he Silkroad Ensemble bridges borders with their music from more than 20 countries, resulting in a collaborative celebration. Iranian singer Tara Tiba takes us from the mystic sounds of Iran’s ancient Radif tradition to the passionate rhythm of Cuban music. And the pure, arid sound of the Central Australian Aboriginal Women’s Choir makes its home in towering German cathedrals. These musicians’ stories present a compelling case that each of us has a connection to each other, regardless of our culture, lived experience and national identity. Legendary cellist Yo Yo Ma founded the Silkroad Ensemble in 1998. Company manager Eduardo A Braniff says that it was used as a way to create “a new artistic idiom, a musical language founded in difference, a metaphor for the benefits of a more connected world.” The ancient trade routes of the Silk Road network connected the east and west and likewise, the Silkroad Ensemble connects countries and fosters “productive cultural collaboration, for the exchange of ideas and tradition alongside commerce and innovation.” Coming together through music was the obvious choice. “Music is the foundation of our model of radical cultural collaboration, a model in which each of our artists is deeply rooted in his or her own traditions,

and deeply committed to innovating new musical idioms,” says Braniff. “In this manner, the Silkroad Ensemble celebrates tradition and furthers innovation.” Their music functions as an antidote to prejudice, racism and fear in societies that are increasingly exposed to the pressures of terrorism, protectionism and the challenge of multiculturalism. “We believe that there is more that unites us than separates us,” says Braniff. “We are committed to finding a way through challenges knowing that the work and our collective is better for having done so.” The aim of their music is simple – it is to draw people together and it uses the power and passion in each one of its members’ stories, many of whom have experienced oppression in their homelands, to do so. “We hope to convey to audiences the joy we feel in presenting our myriad cultures, experiences and instruments,” says Braniff. “We hope to inspire in them curiosity about the music, but also about someone who is different from them.” Compositions by the Silkroad Ensemble deliberately transcend time and place, but at once evoke musical memory in all of us. It is passionate music and open for interpretation, and it draws on so many centuries of historical influence. When asked why music makes us feel connected to one another, Tiba proffers a simple answer. “Music makes us feel connected, because it makes us


feel,” she says. Tiba was born in 1984, shortly after the 1979 Iranian revolution. Under the new Islamic theocratic-republic, most western music was outlawed, and women were banned from singing in public. When speaking about her childhood, Tiba acknowledges she was born into a line of strong women. “When I look at my mother’s journey, this has made such a difference for me and the opportunities I have had… I often think life is like a set of dominoes – the decisions we make in another place or time can have such far-reaching influence on us all.”

of her homeland has landed her, unexpectedly, in a band with Cuban pianist, Ivan Melon Lewis, to whom she attributes much of her recent success. This Iranian-Cuban collaboration is a forerunner for a wholly new, harmonic sound – until now, Iranian music has remained entirely monophonic. Tiba, who feels a unique connection with her Cuban band members, says “Cubans themselves, more than any other Latin American country, have much in common with Iran… It is felt in the culture, the way we talk, the way we cook, the way we feel… You would never think an Islamic revolutionist country and a post-Communist country would have much in common… But we do,” Tiba laughs. “Perhaps we both know what it feels like to be oppressed and then to find freedom again through our music.” In 2006, music director Morris Stuart began For years, Tiba trained under a prominent Irani- recruiting members for a choir in Alice Springs. an vocal teacher in the classical music tradition of “While I was doing that,” says Stuart, “a young Radif. Radif music is composed for ancient Persian Aboriginal woman bailed me up in the street and poetry and houses a very specific vocal technique said, ‘Oh, you’re teaching all those white fellas all known as tahrir – a unique, melismatic version of those African songs, you should come and teach us the warbling ornamentation so characteristic of as well’.” Thus began a journey which would have Middle Eastern music. “Because we have been so the Central Australian Aboriginal Women’s Choir isolated in Iran, [Radif] is still very much intact in its touring Australia and eventually, Germany.

