We'd love you to join us in celebrating
The Voices Of...
& Marija Herceg
On Sunday 6th of May these 6 courageous & beautiful women will be getting up on stage to share the expression of their voices journey with you through movement, song, art and characterisation.
They are currently participating in the 7 week "The Voices Of...Program" where they come to meet 5 different voices that live inside them. Their inner child, do-er, dreamer, fear and shadow voices. And through creative expression will rise up to the stage to express these parts that live within all of us.
And why? So they can have more freedom and choice to live from their true voice. The true version of who they are, rather than from fear. And to feel more confident in their creative expression both on stage and in life.
These Voices Performance Rituals always SELL OUT!
They are a magnificent experience for both participants and audience members to come to more peace with the voices in our heads. We will come together to share in the humanity we all have.
If you would like to join us, be sure to book your ticket ASAP as to not miss out on the experience.
SUNDAY 6TH MAY at Second Story Studios, 7pm
Concession: $30, Full: $38
We look forward to seeing you there,
The Voices Of Movement team
It’s feverish! It’s Intoxicating! It stays with you long after the colours have come awash, in your soul and in your mind. Second Story Studios is proud to be celebrating Holi with Mukka restaraunt!
Holi is a festival of colours where colours mean everything but nothing at the same time. It’s a time to come together no matter what your background and break barriers, forget social inhibitions and go a little bit mad.
On Sunday the 29th April we are throwing a proper Holi party! You will be greeted with a warming glass of house chai and mithai (Indian sweets), while you enjoy live entertainment (sitar and tabla), an awesome DJ and tons off Gulal (coloured powder) to go crazy with. There will also be a mini street food stall serving hot Dosas, Samosas and bhel puri. Tickets include entry to the event, plenty of gulal (coloured powder), cloakroom, mithai (Indian Sweets), and House Chai.
p.s. Only organic herbal colours made from natural ingredients will be used for this event :)
