Arts Review

Review: Hypatia (Blue Room)

The physicality and urgency of the performance brought the story of one woman, and in a way the stories of all women, powerfully alive. Katie McAllister reviews.

Review: Matilda the Musical

Dahl wrote from the perspective of a child made powerless in a world run by adults. The musical adaption weaves together Tim Minchin’s rhythmic wit with the children’s classic to stunning effect. Gabby Loo reviews.

REVIEW: Ballet at the Quarry (WA Ballet)

The synchronised movements of the performers are particularly impressive in this piece above others as their poor timing would not have been easily concealed when thumping on a massive drum. Tyler Morgan reviews.

Review: The Beat Generation (WAAPA)

Teaming actors with a handful of WAAPA’s jazz musicians, The Beat Generation required an audience open to a new way of viewing theatre and experiencing the Beats in all their ugly glory. Samuel J. Cox reviews.

Review: Memory Bones (WAAPA)

The concept piece explores the notion that the physical structures of the theatre might somehow remember the artists, technicians, critics and audiences that it has borne witness to in 112 years of operation. Samuel J. Cox reviews.
