I'm an event coordinator running regular events for The Singles Game www.thesinglesgame.com.au
The Seymour prides itself on hosting leading national and international arts companies, small and independent arts companies and providing educational programs for school students across NSW.
I was lucky enough to be invited to launch of Seymour's 2017 Season of Performances and I can't wait to see some of the shows that were showcased on the night. In fact, I'll be booking early to receive my 20% discount (book before 31 January. Use code 'SEYMOUR2017').
Here's a short run down of what's in store for the 7th year of the 'Reginald Series' which are performances from some of Australia's leading small and independent arts companies.
The Trouble with Harry - 16 Feb - 3 March The true case of Eugenia Falleni AKA Harry Crawford, a father, husband and alleged murderer that scandalised 1920s Sydney exploring ideas of gender, perversion and complicity.
It's Toby Ackland's birthday party down near the surf club—and that should mean heaps of grog, drugs and good clean fun. But by the morning a young girl is dead—raped by three boys and bashed with a rock.
They Shoot Horses, Don't They? 3 - 19 August They Shoot Horses, Don't They? plunges us with hypnotic energy into a dark and violent world where people are readily exploited for the pennies that they might bring in from a viewing audience.
The Nether 13 Sep - 7 October The Nether offers complete freedom – a new virtual wonderland providing total sensory immersion. Just log in, choose an identity and indulge your every desire. The Nether then follows an investigation into the complicated morality of identity in the digital world and explores the consequences of making dreams a reality.
No End of Blame 11 - 28 October No End of Blame is described as a sublimely playful, dangerous and pertinent political masterpiece. It contains artistic nudity in the form life model drawing, occasional strong language and some violence. Recommended for 15 and over.
You can visit the website for more on what's on in the 'Great Ideas Performance Series' which are performances engaging with some of today's most pressing issues.
And if all that doesn't inspire you to visit the Seymour next year to see a performance then how about coming along any Friday night from between 13 Jan to 17 Mar for the Courtyard Series. There'll be free live entertainment from some of Sydney's newest up and coming musicians. There's a bar and bbq and it is family and dog-friendly.
I'll see you there!
