Bernstein on Stage | Adelaide Symphony Orchestra

Sometimes going to the theatre is far, far more than “a nice night’s entertainment” – it’s a visceral experience – and such was Bernstein on Stage, a truly lovely event.

Freeze | Nick Steur

It was a dramatic start to Freeze. The 70 or so audience members were asked by Dutch visual/performance artist, Nick Steur, in the ABC Grainger Studio’s attractive foyer to be silent throughout, told that we could stand, walk about or, as most did, sit on the floor – and watch.

John Hinton's Scientrilogy: The Element in the Room | Tangram Theatre

This is the third of the trilogy and concerns the Polish woman Marie Curie who with her husband discovered radium and polonium and after his death, so much more.
