The Idea of North – Ballads by Candlelight

No Comments 24 February 2013

Cathedral full. A good sign. They promised ‘balladic splendour’ and they delivered. The Idea of North’s Ballads by Candlelight was a treat for the ears and the soul. Despite the stifling hot weather, St Peter’s Cathedral is packed. A soft applause starts and four people walk down, past the front altar. They are The Idea of […]

As far as comedians go, Arj Barker’s quick wit and sharp-tongued delivery puts him up there with the best of them. But in this case, you’d be forgiven for thinking you’d unwittingly bought tickets to an amateur one-man musical. As Barker says himself, Go Time is both ‘what audiences expect from me AND the last […]

Sound & Fury’s ‘Hamlet and Juliet’

No Comments 23 February 2013

Have you ever wondered what would happen if you took two of Shakespeare’s tragedies – Romeo and Juliet and Hamlet – and smashed them together? The three gentlemen from Sound & Fury have combined the tales of the star-crossed lovers and the procrastinating prince into a true ‘Fakespearean’ (their word, not mine) masterpiece. The action […]

Sage

No Comments 22 February 2013

The set is the first thing about Chloe Eckert’s Sage to strike you. Family portraits and pages torn from novels form a web of words, spun from the crucial cliff top. The story that ensues upon the entrance of the play’s tortured protagonist, and the words used to tell it, are just as powerful and […]

“There goes the security deposit.” Lily looks at the bloodied, rolled up carpet on her apartment floor while Phil pants desperately, wielding a baseball bat. If you have a taste for black comedy and physical humour and don’t get squeamish at the sight of blood, then Fairly Lucid Productions’ ‘Raton Laveur’ is well worth a […]

Remnants Found In You

No Comments 21 February 2013

Usually a piece of contemporary dance has me wishing my body would move with such grace and fluidity. I envy the imagination of the choreographer. Many times I have cried; actual tears. Remnants Found In You certainly has its moving moments. The performance takes place at the Lion Arts Centre with a relaxed, cabaret-style seating […]

No Comments 19 February 2013

Does the sight of a blue police box excite you? Do you think that the best item to have with you at all times is a screwdriver? Do you have a love/hate relationship with the BBC? Does the idea of a cyborg ostensibly armed with a plunger and a whisk frighten you? Do you enjoy running? Would you like a jelly baby?

RadioHead Redux

No Comments 18 February 2013

Maybe this show should come with a disclaimer: does not actually contain any Radiohead songs, references, or Thom Yorke-inspired dance moves (see Lotus Flower). It does, however, contain a few Michael Jackson moves, a smattering of popular music and a number of entertaining jokes and tales from UK observational comedian Dan Willis. Willis’ hour-long show […]

If you can imagine the love child of Spoon and Mumford & Sons, then you’ll have a rough idea of what Thom Lion has to offer in his self-titled show. The Adelaide-born indie/pop musician showcases some heartfelt and engaging lyrics this Fringe season, as well as his talents on various instruments. His momentum as a […]
