What's On

Q Theatre's Yellow Yellow Sometimes Blue
 

Journey back to 1950s Australia to trace the roots of Sydney’s early modernist art movement in Yellow Yellow Sometimes Blue, a new theatre work from Q Theatre, at The Joan Thursday 15 - Saturday 24 November, 2018.

In lush surrounds along the Nepean River sits the home of Gerald and Margo Lewers. It is here in the 1950s where artists from around the world converged to share ideas and establish the backbone of Australia’s modernist art movement. Inspired by the history of the home, now Penrith Regional GalleryYellow Yellow Sometimes Blue peers through the eyes of ‘the help,’ to offer a fresh take on Emu Plains in a time of great cultural change for Australia.

Yellow Yellow Sometimes Blue is the story of Iris and Leo. Two outsiders peeking in at a world of money, power and gossip as they prepare canapés and cocktails for a debaucherous gathering of Sydney’s cultural elite.

Performed by Adam Booth and Kate Worsley, designed by Katja Handt and featuring live music by cellist Me-Lee Hay, Yellow Yellow Sometimes Blueis a story of surviving and thriving as an outsider looking in.

Tickets are $55 Standard, $50 Concession or $30 for Under 30s. Bookings online at www.thejoan.com.au
