Low Level Panic, Melbourne Fringe 2016

No Comments 30 September 2016

Words by Eleanor Boydell Full disclosure: I’m a dead-set feminist. Give me women or give me nothing. Radical, liberal, personal, political – don’t care, I’ll take it all, wave upon wave. I’m never sure if it’s in spite of my feminism or because of it that art and media which claims to represent the experience […]

If you’re not familiar, Cards Against Humanity is a 2011 game involving two sets of cards: one white, one black. White cards contain random words and phrases on them while black cards contain sentences and […]

The Sequel, Melbourne Fringe 2016

No Comments 26 September 2016

Words by Eliza Janssen  There’s a full reservoir of saliva in my mouth, but I’m afraid that with the agonising silence on stage, a gulp would get too much attention; sounds of other audience members swallowing and shifting convince me to hold out. Finally, the cast of dance piece The Sequel give in, and begin […]

Mama Alto: Extravaganza, Melbourne Fringe 2016

No Comments 25 September 2016

Words by Tom Taylor Mama Alto is finishing her Extravaganza. She is part way through one of her last songs when she stops. She is standing among the audience in the Ballroom at the Lithuanian Club and she is asking us how we want the song to end. She can do a “big, small, big” […]

Awesome Ocean Party, Melbourne Fringe 2016

No Comments 23 September 2016

Words by Eleanor Boydell When you meet someone for the first time, you should tell them interesting facts about yourself. You speak a little Japanese. You’re an excellent problem solver. You taught yourself to play recorder. You have three hearts and your blood is purple. Wait, what? Downstairs at the Butterfly Club, I’m at the […]

Echoes, Melbourne Fringe 2016

Word by Eleanor Boydell “I have been the plaything of men for too long. Now, I will decide my own destiny.” This quote speaks to the resolution achieved at the end of Echoes, a play by Henry Naylor. It’s the story of two women divided by culture and 175 years, but drawn together in a […]

COSMONAUT, Melbourne Fringe 2016

No Comments 20 September 2016

Words by Eliza Janssen Don’t be deceived into thinking Cosmonaut is simply a one-man show. As soon as the house lights dim, writer and performer Ryan Good ropes some poor rube in the front row into a series of increasingly intimate acts inspired by the questionable romantic advice of women’s magazine Cosmopolitan. For privacy’s sake, let’s call […]

You Must Come Alone To Read The Last Book On Earth, Melbourne Fringe 2016

No Comments 20 September 2016

Words by Brianna Bullen I sit alone at a desk. I’m at a library at the end of a long line of restaurants in Docklands, overlooking the water. I can see through a strip of glass outside to construction sites, half-finished but dense, as the book seems to be at times. Ripe for transformation. The […]

Area 51, Melbourne Fringe 2016

No Comments 20 September 2016

Words by Fabrice Wilmann As I entered the small basement-like space of Clover Club in Albert Park, I was greeted by the now-sombre sounds of Starman by David Bowie. As I left, the entire cast was dancing to the theme song from Men in Black – donning mandatory black sunglasses of course. AREA 51 is […]
