Nourish the body and mind at Dancenorth’s dinner party with a difference
Part-dance performance, part-interactive theatre piece, part-dinner date, Communal Table is a Brisbane Festival commission set to nourish both body and mind.
The genre-busting work is created by acclaimed contemporary dance company Dancenorth and is one of several Brisbane Festival productions programmed in unusual and non-traditional venues.
Dinner, dance and dialogue is served at The Joinery, in inner-Brisbane’s West End, with guests first invited to wander silently through the ...
It Chapter Two Movie Review
After an almost three decade long hiatus, Pennywise (Bill Skarsgård) is back and the gang gathers once again to investigate. The years have not been good to all and the film takes its time to bring you up to speed with their adult lives. The theme of a lifelong friendship growing out of childhood pursuits is tested.
As is the premise that true horror is created in one’s own psyche and fears. This leads to some very inventive nightmares. It is presented as more creepy ...

The Farewell Movie Review
In the East, it even runs as deep as not telling a loved one the extent of their illness or showing grief at all. In Lulu Wang’s The Farewell, she uses her real life experiences to help develop the story for the big screen. She even uses her casting choices to challenge perceptions.
Playing against type, Awkwafina steps away from her comic roles to deliver a very serious interpretation of a woman not allowed to feel grief by her cultural restrictions. Although Chinese ...

Watch the trailer for The Farewell starring Awkwafina!
To assure her happiness, they gather under the joyful guise of an expedited wedding, uniting family members scattered among new homes abroad.

With The Farewell, writer/director Lulu Wang has created a ...
The Kitchen Movie Review
The establishment of the characters and story in the first act is fine, it’s the second act and final reel that are a bit wobbly. The end especially feels rushed. It’s as if the story would have been better served if presented as a high quality multiple episode television series.
Having women act in the roles traditionally inhabited by male characters challenges you to get past gender. These ladies can be as ruthless and scheming as any previous on-screen ...

Check out the final trailer for Joker!
The other he can never remove; it’s the guise he projects in a futile attempt to feel he’s a part of the world around him, and not the misunderstood man whom life is repeatedly beating down. Fatherless, Arthur has a fragile mother, arguably his best friend, who nicknamed him Happy, a moniker that’s fostered in Arthur a smile that hides the heartache beneath. But, when bullied by teens on the streets, taunted by suits on the subway, or simply teased by his fellow clowns at work, this ...
