Outpouring of emotion through art

BY Kathryn Coller | 02-Mar-2020
Outpouring of emotion through art

When does art begin? Is it a significant event or series of events that changes the course of one's life journey? For Stephen Mills, creativity really began for him in 2006 after a major life jolt from a motor vehicle accident [MVA]. A fractured vertebrae from the impact was the direct result to his body, but an artist was born at this pivotal time. Unplanned occurrences can have unexpected results, and for Stephen, the ebb and flow of life has been artistically documented. Stephen's upcoming exhibition is titled OUTPOURING.

Clare Bartholomew & Daniel Tobias: The Anniversary

Clare Bartholomew & Daniel Tobias: The Anniversary

You’re invited to Jim and Barb’s golden wedding anniversary! After 50 years of marriage these Baby Boomers from Balwyn annoy one another so much… they literally want to kill each other. Meanwhile, Greta Thunberg is on the TV telling them that the world is on fire and it’s all their fault. This dissent into the disappointing abyss of toenail cuttings, stray hairs, sleep apnoea and unfulfilled dreams is layered with precision timing, nonsensical absurdity and deadpan delivery. Multi-award-winning creators of Die Roten Punkte, Clare Bartholomew and Daniel Tobias are back with a brand-new murderously funny physical farce.

Particulate Matter: A Fossil Fuelled Future?

BY The Cross Art Projects | 29-Feb-2020

At the end of 2019, much of Australia’s east coast (NSW and Victoria) and the Flinders Ranges and Kangaroo Island (SA) went up in flames. The Black Summer collapsed the tyranny of distance: the far from here became intimate as smoke crawled into every set of lungs, near or far, as “particulate-matter”, particles that are small enough to enter and damage human lung tissue. For months, Australians breathed air pollution up to 26 times above levels considered hazardous to human health. Climate emergency is now a thing that envelopes and entraps us all.

Actor Begins Rehearsal for Fringe Debut Whilst Locked in Prison Cell

Actor and Activist Janie Gibson began rehearsals for her Adelaide Fringe debut Voices Of Joan, whilst locked in a prison cell in Collinsville Queensland. Janie staged a theatrical blockade last Friday to protest the Adani Carmichael coal mine. Dressed as a mermaid, Gibson chained herself to a cattle grid to stop work on the mine and send a message to Adani and the Australian government that this mine is a carbon bomb that will accelerate catastrophic climate change. Her placard read: “Mythical Creatures: Mermaids & Honest Coal Barons”. Be it a case of life imitating art or art imitating life, Janie’s new theatre work Voices Of Joan calls on the courage of rebel icon Joan of Arc to aid us in these dark times.
