‘Modern Music For Modern People’ is a concept album about Mista Twista and his interactions in the world in 2020. He is a quirky man who enjoys the quiet life working in his barbershop and has brilliant stories to tell of his adventures and travels. In Act 1 he is transformed from barber to celebrity when his band hits the big time only to fins himself surrounded by the perils of modern life – the internet, selfies and politicians. After a brief intermission...... Act 2 begins – he starts feeling the pressure of modern life but aside from that, the oceans start rising and Armageddon strikes the world. At the end of the album the only two people left on the earth is Mista Twista and his lover all alone serenading each other trying to survive to live to fight another day.

Steve Hensby Band are splitting at the seams with an assault to the musical senses with elements of funk, soul, ska, world, a sprinkle of psychedelia and a dash of folk. The 8-piece ensemble features a healthy sized horn section and is very danceable!

BLACK SWAN STATE THEATRE COMPANY OF WA PRESENTS
ANIMAL FARM
ADAPTED BY VAN BADHAM FROM THE NOVEL BY GEORGE ORWELL. 
 
Manor Farm is in a state of rebellion as a gang of pigs unite to overthrow their cruel human oppressor.
 
Written in the 1940s by George Orwell as a response to the rise of authoritarian governments, Animal Farm is a timeless examination of extremist rule. This new adaptation continues to caution with the universal message that power can corrupt – and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
 
Adapted by political powerhouse Van Badham (Banging Denmark, Q&A, The Drum and writer at The Guardian), this high-octane three-hander features a cast of stellar comedians, improvisers and storytellers. They bring to life a farmyard of characters including the hardworking Boxer and power hungry Napoleon. This is a biting political satire that will make you grunt.
