Alternative Theatre night at Centre 64

Unusual Musings, Ordinary Acts will showcase Kimberley's arts centre.

Centre 64 is the artistic centre of Kimberley, housing galleries, workrooms, a dance studio and of course, a theatre.

Kimberley resident  and performance artist Trina Rasmussen loves what Centre 64 has to offer and she wants to showcase it to the community in a different way.

Unusual Musings, Ordinary Acts will showcase six different artistic acts (dance, music, drama) doing different things at various spots in the upper and lower galleries at Centre 64.

It takes place on Friday and Saturday, October 12 and 13 at 7:30 p.m.

“We’ve each chosen our corner, we’ve each chosen our medium, we’ve each chosen something that takes the ordinary out of our lives and makes it unusual,” Rasmussen said. “We are putting ourselves into places where we don’t normally go and we invite you, the audience, to come with us.

“I wanted to get something very different happening at Centre 64 and I also wanted to give myself and some other local performing artists an opportunity to try something that was off track from our regular repertoire. I love the Centre and the lower and upper gallery, so what we are doing is placing the artists in different areas through-out the gallery and Centre and having them do their pieces there.

“This is an evening for your imagination to blend with ours. Have a glass of wine, take a look at the offerings, write a comment, and peruse our gallery.”

All the works are original and created just for the night. Arrive after 7:30 and wander the Centre like a gallery and treat yourself to all the different artistic offerings.

Entrance is by donation.
