SYDNEY FESTIVAL

Sydney Festival Review: Opera Australia's The Rabbits - Roslyn Packer Theatre, Sydney (Performances to 24th January)

The Rabbits, written by John Marsden and illustrated by Shaun Tan, is an extraordinary piece of work. It takes important historical events and recreates its message in a haunting picture book- reaching children and adults alike. It does not shy away from what it needs to say. The adaption of this work into this opera not only seeks to extend the book’s powerful message, but it manages to create an entirely new and equally extraordinary piece of work.

Exclusive Video Interview: Pat Mahoney talks "Atomic Bomb! The Music of William Onyeabor" ahead of Bonnaroo

Back in January, we presented a special video featuring the team behind the Sydney Festival production Atomic Bomb! The Music of William Onyeabor and now, with the show popping up all over the world, including at the upcoming Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Tennessee later this month, we thought we'd bring you the FULL interview, unseen until now, of LCD Soundsystem's Pat Mahoney who talks more about how the show all came to be...

Sydney Festival Review: The Artist Live in Concert - Sydney Opera House (23.01.14)

Made in 2011, The Artist came to become the most awarded film in French history, winning five Oscars, seven BAFTAs and three Golden Globes. Bringing the film to the Sydney Opera House was the films original composer Ludovic Bource, as well as the original conductor Ernst Van Tiel. The Artist Live in Concert had been performed across Europe and London, however this was an Australian exclusive.

Sydney Festival Live Review: Cornelius Presents salyu x salyu - The Aurora (23.01.15)

Japanese contempo-pop singer Salyu brought her salyu x salyu show to Australia for the first time. One of the more curious additions to this year’s Sydney Festival program, the show was a collaboration with Japanese super producer Cornelius, seeing the singer stretching her voice as an instrument, utilizing loop pedals and multiple harmonies to create soundscapes.

Sydney Festival Live Review: Dan Deacon - The Aurora (22.01.15)

Filing into pop-up circus tent The Aurora at 11:45pm on a weekday may not inspire much energy in itself, but it's almost impossible to feel weary once you step inside the colourful and perky world of Dan Deacon. The American electronic musician is renowned for his unique live shows, which often involve various communal, ice-breaking mini games serving as interludes between his highly animated, effervescent productions.

Sydney Festival Review: On The Harmful Effects of Tobacco - Drama Theatre, Sydney Opera House (Final Performance Tonight!)

There are three ticking metronomes on stage. “Tick tick tick” they echo around the theatre as the audience files in. Far from keeping any sort of time with each other however, they are irregular and manic. “Tick TICK… tick”. You almost breathe a sigh of relief when Nioukhine, performed by Michel Robin, shuffles on stage to stop the metronomes one by one, as the lights dim and On The Harmful Effects of Tobacco begins.

Sydney Festival Review: The Kitchen (Performances Until 25th January 2015)

All that is in front of you is a giant three-tiered structure as you file into York Theatre, taking a seat and waiting for two actors - Dilip Shankar and Mandakini Goswami to take their place in the centre of the stage, behind two very large pots. In The Kitchen, these two Indian actors are portraying a couple focused on seeing through the entire process of making payasam, a sweet Asian rice pudding. We sit and watch them stir the pot both literally and figuratively for the duration of the performance, taking in the various smells that come wafting up around the indoor amphitheater throughout. The crucial ingredient though, is not anything they sprinkle into the pot; it's a thrilling soundtrack provided by 12 tightly focused and disciplined drummers.

Sydney Festival Photo Gallery: The Kitchen - Seymour Centre (Performances until 25th January)

Take a look at the incredible production that is The Kitchen - a show about the healing power of cooking - in this photo gallery by Nathan Atkins. The show is part of Sydney Festival and continues until the 25th of January. Tickets and more details can be found HERE and the photos are below!

Sydney Festival Live Review: Kirin J Callinan - The Aurora (15.01.15)

Sydney artist Kirin J Callinan was at his idiosyncratic best as his transformed The Aurora, a pop up spiegeltent as part of Sydney Festival, into a late-night rock-rave of throbbing 80s electronica and clangy industrial rock. The very slick, very confident performer speaks in a low growl-slash-whisper when he addresses the crowd, almost as if he's trying to impersonate Christian Bale in The Dark Knight, flirting with his fans in a wholly entertaining, often uncomfortable and always hilarious way.

Urban Theatre Project's Artistic Director Rosie Dennis talks Bankstown: Live (January 22nd to 25th)
