PIAF

Words with Tom Vincent

An image hardly unfitting for a bunch of lofty, rancid youths; but still in comic contrast to the shirted, contemplative man sipping his coffee before me. Ryan Suckling interviews Tom Vincent.

Words with Mei Fong ( 方凤美 )

I think all writers have a weakness for the picturesque. That's good in capturing your reader and putting them in vivid landscapes. But it must be tempered, certainly in the case of non-fiction books, with a search for the truth, which isn't always pretty or grotesque or extreme. Laurent Shervington interviews Mei Fong.

Words with Garth Nix

A novel is usually published as YA not necessarily because of its themes or subject matter, or even the age of its protagonists, but because editorial, sales and marketing people think it will sell best if it is labelled as YA. Prema Arasu spoke to Garth Nix ahead of his appearance at the Perth Writers Festival.

Words with Marwa al-Sabouni

Whatever I feel it is definitely not excitement; it is a huge responsibility for every citizen and inhabitant of this place to even witness what it might be turned into. Pema Monaghan spoke to author Marwa al-Sabouni

Words with L-Fresh the Lion

Cat Pagani spoke with Australian Hip Hop artist and social activist L-Fresh the Lion ahead of his performance at the Perth International Arts Festival

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: Pindorama

"The show is one of the strangest dance pieces I have ever seen, but one I haven’t stopped talking about since. It’s intriguing, uncomfortable and certainly different from traditional notions of dance." Melissa Scott reviews PIAF performance Pindorama, directed and choreographed by Brazilian dancer Lia Rodrigues.

Review: Our Little Sister (Umimachi Diary)

"Directed by perhaps the leading exponent of the boutique family drama, Hirokazu Kore-eda’s work reappropriates Akimi Yoshida’s manga series to present a fresh take on the complexities of sisterhood." Brayden Keizer reviews.

Review: Rams

Make no mistake, 'Rams' is no blockbuster, and if you are looking for an action packed movie you’d better look elsewhere. This is, instead, a quiet film, with little dialogue, that celebrates little gestures. Patrick Bendall reviews.
