The world premiere of Silence is coming to the Brisbane Festival!
Conversations not being heard and responses that are muted. A drum beats and bodies thrash through frequencies to uncover what lies in the Silence. There is Silence between stars as the emu travels across the night sky, or the dancer’s energy when they hit the cut between rhythms. It’s also the deafening silence under white noise. The same questions echoed through generations.
We’ve marched across Country. We’ve had promises made and broken. We’ve ...

Retro Movie Review – Dallas Buyers Club
Back in 1993 when McConaughey starred in Richard Linklater’s Dazed and Confused as the twenty something loser David Wooderson, few would have imagined an Oscar in his future but the almost complete transformation of both his appearance and acting skills in Dallas Buyers Club is nothing short of amazing. From rom-com lite to serious leading man.
His character in DBC, Ron Woodroof is a homophobic rodeo cowboy past his prime who contracts HIV from heterosexual ...

The demand Aronofsky places on the audience is a mirror of the demands he placed on his cast members and the ...
