Three Birds One Cock

As Alfred Hitchcock and his films are iconic and influential points in pop culture and film history, Three Birds One Cock is a show that takes his famous heroines and gives them stories of their own, with a contemporary punch and a dose of dark-humoured comedy.

A bit about the show!
Three of Alfred Hitchcock’s iconic blondes from Vertigo, Psycho and The Birds find themselves trapped in an absurd “whodunnit” murder mystery. Something sinister is lurking in the shadows and things are not quite what they seem.

Terrified that any one of them could be the next victim, these blondes must use their feminine charm and cunning skills to unravel a storyline much darker than they realize, tumbling towards morbid endings of their own.

Footsteps! Gunshots! Lingerie! Deception! Will all go to plan for these strong-willed bombshells?

A black comedy dripping with noir, glamour, murder and suspense.

Varietyville

Two ʻmust seeʼ artists of outrageously funny proportions combining their talents into one incredible show for your pleasure!

Starring award winning, five star internationally renowned physical comedian Daniel Oldaker aka “Dandyman” (La Soireé, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Melb. Int Comedy Fest) and the inimitable circus variety star Rani Huszar, as seen on ABC’s “Live at the Memo”, “The Sideshow” and the world renowned variety show La Cliqué.

Varietyville is based around two characters. One wants to present meaningful art that has a message whilst the other loves creating entertainment that is accessible to everyone. It’s art versus entertainment, variety with vavoom.

Varietyville takes variety to a whole new level. Bite sized morsels of masterful magic, chaotic clowning, preposterous physical feats, musical mayhem, hilarious hi-jinks and much, much more!

The Kutcha Edwards Hour

The Kutcha Edwards Hour is an invitation to be immersed in the lifelong experiences of a Stolen Generations member through songs and stories. Kutcha’s path has taken him from a child institutionalised to winning the Melbourne Prize for Music. Kutcha is a story teller and, using these skills, he delivers a concert that proves to be both riveting and enriching. 

Removed from his family and culture, he has recaptured his Songline and spends his life casting ‘pebbles in to the pond’, creating wave upon wave of cultural awareness through his music and performance charisma.

Writing music and singing have been Kutcha’s lifeline as well as a continuation of his Songline. Throughout the hour with Kutcha the audience will hear firsthand how it was growing up as an Aboriginal in a land that did not recognise his people as citizens of their own country.

Kutcha’s songs are incredibly moving and personal, including a song written about the time he turned 18 and was freed from State care, despite having returned to his Mother at the age of 14 after removal at 18 months. Kutcha sings of the impact of Government policies of removal and assimilation on his people and the ramifications that have pervaded the wellbeing of Aboriginal people since.

Humour also plays a strong role alongside his songs, playfully engaging his audience throughout the hour. Kutcha presents an inclusive and inviting conversation with the audience, while also provoking emotive responses to his personal story, that of his family and his community.

Each show concludes with the singing of what is virtually an anthem, the beautiful song Yil Lul by Jo Geia. The audience is invited to sing together and are left feeling they’ve had a positive experience, and their cultural awareness heightened.
