THE FLOWER WHISPERER

Saskia Havekes – artist, floral curator, author           Tony Assness – creative director & event designer

Warren Macris – digital artist

Saskia Havekes does not arrange flowers, she curates them. And drama and scale are her signatures. When she joins forces with Australia’s premier event, theatre and party director you know you are going to an AAQ concert unlike anything you have ever experienced.

SPATIAL CONTEMPLATION

Sometimes you’re just not in the mood for guests.

The AAQ uses every nook and cranny of the Yellow House in this sonic exploration of time and space. You won’t know where to look.

When we were young

See a different side to this incredible performer as Taryn and the AAQ explore the innocence, awe and nightmares of youth.

FLESH & BONE

with KAGE

The highly acclaimed KAGE joins the AAQ in a dreamlike exploration of gender. Flesh & Bone is a lullaby, a parable and a song about what it means not to be man or woman, but to be human. Darlings of international arts festivals, this is an incredible chance to experience KAGE at point blank range.

“Beautiful, innovative, moving, funny and highly decorated works” — Paul Summers

Music from Stravinsky, Prokofiev & Shostakovich


Butt Naked Salon II

Alan Jones – painter

Butt Naked Salon was the must-see AAQ show of 2016 and it returns in 2017 with the highly awarded Alan Jones painting the walls of the Yellow House to the music of Vaughan Williams and Sculthorpe.
