LAWRENCE GRAZIOSE WORKSHOPS

THE ENNEAGRAM WEEKEND WORKSHOP Sat 8 – Sun 9 March

WISDOM & COMPASSION WEEKEND WORKSHOP Sat 15 – Sun 16 March

In 2004, 2006 and 2007, Zen Zen Zo Physical Theatre hosted exciting weekend workshops with Lawrence Graziose from the USA, a renowned teacher of The Enneagram and of the Zen Buddist/Taoist View of Human Nature. We are pleased to welcome him back in 2008 and he has suggested that this may be his last visit to Australia for a while due to exciting opportunities available to him in the USA…so this may be your last chance!

THE ENNEAGRAM WEEKEND WORKSHOP Sat 8 – Sun 9 March (10AM – 5PM)

The Enneagram is an ancient psychological model which analyses personality types, ego structures and behaviours. It will look at nine ego-fixations which can create suffering in our daily lives and it offers ‘antidotes’ which can counteract the tendency to follow these ego-habits. It proves to be very useful for our work as actors investigating human nature and for our own personal development.

WISDOM & COMPASSION WEEKEND WORKSHOP Sat 15 – Sun 16 March (10AM – 5PM)

The section on wisdom will focus on spiritual practices that are designed to create an open and expanded mind. The section on Compassion will focus on practices that are designed to open the heart centre to the ‘service of others’. Both sets of practices help us to find true happiness in our lives.

WHERE: 82 Twilight St, Kenmore

COST: THE ENNEAGRAM WEEKEND WORKSHOP: $200
WISDOM & COMPASSION WORKSHOP: $100/DAY OR $175 WEEKEND

Electro-Rock Night At The Step Inn - Super Massive + Elation + Dance In Circles DJs

Super Massive were awarded the Best Alternative Artist Award at the 2007 MusicOz Awards in November, for their evocative and as-yet-unreleased synth/rock song “Fists”, which you can sneak preview on the band’s myspace page at http://www.myspace.com/supermassivesounds.

The band is the songwriting co-project of drummer/composer Glenn Abbott (formerly of ARIA winning band Machine Gun Fellatio & his own solo project The Bryan Ferrysexual Experience) and singer/writer Malina Hamilton-Smith.

Together with electric bass genius John D. Young (Chuck Berry, Marcia Hines, Vanda & Young) and talented young guitarist Marc Malouf, the four deliver a powerful and entertaining show that seamlessly blends loops, synths, electro sounds, deep funkiness and the lustiness of a full-blooded rock band, in creative and catchy, pop-structured songs.

BEN FROST + CHRIS CORSANO + LAWRENCE ENGLISH microMONO at the IMA, 19 January, 2008 (Brisbane)

That's right, Iceland resident and current heartthrob of the European post-electronic sound BEN FROST is headed to Brisbane for his first show in many years! His album Theory Of Machines has created quite a stir and this, added to the recently repressed Steelwound (his ROOM40 debut) seems to be only further proof that Frost is really onto something unique with his densely textured works.

Not only that, but we can also now confirm that percussionist CHRIS CORSANO will be joining the bill. From rolling with the Free-folk scene (Sunburned Hand of The Man/MV +EE, Tower Recordings), through Free Jazz (Evan Parker/John Edwards + Paul Flaherty), Noise (Vampire Belt/Jim O/Thurston Moore/Dream Aktion Unit +++) and onto the big stages playing in Björk's live band, Corsano has lit sparks of invention in every instance. His solo sets are jaw-dropping displays of not only technical prowess but advanced musicality.

LAWRENCE ENGLISH joins these two monsters of sound to deliver a set in celebration of the launch of his latest record on Sirr Records - 'IT'S UP TO US TO LIVE'. Following a 5 week stint in Europe in November and December 2007, he'll deliver a slab of new sound and debut some new pieces from future releases due mid 2008.

In all an evening not to be missed (!!!) at the IMA on Saturday January 19th from 8pm - it's going to be dense, delicate, fierce and loud! Something for everyone!

Andy Warhol retrospective in Brisbane 8 Dec 2007 - 30 Mar 2008 @ GOMA

Exclusive to Brisbane, Australia's first major Andy Warhol retrospective brings together more than 300 works spanning all areas of his practice from the 1950s until his death in 1987 — paintings, drawings, prints, sculptures, photographs, films, videos and installations.

One of the most influential and important artists of the late twentieth century and the figurehead of Pop art, Andy Warhol created some of the most recognisable images of modern culture. The exhibition includes his important 'Death in America' works; iconic images of Marilyn Monroe, Jackie Onassis, Mao Zedong and Elvis Presley; and his Campbell's soup cans. The exhibition will show for the first time in Australia Warhol's early commercial work, Interview magazine as well as his late monumental paintings. 'Andy Warhol' will also investigate how the artist represented himself through his art practice, including his Self-Portrait paintings, Time Capsules, drawings, films and videos.

In addition to works from The Andy Warhol Museum, the exhibition includes loans from the National Gallery of Australia; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo; the National Gallery of Victoria; and private collections.

The Australian Cinémathèque will present one of the largest and most complete surveys of Andy Warhol's film work to date. This major program of 53 films and 279 Screen Tests from the Museum of Modern Art, New York, includes many never before seen in Australia. Programs of documentaries, American independent cinema, and films for children will also be screened. Selected film and video works will also be shown within the exhibition. Screening details to be announced.
