20:30 - EVENT - Picasso's Goldfinch : Written by Tom Jeffcote Directed by Lawrie Cullen-Tait Website | More Information
“…They should put out the eyes of painters as they do goldfinches In order that they can sing better’’ -Pablo Picasso

Once renowned Australian artist Wilson Stryker has lost his creative spark. Wilson is uninspired and exasperated. A serendipitous meeting with Therese, a journalist hungry for a scoop, precipitates an unexpected meeting of the minds. As their connection intensifies, together they explore the truth that underpins his creativity. Gripping, intimate and tragic, this is an unforgettable tale of transformation.

PICASSO'S GOLDFINCH is a two-hander play performed by Andrew Hale and Tiffany Barton, written by local playwright Tom Jeffcote and directed by the acclaimed Lawrie Cullen-Tait. Tom Jeffcote's previous work TOUGH LOVE received nominations for best actor and director. Tom Jeffcote was a UWA graduate and was enchanted by the English studies he undertook whilst at UWA.

Lawrie Cullen-Tait considers PICASSO'S GOLDFINCH as "a rare gift to any artist and is so beautiful that I don't doubt that it will be staged many times around the world."

Picasso’s Goldfinch has been selected by the Art Gallery of WA for a special CollaborART performance on Picasso’s birthday, 25 October 2012, to coincide with their major exhibition from New York’s Museum of Modern Art - Picasso to Warhol: Fourteen Modern Masters.Tickets for this one-off performance available through Ticketek.com.au or the AGWA ticket desk.

19:30 - PERFORMANCE - M. Butterfly by David Henry Hwang : A sensational story of lust, politics, and betrayal that challenges ideas of gender, culture and sexuality. Website | More Information
This imaginative and at times shocking play is one of the most celebrated of recent American plays, and the first by an Asian-American to win universal acclaim.

Bored with his routine posting in Beijing, and awkward with women, French diplomat Rene Gallimard is easy prey for the subtle, delicate charms of Song Liling, a Chinese opera star who personifies Gallimard’s fantasy vision of submissive, exotic oriental sexuality. She is to him, the ‘perfect woman,’ yet this Chinese butterfly of his passions is ultimately revealed to be far more than she seems. Gallimard begins a twenty-year affair with ‘her,’ during which time he passes along diplomatic secrets, an act which brings on his downfall and imprisonment.

Weaving into the play many parallels with, and ultimately ironic reversals of, Puccini’s opera, Madame Butterfly, Hwang explores the stereotypes that underlie, distort and threaten relations between Eastern and Western culture, and between men and women. It is powerful metaphor for the exploration of deep themes; the perception of Eastern culture by the West, and the persistent romanticism which clouds and inhibits that perception.

The multi-award-winning play is a brilliant theatrical tour de force, which, in its Broadway production, became an immediate critical and popular success.
