Choose Trainspotting Live

You know the drill. Choose life. Choose a career. Choose a family…. Choose washing machines, cars, compact disc players and tin can openers.. and so in. We all know it, we all love it, and an exciting news, this cult-classic Irvine Welsh novel adaptation is hitting Melbourne stages from 22 March – 13 April 2017. Not many people know, but the stage adaptation of Trainspotting was actually written before the movie was made by Harry Gibson. Presented by Andrew Kay, Associates and Kings Head Theatre, and in it’s 21st year, it continues to simultaneously make it’s audience laugh, cry and cringe as they are fully immersed into the heroin-fueled world of Renton, Begbie and Sickboy. Trainspotting is entirely immersive, meaning you as the audience are actually a part of the story. It’s pitched as raw, uncomfortable (in the best ways possible) and kicks off with a rave complete with strobe lighting and glow-sticks – so you know it’s going to be non-stop. It comes with a warning: Don’t wear your best clothes….. we say, ‘Choose casual comfort.’ Where: fortyfivedownstairs, 45 Flinders …

Women in Film: The Fits

She Speaks First is a series of film screenings that focus on women. Films made by women, for women to empower women – and in each screening, the audience are then invited to engage in conversations which focus on the female contribution  to the cinema space. This February, She Speaks First brings ‘The Fits‘ to the screen Eleven-year-old tomboy Toni, played by a young, but powerful Royalty Hightower, is entranced by the tight-knit dance team she sees practicing in the same Cincinnati gymnasium where she boxes. Enamored by the power and confidence of the strong community of girls, Toni spends less and less time boxing with her older brother, and instead eagerly absorbs the dance routines and masters drills from a distance, and even pierces her own ears in an effort to fit in. But when a mysterious outbreak of fainting spells plagues the team, Toni’s desire for acceptance becomes more complicated. Gorgeously shot and with a mesmerizing score, THE FITS is a transformative experience and a marvelous portrait of adolescence. (72 min, Unrated). Following this exclusive screening, this the …
