It's the pointy end of the year so we kick off this week’s show with Yuhui Ng Rodriguez and our penultimate Theatre Network Australia spot for 2022 which, of course, also means our penultimate TNA Member of the Month and this time it’s a return visit from HotHouse Theatre Artistic Director Karla Conway.
Then let’s scoot up the Western Highway to Ballarat to meet Louise Tegart, Director of the Art Gallery of Ballarat who also happens to have curated their latest exhibition, Beating About the Bush which asks to rethink some classic Australian impressionist works by juxtaposing them with works by contemporary Australian female identifying photographers.
Then we drop into Arts House, where 36 year old Aaron Orzech and 14 year old Sol Feldman have spent the past five years developing NeverNeverNeverNeverNeverNeverNever, a performance that’s part dance and part theatre and might have come about after an offhand comment in the theatre foyer.
Meanwhile, a stone’s throw away at the Meat Market, we’ll be fighting off the Demogorgon in the upside down when we meet Salty Theatre’s Ashley Taylor Tickell who’s directing the Australian premiere of, no it’s not Stranger Things, it’s Stranger Sings! The Musical Parody.
And finally, we haven’t heard from them for a while, but they’re on the road again and so it’s a good time to catch up with Sam Lohs and Rosie Burgess better known as The Tuck Shop Ladies.
They’re all on this week’s edition of Behind the Scenes with Chris Thompson right here on Vision Australia Radio.
