What's on at CHYA

In the visual arts:
‘Cutie Patooties’ is a collection of art by artists Claire Cummings, Grace Taylor, Pey Chi and Tegan Iversen.
Claire Cummings is a textile designer with a love for all things pastel, playful and sustainable. Grace Taylor is a Melbourne based artist, illustrator and designer. She works predominantly in watercolour, gouache and pencil but also enjoys experimenting with pen and ink, digital art, embroidery and sewing/soft sculpture. Pey Chi is a multi-disciplinary, creative human of sorts based in Melbourne, Australia. Her work is in response to her bleak experience with chronic illness and a need to express and explore positive feelings of happiness and joy and childlike wonder. Tegan Iverson is an artist and illustrator, who loves colour, pattern, cute things and eating hot chips. Tegan paints, draws and uses digital techniques to create visual art, often inspired by the world around her, with the aim to always be as honest as possible.
The Cutie Patooties Gallery Exhibition runs until November 23.
In the theatre:
Western Edge Youth Arts presents: Share House & 2K (double feature). A night of new original comedy that will give you a peak into the life of culturally diverse youth living in Geelong today. Directed by Dave Kelman, written and performed by the Geelong Edge ensemble.
Bamba, Ada, Veronica and Ivan are the motley crew living in a metropolitan sharehouse; four mismatched, ethnically diverse, unalike friends who contrast in character, stories, and personal troubles. When Bamba’s cousin arrives, she threatens the secrecy of Bamba’s double life. Be immersed in misfortune, triumph, lies and love triangles that come hand-in-hand with being a young adult in a transforming society.
Things were tough enough in 2K’s life before someone attacked and racially abused him at a nightclub in Geelong. His girlfriend is pregnant, his friends can’t fight to save themselves, Jo Po’s car won’t start and the only person who will give him a job is his notorious gangster half-brother, 5K. Will 2K do the right thing? (and can someone please tell him what that is?)
It goes down at 7pm on November 22 – and it’s free. Check out the event here.
