PLAYWAVE CREATIVE FAN ART: HOUSE ON FIRE

PLAYWAVE CREATIVE REVIEW: RIOT

PLAYWAVE CREATIVE REVIEW: RIOT

"I’ve always liked the idea of the theatre. The smell of the grease, the roar of the paint. I’ve often thought if I hadn’t ended up in computers, I would've gone into the theatre.” As Moss from the IT crowd tells us, live performances are certainly an entertaining attraction. So, needless to say, I was very excited on seeing Irish variety show RIOT, albeit in a Spiegeltent. With the promise of live music; exciting camp retro visuals; and a lil' sprinkle of the obscene, it seemed like the perfect live performance for me... 

PLAYWAVE CREATIVE REVIEW: FAG/STAG

PLAYWAVE CREATIVE REVIEW: FAG/STAG
FAG/STAG vaguely explores an idea that probably isn’t true, but has been imposed on me my whole life through sitcoms: You don’t want to be single in your late twenties...

PLAYWAVE CREATIVE REVIEW: THREE SISTERS

PLAYWAVE CREATIVE REVIEW: THREE SISTERS

It’s not about Three Sisters, it’s about one person and that’s you.

Before I say anything I need to really heavily disclaim one thing: I had never heard of Three Sisters by Anton Chekhov before seeing this STC rendition of it. Oops. So although it’s a classic I have absolutely no knowledge of the form it originally took - I know, that’s super classy of me. A bit embarrassing, but it’s not my fault they don’t teach us about international art in school!

PLAYWAVE CREATIVE REVIEW: VIRGINS & COWBOYS

PLAYWAVE CREATIVE REVIEW: VIRGINS & COWBOYS
Virgins & Cowboys is a teasing and taunting play that engages you over an intimate stage. Writer Morgan Rose brings us this raunchy depiction of eager adulthood, following the Flight Festival of New Writing in Melbourne. The play is driven by protagonist Sam’s chance to take two womens virginity, played by actor Kieran Law.

7 TOP #SYDFEST PICKS by NICOLE PINGON

7 TOP #SYDFEST PICKS by NICOLE PINGON
Sydney Festival is coming around again, and this year Festival Director Wesley Enoch is determined to focus on diversity, pushing the boundaries of what the festival is in artform, culture, story and experience. For me, that’s what makes this year’s Festival lineup so exciting...

PLAYWAVE CREATIVE INTERVIEW: AARON GLENANE

PLAYWAVE CREATIVE INTERVIEW: AARON GLENANE
We were lucky enough to interview Aaron Glenane; who plays an emo 33-year-old, still living at home. And frankly, we all know one of those… With Glenane, we got into the nitty gritty of the play, his experience of playing such a unique character on an even more unique show.

PLAYWAVE CREATIVE REVIEW: SILENT NIGHT

PLAYWAVE CREATIVE REVIEW: SILENT NIGHT
Yes, Silent Night is all about our favourite holiday, Christmas, but it’s so much more than that. It’s a satirical slap in the face of our own bizarre behaviours within the festive season, and reveals the harsh realities of our digitalised 21st Century world on our own morality. It’s confronting. It’s intense. But perhaps most importantly, it plays with every preconceived notion of what theatre can be.

PLAYWAVE CREATIVE INTERVIEW: MARK ROGERS and SANJA SIMIC (aka. Bodysnatchers)

PLAYWAVE CREATIVE INTERVIEW: MARK ROGERS and SANJA SIMIC (aka. Bodysnatchers)
Last week we were lucky enough have a chat with the creators of Plastic before seeing the show; writer, Mark Rogers and director, Sanja Simic. Mark and Sanja gave us a taste of the show, insight into their experiences as Australian creators, and tips for young creatives.

PLAYWAVE CREATIVE REVIEW: PLASTIC

PLAYWAVE CREATIVE REVIEW: PLASTIC
Most simply put, Plastic is clever, witty, and exciting. Created by the incredible Sanja Simic and Mark Rogers from Bodysnatchers, audiences are taken on a journey through this fascinating world that affects the whole of humanity, yet ironically we never really hear about.
