fleece Theatre Presents

‘The Drunkards’

Ever done something you regret?

6 August 1945, at the La Fonda Hotel in Santa Fe, New Mexico, the Manhattan Project team is gathered to celebrate the successful dropping of the first non-experimental atomic bomb over Hiroshima. The partakers of this macabre dinner party are the scientists, led by J. Robert Oppenheimer who, over the years prior to the mission, have been working on achieving nuclear fission in order to make the construction of the bomb possible.

As the night progresses, the eight scientists – amongst whom are some Nobel Prize laureates – plus Mrs Oppenheimer and General Groves of the U.S. Army, become more and more intoxicated, trying to come to terms with the consequences of their actions.

Did they just do what had to be done, in order to win the war?

Or did they irremediably abuse the power of science?

Acclaimed Spanish playwright Antonio Álamo’s award-winning play, ‘The Drunkards’ will challenge the audience with its confronting moral questions, and force them to look in the eye of the tragic, still too relevant legacy of those events.

An Australian premiere, The Drunkards is also the first production of newly founded Golden Fleece Theatre, an independent theatre company committed to bring little known international works to the Australian public, in collaboration with the Embassy of Spain in Australia.

Warning: Contains sudden loud noises, potentially triggering content or themes, including Emotional Abuse, Alcohol Use, War, Smoking on Stage.

 

 

This event is part of the 2019 Melbourne Fringe Festival at Alex Theatre St Kilda.

The Market Is A Wind-Up Toy by The Bloomshed @ Theatre Works
Sep 21 @ 9:00 pm – 10:00 pm
The Market Is A Wind-Up Toy by The Bloomshed @ Theatre Works | St Kilda | Victoria | Australia

The Market Is A Wind-up Toy – the latest piece of protest theatre from The Bloomshed, creators of ‘The Nose’ (Winner, Festival Director’s Award, Sydney Fringe 2017).

In the highest tower on the highest hill in the richest country in the world™ the five most powerful IKEA executives are enjoying the fruits of their labour. Their flat packable furniture has spread across the world. They have revolutionised what it means to be HUMAN, what it is to be FREE. They are the Gentlemen of the Enlightenment.

Then the market collapses. The GOLDEN BULL enters ready to explode his brains all over. It’s the end of the world sale. All things reduced to clear. Time to take stock of what we have and flog it till it stops breathing. Contain the damage. Bail out the banks. Leading economists jump out of skyscraper windows, the GOLDEN BULL is put down. Bit by bit the IKEA CORPORATION falls to pieces, till all that’s left is one pathetic soy-boy customer service representative: Arvid Flatpack. He has to fix it. He must journey down to the darkest recesses of hell to resurrect the only system that works. CAPITALISM!

Born out of the wintry depths of a suburban backyard shed, contemporary Melbourne theatre group The Bloomshed bring their latest work to Theatre Works. Winning the Critic’s Pick at Sydney Fringe Festival 2018, The Market is BACK. Emerging writer and theatre maker, James Jackson, in collaboration with the Bloomshed, has taken inspiration from Dante’s inferno and transformed it a diatribe against rampant free market capitalism.

The Bloomshed creates cutting edge, political theatre. Reinvigorating classic texts through a combination of new writing and devising, The Market is a Wind-up Toy is the company’s latest attempt to make something new by cannibalising the old.
