Loose ends

OUT OF THE ORDINARY VISUAL THEATRE, SET IN A WONDROUS TINKERING HEAVEN

Makers, creators, and story lovers; dive into a theatrical adventure that feels like the magic box of a bygone trickster!

Journey to an eccentric place where gadgets are poetic, puppets are naughty, machines untamed and circus tricks pop up when you’re least expecting it! This is a world where music appears from lemons, carrots and bunny’s bums, monsters go crazy and birthday parties are ferociously celebrated.

Loose Ends is the story of a man who thinks he can organise all his life in boxes, and has a knack for getting into mischief. Can this tinkerer learn enough about real friendship to keep him out of trouble?

This breathtaking show is highly visual, emotional and unpredictable. It makes inventions and machines fun and adds a few quirky edges to puppetry.

Devised and Performed by: Jens Altheimer
Music and Soundscape: Carl Polke
Creative Input: Chris Bennett

Mother’s Day Classic Fun Run/Walk

Date: May 14, 2017

Location: Domain Athletics Centre, Hobart

Mothers Day classic

In two decades there are very few events that can claim runners, walkers and even tutu wearers, have made it to the moon and back and helped save lives along the way.

But the Mother’s Day Classic can claim that unusual record as it prepares to celebrate its 20th birthday this year.

As the major fundraiser for the National Breast Cancer Foundation, the MDC has contributed more than $30 million to breast cancer research.

Registrations to take part in the national event are now open. With a walk/run in every major capital city and over 100 regional areas, there is no excuse for missing out on the major anniversary of this family friendly event.

MDC CEO Sharon Morris said the focus for the events 20th year would be one of celebration, and that the event is no average fun run/walk.

“It is a powerful day for families and friends to support breast cancer survivors and those who have lost loved ones to the disease,” she said.

“Mother’s Day Classic is not about breaking speed records. Our focus is on participation, whether you walk, run or volunteer. Many people have fun dressing up: you’ll see everything from pink pirates to teams in tutus.

“It is also about fundraising, and this year we have set a new target to provide $4 million for the National Breast Cancer Foundation to fund life-changing breast cancer research.”

 

There will be a minute of silence to pay tribute to loved ones lost to cancer before the start of each event.
