In Between No One | The Pajama Men
I started out smiling, laughed out loud a bit more than usual, then became quietly transfixed by the brilliance taking place in front of me... a big dumb smile never quite leaving my face.

Homeward Bound | Kate McLennan

Homeward Bound is an autobiographical account of Kate McLennan's retreat back to the family home in Geelong after a relationship break up. Her stories of heartbreak and insecurities are easy to relate to, as are the members of her family. 

Apocatypical | Kambara Productions

In Apocatypical the world as we know it is spontaneously destroyed during the middle of a turgid performance of an Elizabethan drama, leaving only one lousy actor and two highly disgruntled audience members alive.

Ladyboner | Lisa-Skye

Ladyboner sounds like an irreverent show mostly about sex. Which it is, but it is also a deeply personal show about the conflict of growing up.

Shakespeare Fight Club | WATSON

The show is a riot of inspired silliness, perfectly suited for its late night timeslot. If it sounds like you need to have a degree in Renaissance Theatre Studies to get the jokes, you don't.

Celebrity Theatresports

The range of talent displayed in every wildly different scene was impressive; we saw opera, Star Wars The Musical, different accents every 30 seconds, and the creation of the Horror-Western genre.

Kurios | Cirque du Soleil

Given what an immense and perpetual global franchise Cirque du Soleil has become, it must be quite a challenge to keep coming up with new themes while still attempting to conform to a vague unifying style that maintains the brand.

Anthem | Melbourne International Arts Festival

There’s a great deal happening in Anthem, a cross section of humanity meets and the differing opinions and cultures make for great people watching.

Diaspora | Chamber Made and Robin Fox

Diaspora offers the audience a vision of a distant imagined future and wow, what a vision it is!

High Performance Packing Tape | Branch Nebula

The banal is made dangerous in this one man DIY circus.

Rite of Spring | Yang Liping Contemporary Dance

It’s a complicated, fussy work, visually powerful and conceptually cumbersome. While it does not fully hold together, Rite of Spring’s design and spectacle make for a unique experience if viewers are happy to just let it all wash over them and not worry about connecting all the dots.
