The album was …. ish. Ian McFarlane in his opus The Encyclopedia of Australian Rock and Pop, put it perfectly when he wrote “…. ish is brimful of stirring, stately rock anthems.” It is one of the top 10 most successful debut albums for an Australian artist, to multiple ARIA awards, a multi-platinum second album, chart success in Europe and America. 1927 live is a show not to be missed.

CATHEDRAL

A man kneels by his dive gear. It’s late afternoon on the Limestone Coast. He has a story to tell. It starts in the water. A powerful, visceral and form-busting new work by award-winning South Australian born playwright Caleb Lewis, Cathedral is a thriller, a family drama and an epic journey of self-discovery. From Mount Gambier to Thailand to the North Sea, from soaring first love to shattering loss to ultimate hope, this powerful story ponders a diver’s life shaped by the ocean, and its power to both upend and heal. Beloved Adelaide actor Nathan O’Keefe (Gaslight, Macbeth, The Comedy of Errors) returns to State Theatre Company South Australia to become the man at the centre of this riveting and suspenseful one-person show directed by rising South Australian star Shannon Rush (Limit). Like Complicite’s The Encounter, Cathedral uses technology and soundscape to provide the theatrical pool in which this compelling story will swim. An ultimately life-affirming piece of storytelling, Cathedral asks the question: do we turn away from our pain, or dive right in?

OUTSIDE WITHIN

ADT returns to South Australia’s regional communities once again in 2022 with a brand-new double bill Outside Within, showcasing the extraordinary work of two of the country’s best First Nations choreographers - ADT’s new Artistic Director, Daniel Riley, and 2021 Associate Artist, Adrianne Semmens. Immerse, from Adrianne, is centred around water, and our essential relationship with both freshwater and saltwater. The work draws on Adrianne's identity as a proud descendent of the Barkindji people of western NSW - freshwater country - who was born and raised on Kaurna land in South Australia - by the saltwater. Her choreography explores both the healing and comfort provided by water, but also our vulnerability in relation to it. Daniel Riley, a Wiradjuri man from western NSW, will develop his first choreographic work for the company early in 2022, with its World Premiere in May in Adelaide before heading out on this tour. Riley’s choreographic work aims to prioritise ideas and ideals that resonate with the next generation of storytellers and audiences; moving between artforms, generations and pushing boundaries offered by traditional performance spaces. Later in 2022, Daniel’s mainstage commission will premiere at the Dunstan Playhouse, Adelaide. This double bill will also be the first appearance of Australian Dance Theatre’s 2022 Company Artists, welcoming a diverse range of new dancers to the company.