by early German missionaries, which attests to the kindliness and unique respect with which Aboriginal people were treated by such mission groups. “The conjunction of Aboriginal languages and their tonality with German theology, sacred poetry and music from the early Romantic and Baroque periods or even earlier… is nothing short of remarkable and totally idiosyncratic,” says Stuart. The sound produced by the Central Australian Aboriginal Women’s Choir is at once familiar and totally unfamiliar, raw, joyful and deeply moving in its three-part harmonic depth. The choir is comprised of several groups from remote communities in central Australia. In 2017, the Central Australian Aboriginal Women’s Choir toured Germany, singing their traditional songs in Lutheran cathedrals, some of which would have housed the people who taught these hymns to their communities generations ago. They received standing ovations wherever they went. “It forged a connection,” says Stuart. “Traditionally, both

German and Aboriginal people translated their wisdom or knowledge through song… It was like a boomerang… The ladies were saying ‘you’ve brought something to us and we are bringing it back to you. “They’re building a bridge with non-Aboriginal Australians as well,’ says Stuart. “They are saying, ‘we can connect, we can conquer this divide,’ and it makes non-Aboriginal Australians think ‘maybe it’s not hopeless, maybe we can connect somehow’.” Put simply, each of us aches for belonging, but too often belonging is needlessly fractured by power, politics and otherness. This year, Tara Tiba, the Central Australian Aboriginal Women’s Choir and the Silkroad Ensemble remind us that we all belong to the same humanity, and that this connection cannot be stifled. / Emma Heidenreich and Laura Desmond VENUE: TIME: TICKETS:

Halls of Empowerment

I

n 1894 the South Australian government passed a bill which granted women the right to vote and stand for parliament. The Noel Lothian Hall, in the Botanic Gardens, is marking the 125th anniversary of the bill by hosting a series of shows which focus on the theme of women’s emancipation and empowerment. That Daring Australian Girl is based on the true story of Muriel Matters, a South Australian who became a leading agitator in the UK’s suffragette movement. Writer-performer Joanne Hartstone plays Matters, who chained herself to the British House of Commons, in a show that has collected an impressive number of five-star reviews for its commanding performance. Dietrich: Natural Duty, another piece of biographical theatre, is performed in drag by Peter Groom about Marlene Dietrich – the German Hollywood icon who threw herself behind the allied war effort and raised funds to help Jews escape Nazi Germany. Groom has received a lot of positive attention for the authenticity of his performance, especially Dietrich’s accent and mannerisms, in a cabaret event that is sure to be brimming with glam and sequins. A retelling of the beloved adventure Gulliver’s Travels, which famously satirised 18th Century English society, brings new life to the story with a female protagonist and a cast of Lilliputian puppets. Developed specifically for the Noel Lothian Hall, this performance promises a reimagining that will delight audiences with its fresh insights on the scathing critique and for the ingenuity of its Gilliam-like production. The Noel Lothian Hall is also offering a number of shows that don’t quite fit the suffragette theme. A cast of recent WAAPA graduates perform Cookies and Cream, which asks exactly how you’re meant

to go about reconciling the misinformation and bad advice you receive in high-school sex-ed with your sexual experiences as an adult. jden redden’s The Expert at the Card Table has shown at past festivals, but with its transition to the Noel Lothian Hall it features better projection equipment which could be a game changer for the show. Dealing with the most pragmatic of magical disciplines, it offers an intimate demonstration of all the necessary sleight of hand required to cheat at cards. This is the best chance you’ll get to see someone deal from the bottom of the deck, or load their hand with aces, without actually losing your trousers in the process. / Justin Boden SHOW: TIME:

