World premiere of 'Thursday' by Bryony Lavery at Adelaide Festival

BY Stephanie Lyall | 01-Feb-2013
Taking reference from the remarkable story of Adelaide woman Gill Hicks, who lost her legs in the 2005 London bombings, Thursday explores the fundamental question of what it means to be human. Beautiful and fragmented, this collaboration between Brink Productions (Adelaide) and English Touring Theatre (London) is poetic and ambitious in form and content. It layers dreams with reality, compassion with devastation, and identity with loss to build a deeply woven picture of humanity. At the click of a finger, the lives of strangers are both knitted together and blown apart. Flawed and self-absorbed existences float in and around an Australian woman at the centre, who finds herself confronted by an horrific reality. Through this moment, Thursday unravels time to reveal the strands of unconditional love that bind us all, as strangers, together.

New Single For Brighter Later - 'COME AND GO'

BY Show off Services | 30-Jan-2013
Late in 2012, after a long gestation, emerging Melbourne band Brighter Later released their stunning debut single, ‘The Woods’. A track of ‘slow-burn[ing] majesty’ (Mess+Noise), ‘The Woods’ drew rapt praise in the group’s native Australia and beyond, with Indie Shuffle calling it music Beach House ‘would be proud of’, and Dadada writing that ‘The Woods floats along in the ether, enrapturing innocent listeners along the way.’ ‘Come and Go’, the second single from Brighter Later’s much anticipated, self- produced debut album, The Wolves, due for release in March, picks up where ‘The Woods’ left off. Brimming with elegant melody, it’s a spellbinding four minutes of intimate, half-lit listening that, like all of Brighter Later’s music, is all the more immediate for its patience and restraint.

Estate- new paintings by Lauren Wilhelm

BY margaret river gallery | 29-Jan-2013
Margaret River Gallery Exhibition Estate 2 –21 March 2013. New works by Lauren Wilhelm. Lauren Wilhelm is a Western Australian artist who has exhibited nationally, in New York and whose recent solo shows have been sold-out. Inspired by history and man’s seeming inability to learn from it, Lauren’s paintings offer a quirky look at hubris whilst still managing to evoke a stillness and sweet melancholia. Her latest work is inspired by the idea of land ownership and territory. Dismayed by urban sprawl and large tracts of bushland she remembered as a child being carved up into souless expanses of identical rooftops, Lauren explores our preoccupation with owning a slice of earth

Pete Ford's Wynter Dark Graphic Novel App

BY Pete Ford | 22-Jan-2013
The WYNTER DARK GRAPHIC NOVEL APP is a whole new comic reading platform. We're planning on creating a new way to experience comic books and graphic novels without detracting from what makes them great in the first place. This isn't a motion comic or a standard comic book reader, this is a whole new way to dig into the books that will be published that allows readers to get involved and contribute in a dynamic way. This campaign is to raise the funds for us to code the platform - we have the first series ready to roll out well on the way (WYNTER DARK) but the idea will be that this becomes a platform for other books and creators to publish their work via the tablet medium. Once we have the platform ready roll we'll be soliciting from other creators to start a next generation comicbook e-publishing company.
