The streets of Ouyen will soon be home to bush ballads, prose and poetry penned by locals as part of Ouyen’s Mallee Up in Lights Small Town Transformation.
The Mallee up in Lights project invites people to compose a poem about the Mallee and what it means to them. The poems will then be displayed on chalk boards set up at different sites throughout Ouyen for people to enjoy.

A co-production between Force Majeure and Belvoir, Food combines elements of drama, comedy, dance and cookery in an erotic mix of words and movement.
Rodgers co-directed Food with acclaimed choreographer Kate Champion, Artistic Director of Force Majeure. Together Rogers and Champion have crafted a communion between the audience and the characters as they come together around the dining table.
Elma (Mel King) and Nancy (Emma Jackson) are sisters. Nancy left their remote, truck stop home many years ago; Elma stayed. Nancy chose chaos, freedom and sex; Elma stayed behind and cooked. Now Nancy has returned and their lives are disrupted by the arrival of Hakan Leventoglu (Fayssal Bazzi) ‘Hassan, son of Handsom’, a restless Turkish traveller.
A play called FOOD would not be complete without the real thing. At each performance selected members of the audience will be served supper.
FOOD has been described as ".." a delicious piece of theatre" to "..a robust meal – warm, substantial, and completely delicious.".
