Warrarna towilla yertangga Tardanyangga “Voices of spirit and place” – Karl “Winda” Telfer
Warrarna towilla yertangga Tarndanyangga – Voices of spirit and place is an invitation to enter, as in a dream, the lost memory of the yerta Meyunna – the first Peoples of the Adelaide plains. How do we conciliate the bi-cultural histories from settlement to today? I welcome you to the continuum of cultural and spiritual renewal.

I Spy – Eloise Green
Join Lorna Kent and her trusted sidekick Joyce Parker, a 1970’s Kombi, as they take on the meaning of impossible. ‘I Spy’ is a window into the adventure of a lifetime, a dense puzzle of suspense, paranoia, and espionage. Diving deep into danger, will Lorna and Joyce find themselves in inferno or paradise? ‘I Spy’ is an exploration of inner demons and the hero within us all.

The Special One – Stephen Noonan
Who is that special one who looks over you? How many legs do they have? Borrowing from the world of illusion, The Special One plays with what is real and really unreal. Step inside and see an altered view of reality. You may just discover who watches over you.

Security World – Made by StoneCastro in association with Jason Cross. Produced by Insite Arts.
Some years ago a company of security guards took up residence in a wing of the State Library of South Australia known as The Institute Building. After years, bored and restless their emotions and spirits have been exposed and revolt is imminent. This is a rare opportunity to bare witness to their lives, relationships and daily routines before their departure.

Not a Nativity Play – Steve Sheehan
Children have performed Nativity Plays for years. I asked some of our smallest artists if they would like to do the crucifixion and they said yes. So we workshopped a window display of the Easter Story. We hope you like it. So many apples!
