QPAC’s Out of the Box festival returns 

This year’s festival is jam packed with five days of in-theatre experiences, workshops and activities curated especially for children aged eight years and under. Works like Air PlayDuckThe Arrival and more take to the QPAC stages, with workshops and activities scattered throughout the QPAC foyers and outside in our green spaces.

This year’s festival is a little different. For the cost of a Day Pass, you can experience all the festival has to offer.

New York’s, Air Play merges circus and street theatre performance art with sculptural artistry.

Air Play is a circus-style adventure of two siblings journeying through a surreal world, transforming ordinary objects into uncommon beauty. Fabrics dance in the wind, balloons have a mind of their own, confetti turns into the night sky, and an enormous canopy of hovering silk forever alters their future.

Ride the wind and dream with Air Play, a modern spectacle that brings to life the very air we breathe. Flying umbrellas, larger-than-life balloons, giant kites floating over the audience, and the biggest snow globe you’ve ever seen will make you gasp in wonder and laugh until it hurts.

★★★★ “A joy from start to finish, Air Play will entrance children, and will act as a great reset button for stressed adults.”- Sydney Morning Herald

Shadow puppets in space! Two brothers embark on an epic quest to find a new home planet.

This is the tale of Sam and Junior. Two brothers, who must flee their barren planet, and embark on an epic quest across the galaxy. Using the contents of your cleaning cupboard, Bunk Puppets’ David Geddes conjures up astonishing lo-fi theatrical wizardry using only old boxes, bubble wrap, drinking straws, tennis balls, ping pong bats and old toys. It’s a crazy shadow puppet universe, made from bits of rubbish.

Award-winning Bunk Puppets, creators of Swamp Juice and Sticks Stones Broken Bones, present this new, delicious, DIY theatre event.

Forget what you think you know about shadow puppets, buckle-in and tear open your imagination for an epic journey with two brothers as they battle the bad guys, and find strength in each other at warp speed.

Lawrence Daws’ - Held Close

Lawrence Daws’ career spans more than six decades. His works are held across national and international collections, both public and private. There are some works however that Daws has retained – those that he has chosen to hold closer.

Daws was born in 1927, grew up on the Fleurieu Peninsula in South Australia and studied at the National Gallery School in Melbourne. Most recognised for his landscape paintings, Daws has long been applauded for his use of metaphysical symbols and the superb craftsmanship of his work.

 

This exhibition will highlight works selected primarily from the artist’s own collection, giving insight into what Daws would believe are his most significant, yet most rarely seen achievements. Discover what has nourished and sustained Daws’ long career. Explore his diverse and lifelong influences – from his studies in engineering, architecture and art, to his close connection with work of 15th century Italian painter Piero della Francesca, and through to his love of Jungian psychology.

Exhibition developed by Moreton Bay Regional Council, in partnership with Philip Bacon Galleries.

YET TO SEE PATRICIA PICCININI’S ‘CURIOUS AFFECTION’?

If you’re a lover of GOMA’s immersive exhibitions played out on a grand scale, then this exhibition is for you. Only at GOMA could the gallery spaces be transformed on such a massive scale. We’ve even put in an extra level to give visitors new.

As curator Peter McKay says, “{Patricia Piccinini} is at the top of her game.” This is your chance to see her work at its finest.

Or, perhaps get a totally different take on ‘Curious Affection’ by visiting after dark during one of the Up Late events later in the season.

Still not sure? The critics are raving…

“★★★★★” — Artshub

“Piccinini’s body of work addresses the profound question of what it means to be human.” — COSMOS by Elizabeth Finkel

“…‘Curious Affection’ offers a space for conversation, and imagination.” — ABC Arts by Dee Jefferson

Invites you to his exhibition

“Have you ever wondered?”

In this exhibition Miles Allen asks questions about our sense of owner-ship, possession, repurposing and the ever-changing element of life and time passing. Miles has been searching for and gathering found objects for many years, and he uses a diversity of them to pose his questions and to tell his stories – old flattened rusty tins, re-formed discarded wire, the repetitive patterns of bicycle chains, 

the weathered textures of oldfence posts … .  There are stories around boundaries, stories of country and stories of human interaction in the creation of objects. works reflect the Influence of Miles’ local environment and his recent travels and work in remote Aboriginal art centres. They encourages viewers to look again and to re-think their relationships to everyday items – “Have you ever wondered …”
