About This Event

Dionysus Theatre premiers an original thought-provoking artistic festival including one-act plays , performance pieces, and visual artists.

 Arete : Epsilon 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 "Happiness is beneficial for the body, but it is grief that develops the powers of the mind" has manifested an incredible array of artistic works submitted for this year’s Festival.

 The 2019 quote comes from Marcel Proust, a French novelist, critic and essayist, best known for his monumental novel, "In Search of Lost Time". He is considered by writers and critics to be one of the most influential authors of the 20th century.

 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 : Epsilon 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 to 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.

Presented by: Dionysus Theatre
