Dionysus Theatre premiers an original thought-provoking artistic festival including one-act plays, performance pieces, and visual artists. Arete : ZETA is an innovative annual One-Act Play, Performance and Visual Arts Festival, where all artistic works respond to a set quote; allowing artists to manifest unique thought and create something extraordinary for audiences of all ages.
This year’s quote: "If you sit and wait to feel like you are the most confident person in the room, you are probably going to be left by yourself", has manifested an incredible array of artistic works submitted for this year’s Festival.
The 2021 quote comes from Jacinda Ardern, the awe-inspiring New Zealand Prime Minister, who has proven over the past five years with her ‘relentless positivity’ that she has handled all that has come her way personally and professionally with grace, diligence and dignity. Each year a quote is chosen that allows playwrights, musicians, visual artists and theatre makers to respond in any way they are drawn to.
The works Arete : ZETA offers in this artistic platform culminate in a remarkable Festival, complete with varied and insightful interpretations on this year’s quote. For only two nights, you will witness thought-provoking and entertaining artistry, all held at Cube37, Frankston Arts Centre in May. You will be assured to laugh, to cry, and certainly be entertained. There will be plenty to discuss afterwards – just what theatre should do! All brought to you by award-winning local theatre company, Dionysus Theatre.
