Cold Light | The Street

Cold Light is an epic tale, across many years and many moods. So what relevance is such a setting to today? There are some obvious parallels: gender inequality, government control of free speech, the worship of youth.

Paradise Lost | Bare Witness Theatre Company

Theatre artist Christopher Samuel Carroll uses a lot of skill to fine tune every minute of where to stand, his facial expression, vocal tone, accent and volume.

Skilled performers shine within a creative plotline in the international production Circus 1903 – The Golden Age of Circus.

The Nutcracker | Queensland Ballet

Dashing and delightful is the experience at Queensland Ballet’s production of The Nutcracker. The sparkle and polish are enchanting for all ages and attention spans.
