Announcing the final Galah Bar of the year and it’s a Christmas Special!
What a line-up for our final Galah Bar of the Year!
North-Eastern Middle-Eastern Dance Association will present two dances. Started in the 1990’s, the association is dedicated to the support of Bellydance in regional areas in and around Albury-Wodonga.
The group dabbles in all types of Bellydance styles, from the flamboyant cabaret style most often seen in old Hollywood movies to gypsy and tribal styles including many fusion styles
incorporating Gothic, Indian and Spanish influences. The motto of the group is “All ages, all sizes, all gorgeous” as well as “dress-ups for grown-ups”. The group is a not-for-profit organisation and often is seen at public and charity events. The annual Fire in the Belly Festival brings renowned dance teachers from around Australia for workshops and culminates in a Bellydance show open to the public.
We welcome back Timmy James – our local stand up for his final appearance this year.
Also Keep it in the Bag – Adam and Natasha Kronenberg – these two got together and started practising after meeting in a rather unusual place. Some duos meet in bars or pubs or drama school or comedy night. These guys first came together in the unlikely setting of … a hospital … ! I know: weird hey? Imagine meeting someone in a hospital and ending up putting on a comedy act together. What makes it all the more strange is that they actually met in … the birthing suite, where they just happened to bump into each other.
Add to this amazing, unique and beautiful Circus Acts from The Fruits Bats’ Eleanor Tan, and the Flying Fruit Fly Circus’ Lucy Tan and Rhiannon Ersser, original poetry from local wordsmith Olwen Steel and …
music … music … music …
Incredible skill and inspiring musicianship from classical guitarist Nathan Vaccaro; Space Boys – a young band with a big future that launched their first single on Triple J unearthed to much acclaim, and the Northern Folk’s gorgeous Georgie Currie gracing our final Galah Bar with her sweet voice, and all hosted by our own Kyle Walmsley!
As always, expect the unexpected!
Celebrate with a champagne and strawberry from Bobby’s Bar and support Country Hope who’ll be cooking up a storm on the barbie. Country Hope Trust provides family centred support services to country children diagnosed with cancer and other life threatening illnesses.
About Galah Bar
Galah Bar pays homage to our history and the Murray River Performing Group. After 20 years, she’s back: with a heavy-duty facelift and a false passport. Over 5 nights in 2016, local artists have a platform for new material in front of a live audience. Theatre, comedy, cabaret, yodelling … so far all sorts of acts have flown in … poetry, acapella, high flying acts from the Flying Fruit Fly Circus and more!
And Galah Bar will be back in 2017!
