Park’d Performances @ Curtin

Each semester we get in a range of different acts – from stilt walkers to musicians – to entertain you.

We’ve got a few changes to the way it’s organised. We’ll just have performers on Wednesdays this semester.

Here’s this month’s schedule:

Week 1

Wednesday 6 August, 11 am – 1 pm, The Pines

Whether performing one of her own wonderfully unique tracks or stylishly covering a hit tune, Natalia’s voice is sure to move you. Early influences such as Tina Turner, Michael Jackson, Celine Dion, Whitney Housten and more recently Alicia Keys and Beyonce, play an inspiring part in Natalia’s musical journey.

Week 2

Wednesday 13 August, 11 am – 1 pm, Sculpture Garden

As the front man and creative director behind successful Australian rock/pop outfit End Of Fashion, Justin has already carved out a legacy for himself, releasing three records, earning platinum sales and receiving a multitude of awards including two ARIAs.

Week 3

Don SmithDon Smith

Wednesday 20 August, 11 am – 1 pm, Roving

Don has toured our wide brown country with his inimitable style, winning over audiences of all ages and political persuasions, including a standout performance at The Basement in Sydney for the legendary Amnesty International comedy benefit.

Don’s gift of acute observation of both the political and domestic arenas make him a world-class comedian for adults – and not just latte-loving lefties!

Week 4

RetrofitRetrofit

Wednesday 27 August, 11 am – 1 pm, The Pines

Featuring Bob Brisbane (vocals and percussion), Clem (acoustic guitar) and Shane Pooley (double / electric bass and vocals), Retrofit are a unique blend of recent and classic hits delivered within a very unique and visually exciting look.

The band prides itself on incredibly challenging material and captivating arrangements, making them one of the most sought-after and well-respected live acts in the city. Their repertoire is vast and the band is widely-acknowledged as rearranging, revamping and reinterpreting material.

    Hi Is it possible to speak to someone about the performers costs and contact details please? The Professionals @ Curtin group will be having an end of financial year function and we were thinking of seeing whether one of the performers used by Park’d Performers might be available to provide some light entertainment. Thanks!
