National Institute of Circus – NICA – Empty Bodies

By | July 7th, 2018|physical theatre|

I really wish that you could have seen the performance at NICA with me this evening. I have never seen anything like it! It is circus, but from I what I can gather, the absolute pinnacle of physical theatre in Australia. Have you ever seen anything as amazing as someone balancing and performing acrobatics on [...]

Firelight Festival – Docklands – June 2018

By | June 30th, 2018|light art, weather|

It is so cold. Apparently we are having the coldest winter in Melbourne for 36 years. I don't mind. It is cosy inside and around the fire, but it definitely feels colder than the previous two years that I have been here. We went to the Firelight Festival at Docklands tonight. It was nice to [...]

Songs of the alternative universes

By | June 11th, 2018|bullshit, daily life, school, Uncategorized|

15 minutes to wash the dishes, half a load of dirty washing, spartan bench tops. My first day off in so many weeks was filled with errands and duties, so it was not really a day off at all, until I got into my hand washing, drive to uni and red wine. Can you believe [...]

wine for the soul – long weekend Sunday

By | June 10th, 2018|daily life, school|

This kind of point in the timeline is when it would be nice to have a little nibble on some electronic chocolate, hehe. It is Sunday evening of the long weekend. I am not really sure why I don't have plans. I thought I would be finishing an assignment, maybe. Still, wine is suffusing through [...]

Cool Out Sun – Melbourne International Jazz Festival

By | June 10th, 2018|bars and restaurants, friends, music|

Last night was the perfect evening in many ways. Just great company, great food, and amazing music. I was so lucky to see Cool Out Sun at the Reverence Hotel last night. I was following my friends into the band room, I could see them just in front of me, and the door bitch said [...]

A brisk winter’s night adventure in Footscray

By | June 9th, 2018|bars and restaurants, daily life, friends, journal|

My evening out in Footscray, exploring delicacies and finding new music makes me realise how grateful I am to live in this city. Something made me look back today, at a messier, more chaotic chapter in my life. It kicked me in the guts a bit, but then I realised, talking to a friend: what [...]

Wings of Desire – Wim Wenders – GFF

By | June 6th, 2018|cinema, daily life, music, photography, technology|

It has only been 20 years since I found out about it, but it was good to finally see Wings of Desire by Wim Wenders. It was the closing night film of the German Film Festival and I absolutely loved it. I felt that it was so incredibly exhilarating to get a birds eye view [...]

A Sunday journey through music

By | June 3rd, 2018|music, professional|

There is a certain type of music that can have the effect of pouring effervescent soda over a fragile soul. Every album brings me a little closer to balance. It is a process of strengthening and soothing. My adventure started with electronic pop, disco and house. A lovely compilation from Eskimo Music. This feels like [...]
