7. SpringFest at Pulse Power
Haven’t discovered the wonders of Power Plate yet? It’s the fitness craze that has been slowly vibrating under the surface: AFL clubs and professional athletes swear by it. The vibrating technology offers a full body workout in as little as 30 minutes thanks to acceleration training. Hyde Park based Pulse Power Studio is offering an open day for you to discover the wonders of this workout with SpringFest, promising a day of fun, fitness, food and massage.

8. Four Colour Season
Head to Nexus Arts this Saturday 15 September and catch dancers from Thomas E.S Kelly’s Karul Projects in Four Colour Season. The traditional four seasons have been depicted in European art and music for centuries, but the Aboriginal experience of the seasons is a much more varied and subtler story that tells of the patterns of animal and plant life and their direct impact on survival. In this sympathetic synthesis of two art forms, The Song Company is joined by a duo of dancers from Karul Projects to trace the course of the Earth’s annual journey in movement and song, both old and new.
The program includes arrangements from Antonio Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons and music ranging from Alice Chance’s Pallah-Pallah to Francis Poulenc’s ‘Un soir de neige’.
Saturday 15 September, 7:30pm to 9:30pm. Nexus Arts Venue, Lion Arts Centre, Cnr Morphett Street and North Terrace, Adelaide. Tickets: $40 – $65
