Review: You will never look at your kitchen sink in the same way again after STOMP at Sydney’s Capitol Theatre

Using everyday items such as brooms and buckets, the eight performers who make up STOMP create their own soundtrack, a hybrid of noise that form a melody which will see you tapping your feet in no time. Incredibly theatrical, no words are spoken for the duration of the performance yet the cast are able to convey emotion and humour through actions, expression and of course, sound....

Review: Alison’s House is as relevant today as when it was written – perhaps more so (Sydney’s Depot Theatre to 21 April)

Flying candy, endorsement of cheating and a few life lessons – and that’s just in the first 10 minutes – The Miss Behave Gameshow is hands down the most entertaining night out I’ve had in a long time. In fact, stop reading, jump over to the Sydney Opera House website and grab yourself some tickets now because once word gets out about this show, you’ll be hard pressed to get tickets, and frankly I don’t want to be held responsible for that kind of disappointment....

Review: Where’s the love? Cupid’s arrow just misses the mark at the Australian Museum

When I heard that the Australian Museum was hosting a special anti-Valentine’s Day event as part of their Culture Up Late series, I was more than just intrigued – I was excited. I’ve never been someone who buys into the whole commercialisation of Valentine’s Day, having always felt it was an expensive, over the top Americanised tradition. The idea of an evening with other like-minded souls, wandering the halls of the Australian Museum, drink in hand, while I partook in some “speed hating” sounded perfect.... Read More | Share it now!

Review: Tammy & Kite beautifully articulates the resilience of childhood and the enduring power of friendship

How much do children perceive of the world around them? How do children cope with sadness? Hannah Cox and Caitlin West tackle these tricky questions in Tammy & Kite, a play about two sisters whose love for each other appears to be stronger than anything the world can throw at them. The performance opens with Kite, describing how her sister Tammy was her best friend, but that she died when she was 14, and when she was only 9. We then see Kite transform into her younger self, playing with her toys and drawing in her colouring book.... Read More | Share it now!
