Cover to Cover: Exposing the Bookbinder's Ancient Craft

Date/Time: Friday, 28 July 2017 - Friday, 29 September 2017

Location: Barr Smith Library, Rare Books & Special Collections, Level 1

Cost: Free: All Welcome

More information: Visit website

Bookbinding is a humble pursuit. Rarely does it receive the attention and glamour afforded to other ancient crafts. Unlike the silversmith or glassblower, whose talents are immediately obvious, the binder's craft of construction is largely concealed, making it difficult to celebrate that which we cannot see.

Yet a binding offers so much more than mere protection; it is a story in itself.

Delve into this fascinating, lesser-known craft in the Barr Smith Library, where exposed bindings, rare and old books, bookbinding equipment, tools and supplies from both Rare Books & Special Collections and the curator's personal collection will be on display.

THREE TALL WOMEN by Edward Albee

Date/Time: Wednesday, 9 August 2017 - Saturday, 19 August 2017, 7:30 pm to 10:00 pm

Location: Little Theatre, (The Cloisters), North Terrace Campus

Cost: $28 Full, $23 Concession

The Theatre Guild and director Geoff Brittain are delighted to return to Albee's work following the hugely successful 2015 season of 'Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?'

As an imperious, acerbic old woman lies dying, tended by two other women, she remembers the fun of her childhood, an early marriage and the optimism of youth. But as her mind wanders, she recalls later events and bitterness creeps in, revealing disappointment, betrayal and unhappiness.

Her son arrives to kneel at her bedside. But is it too late?

Based largely on the story of his adoptive mother, Pulitzer prize-winning drama 'Three Tall Women' is a startling and provocative portrayal of a wealthy widow looking back on her life in an attempt to solve its riddles; a journey that transports her to a landscape of reflection where generations collide and time vanishes.

Ageing and human frailty are depicted with insight, wit and a complete absence of sentimentality. Albee lays bare the pettiness and self-deception in our lives, whilst introducing a dimension of forgiveness and reconciliation not seen in his earlier work.

Cast: Rachel Burfield, Jessica Carroll, Jean Walker and Amin Zargarian

Adam Rybovic   New Work
Vaughan Williams   Tuba Concerto
Haydn   Symphony No.100, The Clock


Rarely heard in their true glory, the rich hues of the tuba are revealed in Vaughan Williams’ remarkable concerto, brimming with the unexpected. Adelaide composer Adam Rybovic unveils a new work, and one of Haydn’s most joyous symphonies adds its clearer, brighter colours to a palette of contrast and complement.
