15:00 - PUBLIC TALK - Can science be successfully 'performed' or are we just kidding ourselves? : Public talk with Vivienne Glance Website | More Information
If theatre is conceit, can science really be performed or are playwrights and performance makers up to something else?

Vivienne Glance has recently returned from a writer's residency with The Arts Catalyst London and will share that experience with you as well as outline some of the writing techniques, provocations and dramaturgy behind successful science plays and performance works. She will also talk about her own works, Staring at the Sun, which had a reading in London in 2012, and The Cat in the Box, which performed to full houses at The Blue Room Theatre in WA this year.

Vivienne Glance is a writer and theatre practitioner with over 20 years experience. She also has a Bachelor of Science degree. Combining science and performance has been a focus of her theatre practice for many years, and she recently consolidated this through her PhD research.

Following their hugely successful tour last year, two of Australia's most loved female artists – songstress Katie Noonan and classical guitarist Karin Schaupp – are teaming up once again, this time exploring music close to home and very close to their hearts in an intimate performance in the stunning Winthrop Hall.

Songs of the Southern Skies features some of Australia and New Zealand's best classical, folk, jazz and pop songs. The songs are performed with the intimate combination of Noonan's angelic and versatile voice and Schaupp's lyrical and fiery guitar.

Noonan and Schaupp will perform songs by the Finn Brothers, Cold Chisel, Nick Cave, Icehouse, Bic Runga, Gurrumul, The Easybeats, Vince Jones and Gotye, through to traditional folk songs, a piece by Richard Charlton and a world premiere composition by Elena Kats-Chernin written especially for them.

A feast for lovers of all styles of music, this collaboration brings together two artists at the top of their game, true masters of their fields.

The Callaway Lecture is one of the most prestigious events on the School of Music calendar.

HIP: The Next Generation

After 60 years of the most recent movement in music scholarship and performance concerned with Historically Informed Performance (HIP), this talk explores where has such research brought us and where is it going? The continuing mission seems to be to seek out new sources, new information: 'to boldly go' where no HIP has gone before. In order to trace these achievements, an exploration of early sound recordings perhaps offers us some insights?

The evening is co-sponsored by ARC Centre for the History of Emotions.

20:00 - PERFORMANCE - Marney McQueen : Is a Rump Steak at a Vegan Barbeque Website | More Information
In this fresh and hilarious cabaret, the ever-surprising triple threat Marney McQueen spills the dirt from behind the theatrical curtain. As a leading lady in the big gay musicals Hairspray and Priscilla Queen of the Desert, this single girl felt like a juicy rump steak at a vegan BBQ. Trading men and mating for sequins and showboys, here is the musical story of a globe-trotting starlet who found no Sex in the Cities. Not a sausage.

Hot-on-the-heels of sell-out character cabaret shows in Melbourne, Sydney, London, Edinburgh and New York, Rump Steak showcases Marney's hilarious songwriting and character observations as she presents her first-ever Australian cabaret show as herself… with a little help from celebrity beautician Rosa Waxoffski and friends. This show was a sell out in its recent London season and is now heading to Perth for ONE NIGHT ONLY!

SPECIAL TICKET OFFER FOR UWA STAFF: $40 tickets (save $10!) Discounted tickets can only be purchased at the door. Box Office open from 7pm.

‘Marney McQueen is a force to be reckoned with.’ The Age.

‘There is something in the theatre called a triple threat, performers who can sing, dance and act. If there is something beyond that, it's Marney McQueen.’ The West Australian. ‘A sure fire hit’. Edinburgh Guide.

‘Marney McQueen is a true chameleon entertainer. She is also hilariously funny.’ Jacki Weaver.

‘She has the goods.’ Barry Humphries.
