FIRESTARTER – THE STORY OF BANGARRA

FIRESTARTER – THE STORY OF BANGARRA

FIRESTARTER – THE STORY OF BANGARRA

Presented by Metro Arts and Brisbane International Film Festival
With a special in-person introduction by Wesley Enoch, AM

This remarkable film documentary celebrates the 30th anniversary of Australia’s most iconic performing arts company: Bangarra Dance Theatre.

Firestarter – The Story of Bangarra is a historically important film that takes the viewer through Bangarra’s birth and spectacular growth. It recognises Bangarra’s early founders and tells the story of how three young Aboriginal brothers – Stephen, David and Russell Page – turned the newly born dance group into one of Australia’s leading performing arts companies.

Through the eyes of the Page brothers and company alumni, Firestarter explores the loss and reclaiming of culture, the burden of intergenerational trauma and crucially, the extraordinary power of art as a messenger for social change and healing.

This special community screening is made possible by Metro Arts in partnership with Brisbane International Film Festival. The film will be introduced by Metro Arts patron and star of the film Wesley Enoch AM.

“What an experience. What a joy. I’ve watched it twice, and on both occasions emerged deeply moved..” – ★★★★★ The Guardian

THE ARTISTS

The Architects of Sound
The Architects of Sound are an established Brisbane-based alternative, independent electronic trash trio whose native, instrumental sound was forged in a West End garage during a fierce electrical storm in 2012. Maintaining an anti-careerist, anti-music industry attitude, the trio rose to public recognition in early 2013 after a rare underground showcase of a compilation demo-tape went viral on Vine, garnering strong positive critical acclaim in numerous underground Brisbane music zines. Regarded for their minimalist, stripped-down vocal style, meditative and organic post-electro anthems and low-fi music aesthetic, the trio have released their EP The Holy Trinity (2016), and begun work on their second debut album ARTFAP to be released exclusively through Limewire; a sonic exploration of the abstract concepts of divinity, desire and sacrifice in contemporary art culture.

MECHANICS OF ADAPTION

Presented by Metro Arts and Brisbane Festival

Brisbane’s hottest contemporary artists give up-cycling new meaning in this innovative exhibition.

In 1913 Marcel Duchamp created the work Bicycle Wheel, a work that changed the course of contemporary art by elevating ordinary objects to the status of art. 

In 2021, after 10 successful years and four million trips, the Brisbane CityCycle program is ending. In a fascinating new Metro Arts Commission, our retired CityCycles are reimagined by artists Ross Manning, Kinly Grey, Susan Hawkins, Aishla Manning and Sarah Poulgrain, in collaboration with young people through Traction.

The pieces will be shown across Metro Arts’ galleries with an additional large-scale outdoor temporary artwork in the surrounding area, as a reflection of both art history and the urgent issues of the need for environmental awareness and sustainability.

Karul Projects

Presented by Metro Arts and Brisbane Festival

Karul’s signature sharp movement and humour will challenge what you think you know about shapeshifting.

Bones break, blood boils and bodies morph as the dingo howls deep into the night. Always watching, the wedge-tailed eagle carries generational knowledge on its wingspan. A colony of jittery ants explore new terrain, peering into every nook and cranny. And the Lyre, bird imitating art? Or appropriating its true purpose. Can you relate?

Come in, grab a biccy and a cuppa. All shapes and kinds are accepted here, this is a safe space and not your usual support group.

Through Karul’s signature sharp movement, combined with text, song and projections, they challenge what you think you know about shapeshifting.

If you’re ready to join the support group, wear your animal loud and proud. Dress in your fur, fleece or feathers; your beaks, claws or tails. All animal outfits are welcome whether it be cloaks, coats, make up, or masks.

& OTHER KINDS OF LOVE

Luka Lesson

Presented by Metro Arts and Brisbane Festival

This century-hopping journey with the gods will make you fall in love with love all over again.

Australian poet and rapper, Luka Lesson, will fire up your heart and imagination with this powerful performance on love and affection, accompanied by cinematic scores and hip hop composed by Sydney Conservatorium of Music’s James Humberstone.

Inspired by his Greek heritage, Luka’s poignant poetry delves into selflove, erotic love, the love of strangers, the love of deep friendships and the ultimate agapi in this modern exploration of Plato’s The Symposium.

 

“Luka is masterful in his ability to weave words into heartbreaking, near cinematic life. The only sounds outside the music and the poetry were the gasps of the audience and a well-earned standing ovation.” – SCENESTR MAGAZINE

THIS AIN’T NO PUSSY SHOW

THIS AIN’T NO PUSSY SHOW

THIS AIN’T NO PUSSY SHOW

By Kate Harman with Toby Angus

Presented by Metro Arts and Brisbane Festival

Ever wondered if patriarchy was a pyramid scheme for men?

Kate has, and she ain’t pussying around; she has a boy to raise and he has questions.

Why are you shouting?

Am I really toxic?

How come you can say dick but I can’t say pussy?

Using text, movement, skateboarding, map-making and rap music This Ain’t No Pussy Show takes a poetic and personal dive into the relationship between mother and son.

It’s a messy, wild, unpredictable, and sometimes foolish terrain – this is their map, a navigation of danger and misunderstanding.

THE MAKING OF MEN

THE MAKING OF MEN

THE MAKING OF MEN

WOW (Women of the World) Australia

Presented by Metro Arts and Brisbane Festival

How can we overturn cultural pressures and traditions, and raise men who are happy, emotionally secure, capable of love and tears? 

As every parent will attest, somewhere along the way, loving little boys learn a whole set of rules about what it takes to be a man – often with disastrous consequences for themselves, their loved ones, and their communities.

How can we overturn this cultural pressure and tradition, and raise men who are happy, emotionally secure, capable of love and tears? Bystander trainer Michael Jeh will lead this conversation with men making this change, including journalist David Leser, Men4Respect Coordinator for YFS Andrew Taukolo, and newly appointed MATE Ambassador Rhys Carroll.

This event is AUSLAN Interpreted.

Presented by Metro Arts 

Grab your pals for a rollicking night out, this festival-fav is back with a nostalgia-blaring homage to the humble leotard and its epic transformational possibilities.

Two of Australia’s most fearless physical comedians, Bridget Boyle and Neridah Waters, present this joyous celebration of performance, body-positivity and glitter.

“A true master-class in physical comedy and storytelling.
Nothing Ever Happens in Brisbane
