Review: Double Delicious – The Concourse (NSW)

What could be better than dinner and a show? Not much, I would argue, but eating dinner while you’re being told stories about what you’re eating is something extra special. Produced by Contemporary Asian Australian Performance, Double Delicious brings storytellers, music, and visual projections together and presents them in a five-course meal for the brain, heart and stomach.

Review: Coil – UnWrapped at the Sydney Opera House (NSW)

“Streaming killed the video store”, and re:group performance collective are determined to pay homage to the communal space of adventure, possibility, camaraderie that was the aisles of Leading Edge or Blockbuster or the many others lost to time across Australia. Coil is an innovative and semi-autobiographical piece of “live cinema”, in which Steve Wilson-Alexander and Carly Young play themselves, and Solomon Thomas follows them with a camera to capture tiny snippets of footage that they edit together onstage and then later play together as parts of a larger film.
