Journeys : April May 2010
Tasmania in words and pictures Tasmanian Landscapes Dennis Harding has spent over three decades capturing our island's spectacular and beautiful natural and cultural landscapes. He has published a range of photographic volumes and his work is represented in private collections and public galleries around the country, including the superb Wilderness Gallery at Cradle Mountain Chateau. This book has 85 dramatic and beautiful images, with complementary text by Motor News Journeys editor Chris Viney. www.dennisharding.com.au Fullers Bookshops Dennes Point Bruny Island Artist Lee Vanderslink collected family holiday photographs and old images from Dennes Point's early days, then digitally blended them with contemporary photographs. Combined with historic texts and writings from long-time Bruny residents, the result is an evocative picture of life on North Br uny. Lee is the feature artist in the new Art At The Point gallery through April. Art @ The Point and Fullers Bookshops Walks of King Island -- Walks of Flinders Island Ken Martin's two volumes cover a variety of coastal and bushland walks on both Bass Strait islands. With clear maps, a good selection of photographs and detailed track notes, they're excellent companions for anyone interested in exploring the natural beauty of King and Flinders. Pop a copy in your pack! Fullers Bookshops BLUE COW THEATRE COMPANY - ART Tasmania's home- grow n theatre export John Xintavelonis (The Lion King, Billy Elliot, Jekyll & Hyde), has teamed up with Robert Jarman and Jeff Michel to create BLUE COW THEATRE COMPANY. Its premiere production ART features the three actors in a wise, witty and intelligent comedy that has been a success in the West End, Broadway and around the world. Serge has bought a modern painting for a huge sum of money. Marc hates it and cannot believe that a friend of his could possibly want such a work. Yvan tries unsuccessfully to placate both sides. If your friendship is based on tacit mutual agreement, what happens when one person does something completely different and unexpected? The question is -- are you who you think you are, or who your friends think you are? Watch out for John's 'My slice of the island' in the June-July issue of Motor News Jour neys.

The characters will sing and dance, make and pack the biscuits and still have time for their Air Warden training -- all leading up to the Grand Finale. Be dazzled, disarmed and entertained!

A love letter to the Technicolor musicals of the 1940s, Barry Manilow's COPACABANA presents the story of Lola as told through the eyes of Stephen, a present-day aspiring songwriter whose imagination takes him back to a time when, as the song says, 'Music and passion were always in fashion.'