Musical Notes

Josh Belperio on his loving tribute to his nonna

T

he Fringe is a place where artists can experiment and further explore their passion for various disciplines. And Adelaide in particular has always welcomed new and adventurous ideas. Fitting in with the best of the Fringe’s traditions is Josh Belperio’s 30,000 Notes. His new show is an innovative tribute to his beloved nonna, their shared note-taking habits and his classical music training. Known for his theatre work Scarred for Life, produced with partner Matthew Briggs, Belperio now puts his talents as a composer to use. With aims to make classical music accessible to a wider audience, Belperio intends to overlay the music with his nonna’s old videos. The show is a unique celebration of their relationship and her lasting influence on Belperio’s life. “We’re doing all this music to try to contextualise it,” he says. While much of his work tends towards a blend

of comedy and drama, 30,000 Notes is a more serious work encompassing grief, falling in love and coming out. Naturally such a show must also be technically sophisticated, and this one incorporates both classical music and a virtual choir. “The music was recorded in a special way which was basically binaural audio,” he says. “Instead of it being stereo, which most music is, it was recorded in this way where it actually sounds like you are in the room.” The resulting product is an immersive mixture of a play and a concert which envelopes the audience. “We used four microphones and created digital ears which colour the sound and then gives you the sense that the music is all around you.” / Kayla Gaskell VENUE: TIME: TICKETS:

Bridge of Clay Marcus Zusak will feature in Writers’ Week with his new much anticipated release, Bridge of Clay

B

ridge of Clay is the long-awaited new release by Sydney author Markus Zusak. 13 years in the making, the novel follows the story of five brothers, their tumultuous relationship and their absent father.

Features

“[I] had written four books that meant something, but the fifth book meant everything”

14

Best known for 2005’s The Book Thief, the success of that title has naturally put pressure on the author. “It played more of a part than I thought,” he says. Although, in other ways, it has been a blessing to Zusak. Previously, he says he “had written four books that meant something, but the fifth book meant everything.” In other words, Zusak does not believe in half-measures, which explains the many discarded copies that have gone into writing Bridge of Clay. “When I was a kid I lost a race that I was sure I’d won. After the race I complained to my dad who said

he was sure I’d won too. But then he told me I just didn’t win by enough, you’ve got to win by enough that no-one can dispute it. Writing is kind of like that.” On writing Bridge of Clay he adds was like a “world championship of myself,” and one which entirely immerses him. One of the things Zusak loves about writing fiction is even though you know it’s not real, “you believe it when you’re in it.” Asked if he had anything to say to any readers who might find his new book challenging he says, “I don’t make any apologies for anything in the book. Everything is exactly as I wanted it to be. It’s okay if you don’t read it. But if you hang in, you’ll be richly rewarded.” Bridge of Clay is written as if it were a combination of memories, exactly as it was intended. As Zusak says “books are one of the final frontiers – they ask patience of people.” / Kayla Gaskell

Arriving in Adelaide with his third solo show Homeboy, nominated for Amused Moose’s Best Show at the Edinburgh Fringe, Withnail has grown in confidence and become more reflective as a comedian. “It’s a response to #MeToo, #TimesUp, Donald Trump and anything else that made me question my role in all of this.

Glasgow particularly has a proud storytelling heritage – in general my Englishness has only ever held me back on paper – the second my cockney accent comes out there’s an understanding of ‘Oh... he’s not posh!’ Compared to UK audiences, Withnail has found an unusual problem to solve in Australia: a complete lack of weather-beaten misery from the crowd. “It feels unnatural doing comedy in such a nice climate – audiences being warm, tanned and athletic seems disposition and his more outward looking material, strange to me.

