In this 75th an­niver­sary of the bomb­ing of Dar­win, JUTE Theatre Com­pany and Cor­ru­gated Iron Youth Arts present

a play that takes an un­usual, fe­male per­spec­tive to re­live an im­por­tant yet lit­tle-known time in Aus­tralia’s his­tory dur­ing World War II. The play fea­tures a cast of five, two of whom hail from Cairns. The show opens tonight and runs un­til April 8. Visit jute.com.au Walk­ing is a quin­tes­sen­tial part of hu­man life. But this act can be more than sim­ply a way to travel from A to B. Wayfaring ex­plores the prac­tice of mind­ful walk­ing as a way to con­nect to nat­u­ral sur­rounds. The mul­ti­sen­sory na­ture of walk­ing of­fers unique cor­po­real and cog­ni­tive dis­cov­er­ies, while pro­vid­ing an in­spir­ing route to a richer un­der­stand­ing of the sur­round­ing environment. This ex­hi­bi­tion show­cases a broad range of works by 23 con­tem­po­rary Aus­tralian artists, de­sign­ers and ar­chi­tects, who utilise the medium of glass in their work. Co-cu­rated by Brian Parkes and Mar­garet Han­cock Davis from the JamFac­tory in Ade­laide, the ex­hi­bi­tion ex­plores prod­ucts, projects and works of art that re­flect many of the cur­rent pre­oc­cu­pa­tions with glass within con­tem­po­rary art, de­sign and ar­chi­tec­ture. In­spired by her sense of place and the essence of that which can be called home, Sut­ton bids farewell to her beloved sur­rounds of 17 years in her first solo ex­hi­bi­tion.
