CIRCUS KNOCK OFF Lunar Circus Big Top, Rooftop Movies Review: Jordan Nix The boys from Knock Off have really been knocked around recently, making their debut in Perth quite a spectacular feat.

Flossy and Me

MUSIC Flossy and Me Circus Theatre Review: Jordan Nix The artists who take their work to fringe festivals must be congratulated for having the guts to take part in what can be a risky adventure with sometimes little financial pay off. This risk also makes it that extra bit more disappointing to see a show […]

Mechronos

STREET THEATRE Mechronos Perth Cultural Centre REVIEW: Jordan Nix There was a moment in Mechronos when two children bickering in the crowd suddenly stopped with their mouths open, frozen with wonder. Above them, aerial artists are dangling perilously above the Mechronos machine, somersaulting through the air. Their bodies make beautiful silhouettes in the setting sun. […]

Knock Off

No Comments 04 October 2012

The award-winning Three High Acrobatics bring us their show Knock Off, a high-energy, hilarious contemporary circus act following three tradies on an ‘average’ work day. Donning fluro wife-beaters, the three tradies convert a work-site into a place for circus tricks and slap-stick comedy. Hammers are juggled, ladders are dived through and fighting between the blokes […]

Life and laughs under the waves in Eric’s Tales of the Sea

No Comments 18 February 2012

Eric doesn’t look like your average comedian, nor is his show an average comedy show, but there’s a very good reason for that. Eric – first name only – has spent his life onboard Royal Navy nuclear submarines and although he says he hates the way Hollywood portrays submarines, the stories he tells in Eric’s Tales […]

Good, clean family magic in Simon Coronel’s Manipulations

No Comments 18 February 2012

Short sleeves, cheeky grin and very good hands are how Simon Coronel rolls in his one-man illusionist show, Manipulations. There is no doubt that Coronel is world-class; he has won the Australian Society of Magician’s Annual Competition four years in a row and is only the fourth Australian in history to place at the World […]

Tales of the lonely and broken in Walk in Dirt

No Comments 16 February 2012

Despite first being performed almost a decade ago, the topics explored in Stephen House’s Walk in Dirt still feel current and perhaps even more relevant today. The show follows an unnamed man as he walks through his rubbish-filled street and into the dark urban underworld, meeting a series of bizarre and fractured characters. It is […]

Channelling Dolly Parton in Hope is the Saddest

No Comments 10 February 2012

I admit the mention and promise of Dolly Parton had me sold on seeing Hope Is The Saddest before I knew anything more about the play, but I was adamant that my love of country music would not get in the way of my critique. Thankfully, this show is so delightful charming and funny that […]

Unsettling night for Sleepyhead

No Comments 10 February 2012

The sold-out premiere season of Sleepyhead was critically applauded in Melbourne for its gothic undertones and wicked dark humour, but unfortunately its hometown debut doesn’t get it quite right. Set in rural Australia, we meet Eleanor (Amy Murray) and Genevieve (Louise Cocks), two very different sisters alone and isolated from the world by their Dad […]
