Looking for great ideas this weekend?


TO KILL A CASSOWARY - Bulmba-ja Arts Centre

Old Amos leads an eccentric life hidden deep in the tropical rainforest of Far North Queensland’s Cassowary Coast. He’s a bohemian eco-warrior, a spiritual eclectic and a cantankerous loner but for the occasional visit from his mysterious neighbour, Josie. His idyllic existence living amongst the Orange-footed Scrub Fowl and the elusive Cassowary, however, is endangered when his estranged daughter Paula moves in. She has her eyes on his precious real estate. She has plans. Over my dead body, thinks Amos. He may be right.

Friday and Saturday night

LIFE WITHOUT ME - Rondo Theatre

“My life just seems to go on, but without me in it.” If you don’t know who you are and you don’t know where you’re headed, you might find yourself spiralling in ever-tightening circles until you come to rest in a nondescript part of town; in a crummy two-star hotel, where the service is churlish, the lift doesn’t work, the toast is burnt and the pot plants set off your allergies. But! Keep our expectations low, really low, and who knows? You might be pleasantly surprised by how everything works out.

Friday & Saturday night 8pm 

Rondo Theatre

JUSTICIA by Bonemap Exhibition

In July 2019, Bonemap (media designer, Russell Milledge and dancer, Rebecca Youdell) joined with Indigenous artist, Zane Saunders to create performative and photographic works during the transition of the Court House. The resulting, large format photographs and footage offer audiences a sense of the building as it was immediately prior to restoration.The artists’ intention was to explore shared social and cultural histories. Justicia (the virtue known as Lady Justice) is an allegorical personification of the moral force in judicial systems, originating in antiquity. Bonemap have documented other sites in transition including Brisbane Powerhouse.
