all my love: review

Bridget Conway
No comments

We can all relate to the struggle that teachers go through when they try to teach history. Things that have happened in the past can often be a bore and leave students feeling uninspired. So, when you set out to create a “period piece” of sorts i.e. a history lesson presented on the live theatre…

Enter the bedazzling land of the West! On May 16th, Footscray’s Nicholson Street came alive with the rich cultures of Africa at Emerge in the West Festival.  Waves of vibrant traditions washed over me as I strolled through the avenue.

festival review: WOMADelaide

Lou Heinrich
One comment

WOMADelaide is not your usual music festival. Sure, there are the teens strutting in groups, with festival-appropriate attire and the right-shaped sunglasses, but there are also toddlers running around the thick grass and, later, small children asleep on their parents’ ponchos spread across the ground. There are picnics and tents for napping and a sense…

film review: the little death

Emma Robinson
No comments

“Whatever happened to good all fashioned, run-of-the-mill sex? People have to complicate it with all this kinky shit.” Josh Lawson makes his directorial debut with The Little Death, a sitcom-esque movie about a group of couples exploring their sexual desires and kinks. The fetishes are varied and often bizarre, but the characters are believable and…

exploring the grotesque with artist mimi leung

Phylisa Wisdom
No comments

Artist (painter, illustrator and printmaker) Mimi Leung has a fascinating ability to make the grotesque adorable. Depending on whether the work is commissioned or Leung’s own, it exists somewhere on a spectrum of cartoony to psychedelic, but is always brightly coloured. When I attended the recent opening of her current “Australian Roadkill” show at Lamington…

GaymerX is a convention for LGBT gamers and allies with the aim of making everyone in the community feel welcome and accepted. Like any other gaming convention, GaymerX is full of panels, parties, devs and publishers showing off their games. How it differs to other cons is in its focus on inclusion; things like gender…

feminartsy at canberra’s front gallery café: a review

Brianna Doolan
One comment

It was just another icy Friday evening in the cold heart of Canberra. The quiet of Northbourne Avenue indicated that all of the public servants had gone home to hibernate, most likely celebrating the weekend with cups of tea and what I imagine to be an endless supply of snuggies. I, on the other hand,…

film review: galore

Emma Robinson
No comments

Teenagers can be bizarre creatures. They spend a lot of time operating in states of supreme self-absorption, almost casually inflicting considerable mental and physical pain on those they claim to love. And yet occasionally they come out with acts of pure bravery or selflessness. All of these capabilities and more are on display in Australia’s…
