fringe: night creature  »  yaniblog
I can honestly say that it's been a while since a Fringe show has moved me to tears like Night Creature did. And I don't even really know why.I will freely admit that based off what I'd originally read about the show (and going off the feel of the poster), I was expecting a completely different kind of show from Lion House Theatre.What I got was a show that was warm, funny, sweet, beautiful and completely surprising.It's essentially a one woman show, with Casey Jay Andrews capturing my attention right from the start, but she's helped out by ...

fringe: razi - mesmerise  »  yaniblog
If the word adorkable was ever going to apply to a Fringe performer, then Razi (Adelaide magician Ryan Osbourn) would be it.And that does work for his stage presence... even if he does seem nervous or flub a line or two, it's easy to forgive.I will say that some of his magic tricks I've seen other performers do better... I'm not sure if it was our closeness to the stage or Osbourne's nerves, but there were a few moments where the audience could see the inner workings.That's not to deny that he knows his stuff, and he can definitely ...

photo saturday: things  »  yaniblog
There's thoroughly too much shit going on right at the moment, and all of it is a little more difficult than it really needs to be.And none of it's helped by the fact that my brain is a little too frozen up due to the fact that there are far too many things I should be doing or thinking about and my brain just seizes up.Work was fairly quiet at the beginning of the week, but the rest of it was fairly busy. One of the additional things I had to do along the way was make all ...

fringe: blanc de blanc  »  yaniblog
Blanc de Blanc is, in equal parts, a chic 1920's Parisian hotel staffed by the insane and a debauched cabaret of flesh and champagne.Suffice to say, I loved it.It's not for the faint-hearted though. It's definitely a "grown-up cabaret", more so than any of the somewhat similar shows I've seen before. And I think for some it may be a little more than they bargained for, even with the R18+ rating.There's a lot of nudity, mostly female, but occasionally male... and the cast can and will molest the audience and every opportunity.The show itself is a two hour mixture ...

fringe: coral browne - this f***ing lady  »  yaniblog
Coral Browne is possibly the most famous Australian actor you've never heard of.She also sounds like an English duchess and swears like a drunken sailor. She spent her life playing vamps, vixens, femme fatales, strumpets, harlots and scarlet women. She was also married to Vincent Price when she was in her 60's.Probably the most well known movie she was in was the 1958 version of Auntie Mame starring Rosalind Russell where she played Vera.Our story picks up about a year before she died, while she's sorting out her possessions to donate to a museum back in Melbourne (the Performing ...

fringe: stories in the dark  »  yaniblog
In a dark, dark wood there was a dark, dark house. And in the dark, dark house there was a dark, dark room.And in that dark, dark room tonight there were three performers, a cellist and less than 20 audience members.Stories in the Dark is exactly that. Voices in the dark, telling stories, filling up the blackness with words and music.It starts simply enough, we're lead into a very small room, the walls lined with chairs and the three performers, reading and waiting for us, each in their own corner. In the fourth corner there's a cellist.I can't be ...
