Inflorescence, You Are Here

No Comments 25 March 2015

The Street Theatre Saturday March 21 Those arriving for Inflorescence at The Street Theatre were greeted with a dimmed room full of delicate, hand-crafted paper flowers. Butterflies on the walls formed the words “breathe” and “care”. The attention to detail – each crinkled petal, the lace-like perforations on draped paper – was exquisite. The audience […]

Ill-Advised Night Out, You Are Here

Eucapocalypts Now, You Are Here

No Comments 23 March 2015

When the apocalypse hits there will be no tidal waves in Canberra, no cyclones, probably not even any flooding. Instead, there will be raging fire fronts, brown sludge in water pipes and the gradual, slow decline of the world as we know it. When the apocalypse happens and the ground is baked hard from sun […]

Zak and Reefa’s Bollywood Funeral, You Are Here

No Comments 22 March 2015

I am going to begin this piece by associating Zak and Reefa’s Bollywood Funeral with an adjective not commonly associated with funerals – enjoyment. Writer Tasnim Hossain and directors Casey Elder and Chris Brain achieved this not only once but twice. The play was split into two parts, each performed on separate nights, in a […]
