Claude Hay and the Kung Fu Mustard @ Austrian Australian Club
Dec 13 @ 7:30 pm – 10:30 pm
Claude Hay and the Kung Fu Mustard @ Austrian Australian Club | | |
Blue Mountains songwriter Claude Hay is hitting the road this spring to launch his new band project ‘Claude Hay and The Kung Fu Mustard’. The new band takes its cues from old school funk, one of Claude’s first musical loves, and will take the dance floor up a notch at his already heaving shows. Claude has been developing the new material with producer-composer Brian Cachia who will also be playing the role of funky drummer on the live gigs. Cachia has been a long-time friend and sometime collaborator who spends most of his time working on Hollywood film scores. Claude Hay has been one of the leading lights of the Aussie festival scene for almost a decade, chocking up uncountable kms in pursuit of a heaving marquee to pump out the blues rock riffage. His solo show has taken him around the world, and his famous weird and wonderful homemade guitars have cranked out 5 albums over the past 10 years. You can shake your booty to Claude Hay at his show at the Austrian Club this December.

Vaishikam: Courtesans of the deities Dance contemplation intensive @ Moving Archetypes Studio
Jan 25 – Jan 26 all-day
Vaishikam: Courtesans of the deities Dance contemplation intensive @ Moving Archetypes Studio | | |

The Courtesan in traditional Indian dance is significant in contemplative practice as well as in focusing on aesthetics as the space of transformation. The Courtesan world parallels the limitlessness and ‘otherness’ that is necessary for us to overcome our limited ways of thinking. It transforms “Kaama” or desire, the strongest human drive, into a transformative aesthetic meditation. This radical shift is the doorway towards the contemplative experience.

The intensive will consider the ritual, dance and emotional content of the Courtesan domain in temple dance. It invites participants to a world of power, freedom and beauty.

When. 10 am-3 pm (including lunch break) 25-26 January 2020
Where: Moving Archetypes Studio, Unit 10, 19-25 Kembla Street, Fyshwick
Cost: $140 (Early Bird until 15 December), $160 (Full)
No previous experience of dance required.
