I, Claude Monet - Art On Screen

I, Claude Monet - Art On Screen

From award-winning director Phil Grabsky comes this fresh new look at arguably the world’s favourite artist – through his own words.

Using letters and other private writings I, Claude Monet reveals new insight into the man who not only painted the picture that gave birth to impressionism but who was perhaps the most influential and successful painter of the 19th and early 20th centuries.

Despite this, and perhaps because of it, Monet’s life is a gripping tale about a man who, behind his sun-dazzled canvases, suffered from feelings of depression, loneliness, even suicide. Then, as his art developed and his love of gardening led to the glories of his garden at Giverney, his letters reveal his humour, insight and love of life.

Shot on location in Paris, London, Normandy and Venice I, Claude Monet is a cinematic immersion into some of the most loved and iconic scenes in Western Art.

International Jazz Day is always BIG at the Theatre! This year we give a nod to FRANK SINATRA with multi-award winning jazz singer/musician & laugh-out-loud author DORIAN MODE & his swinging Jazz band.

Old Blue Eyes’ huge contribution to music with his velvety voice, phrasing and musicality sets the bar high & in his movies we see his unique gifts coalesce.

Dorian’s SCREEN SINATRA has sold out around the country exploring Sinatra’s life in film including Young At Heart, All Of Me and All The Way. The show is highly entertaining, peppered with fascinating anecdotes about Frank’s life & unique vocal approach.

‘Dorian Mode is unquestionably one of Australia’s great jazz artists.’

Joanna Weinberg "The Piano Diaries"

Joanna Weinberg "The Piano Diaries"

The Piano Diaries is a song cycle about the journey of a piano from England to South Africa and subsequently to Australia. The piano belongs to the songwriter Joanna Weinberg, who inherited it from her grandmother and brought the piano with her when she came to Sydney in 1997.

Not having had lessons since she was a teenager in South Africa, she took up lessons in Sydney and found herself flooded with memories released by the process . These memories became The Piano Diaries, an intimate musical diary from a childhood which , from the age of nine, played out during the infamous Apartheid regime.

The songs range from a terrible incident witnessed during piano practice to the genesis of the instrument itself in the death of the elephant who lost his tusks for the keys .

The stories told within the songs move from the singer’s early childhood lived under the piano of two orchestral musicians in London to the songs written in the early days of immigration when the piano was damaged on the journey to Sydney. Intimate, personal , heart wrenching and funny, the Piano Diaries offers insight into the impact of political damage on the life of a young person and also into the process of leaving that world behind for a better life.

Five-year-old Saroo finds himself alone and travelling on the wrong train away from his home in northern India. Frightened and bewildered, he ends up thousands of miles away, in chaotic Kolkata. Somehow he survives living on the streets, dodging all sorts of terrors in the process. Eventually ending up in an orphanage, Saroo is adopted by an Australian couple, and finds safety and love as he grows up in Hobart. Not wanting to hurt his adoptive parents’ feelings, he buries his past, his emotional need for reunification and his hope of ever finding his lost mother and brother. But a chance meeting with some fellow Indians reawakens his secret yearnings. With just a small store of memories, and the help of some newly-developed satellite-imaging technology, Saroo embarks on one of the greatest needle-in-a-haystack quests of modern times.

Adapted from the incredible true story ‘A Long Way Home’ by Saroo Brierly.

The Artists Garden - Art On Screen

The Artists Garden - Art On Screen

Following the smash hit Painting the Modern Garden: Monet to Matisse from Season 3 of EXHIBITION ON SCREEN comes a new film based on the hugely popular exhibition ‘The Artist’s Garden: American Impressionism and the Garden Movement’ from the Florence Griswold Museum in Connecticut, widely considered a home of American impressionism.

American impressionism took its lead from French artists like Renoir and Monet but followed its own path that over a thirty-year period reveals as much about America as a nation as it does about a much-loved artistic movement.

The story of American impressionism is closely tied to a love of gardens and a desire to preserve nature in a rapidly urbanizing nation. Travelling to studios, gardens and famous locations throughout the Eastern United States, UK and France, this mesmerising film is a feast for the eyes.
