Brought to the stage by an emerging troupe led by Jasmine Leech, this rendition of Rhinoceros is entertaining, faithful to Ionesco’s vision, and aesthetically pleasing. The whole production had a very classic theatre feel to it, which definitely suits Rhinoceros well, given […]

Everybody Dies, Adelaide Fringe Festival 2016

No Comments 26 February 2016

I imagined that Everybody Dies would be a gory, yet educational performance. The morbid title and the controversial topic of vaccination may lead one to believe that adults are performing the production. However, audiences will be pleasantly surprised to discover that it is presented by SAYarts, an Adelaide youth theatre company. According to director, Claire Glenn, when presented […]

Welcome to the Future: The Dark Social, Melbourne Fashion Festival Cultural Program 2016

No Comments 23 February 2016

The Dark Social was Fred Hates Fashion’s first foray into the still exhibition landscape and was a celebration of five designers they have worked with previously: Vincent Li, Jasmine Alexa, Yesterdays Virgins, Matcho Suba and Millie Mosca. The choice in designers was a considered one, diverse in skill and aesthetic; this only made the show, as a whole, stronger. It also displayed the manifold talent of the Melbourne fashion scene and demanded the viewer to take notice of each designer’s individuality. Vanessa Gerrie reviews.

The Pianist by Thomas Monckton & Circo Aereo, Adelaide Fringe Festival 2016

1 Comment 22 February 2016

Thomas Monckton’s one man show, The Pianist, reminded me of watching a kitten play with its tail for an hour – you can’t look away. He’s also ridiculously energetic, confused, and excitable. He tries very hard to make everything exactly perfect and, in so doing, causes things to go terribly wrong. You can’t help but […]
