City of Riddles

Hello hello and welcome back to

It's our first e-newsletter for the year and comes with some exciting

KAGE is now back in full swing and working hard gearing up for our
biggest year yet.

We have already celebrated our one year anniversary at the Abbotsford
Convent and launched our 2011 Program.

This KAGE Communication has all the details about the premiere season
of SUNDOWNER and chances for you to win tickets to be part of the
KAGE experience.


KAGE's newest work SUNDOWNER will be premiering at the Castlemaine
State Festival on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd April 2011. A dance theatre
work about memory, love and family.

Imagine this....

It is becoming increasingly difficult to discern the difference
between the present and the past, between what is familiar and what
is foreign. Events that took place just minutes ago are being
constantly erased, while memories that you have been able to keep at
bay for decades now come rushing towards you.

Despite the explorations of poets, novelists, doctors, scientists and
philosophers, the realm of memory remains a great mystery. KAGE, in
partnership with Alzheimer's Australia, invites you into this

This breathtaking performance traverse sorrow, fears, humor and
dignity. Through the eyes of three generations, SUNDOWNER tells the
stories of so many Australian families.

If a loved one starts to lose thier memories, what role can we play
in holding on to them? And if our parent is no longer the person we
know, how can we care for them in the present and also honour their

SUNDOWNER is a story of lament and at times grief and sorrow.
Ultimatley, though, it is a story of love: love of family, love of
history, and love of life.

Anniversary Celebrations and Program Launch

On the 22nd February 2011 KAGE celebrated our one year anniversary at
the Abbotsford Convent in the the previously unused and secret space
- the Convent Laundry. This space is yet to be renovated but
represented the possibilities of what is to come - quite fitting for
KAGE. CEO Maggie Maguire shared some kind words, enthusiastically
speaking about the anticipation that is building around SUNDOWNER and
KAGE's history of association with the Convent.

Michelle Armstrong from Arts Victoria spoke of their continuing
support and also about KAGE's journey so far. Michelle was first
introduced to KAGE when she was General Manager of Next Wave, and she
and Zane Trow programmed No (Under)standing Anytime as part of the
Festival in 2000.

Nigel Edwards, KAGE's Chair also welcomed David Doherty OAM, KAGE's
leading KAGE Companion. David will act as a mentor and guide and seek
ways to encourage the private and corporate sector to support the

Co-Creative Director Kate Denborough talked through the 2011 program
and the inspiration behind seeking out collaborators as diverse as
Paul Kelly, Helen Morse and Michael Leunig.

Thanks to everyone who attended and thanks to the Convent Bakery for
the food and drinks.

It Happened to Me

As part of the broader Castlemaine State Festival Program, Helen
Morse and Tivoli Lovely - Vicky Charleston (both performers in
SUNDOWNER) will be stepping up to the microphone to tell it like it
is in Stories From Backtage, part of the It Happened to Me series, on
Saturday 2nd April at 9:30pm.

The show behind the show - the unseen works of theatre as experienced
by the artists themselves. For one night only you wil be privy to the
world of work, machinery, anxieties, egos, disasters and triumphs, as
played out behind the proscenium arch and beyond.

This month we want to tell you a little bit more about dancer
Michelle Heaven.

Michelle is currently working with KAGE as a performer in SUNDOWNER.
But before we even premiere SUNDOWNER in April, Michelle will be
presenting her own work Disagreeable Object at Dance Massive in
Melbourne in March. What better way to get to know an artist than by
seeing their work?

Reminiscent of an old silent film in it's style and execution, this
bizarre and beautiful work sees Michelle in an unforgettable "pea de
deux" with Brian Lucas (Brian performed in KAGE's 2008 work

Melbourne DANCE MASSIVE Season:
16-19 March 2010
7:15pm and 8:00pm

Disagreeable Object will also be presented at the Castlemaine State
