Fri, 4 Jun 20217:00pm - 08:30pm90 minute performance Friday to Sunday in June
Museum UNDONE
A playful encounter with the Kyneton Museum collection, engaging with history and its gaps, as part performance, part exhibition. Created by cross disciplinary artists and Metanoia Theatre, the work is an immersive choose-your-own journey through collective possibilities for an imagined future. Artists (Maddi Moser, Alexandra Harrison, Janette Hoe, Israel Aloni, Greg Ulfan, Sermsah bin Saad, Görkem Acaroğlu, Yogashree Thirunavukarasu, Kirri Buchler) present work across the Kyneton Museum, in both indoor and outdoor locations. Audiences are free to roam the performance spaces, led only by their curiosity. Internationally acclaimed local visual artist, Desmond Lazaro re-curates the existing collection to immerse audiences in an exploration of our past, present and future. Taungurung artist Maddi Moser creates projections to cover the walls and ceilings both inside and outside the building, and local sound artist Kirri Buchler creates soundscapes to enhance the experience. Taungurung man Dennis Batty provides cultural consultation to the project. Museum UNDONE asks us to consider what the impact of the past is on the present? What are the stories we tell about ourselves? How do we want to be remembered in the future when we are history?

Wine Retreat Weekend
Learn about wine in an engaging escape to the Macedon Ranges – not a stuffy, traditional wine course but a cultural retreat with iconic and new wave winemakers, local produce, and benchmarking our local wines with ‘Old World’ European wines. Hosted at the beautiful Lancemore Spring Hill Estate in Lancefield with presenters Caz Bailey & Kim Pearce. Special guests include Michael Dhillon (Bindi Winegrowers), Ben Rankin (Wilimee & Mount Monument), Patrick Walsh (Cellarhand), and Renata Morello (Lyons Will). Caz and Kim have developed a wine retreat combining the best parts of a wine industry trip without the pretension. They have created guided tastings and course notes, wine games and discussions, local produce-focused menus, and made time to relax in a luxe setting to immerse their guests within the Macedon Ranges. They want guests to come away with likeminded wine-and-foodie folks, learn with lots of practical insights, with no wrong questions, and plenty of fun. The weekend includes:
  • Tasting more than 20 wines (valued at $3,000+)
  • Learn about Macedon Ranges and compare European Chardonnay, Pinot Noir & Champagne,
  • Lively wine panel discussion with special guest winemakers,
  • 5-course tasting menu dinner with local winemakers and importer, and
  • Barrel tasting at a local, new wave winery.