everend Billy is asking the questions, but he’s also the one who poses them with his furious, inspired call to action. Earthalujah is a work of ‘radical instability’ that he performs alongside the radically anti-consumerist Stop Shopping Choir. Sitting somewhere between activism, performance art and a flamboyant cult, he insists that “It’s all of these things at once, and when we’re really doing our best work you can’t tell.” Taking the form of an old school Methodist preacher allows Billy to tackle weighty issues in a carnival-esque manner, raising his voice and invoking a greater power as he peppers his sermons with exclamations of “Amen” and “Earthalujah!” But there’s no fire and brimstone here; his concern is this world, not the next. The sixth mass extinction might be upon us, yet many politicians are more concerned with securing their borders against immigrants than tackling the climate change that will wipe out the human race. These are issues that transcend national boundaries, and Billy is not coming to lecture Australians – he wants to recruit us. Helping him in his goal is Savitri D, the director and co-founder of The Stop Shopping Choir. Fitting the more traditional image of an activist, it’s her job to occasionally rein him in and give direction to his passion. When Billy sounds the clarion, announcing

that “We are about to, as one, resist extinction by making a signal across space to each other, whether it’s the form of a hug or a language or a song,” it’s Savitri whose groan is the sonic equivalent of an eyeroll? “C’mon, a hug?” She exhorts him to do better, and he conjures up the image of a congregation embodying the natural world, turning into a living superstorm and rising up to the 57th floor of one of New York City’s glass skyscrapers. By now Billy is directly addressing JP Morgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon, whose investments in tar sands and Arctic oil exploration have led the preacher to label him “the top financier of climate change in the world.” “Hello Jamie,” he says, his voice getting slightly hoarse as it rises in volume, “it’s the Church of Stop Shopping, we’re here to save your soul.” Next, he says, “the choir comes up with their uncanny harmonies, everybody starts getting goosebumps and we start realising what’s possible.” It’s a fantastic vision, but Billy is just beginning. “Give me a pulpit,” he booms, “I’m preaching now.” Amen. / Alexis Buxton-Collins VENUE: TIME: TICKETS:

Non-Binary Solo Christine and the Queens confronts gender and rules at WOMADelaide

F

rench singer-songwriter Héloïse Letissier aka Christine and the Queens, or now simply Chris, produces their own style of ‘freakpop’ in a force against gender binaries and gender expectations. “One of the first songs I wrote, built over musical loops on my computer, was a curious rhapsody on the will to be saved by my own fluids, all odorous: sweat, blood, saps, everything they carefully try to scrape off young girls’ skins,” writes Christine.

“I’m done with assenting. I’m done with pleasing the eye,” they write. Changing the world became their motivation. “If it felt impossible to play by the rules, I’ll infect them all; my disease would became chaos, and this chaos would became highly contagious.” Christine breaks these rules. Their open attitude and honesty starts a conversation. What is gender and why do we try to define it? “My eroticism is precisely what sets me free of those skimpy limits, this gender I’m assigned to,” they write. “I desired them all, but never with the same sex.” The oppressive gaze on women rarely falters as it continues to influence so many aspects of living. “Our clothes are shaped to refrain our bodies from expanding, our pills are swallowed in the name of what must be regulated, our hygienes are yelled as necessary,” Christine writes. “As for our desires, This creation of gentle females, to fit inside a they’re suffocated the very moment they arise – reparticular shape and become what some might argue member the insults thrown at the face of those who are ‘perfect’ girls, arguably begins at youth.

#MeToo

R

age, Rape and Revolution is the first of the two Zeitgeist Series panel talks at Adelaide Writers’ Week, to be chaired by Sisonke Msimang. The panellists are writers whose collective written oeuvre targets violence against women. They are Sohaila Abdulali, Soraya Chemaly, Lucia Osborne-Crowley and Dr Clare Wright. They will be asked to discuss how the #MeToo movement has brought sexual gendered violence to the forefront of our cultural conversation. #MeToo is a feminist movement which was officially created in 2006 by activist Tarana Burke. Burke developed it as a way of reaching out to sexual assault survivors, particularly survivors of colour and survivors from low socio-economic backgrounds. These women could connect with each other via tweets, through using the hashtag #MeToo. The aim of the movement as it was then, was to provide these survivors with an easily-accessible support network, information toolkits, advice and assistance. The movement has mutated somewhat since 2006. In 2017, after The New York Times and The New Yorker published reports alleging that prominent film producer Harvey Weinstein had sexually harassed and assaulted multiple women, actor Alyssa Milano wrote a tweet saying: “If you have been sexually harassed or assaulted, write ‘me too’ as a reply to this tweet.” The tweet went viral, and in its

