Hello Asia! Theatre Review: Hong Kong Dance Company’s The Legend of Mulan - The Concourse Theatre, Chatswood (17.09.15)

The Legend of Mulan is a familiar tale, either to those who know its original origin adapted from the epic poem The Ballad of Mulan or to those a little more familiar to the Disney classic. Nonetheless it is a story that is much beloved, with its courageous figurehead an inspiration for all- courage, determination and love both filial and feminine. In this inspired dance adaption by the Hong Kong Dance Company these qualities are shown through stunning choreography and dreamlike finesse.

Hello Asia! Live Review: YouTube FanFest Sydney – Qantas Credit Union, Sydney (11.09.15)

The screams started at 4:30pm for the red carpet and didn’t stop until the end of the two and a half hour 2015 YouTube FanFest, as (mostly pre-teen) fans clamoured for their favourite YouTubers. If you’ve ever wondered what happens when you translate Internet personalities, whose domain is usually the computer screen, into real life, the result is an engaging, interactive experience that is good-natured fun for everybody.

Eating with the AU: Barrafina Tapas - CBD (Sydney)

cheese platter barrafina

For tapas, a cheeky sangria, and a good time, it's hard to beat Barrafina in the heart of the Sydney CBD. The eatery brings Spanish share plates to life. The vibe is casual and playful. A wall is painted with a pertinent expression in Spanish: 'una comida sin vino se llama desayuno' which translates to 'a meal without wine is called breakfast'.

Live Review: Toni Braxton - Sydney Opera House (13.09.15)

All it took was one award winning concept album (last year's Love, Marriage, and Divorce with Babyface) and R&B veteran Toni Braxton found herself back in the music spotlight after years of absence. With encouragement from Babyface, a long-time collaborator and legend in his own right, Braxton was able to channel that energy and re-focus the voice that made her one of the shining stars of 90s contemporary R&B, with about 67 million record sales to boast. It then seems like perfect timing for Braxton to finally make her way down to Australia for a debut tour, playing in some of the country's most renowned venues. Sydney's turn was, of course, in the Concert Hall at the Sydney Opera House, giving us around 1.5 hours with the universally adored performer who very much proved that her return to form is the real deal.
