Inner Nature – Melbourne Fringe Festival

By | September 23rd, 2018|parks and gardens, theatre|

There is something about seeing live theatre that is so incredibly rich and engaging. Last night I went to see Inner Nature at the Loop Bar Project Space. The play was written by: Ariel de Ramos Molina and performed by Elizabeth Howes, and was a really interesting exploration about the effect that technology is having [...]

How I met my dead husband – Melbourne Fringe

By | September 20th, 2018|music, relationships, theatre|

I really enjoyed Lansy Feng's performance of How I met my dead husband, at the Gasworks as part of Melbourne Fringe Festival tonight. Although the plot followed the character through four successive lifetimes trying to reconnect with the one man who touched her hand, and who then went and married someone else, the point seemed [...]

‘Sketch me like one of your French girls’ – David Massingham – MICF

By | April 8th, 2018|art, comedy, theatre|

Even the title is provocative. A quick search of the internet reveals that there are whole discussions regarding to the deeper meaning of this quote from the Titanic movie. He was hilarious. From Zeke the recovering alcoholic at an AA meeting, who repeatedly blows his quit to the tune of 'Pina Colada', to the spam [...]

Glittery Clittery – the Fringe Wives Club – MICF

By | April 8th, 2018|comedy, music, theatre|

Amazing. The Fringe Wives Club Glittery Clittery - Consensual REBOOT was the most stunning piece of empowering musical comedy I have ever seen. The costumes were amazing (think complete sequinned pantsuits), the music was really fun (catchy cabaret), and the jokes completely hit the mark. How long is the clitoris? How many nerve endings does [...]

The Aspie Hour – musical theatre – MICF – Butterfly Club

By | March 27th, 2018|comedy, music, theatre|

It is rare to see such emotional vulnerability in the world. In theatre, usually someone is 'playing' a character. There is a subtext that the character is imagined, or that it is some kind of creation of a writer, a director, a producer, and an actor. I am not saying that is a bad thing, [...]

Bashka – World music Saturday

By | March 24th, 2018|art, comedy, literature, music, theatre|

It is always fun to come home after a festival and look up the music of the bands I saw. Bashka is a Turkish band, and their music feels so rich on this cosy, rainy Saturday morning. World music on the weekend. It transports me to places I have never seen but only heard about [...]

Venus in Fur – Lightning Jar Theatre

By | March 14th, 2018|theatre|

Wow!! What an amazing piece of theatre. We went to the opening night of Venus in Fur last night. It was written by David Ives, starring Darcy Kent and Tilly Legge. It was intriguing right until the end, and made me realise again today that sometimes the person who withholds information and their motive is [...]

nerves before an adventure in the world with friends

By | November 16th, 2017|daily life, design, friends, professional, theatre|

I am a bit nervous about going out tonight. I am going to see some theatre with Maximilien and some other people. We are going to have drinks and dinner beforehand. Work has become so enjoyable, and so incredibly productive, since I have signed up to a few new things, and getting out into the [...]
