"In its diamond anniversary year, West Australian Ballet presents a dazzling triple bill. Poéme de l’extase – Australian Premiere, Originally created by John Cranko for Margot Fonteyn, Poéme de l’extase tells the story of a famous actress recalling her past. Flattered at first by the attentions of a much younger man who falls in love with her, she then recalls her former loves and realising that this part of her life has already fulfilled, rejects the hapless young man. Scriabin’s music, with its accumulation torrents of emotion, coupled with opulent designs from Pablo Núñez, capture the essence of the Belle Époque in this stunning ballet. Jeu de carte, One of his most adored and enduring works, Jeu de carte, a poker game in three deals, revels in Cranko’s playful tenacity. The protagonist is the clown faced, red-wigged Joker, whose disruptive, chameleonic presence determines the outcome of the game. Set to Stravinsky’s witty score, this ballet has been a hit with audiences the world over. Prélude á l’aprés-midi d’un faune & Dying Swan

Brought back especially for the company’s 60th anniversary, Prélude á l’aprés-midi d’un faune was choreographed by Barry Moreland in 1985 for former West Australian Ballet star Ronnie Van den Bergh. The work brilliantly captures the languid imagery from Stephane Mallarme, on whose poem Debussy based his famous composition. The final diamond in this program of exquisite gems is Michel Fokine’s Dying Swan, created for luminary Anna Pavlova in 1905 and restaged in 2012 by Perth’s own world-star, Margaret Illmann."

New Children's Book by Arlene Brown is Released
by BWW News Desk - Oct 14, 2016

A stunning wedding collar made from luxurious leather and Diamonds has gone missing, and it's up to a doggie detective duo to find out what happened before the special event is ruined. They're under the gun because they only have three days to do so. A new children's book released by Dog Ear Publishing follows the story of the canine sleuths who are on the case. When Monique Potter, a poodle, discovers her collar missing from her nightstand, she can't stop crying because she hoped to wear it during her wedding three days later. Although her parents call the German shepherd police, they also place a call to a special detective agency run by Bradley and Mr. Quick, dogs who they hope can find the stolen collar quickly. The detectives - and the police - don't know the necklace was taken by Dollar and his partner Cash, who had been engaged to Monique until she broke it off to become acquainted with Edward, who she said 'Yes' to a year later. Cash claims he took the collar just to tell Monique to delay her wedding, but once a con dog, always a con dog. Can Bradley and Mr. Quick find the collar in time or will the Potters be forced to delay the ceremony their daughter has always dreamed of? 'Bradley and Mr. Quick the Canine Duo: In Search of the Wedding Collar,' a short chapter book, is full of colorful canine characters from an eavesdropping alley cat to beautiful waitresses, impatient fathers and crusty bulldog witnesses. Readers step into the world of doggie detectives with a front-row seat to the action and adventure. Author Arlene Brown has been interested in writing since 1987 but life and time were not on her side until her retirement in 2010. She worked for Horizon Air starting in 1998 as a special service agent, dispatcher for the special service team, on the floor and as a baggage handler and handling aircrafts. Brown received training in writing television and radio ads starting in 1991 at the Connecticut School of Broadcasting in Bellevue, Wash., as well as training for voiceover work and being a disc jockey. She worked on her portfolio of commercials and edited and prepared manuscripts for writers in Seattle before joining the airline. Brown is looking forward to writing now that she has the time to do so.
