Many people love a drink in fact they will indulge at least once a week in a session of binge drinking or occasionally in some Class A’s, their habit is recreational and generally the individual gets on with their life relatively unhindered with some help from a Berocca and a Nurofen. But for others the use of alcohol and drugs can turn into a life threatening addiction that is uncontrollable and terrifying. For woman the impacts of drug and alcohol abuse are made even more difficult because very little research has been done on the subject.... Read More | Share it now!
I’ve never had a hero like Tamblyn Lord. Well, unless Ash Ketchum, the protagonist of the 1990s animated children’s television show Pokémon, counts. Lord’s latest theatrical exploration, ‘Call of The Ice’, chronicles the voyage he painstakingly took in January 2016 to recreate the journey of his childhood (and lifelong) hero Sir Douglas Mawson....

Buildings dressed in blood red lighting; hipsters running around a rocky, pitch-black industrial playground ducking in and out of old warehouses with a hot toddy in hand; inverted polly waffles cooked over campfires and handed out to shamelessly salivating foodies; a single helicopter performing impressive choreography over Hobart’s spectacular waterfront while being blasted by an atmospheric and densely layered siren song; a legendary German band creating thick soundscapes with home-made instruments in one of the country’s coolest live music venues. This was – is – a tiny slice of Dark Mofo, now one of the most in-demand art festivals in the country – certainly the most unique – and I tried desperately to soak it up all during the two nights down in Hobart this year....

Australian theatre is so male and white. Main stage subscriber theatre is irrelevant. Theatre is a boutique heritage industry. I have been having these conversations for years and to varying degrees these statements are true.

A program such as La Boîtes HWY‘s showings, panels, conversations and workshops, is a vital part of this growth.... Read More | Share it now!
