If Steph Spiers is here from Theatre Network Australia, then it must be the first show for August, and we’ll be finding out about the Victorian Theatre Forum later this month before Steph introduces us to the TNA Member of the Month… it’s Arts Centre Melbourne and representing the arts centre’s current big project Alter State is Foundation Artist Carly Findlay, a former TNA member of the Month herself.
Then we welcome Juliette Hanson from Linden New Art back to the show to catch us up on two or three exhibitions that are currently on show including Kingdom of Pleasure, a dreamlike photographic look at Luna Park by local artist Jane Burton.
Meanwhile, at Theatre Works, there’s a bit of a different take on Euripides classic play Medea. It’s called Medea: Out of the Mouths of Babes and it looks at the story from the perspective of the doomed children and uses real children as a source for this new interpretation. Why do that? We’ll ask director Steven Mitchell Wright.
And finally, we’ll meet Australian film and television veteran Sandy George who’s written the latest New Platform Paper from Currency House which asks why Nobody Talks About Australianness on our Screens.
They’re all on tonight’s edition of Behind the Scenes with me Chris Thompson right here on Vision Australia Radio.
