The cities, they tremble exhibition is coming to Metro Arts this month!

When speaking of our ‘sounding’ environments, the distinction between the body and its environment becomes blurred—our bodies literally resonate with our surroundings through the vibration of sound. By foregrounding everyday ambient sounds, the listener becomes more aware of the sounds that are constantly being processed by their body.   //   The cities, they tremble examines how sound in its ephemerality allows us not simply to react to our surroundings as they ...

Bitch on Heat is coming to the Brisbane Festival

Absurdist lip-synch meets high-camp performance art in this pop-fuelled critique of sexual politics in the age of implied consent. Nothing is sacred as psycho-siren Leah Shelton, directed by UK provocateur Ursula Martinez, trawls through a Pandora’s box of ancient myths, porn, pop-culture, instructional records and revenge movie heroines. Welcome to the doghouse. Beware. This Bitch bites. //   "★★★★★ - Smart and hilarious, Bitch On Heat doesn’t waste a single ...

Freaks Movie Review

Seven year old Chloe (Lexy Kolker) lives in squalor with her farther (played by Emile Hirsch). He seems almost completely unhinged and Chloe is prohibited from having any contact with the outside world. Chloe deals with this isolation by living in a fantasy world or so it would appear.   //   The outside world is in a strange way, having to deal with beings that have powers, Freaks as they are referred to. They are rounded up and sequestered away in a mysterious location ...

Fangirls Theatre Review

Edna is fourteen years old and in love for the first time. Her object of desire is pop star Harry. He’s completely unobtainable but that does little to stop her compulsion. She and her girl friends all have the same crush, but Edna is not the type of girl to be easily denied. What starts out light and of good cheer turns dark as infatuation turns into obsession. First love often times knows no bounds and Edna is razor sharp in her wants. As things spiral out of control, the comments on ...

The Angry Birds Movie 2 – Movie Review

It starts somewhat conventionally and the first reel takes its time filling you in on the details. From that point on however, it’s an all out effort to zig when you think it will zag. Anarchy is a word that comes to mind. There is even a scene that feels like it could have easily come from the mind of Quentin Tarantino. //   At times it tends to be overly cute and the vibrant colours rival that of a lolly shop but then more often than not if turns convention on its head and ...

From Darkness Theatre Review

Anger and fear have created a divide that becomes filled with selfish outbursts and recriminating discourse. The love that exists is challenged and through the white noise of profanity and unchecked rage, beacons of light begin to burst through. This emerging flame of illumination emits from the spiritual centre that all humans possess but one that is slowly extinguished by a separation of one’s spiritual self. In this case it takes the distraction free focus of the young to empower ...

Downton Abbey Movie Review

Having lost touch wit the TV series a few seasons back, it was reassuring that all the main characters have returned. The screenplay by Julian Fellowes (Gosford Park and Vanity Fair) still capitalises on the show’s MVP and writes some great lines for Violet Crawley (Maggie Smith) and she comically spars with everyone she converses with. //   The story based on the impending visit of the King and Queen is used as the basis of an us against them tale. The staff of Downton Abbey ...

The Voice alumni to join the cast of FANGIRLS!

Created by and co-starring the edgy, charismatic young comedian, composer, playwright and Aussie IT girl, Yve Blake and featuring a score that’s equal parts Beyoncé concert, religious revival and dirty warehouse rave, Fangirls will make its world premiere in the Bille Brown Theatre in Brisbane on September 7, before opening in Sydney at Belvoir Theatre on October 12. A Queensland Theatre, Belvoir and Brisbane Festival co-production in association with the Australian Theatre for Young ...

Watch the official debut trailer for Just Mercy!

Instead, he heads to Alabama to defend those wrongly condemned or who were not afforded proper representation, with the support of local advocate Eva Ansley. One of his first, and most incendiary, cases is that of Walter McMillian, who, in 1987, was sentenced to die for the notorious murder of an 18-year-old girl, despite a preponderance of evidence proving his innocence and the fact that the only testimony against him came from a criminal with a motive to lie. //   In the years ...
