An Octoroon is a production of contrasts. Bright white stage and pitch-dark blackouts. Raucous comedy and stark reality. Black face and white face. Loud rap music and uncomfortable silence. The rights afforded to characters of white skin, and the treatment of all others.

Dead Puppet Society has teamed up with Laser Beak Man artist Tim Sharp to create a glorious piece of visual theatre that delights all audience members, regardless of age. 

This performance is entertaining and delightful from the first instance of walking through the door, long before the music starts. From the food and rendezvous setting to the music and melodrama Orpheus is far from a tragic evening.

Per Te | Compagnia Finzi Pasca

Wind, much like life, can be unpredictable, uncontrollable and powerfully beautiful. Per Te has captured this perfectly with their use of wind as it's main prop.

Opera Double Bill | Queensland Conservatorium

It was an ingenious idea of the director, Stephen Barlow, and the conductor, Nicholas Cleobury, to combine in one program these two pieces, one by Debussy and the other by his contemporary Ravel.

Curuenavuli’s Queen Bey-like command of the stage has hearts racing from the start. But she is equally compelling when switching to her softer, more vulnerable side.

Ruddigore | Opera Queensland

A tongue-in-cheek gothic fantasy and a laughter spinning, giggle-fest and chuckle coaxer if ever there was one.

Woolf’s Works | Royal Ballet

Choreographer Wayne McGregor’s vision to create a ballet inspired by Virginia Woolf’s three novels Mrs Dalloway, Orlando and The Waves was daring enough.
