YOU, ME, EVERYBODY - SOUTHERN SKY ALBUM TOUR

SUNDAY 14 FEBRUARY, 7:30PM

“Skilfully played and sung Americana, from a virtuoso ensemble that could hold its head up proudly in the company of such well-known artists of the genre as Alison Krauss and Dan Tyminski." Ron Barbers, The Hook.

New Zealand’s progressive bluegrass supergroup, You, Me, Everybody, are coming to Palmerston North as part of their nationwide tour to release of their first full length album “Southern Sky”.

On the back of their 2020 self titled debut EP, You, Me, Everybody have gained national recognition for pushing boundaries to create their own form of New Zealand’s progressive bluegrass. Southern Sky is self produced and features 11 songs and instrumentals all written and arranged by the band. Recorded at Bagnall Hill Recording studio in the small Waikato settlement of Te Pahu in October 2020, with sound engineer Bevan Galbraith (NZ) with mixing done by Grammy Award winning Bluegrass master, Bil VornDick (USA). Southern Sky challenges the usual rhythms and chord patterns of traditional bluegrass to create songs that feature more complex and nuanced emotional subjects such as alienation and isolation, in addition to the staples of whiskey, love and loss.

CHANCE - SHORT PLAYS ON LOVE AND DESTINY (By Angie Farrow, featuring Liz Kirkman & Rob Lloyd)

WEDNESDAY 17 FEBRUARY, 7:00PM
THURSDAY 18 FEBRUARY, 7:00PM
FRIDAY 19 FEBRUARY, 6:00PM

“Angie Farrow has delivered a fine anthology of tried and tested short plays, many of them winning multiple awards, and all of them sharp, witty, and profound”. Theatre Review

Four short plays that explore relationships.

The four short plays in this production explore the relationship between what can be controlled - and what can be left to chance - in a relationship. They are playful, dynamic, and highly theatrical works that shed light on the power of destiny and the extent to which we try to manipulate or change the future. They challenge the audience to think about the consequences of pushing for an outcome even when the gods are against them.

This show is part of the 2021 Papaioea Festival of the Arts.

General Admission $25.62
Group of 6 $129.12

THE BIG BIKE FILM NIGHT

THURSDAY 11 MARCH, 7:00PM

The Big Bike Film Night is on a mission sharing the best cycling short films from around the world with you.

Showcasing our 2021 collection that has everything a cycling-centric audience could want- action, drama, humour, and plenty of inspiration; the evening is going to be unashamedly, and utterly, utterly, utterly aimed at the two wheel devotee!

This year’s treasure chest of films includes an incredible story of a transformative bikepacking journey through the Canadian Rockies; an unusual Victorian pastime taking place in modern London; a rider who has a burden of blindness and its vulnerabilities to contend with while undertaking a gruelling self-supported fat bike race in the Arctic; the humble story of a BMX Club and their dream of becoming the number one Club in the UK; a young female rider who goes back in time to carry the stories of the past into the future; four adventurers bikerafting and riding through challenging landscapes, following the historical trails to and from one of New Zealand’s most significant rivers; and a unique bike builder who builds off-road cycles that helps change people’s lives; ALL in the mix!!

These short films are a great reminder of why we love to ride our bike; with stories that captivate us, stories that make us think, and most importantly of all- stories that inspire us to get out and ride. Tales of character, resilience, challenge, courage, triumphs over adversity and much much more.

So...listen to the voice inside you; it’s telling you to go. Grab your mates, grab your tickets, GO ON… grab your bike and come along for the ride!!

ENTRY: Tickets available HERE
Door sales may be available on the night
Admission
Adults $23, Under 17 $17.50, Under $12.50 (plus booking fee)

DISTANCING (ATIMARI)

FRI, SAT & SUN 9, 10 & 11 APRIL, 7:00PM

A film by Arka Gupta

Distancing (Atimari) explores the recent marriage tension of small-town couple John and Rose Winstead after Rose discovers her husband's infidelity with his office co-worker, Kat. John desires a better, more improved life, made possible by moving to Sydney with Kat and leaving his small-town life, and wife, far behind - but the current state of the world and his sense of flawed morals may not make this transition the easiest.

Distancing (Atimari) is writer-director Arka Gupta's second dramatic film following Udiyoman (Emerging). He is a full-time PhD student in Chemistry at Massey University, but utilises his spare time being an independent filmmaker with a background in theatre, having performed for many shows in the heart of the vibrant, creative Palmerston North. Distancing (Atimari)'s talent stars include Cam Dickons, Taryn Field and Lydia Smith - all of who have been involved with numerous theatrical productions in PN over the past few years and the recipients of a handful of accolades and awards for their roles. The director and the cast are excited to present this passion project, filmed in different Palmerston North locales, and screened at the local Globe Theatre.

This event will also feature Udiyoman (Emerging), Arka Gupta's first film made with the brilliantly creative Sam Wyss, another local talent. The film depicts a brave soul's journey through depression and dissociation, towards the hope of recovery.

Come and join us for an hour-long event showcasing and celebrating superb local talent. 3 nights only!
