Line up for 2015 Perth International Arts Festival announced

Last week the line-up for the 63rd Perth International Arts Festival was released to the world. It will be the final year in charge for Artistic Director Jonathan Holloway and he certainly seems to determined to leave on a high; with a staggeringly diverse and exciting cultural feast of theatre, music, visual arts, literature and movies.

Perth Festival Review: A Midsummer Night's Dream (As You Like It) - His Majesty's Theatre (15.02.14)

A Midsummer Night’s Dream is up there as one of Shakespeare’s most oft performed plays. \There have been countless as adaptations and reinterpretations over the years, but I’d imagine there are few as wonderfully strange and eclectic as Russian director Dmitry Krymov’s interpretation A Midsummer Night’s Dream (As You Like It). As clichéd as it sounds, this is Shakespeare as you have in all likelihood never seen it before.

Perth Festival Review: An Iliad - Sunken Gardens, Perth (16.02.14)

Heroes and tyrants, Gods and Mortals, and ancient armies all clashed on stage on Sunday night. All of them brought to vivid life by one man, actor and co-writer Denis O’Hare, for the Australian premiere of the An Iliad. A captivating and engaging adaptation and reinterpretation of Homer’s Iliad by US collective Homer’s Coat, that forms part of the Perth International Arts Festival this year.

Over his three decade career, Italy’s Ludovico Einaudi has become one of the world’s most celebrated and well regarded pianists and composers. From his award-winning scores of Luce dei miei occhi and Sotto falso nome putting him in an enviable category alongside fellow Italian composers like Morricone, to his debut in the Western cinematic world with This Is England  and a slew of his own material, including the 2013 release  In a Time Lapse, Einaudi has been nothing short of prolific.
