Christmas with The Idea of North & WASO

It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas after The Idea of North and West Australian Symphony Orchestra teamed up to play a smorgasbord of festive music from around the world at the Perth Concert Hall on Friday night.

Saturday Sojourn | The Ali Bodycoat Quartet

An evening to forget the stress and endless planning of present buying and arbitrating between less-than-friendly relatives on the day.

Toruk | Cirque du Soleil

Based on the wildly successful 2009 film Avatar, TORUK transports us to the mythical Pandora, a land inhabited by the blue-hued Na’vi people.

Catherine Alcorn's Cathartic

Cathartic is Sydneysider Catherine Alcorn’s newest show, and that in itself is something of a miracle as she informs us that it is a mere 13 short weeks since she delivered her first child.

The Club Tour | Vince Jones

What a Peter Pan is Vince Jones. Despite his Santa-like, snowy beard he steadfastly refuses to grow up. Imagine a man in his sixties referring to his “girlfriend”.

Let the Right One In | Black Swan State Theatre Company

What if your life was so bleak that you found light where only others found darkness? What if the passage into adulthood and your first experience of love was driven not by joy and romance, but by a desperate need for acceptance and protection?

Once We Lived Here | Western Sky Theatre

How refreshing to see a new Australian musical and also to be able to acknowledge its success on so many levels. This is a really strong production and its presentation was terrific.

The audience gasped as Chiciquita and Fernando mounted the stage. He resplendent in white flares and a silvery sequined top, she in a “barely there” red hot sequinned number, both platinum bewigged.
