19:30 - PERFORMANCE - Shakespeare's Love's Labour's Lost : Shakespeare's most literary comedy Website | More Information
‘These are barren tasks, too hard to keep, Not to see ladies, study, fast, not sleep!’

The beautiful Elizabethan style New Fortune Theatre at the University of Western Australia with its resident peacocks is the perfect setting for Shakespeare’s most beautifully lyrical play, Love’s Labour’s Lost, an extravaganza of wordplay and wit, glowing with lush language and romantic tomfoolery.

The Graduate Dramatic Society’s Sixtieth Anniversary production is directed by Grant Malcolm, the Award-winning director of the inaugural GRADS’ Summer Shakespeare season.

Hilarious and highly entertaining, this boisterous comedy delights with its excruciating cross-purposes and impersonations, drunkenness, bust ups and pratfalls.

No sooner have the young king and his courtiers at the court of Navarre zealously vowed to give up good living and women for three years to focus on serious study, than temptation arrives in the form of the Princess of France and her very attractive, very intelligent, and very saucy entourage – and the young men find their pulse rates soaring!

Infatuation, adolescent pranks and playful confusion lead to more serious matters, revealing the cost of real love.

This, Shakespeare’s most intellectual comedy, is also a joyous celebration of language, groaning with puns, rhymes, bizarre syntax, grotesque coinages and parodies.

The artists-in-labs program, based in Zurich Switzerland started as a pilot project in 2003 to place artists into Swiss scientific research environments. The program examines current debates and discourses that can help art and science gain a closer understanding of each other. As well as her projects, “The Electric Retina” and “Dermaland”, Jill will present on the work of artists based in the artists-in-lab program and their collaborating research centres. These projects, research directives and residencies are designed to inspire artists to create new works of complexity and address the relevant issues about scientific discovery for society.
