Don't be THAT person....15-2-16

Every show has one... THAT person. They're very talented and likable but they do stuff that irritates the cast to no end. And I don't think it has anything to do with the person in it's-self. Once, I worked with a designer who pissed me off to no end during a production but I ended up being quite good friends with them after the show. The situation of a show always makes one person THAT person. The one who's at the heart of every conflict or always receiving "Come to Jesus" emails. Here's some things to avoid in order to not be THAT person.

These are 5 art forms that are currently performed in Asia but are predicted to be extinct within the next hundred years due to lack of interest from young people, lack of audience and several other factors.

Review- Piff the Magic Dragon- Udderbelly11-2-16

Sometimes you see a performer who is very talented but they're having a bad night. This was the case when I saw Piff the Magic Dragon at the Udderbelly. A bad show can be caused by various factors: technical glitches, performing in a new space, a weird audience vibe or Murphy's Law.

Review- CLOSE UP- Udderbelly20-1-16

This one-hour “circus” show is entitled CLOSE UP. It was then followed with the copy "See. Hear. Feel. Everything." and there was also something about it being a "glorious, chaotic abstraction" and "most intimate show" in the Udderbelly Festival programme. Who wouldn't be intrigued by that?
