From Parliament House to cocaine, dodge balls to dance sequences; Nakkiah Lui’s new political comedy, How to Rule the World, presents us with a melting pot of skit-like comedy, direct address, and musical elements, to create a colourful picture of Australia’s political climate today.
Political, satirical, and packed with big ideas, the show presents itself as a degustation menu, giving us a delicious taste of intersectionality, race, media sensationalism and the radical steps people are willing to take to have their opinions voiced.
Sleep, Perchance to Dream is a whirlwind through the trapped mind of sweet Ophelia and her crumbled world. Central coast artist Alexandra Travers brings us this striking performance of rhythm and insanity. She throws us a twist to Shakespeare’s Ophelia, through her unique monologue and ideals that craft this new modern-day portrayal.
It is a wild and unchained performance that seems to grow in both meaning and necessity and still provides answers for our most troubled questions as our society continues to cycle around Shakespeare’s traditional morals.
