It’s worthwhile taking Brisbane Festival Artistic Director David Berthold’s advice on how to attack this year’s just announced stellar line up of art and entertainment, “It’s a feast not a snack, don’t just taste one little tit-bit dive in and sample the whole range, use both hands and take risks!”...

Even though it is billed as a cabaret, Vigil is something that is far from that label. This one-person show – commissioned by the Adelaide Cabaret Festival – is filled with songs and interludes that weave through its story.

Seated at a table at the end of a catwalk thrust out into the Magic Mirrors Spiegeltent, two girls in their mid to late-20’s take up seats around the same table, wide-eyed and chattering excitedly. A well-dressed bearded man dances his way over to the table holding a silver bucket, singing to the disco music playing over the PA. He asks them if they would like to buy a raffle ticket, to which the girls happily produce gold coins in exchange for the tickets.... Read More | Share it now!
