Looking for something interesting to get into this weekend? Here's a summary of events taking place near you.


masqueradeA family-friendly musical fantasy made its South Australian debut this month at the Adelaide Festival Centre. Presented by the State Theatre Company of South Australia along with Sydney's Griffin Theatre Company, Masquerade intertwines writer Kate Mulvany's childhood memories with British illustrator Kit William's best-selling 1970s children's book.

Clad in a silver wig and pearlescent dress, Kate Cheel is The Moon, who has fallen in love with The Sun, played by Balkan cabaret crooner and guitarist Mikelangelo. Unable to contain her love for him any longer, she bids her floppy-eared servant Jack Hare (Nathan O’Keefe) deliver a message to him in the form of a riddle, and a hare-shaped amulet made of a jewel from each corner of the Earth. But there is a catch: the message must be delivered by sundown or Jack will be banished forever. Find out more.


lynchThis 50-year retrospective, which considers David Lynch's practice across all media, will feature rarely seen paintings and drawing from the mid 1960s and will also include lithographs, photograph, films, video and television work. A complementary program of events around the exhibition includes the artist in-conversation, and special musical performances.
Curator José Da Silva says the exhibition explores three ideas that connect Lynch's practice across art, cinema and music: ‘man and machine’, ‘the extra-ordinary’ and ‘psychic aches’. Find out more.
