    A celebration of one of the world's most beloved animation studios!!!

    A month marathon of Studio Ghibli films kicks off with 'The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness'. 

    With near-unfettered access inside Studio Ghibli, award-winning director Mami Sunada follows the key personnel at Ghibli – Academy Award-winning director Hayao Miyazaki, producer Toshio Suzuki and the elusive Isao Takahata – over the course of approximately one year as the studio rushes to complete Miyazaki’s The Wind Rises and Takahata’s The Tale of the Princess Kaguya. The result is a rare glimpse into the inner workings of one of the most celebrated animation studios in the world, and a portrait of their dreams, passion and dedication that borders on madness.

    There are multiple participating cinemas. Check the film line-ups and session times HERE.

    Through whirling clouds… Sonic landscapes for two pianos.

    Pianists Tomoe Kawabata and Aura Go share an electric musical connection that speaks directly to audiences. Described as ‘positively ecstatic’, ‘masterful’ and ‘profoundly moving’, the pair delights in sharing the unique combination of intimacy and dynamism of the piano duo. Their innovative and thoughtful programming explores seldom-performed works and new music alongside much-loved staples of the repertoire. Their 2017 Melbourne Recital Centre series celebrates three favourite aspects of the genre in three distinct and compelling programs: unique resonances, evocative and colourful sonic landscapes, and infectious energy.

    From the sensuous rhythms of the Habanera to the rugged coastline and bleached seashore of the Scottish Highlands, landscapes are vividly brought to life through music in masterful works by Maurice Ravel, Claude Debussy, Germaine Tailleferre, Judith Weir and Carlos Guastavino. Through an intricate dialogue between two instruments and four hands, each composer has created an evocative world of sights, smells, rhythms, memories and imaginings. The concert culminates in Ravel’s apocalyptic La Valse for two pianos.

    Date & Time: Wednesday 16 August, 6 pm (for 1 hour, no interval)

    Venue: Salon, Melbourne Recital Centre, 31 Sturt Street, Melbourne

    Ticket: $39 ($29 for concession)

    Okei-san and a Chinese Tea Specialist will run a joint workshop

    What’s it all about?

    Despite coming from the same plant, and being close geographically, Chinese and Japanese teas are worlds apart!

    Did you know there is a big difference? While tea originated in China, Japan has created a very different style with complex aromas and tastes.

    In this class we will taste teas, learn to brew the best cup, and discuss the key factors that account for these differences.

    Workshop covers:

    Teas are not made alike! Growing regions and conditions, production, and brewing methods create very different flavours. In this workshop, we will guide you through the green tea world.

    We will learn the best brewing styles for each type, the benefits and will also savour a selection of green teas. In particular, we will discuss:

    • Different production styles
    • Key differences between the growing methods
    • Harvesting and picking standards and cultivar selection
    • Regions for green tea farming in China and Japan
    • Best brewing methods for each green tea.

    We will also be brewing and tasting teas to appreciate the differences between the two unique styles.

    Date & Time: Monday 31 July, 6.15 pm to 7:30 pm

    Venue: Laneway Learning Central, 22-24 Bennetts Lane Melbourne

    Cost: $20 per person
