David Lynch at GOMA

Between Blue Velvet and Mulholland Drive, David Lynch’s on screen work is instantly identifiable. In 2015, the breadth of his artistic practice will be showcased at Brisbane’s Gallery for Modern Art. Rarely seen paintings, drawings, lithographs and photographs will go on display alongside a complete retrospective of his film, video and television work. The artist himself flies into Brisbane in March to open the exhibition and host exclusive events.

David Lynch: Between Two Worlds is at GOMA, Brisbane from 14 March 2015 until 7 June

New talent at MTC

Frogs, war games and an unsolved murder – although not all at once. Cybec Electric is Melbourne Theatre Company’s annual showcase of emerging playwriting talent and the 2015 selection sees the work of Dan Lee, Tobias Manderson-Galvin, Melissa Reeves and Michele Lee semi-staged.

Cybec Electric is at Melbourne Theatre Company from 9 to 21 February

Othello remixed

Shakespeare – ghetto MC? Why not. After reworking A Comedy of Errors, Much Ado About Nothing and Romeo and Juliet, Chicago’s Q Brothers take on Othello, the classic tale of jealousy and betrayal, stripping it back and filling it with contemporary references to give it a fresh spin.

Othello: The Remix plays at the Arts Centre Melbourne from 18 to 22 February

The National Folk Festival runs from 2 to 6 April at Exhibition Park, Canberra
