Eve and Next In Line

No Comments 15 October 2012

The performers in Eve and Next in line are all students at ‘The Space’, a dance and arts centre in Prahran. This school obviously breeds a love of dance and expression in its students and the opportunity to perform in the Melbourne Fringe Festival is a fantastic learning experience for these young people. The night […]

In The Cut: Volume 3

No Comments 14 October 2011

Impressive street art, dope DJs, MCs and then, for good measure, throw in a few sexy saxophones. In The Cut Volume 3 took place in a Carlton basement – its walls covered in artwork – all created by Melbourne street artists. Ranging from impressive full-scale prints of beautiful, curvaceous Native American babes, to cardboard-based political […]

Life is Something

No Comments 09 October 2011

Directed by Vlady T and written by his alter ego Bradley William George Klendo, ‘Life is Something’ addresses the absurdity of life and our chase for its meaning with a decent bunch of odd characters. Mark (Leigh Ormsby) and Cathy (Rebecca Fortuna) love each other but their dissatisfaction with their banal lives start to ebb […]

Just Like The Movies

No Comments 09 October 2011

Richmond’s The Owl and the Pussycat is like one of the friendliest haunted houses you’ll ever come across. Stumble, dripping wet from rain, and be led up a dark, creaky staircase, into performance space The Runcible Spoon. Once seated cozily, chat with the handful of audience members and have a glass of red. Don’t be […]

The Contortion and Hand-balancing Spectacular!

No Comments 09 October 2011

Stepping off Chapel St and climbing up the stairs to Red Bennies is like going into another world. Red light shines everywhere, candles and cocktails sit on small tables upstairs and there is a small stage that looks like it was transported out of the set of The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus. Red Bennies isn’t […]

Death in a box…one pussy’s tale!

No Comments 07 October 2011

A haunting chime sets the scene for Mandie Combe’s ‘Death in a box…one pussy’s tale!’ The chime ringing until Combe’s partner, Tony Johannsen enters with guitar in hand and begins his song; his considered lyrics and strong melodies forming the foundations for the rest of the performance. The actors, Combe and Johannsen, are a real […]

Snatches

No Comments 07 October 2011

Directed by Lynne Ellis and featuring emerging RMIT writers, performers and friends, Snatches is a production of short plays, readings, dance and standup comedy. Having little knowledge on the history of Snatches (which is in its 12th year, according to the program), I went into this performance with lower expectations. I was extremely surprised. The […]

Bluey by Phil Spencer

No Comments 07 October 2011

It’s safe to say Phil Spencer’s solo performance will be the only show at the Fringe Festival that will have you browsing monkey puppets on eBay well into the morning. In Bluey, Spencer uses a monkey puppet Alfred to tell the story of his father, a British RAF Sergeant sent off to Iraq for six […]

Mystic Bubblegum

No Comments 07 October 2011

Throw together two fourteen year old besties, a magical crystal and an octopus stripper with massive mammaries, and the colourful result is ‘Mystic Bubblegum’, a live art show which mashes Harry Potter, The Labyrinth and flamboyantly ridiculous costumes and burst of songs enough to make the likes of The Mighty Boosh jealous. ‘Mystic Bubblegum’ turn […]

Fiona O’Loughlin in Don’t Get Me Started

No Comments 06 October 2011

What an experience. I have never been so emotionally moved, looking back it almost doesn’t seem real. Fiona filled more than one person’s eyes with tears at the end and it wasn’t from laughter. No.  It was sad. Sad to watch a lady with such talent breakdown before us. I just don’t know what to […]