wake there was an outpouring of sexual abuse and assault allegations in the media against a number of different influential men. You could certainly make the argument that, despite all the media furore, not much has changed. How, for example, is the movement faring in achieving its initial goals of educating and supporting people of colour and people from lower socio-economic backgrounds, now that a lot of the most vocal spokespeople for the movement are wealthy and white? Have many of the accused men actually faced consequences for their actions? These are just some of the kinds of questions the panellists might be asked. It will be particularly interesting to hear Soraya Chemaly’s insights on the effectiveness of the movement, given her activism work. She is the director of the Women’s Media Center Speech Project, an organisation which campaigns for women’s rights through a number of different channels, including social media. Rage, Rape and Revolution will be rewarding for anyone who is interested in the phenomenon of #MeToo and the movement’s potential to revolutionise societal attitudes towards sexual violence against women. / Emma O’Connell-Doherty VENUE: TIME: TICKETS:

Domestic Bliss Susie McCabe on good housekeeping and toxic feminism

ine years ago, Susie McCabe told the teacher of a standup comedy course, “I don’t think I’ve ever spoken into a microphone.” Nine years later she’s a Scottish Comedy Award winner, has sold out at both the Glasgow Comedy Festival and Edinburgh Fringe, and is a regular headliner and MC at Glasgow’s comedy clubs. After touring Domestic Disaster all over Scotland she brings it to Adelaide. McCabe’s excitement to be here for the first time is effervescent. “My promoter had been asking me for a few years to come out, but circumstances wouldn’t allow it,” she says. “Then last year I took a sabbatical off work, dipped my toe in the water with Perth [Fringe], and had a great time.” She adds that “being on the other side of the world” is helping her develop her craft. “I had to change certain points of reference – it’s how you do that and how you learn to do that. And your diction has to be better because I have a broad Glaswegian accent.” It was being out of her comfort zone that spurred Domestic Disaster into being. After a marriage breakdown, McCabe found herself moving back in with her parents before meeting her new partner, Nicola. “The

difference between when you’re dating in that beautiful rainbows, hearts and bubble of dating and then you move in with them – it all changes. The things that you don’t notice when you’re dating and they don’t notice about you. There were a few disasters along the way.” While McCabe is willing to poke fun at herself, her show has a deeper meaning. “Both my mum and Nicola came to me and said ‘you’re terrible at this [housekeeping] for a woman’ and I said ‘that’s massively sexist’.” McCabe dives into toxic feminism and the internalised misogyny that sees women criticising other women rather than being kind and supporting each other. She promises audiences can expect “an hour of laughs, storytelling and fun. But they will walk away thinking, ‘I’ve done that, and I’ve watched that.’ … It’s not a monologue, it’s an hour of funny stories that you can relate to.” / Kylie Maslen SHOW: TIME: TICKETS:

t’s our second year in Adelaide and we were thrilled to have our annual launch party in The Attic at RCC Fringe. A sultry space tucked away at the top of a University of Adelaide building, it was the perfect late-night spot for our showcase event. Blessed by the glittery vinyl stylings of The Dollar Bin Darlings DJing before the acts, we’re then greeted by the “wet and dishevelled” Jack Tucker, our inappropriate and frankly terrible standup MC (Zach Zucker may be responsible for this). He guided us through the night’s musical and circus fayre. First up, Laurie Black and her trusty keyboard smashed out a punkish opening set, followed by goofball duo The Two Little Dickheads shining bright like diamonds.  Next we were treated with Cirque Alfonse doing

an eye-popping beer keg routine from Barbu, before Leah Shelton – fresh from Bernie Dieter’s Little Death Club but also a visceral solo performer in her own right – appeared dressed as a living sex doll for a confronting bit from Bitch On Heat. To close, Alex Rossi & Friends presented a taste of their own After Party show with a storming Minneapolis blues & funk set. Finally, inheriting the DJ mantle was Irish jockeying duo Lords of Strut, filling the room with ample bangers. And all lubricated by local brewers and social change champions Sparkke, the night’s drinks sponsor. Now it’s time for us to make our final print issue – watch the streets and box offices on 12 March for Fest Review Issue #3.

