Over the past 24 years Brisbane's Matilda Awards have gained a reputation for recognising and rewarding the talents of many emerging artists in acting, directing, producing and playwrighting.

Judith Wright Centre Director Ruth Hodgman today announced the next crop of Fresh Ground artists, who will take up short-term creative development residencies, valued at $10 000 each, at the Centre from March to June 2011.

Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC) advises that shows will go on as scheduled in the Concert Hall and Cremorne Theatre, which have been given approval to open after recent flood damage to the Centre.

Brisbane Powerhouse re-opened its doors today, Monday 17 January, miraculously only minimally affected by the floods that have devastated Brisbane and most of South East Queensland.

 

A number of performances at QPAC have been postponed due to the Queensland Flood Crisis

Queensland’s largest independent theatre company, Harvest Rain Theatre Company, today launched an initiative designed to unite the artistic community of Brisbane in an effort to provide much-needed support and clean-up personnel to the artistic venues and cultural precincts impacted by the recent flooding.

QPAC and QTIX are closed until further notice. ALL PERFORMANCES on Wed 12, Thu 13 and Fri 14 are cancelled.

Brisbane audiences now have an additional season of plays to choose from in 2011 . For the first time the company will also offer a Studio Season which features three shows that break the rules of conventional theatre.
