The governors of the country with the largest population, longest wall, largest dam, biggest Buddha, longest sea-crossing bridge, highest railway, largest airport terminal and soon to be tallest tower (the Shanghai World Financial Centre) have a tendency to take a single idea just a teeny bit too far.
Greg Foyster looks at the single mindedness of the People's Republic of China - and what is me
I don't know if it's because I am getting older, and perhaps somewhat grumpier, but of late I have been continuously disappointed by the amount of terrible websites there are to be found on the net. Just as nothing says "I don't care" faster than a set of tracksuit pants...
It was a hot afternoon and the ice cubes leapt in the tray as Sarah twisted it. Like tiny little creatures, she thought, slippery flying fish, all resisting being the first in her cup. She could hear the sounds of Daniel reading in the next room – soft mumblings and joyous exhalations as he found phrases that explained the world in a way that collided with his own experience. She was not quite so
For the first time in my life it was completely impossible for me to be inconspicuous. For the first time in my life, the freak that I always secretly knew I was had been made visible to everyone who walked past me on the street. I felt like a freak
exposed, and it completely freaked me out.
There, listed as one of the nominees for the AWGIE award for best play was my work, Beyond The Neck. I had to read it a few times to make sure I wasn’t kidding myself. Fantasising. Daydreaming.
Walking down Swanston Street late on Easter Monday I noticed that the city is changing. High-rises spring up where once there were hospitals. Rock'n'roll pubs are bought and developed into glossy, fashionable enterprises. Money is not made, it accumulates...
The contemporary galleries in Paris seem to be doing a replay of abstract expressionism (the current show at the Centre Pompidou uses this part of the collection) and perhaps a little contemporary Chinese realism is creeping in given the Olympic timetable that is upon the world.
One of the things I have found incredibly hard in working on my side project – Miss Blimey – whilst also working full-time on the amazing Desktop magazine, trying to have some kind of social life and playing Roller Derby (look it up – it's lots of fun) is following up on the 'actions' I have taken not only in promoting my 'brand' but also in the creation and marketing of products for my 'brand'.
As a playwright it is surprising how little time you get to spend in the main creative spaces involved in theatre. If you spend more than a couple of days in the rehearsal room you can be in danger of stopping a director and actors from doing what they do best, making your play better than you could have ever seen it in your head.
Ramyana Reeves' short story was first published in Voiceworks Magazine #73, Carnivale, available now.
By Stella Rose McDonald. This poem first appeared in Voiceworks #73: Carnivale.
I am ghost with mop. Sometimes, old Croatian chook pinch mop and I am just ghost. I walk here and there looking for mop but no one give me. I go to basement to pick up new mop. I call her Ljiljana and turn her upside down in elevator. The mop looks like beautiful Slavic girl, but she no look back.
Bryce Wolfgang Joiner (22) won the 2006 John Marsden Award. He believes each human heart has t
Imagine this. You want to be an airline pilot. You’ve never flown a plane before, but you’ve sat out the back in cattle class. Your parents taught you English, so you can at least string a sentence together and read the flight checklists. You’ve flown in Microsoft Flight Simulator X a hundred times. So you go up to the CEO of Qantas and say, "Hey dude, how about you give me a job flying one of tho
I recently had a client who submitted three-quarters of her manuscript for editing. She didn’t send me the ending, because she only wanted the start of the work edited. That may sound reasonable to some, but I just had to laugh.
I helped a friend move house recently. It's amazing how much stuff a person can accumulate. One of the reasons that there were so many boxes and plastic bags was my friend's massive collection of CD's. Most of the CD's were comprised of show-tunes and cast recordings, but amid all the jokes about needing to upgrade to digital, I couldn't help but wonder, how many of that arsenal of musicals on CD
In the last half of last year I wrote some articles for Arts Hub on my experiences in England at The Royal Court. I loved it. There is something very clarifying about being given an opportunity to put your thoughts on paper and share them with other people.
By now it’s no secret. I take an interest in public conveniences. I like them. I visit them often and they provide me with thought provoking situations. For each cubicle I enter, I am forced to consider the design, the décor, and the general atmosphere as I sit in an often-rare private moment. And on some occasions I am privileged enough greeted, in this private space, with personal messages, l
Melbourne's Malthouse Theatre once again lives up to its well deserved reputation of staging innovative works of interest to the glbtq community with its current production of Brindabella.
The Federal Election campaign focused it's propaganda/policies on, "Working Families". This inherently rules out singletons and struggling artists, and more potently, it rules out the unemployed, the homeless and the unstable.
