The Owl and Cat

THE OWL & CAT THEATRE - VENUE CLOSURE.

Dear reader, 

A lot of electro swing, drinking & theatre making later... the time has come to close the doors on the old haunted house style theatre venue (with terrible signage. I know!) on swan street. Thomas & I got a crazy idea & we ran with it. 50 or so shows later - that crazy idea has grown into what I like to believe is now a key part of the Melbourne theatre scene.

I have had the joy of watching SO many artists grow & gain opportunities & experience, what a gift! The thank you letters & messages from artists who wouldn't be were they are now if it wasn't for something we did or said or simply enabled them to do, are enough to make my life complete. From musicians to set designers to actors & visual artists. The Owl & Cat Theatre has become known & appreciated as a space of equality, acceptance, & artistic expression. It's a home to fearlessness & compassion & heaps & heaps of dust. I have seen audiences filled with awe & inspiration & genuine insight. All of THAT I would pay twice for then again & again & even over once more. 

In the coming year we will continue our production partnership with our Alaskan family at The Last Frontier Theatre Conference in Alaska & we will continue to push boundaries & support new playwrights in different locations. I don't know where the wind will take us just yet but I am excited to find out. I look to MKA as inspiration in this challenging time & I look to all the people that gathered around 2 crazy kids fresh out of a drama degree who wanted to make new theatre. Thank you to those people. The ones who kept the space alive this long. (I tried to write a list of names & this paragraph actually got out of h& - you know who you are - I love you) 

I am honored that I was given this experience & I urge you too remember this at this time - I will remember it too.. we are not a building .. we are artists who work together to tell stories, stories that help people to understand themselves & others more. Theatre has an amazing ability to bring people together & that can't be taken away. 

The Owl & Cat will continue to make theatre, & continue to try new ideas fearlessly, we will continue to make art that tackles anything head on & continue to take submissions. Stay updated via our website - www.owlandcat.com.au

I'm incredibly proud of so so so many things we have created over the years like ORGASM, Boys Club, Tinder Box, Erasers, Bordello, killers, RIOT, our sets, The Main Stage seasons, giving poetry nights a venue & hosting friends parties.. oooh baby our parties (they are always great let's be honest!). Just to name a few. I am chuffed that playwrights flew across the globe to see their work on our little concrete stage from the USA & LONDON. 

What I am most proud of though- is something that we can continue from any space. I am so proud that we take the time to consider everyone. Thomas would read scripts for weeks on end literally weeks - all day every day just reading play after play to ensure all the writers who bothered to submit got a fair go, he would demand world premieres even if they don't sell because writers need a chance. I would sit for hours to watch every actor who registered to audition with an open mind no matter what school they went too or experience they had. I remember the rejection emails as a younger actor. & I do understand the time & financial restraints from the other side of it- but that's why I am proud. We did it anyway. Why? Because we love theatre & we know what it is like to fight for what you believe in. The fight can't be easy or it's dull - but you need someone to give you water ringside right? When the people, who wouldn't otherwise have had the chance to try, did with us... & then they succeeded... man... let me tell you, that is better than any drug on this earth. 

A little bit of my heart will stay on Swan Street... BUT no matter where the Owl & Cat's home is - I have no doubt that this spirit of acceptance; innovation & joy will follow us there. 

As Catherine Holder & Carolyn Dawes (Who have been integral to the longevity of this whole operation to date) reminded me on my birthday... 'if you build it they will come'. 

I will keep building & I hope you will come. 

STAY TUNED.... meow.... 

Sincerely,

Gabrielle Savrone

Mistress of The Owl & Cat Theatre

We Need You More Than Ever


Hullo,

It has been an overwhelmingly exciting year for Red Stitch - sellout houses,. new audiences, loyal supporters, regional tours and a season of acclaimed new work. And, with thanks to you - a small step in the right direction with an increase to our artists fees. We are growing and the outlook for the next 6 months is no exception.
However, the proposed Federal Government budget reform to the Arts announcement last month has sent waves of uncertainty through our community. Red Stitch are among those now vulnerable to funding cuts. Grant applications that were well underway have been scrapped as relevent programs evaporate.
We need our community's support now more than ever! We are committed to advancing the vitality of Australian theatre through nurturing artists and an unerring pursuit of integrity in our craft. But without our audience, theatre doesn't exist. We ask you, our community, to do what you can to ensure Red Stitch is alive and vibrant for years to come.

Dame Edna: My Gorgeous Life.

In a letter published this month Dame Edna apologised for upsetting her fans when she announced her retirement from public life, blaming her manager "failed actor and attention seeker" Barry Humphries.
While every star has to make allowances for minor acts of embezzlement ], she said, Humphries had his hand in the till up top his armpit.
"My new team of advisors said I should close daown all my companies, even my chartiable foundation Friands of the Prostate and re-start my career on a clean page," Dame Edna said.
"That;s what I'm doing. That excplains my so-called 'retirement' and withdrawal from public life. Now I'm reborn, fit as a fiddle and rid of the leach who tormented me for so long. So Possums, please do come and say hello to me. It would be lovely to see your faces again."
