Eliza Graves-Browne
No comments

David McAllister’s production of The Sleeping Beauty first premiered in 2015. Although it has made slight changes to content since then, it is still a lavish and extravagant production. As the most expensive production in the company’s history, no cent was wasted to create a stunning set design and exorbitant costumes. The aesthetics of the…

Hannah Rogers
No comments

Imagine this… a society that thinks it is strange to see a woman who is independent­. They think it’s odd to find a woman who won’t be shushed, who is vocal, who doesn’t define herself in relation to a man—a woman who wants to fight back against oppression. This is the fantasy world of Wonder…

women in technology at the CeBIT Technology and Business Summit

Eden Faithfull
No comments

Walking into the CeBIT Conference is not unlike being ushered into some revolutionary space-age marketplace, where suit-and-lanyard-clad businessmen smile knowingly at you from behind a thousand different shimmering screens: laptops, iPads and feature walls with PowerPoints projected across them. CeBIT is APAC’s largest and longest running technology exhibition and conference, and it is an essential…

Made up of ten languid and dreamy tracks recorded with Noah Georgeson (who has previously recorded the likes of Joanna Newson and Devendra Banheart), it is a must listen for those contemplative tram rides and sleepless late nights.

When I first walked into Howler’s spacious band room the crowd was sparse but the warm, orange and yellow lighting was already setting the mood. Closet Straights didn’t keep us waiting long, bringing their cool, folky vibes to the stage. Their country-esque fashion sense, rolling guitar riffs and the warm lighting transformed the empty room…
