How do Australia's native owners dream climate change? How do this country's custodians explain a destructive phenomenon brought about by the disastrous decisions of those who have worked hardest to displace them? How do the communities with the deepest knowledge of the land we live on see and understand its continued resilience and adaptation to what crimes are inflicted every second of every day? In a performance so compelling it made me question why I was wasting time watching it instead of writing more-than-firm letters to local government, Cut the Sky is undeniably unmissable.BWW Review: THE MAGIC FLUTE Returns To Charm And Delight at Sydney Opera House, Joan Sutherland Theatre January 14, 2016
Although any promise of Saint Nicholas, superb circus and carnival fun should be an easy sell to all families looking for a high-volume way to get their Christmas cheer happening this festive season, the promise of new Star Wars and end-of-year school reports can cause many a parent trepidation in the face of a large-scale Christmas event.BWW Review: COMPANY at fortyfivedownstairs September 21, 2015
A well-advised investment in real talent to professionally execute a boutique production is what made Watch This' Company an enjoyable experience. George Furth's book allows so much room for interpretation around Sondheim's tunes, that it would be all too easy to steep the content in self-indulgent intelligentsia or leave it dry and deadpan, but Kat Henry's direction makes marvellous entertainment to draw out fresh humour and intrigue from a story we've all heard before and is probably too close to home to begin with.
