dark mofo: review

Ad Hoc
One comment

Dark MOFO shines as Australia’s most highly anticipated arts event of the cold and miserly months, achieving this extraordinary feat in only three short years. In a time when our government is intent on squashing independent arts in Australia, I am personally thankful that MONA exists. The benevolent wealthy will potentially keep cultural life in…

emerge in the west: review

Theertha Muralidhar
No comments

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. A potpourri of emerging top artists hailing from Ethiopia, Sudan, South Africa, Papua New Guinea…

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…

comedy review: frank woodley and simon yates’ ‘inside’

Amy Nicholls-Diver
No comments

  Inside is a captivating and bizarre show by Frank Woodley and acrobat/physical comedian Simon Yates. Performed in the Famous Spiegeltent as part of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Inside is a must-see for those looking some something out-there this comedy season. It is edgy and often nonsensical, reminiscent of Samuel Beckett’s absurdist plays. Woodley’s…

  A fiery Spanish mama called Amparo Sanchez cooks albóndigas for you (and the rest of the crowd in the open tent), speaking in the rhythmic, lisping tongue of a Catalan native. Her stories of Spanish food, a family cooking together, and gender inequality are translated while four screens around the tent show the view…

I recently had a chat with Hamilton to discuss his collaboration…

Confessions from a girl who doesn’t ‘get’ Visual Art: A review of the Paste-Up Project

I have a confession: This morning I woke up in a cold sweat when I remembered that I was reviewing the first day of the Paste-Up Project (a You Are Here festival event that involves turning the outside wall of the Canberra Museum and Gallery into an open-air gallery). I called myself a variety of…
