Kung Fu Movie Tickets

‘The Five Venoms’ and ‘The 36th Chamber Of Shaolin’ had a profound effect on a young Robert Diggs when he first encountered them in Manhattan’s 42nd Street grindhouse theatres in the late ‘70s.

Diggs would grow up to be RZA, one of the most influential producers in hip hop, and the two venerable Hong Kong action flicks would eventually underpin the unique philosophy of the Wu-Tang Clan when he unexpectedly led them out of Staten Island and took the world by storm with ‘Enter The Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers’ in 1993.

Take advantage of a very rare opportunity to see these two influential classics in a double screening at the GOMA cinema from 6pm on Friday September 27.

Kupka's Piano: Classical Music In Preview

New wave and classical music are not phrases traditionally used in the same sentence. Kupka's Piano is here to change that.

“There's a perception that you've got to have Conservatorium training or at least some kind of classical music background to enjoy this. Ironically the die-hard classical artists don't really like this music so we're damned both ways,” says composer Liam Flenady.

Formed in early 2012, this ensemble takes stereotypical classical music and gives it a fresh twist in the hope of attracting a more diverse audience to this style of music.

“Kupka's Piano is about looking for young composers who are looking at the trends in the last 20 years and just going 'yeah I like that, I like that but I don't like this. What if we combined these things and did it in another way?' and then coming up with different synthesised approaches.”

Set to play at the Judith Wright Centre in two weeks in the third instalment of their 'Where In The World Is Kupka's Piano?' series, they will be collaborating with a German ensemble for a performance of new Italian music.

“I've been looking forward to this project all year since we got the JUMP Mentorship grant because the ensemble we're working with, Ensemble Interface from Germany, are some of the most amazing young musicians that I know and this is just a rare opportunity.”

Completely aware that the music they make is not traditional — rather then rejecting being labelled 'niche' — they have embraced it and used it to their advantage.

 “I suppose you have to be honest, it is going to be a niche thing. But that's fine, a lot of pop music today is niche. Once you get outside of the heavily corporatised mainstream and into a lot of the independent stuff, it is niche and it's a matter of finding and building an audience.”

They have incredible drive and relish the challenge writing and performing this style of music presents.

“It's impossible to make great music, but there's this tantalising possibility that lives on the other side of impossibility that keeps driving you. That challenge is the tantalising part of it all and you might just find a gem. As a composer I want to do that, I don't think I have yet but I want to.”

With plans to travel overseas next year, alongside a strong focus on collaborations with different ensembles, Kupka’s Piano have a busy year ahead of them.

“We're doing the USA next and probably a little bit of South America too. We really want to focus a lot more on collaborations and we're collaborating with Ensemble Offspring from Sydney. We're all applying for festivals and for overseas tours and all sorts of things so it seems like it's going to be a busy year next year.”

Bringing classical music to a modern environment is a challenge that Kupka’s Piano have immersed themselves in and they embrace the opportunity to break the stereotypical conventions associated with their style of music.

“There aren't any pre-given responses that you're supposed to have for it, it completely fucks with any possible kind of convention. So what we really want to say is 'you don't need any kind of classical background because it's more about how this is art'. Think of when you go to the art gallery, you don't need to have been a painter to be able to appreciate what you saw.”

Kupka’s Piano performs 'To Roam With Love' at The Judith Wright Centre from September 27-28.

1. Anything can happen, oh the drama.
Comedy is simple, tell a joke and people laugh. Yes, simple. No, it’s freaking complicated. Physics, gravitational pull, burning superhot gasses, magma and an airless vacuum is what happens when comedy goes wrong, which is hilarious! When it goes right and you laugh, that’s good too.

2. You’ll meet cool people and hook up.
The internet is full of desperate people looking for less desperate people but in reality, misery loves company. Break the cycle. Watch live stand-up, laugh and watch other people laugh. Watching somebody laugh is like getting to see their face when they orgasm. Come faces, hilarious!

3. Have an epiphany.
If you have a brain, a hearty laugh will dip the things that vex you in a bucket of clarity. If you don’t have a brain, stop reading, never come to one of my shows. Look there’s a shiny object, did you just fart, pffft!

4. Learn something.
A good comedian makes a good a point. A great comedian makes a great point. A bad comedian gets you asking yourself, what’s the point? You’ll learn things about yourself, the people around you and about the world. People learn things they never knew like poo is funny.

5. What’s ‘Exploring Uranus’ about?
It’s a bit of fun and a chance to be silly about serious things. I’ve enjoyed performing it and people have laughed. It seems pretty simple.

Desh, the Aussiest South African Comedian in the world, is finishing his Brisbane season of his new stand up show, 'Exploring Uranus' at the Sit Down Comedy Club Paddington Tavern on Sept 15 and 22.
