PERTH

Theatre Review: Fracture - Blue Room Theatre, Perth (Performances through June 27th)

Fracture, the penultimate work in the current season at Perth’s Blue Room Theatre, is the first work from emerging playwright and WAAPA student Lucy Clements. Directed by the ubiquitous Joe Lui, Fracture examines the aftermath of familial trauma and the isolation that can result from grief.

Theatre Review: Jesus: An Ordinary Life - Blue Room Theatre, Perth (Performances through July 4th)

He’s not the Messiah, he’s a very naughty boy! Or rather more accurately in this case, he’s a neurotic actor, with just the right sized nose and a slight drinking problem; tasked by the Ancient Israeli equivalent of Don Draper, with spreading the word of this new fangled religion – Christianity.

Photo Gallery: Hermitude + Basenji + Jaytee - Metropolis, Fremantle (12.06.15)

Hermitude at Metropolis Fremantle

Hermitude kicked off their Dark Night Sweet Light tour with an impressive performance at a sold out show at Metropolis Fremantle. Our photographer Stuart Sevastos was there to bring us the highlights of the night.

Arts Review: An Evening With Cornel West - The Astor Theatre, Perth (10.06.15)

Fresh from his crowd pleasing appearance on ABC’s Q&A, American philosopher and activist Cornel West appeared at The Astor Theatre in Perth for the first of a series of lectures around Australia, speaking primarily about race relations and the forced closures of aboriginal communities.

Arts Review: The Epic - The Blue Room Theatre (Performances Through June 13th)

The Epic is the brainchild of performance poets and storytellers Finn O’Branagáin and Scott Sandwich. It is a gathering of myths, stories and legends from across the globe brought together and woven into an evening of exaggeration, hyperbole and humour. It’s not a play; both Finn and “Scott” are quick to point out from the outset that neither of them are actors. It is at times however wonderfully theatrical – with many a flailing limb, dramatic pause, or witty interjection from the wings.

Theatre Review: The Song Was Wrong - Studio Underground, Perth (Performances through June 20th)

The Song Was Wrong is the third production in Perth Theatre Company's 2015 season and sees Artistic Director Melissa Cantwell take on both writing and directorial duties. The Song Was Wrong, the story of a love-struck Australian musician Christian and his French muse Cecile, is an utterly beautifully pensive and poetic piece, a quality addition to what has already been a strong season of theatre for the company.

Photo Gallery: sleepmakeswaves + Gay Paris + Sparkspitter - Rosemount Hotel, Perth (30.05.15)

Sleepmakeswaves plays at the Rosemount Hotel

The next stop for sleepmakeswaves was the Rosemount Hotel in Perth where they delivered an awesome show. Supporting them were Gay Paris and Sparkspitter. The one and only Stuart Sevastos was there to bring us these photos!

Theatre Review: Under This Sun - The Blue Room Theatre, Perth (Performances until 6th June)

Under this Sun is the debut work from Perth’s latest budding theatre company, The Emergence Co. Directed by Warwick Doddrell, Under This Sun follows the escapades of three young twenty somethings as they, each for their own reasons (some more misguided than others), make their way into the unforgiving landscape of the Australian outback. I went into this production with high hopes, and I’m pleased to say Under This Sun did not disappoint. For their first production together, Emergence Co. really knocked it out of the park, setting the bar pretty high for future productions.

Live Review: Count Basie Orchestra - Perth Concert Hall (16.05.15)

Last week, the tour celebrating the 80th Anniversary of the legendary Count Basie Orchestra reached Perth and the Perth Concert Hall. Now under the leadership of Scotty Barnhart, the 18-piece orchestra played two, hour-long sets to an appreciative and attentive audience of young and old.

Theatre Review: Once We Were Kings - Blue Room Theatre, Perth (Performances until 29th May)

Once We Were Kings is the latest work from Perth theatre company Third Culture Kids. Written by Dure Khan and directed by Mustafa Al Mahdi, Once We Were Kings explores what it means to be young, "queer" and Muslim and navigating the cultural minefield of contemporary Australia.
