Alice Night

Alice Night is an Australian, English singer-songwriter who shares original folk songs rich in narrative, lyricism, and honesty. She is most noted for the stirring tone of her voice. She is equal parts mysterious and straight-up. She has released five collections of recorded music.

‘Alice Night’ concocts an elegant sonic world of the strangely familiar. She charts a wavering journey through densely beautiful and effortless personal song worlds that ask us to fall deeper into them.’ – Lawrence English – ROOM40

‘Her voice makes me feel like I am walking through an ancient Nordic forest in a time I can’t understand.’ – audience member.

Ancient mystical traditions and her extensive travels colour her musical canvas. Sophia is classically and jazz trained. Drawing on her professional knowledge, her path is one of the spiritual connections. Her ethereal voice has been known to awaken the souls of her listeners.

Sophia writes and sings in both Hebrew and English. She collects songs, prayers, and chants from around the world. She currently also offering workshops and private voice sessions to awaken the birth rite gift of all the voice.

These are very strange and uncertain times.

We believe that now more than ever is a time where music and song are greatly needed. We are incredibly grateful and humbled to be of service through song, sound, and music. Because of this, we are passionate about finding ways to make this happen.

In an event where unforeseeable restrictions prevent the audience from attending (something that hopefully does not happen), we will either move the evening to an online platform with beautiful sound and lighting or postpone the evening to another date.

Tickets purchased can be passed on to someone else but there will be no refunds. We will be investing to make this evening beautiful and share the music.

Women’s Theatre Project

‘We Have a Chance to Make a Difference Til Our Dying Day’

Saturday 7th August, 7:30pm and Sunday 8th August, 3:30 and 7:30pm.


‘Women’s Theatre Project’ is an ’empowering women through theatre’ course facilitated by Philippa Williams. These 10 week courses have run termly since 2015 and alternate between performance/production and improv/process work. This is a performance term and we have explored the archetypes of Mother, Lover, Priestess, Warrior, Crone and Seeker. This made for rich material as we looked at how these characters appeared in our own lives and psyche. The play was devised and written by the group using process work, improvisation and creative writing.
.
The story is of a young woman in crisis searching for meaning in life and asking the age old question ‘Who am I?’
Which of her internal archetype characters should she follow? and what to do about ‘The System?’
She goes on a journey with a group of friends as they find their way towards acceptance, gratitude, surrender and freedom.
The performance includes poetic text, original choreography, a fabulous soundtrack and lots of singing!
.
Any profits from this production will be donated to The SHIFT Project in Byron Bay which supports women moving from homelessness to independence.
.
Here is the link for the event.
.
The performance lasts 80 minutes with no interval
COVID REQUIREMENTS
The theatre will be at half capacity.
Masks need to be worn.
Everyone will need to sign in.

Peter Hunt & Friends

Peter Hunt and Friends at the Mullumbimby Drill Hall

POSTPONED TO A DATE TO BE ANNOUNCED

.
Peter Hunt, with Bobby Alu and Linden Lester, invite you into the warmth of the Drill Hall Theatre to journey with them in a vessel of music.
.
This special concert is in celebration of Peter Hunt’s album, Vessel.
.
This album is the first Peter Hunt has released under his own name, after several albums with the groove supergroup Kooii. It draws from his love for African music and jazz and is threaded with the sense of something Celtic too. It is the culmination of decades devoted to songcraft; the binding of words with voice in it’s expression of feeling, melody and dance.
.
The album can be heard here: https://peterhunt.bandcamp.com/releases
.
With generosity and rhythmical vitality in the nature of his music, songman and percussionist Bobby Alu, shall weave the rhythm baskets of the songs, having recorded the percussion on the Vessel album.
.
Local musical treasure and one half of the group, the Imprints, Linden Lester will be on bass, bringing his foundational feel to the songs.
.
The creativity of the evening shall also involve the inspiration of other special guests, to be announced.
.
For further information ring Peter on 0421 519 030

Old Men Dancing

OLD MEN DANCING

Movement and dance exploration

Mondays 2:00 ~ 3:30 pm

with Local Dancemaker Kimberley McIntyre & members of the Drill Hall Theatre Company

“Old men dancing, is a response to my being involved with the Drill Hall theatre company and being inspired by the support, talent and passion of the “old” men I met there.

It is also a response by me to a cheeky offer by one of these men to join me and my dance partner on stage. We were at the time performing an improvised duet dance piece in Drill Bits 2017.

So I am pursuing this offer with my own counteroffer to share process and practice around movement and improvisation from a dance perspective. I will share this practice with any old men who would like to give it a go.

It is a project for people interested in exploring movement and dance.

There will be a performance outcome in the future, although we will not rush towards it. I am more interested in the process.

Everyone is welcome to move within their capabilities. There are lots of elements in movement improvisation that I have been actively exploring and performing for over 20 years. And I look forward to the constellation of the Drill Hall’s older male members plus anyone else in the community who is interested.” – Kimberley
