Even though I really wanted to see this play and was stoked when Mistress Butterfly texted me on the way home from work to ask if I would like to come along, I didn't really enjoy it. The story did not capture my imagination. I wanted to relate to something along the lines of writing [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
I saw Joelistics and James Mangonhig from TZU perform tonight. What a treat. We got tickets to ‘In Between Two’ showing as part of the Melbourne Festival. It was a rich tapestry of storytelling, music, comedy and visual delights. Such an amazing and uplifting history.

It took them two years to develop this play in association with the Red Stitch Theatre in St Kilda. It certainly came across as a very polished piece of work. The acting was superb. Especially the actor [...]
I love the theatre. Even when it is bad it is good. There is just something about it. Tonight I went to see Human Error by the Baker's Dozen Theatre Company in North Melbourne. It was interesting and entertaining. The set design and acting was amazing. An AI led end of the world and the [...]
The humble art of housework. It is the most amazing antidote to the web, to the world of business and commerce and being constantly switched 'on'. There is something so satisfying about getting into the physical world and doing something visceral, something physical. I guess exercise is a similar antidote. Or cooking. It takes the [...]
The opera was lovely last night. There is something so refreshing about losing yourself in a complete fantasia of light and music for a couple of hours. This is why I moved to Melbourne. It enriches my soul with wholesome cultural experiences. It was utterly delightful.