into hour-long wads of unrehearsed comic brilliance by a crack team of podcast-recording writers. Chunks of iconic lines and scenes remain intact, but within the pulp there are reinterpretations, misinterpretations and flashes of absurdity. And with a changing cast of comedians and actors sourced from the festival who haven’t read the script before marching onstage, it’s excellent when they nail it and even better when they don’t. This Fringe they’re tackling films like Harry Potter, Jurassic Park and Back to the Future. Tonight it’s 1999 sci-fi classic The Matrix, supported by John Robles, Clare Cavanagh, Ele Stankiewicz and The Bear Pack’s Carlo Ritchie. An inevitable

lampooning of the movie’s “cool” cyberpunk aesthetic, mind-bending narrative and po-faced philosophy ensues, deftly steered by narrator Ronan Carey’s dry Irish brogue. This is not a staged performance – the title is accurate, they’re just reading out a script, but this only helps amplify just how bloody funny the writing is. Wry, arch asides (“I still don’t know why he’s set his alarm to be late for work”) and hilarious caricaturing (Neo, a hacker, struggles with the concept of artificial intelligence) elevate the show to premium parody, while the unprepared comics’ earnest commitment to their roles makes Dreamgun a wholesome late-night riot. /︎ George Sully

to put to rest many misunderstandings of the condition by sharing stories from her own life. From key advice to others with mental illness (don’t make jokes with your doctors – they’ll just make you see more doctors), to highlighting the negative impact of Freud’s theories, to how to make-believe you’re God, Kay is charming throughout.  A young local comic, Kay is clearly more used to doing club spots rather than a full-length show. But

all comedians have to take the leap sometime and Kay opens herself up to her audience with a sincere vulnerability and grace. Obsessive. Compulsive. Disordered. is a raw unpolished gem.

Starr has recently been diagnosed with epilepsy – or ‘epilezby’ – which has given her mates fuel for dry jokes and her mum reason to panic. Based on all the drugs and alcohol she’s gutted to miss out on post-diagnosis and with the jokes she makes about her students, she may also be potentially the most irresponsible teacher in Australia.  The show is at its best when Starr is able to string together a narrative, but too often Big Lez stops and starts as Starr loses her place.

An outdated mass-content producing sellout: Shakespeare wrote to get paid, and so used his work to fuel the intentions and the values of those doing the paying. Including writing female characters as possessions of men to be treated as they saw fit. Gillian English is an angry woman, and has every right to be. Shakespeare is so revered in

ugly parts which make GoT so compelling (aka Ned’s beheading, Tommen’s end, The Red Wedding, etc.). And much like in the series, The Red Wedding scene is uncomfortable to watch – but in tonight’s version it is at least accompanied by a fun, if slightly disturbing, rap. The performance isn’t just a summation of the series. It also discusses fandom culture and how

shows such as Game of Thrones can help you through your own problems, not by presenting an idealised world but one where, like in reality, the characters struggle to reach their goals with a message that you are not alone. Ultimately enthralling, the show has many twists and turns and, naturally, leaves you wondering how will it all end. / Kayla Gaskell

society but, as English argues, this mindless reverence is prohibiting new stories from being told and preventing traditionally oppressed voices from speaking up. No one is safe from her fervid rampage – Disney, Weinstein, the man who physically blocked her on the footpath because he wanted to touch her breasts. English is passionate and commanding as she runs through her 10 reasons why The Taming of the Shrew should be put to bed. What element of this story is relevant to our culture and society? How does such an archaic tale move discourse forward toward equality? The relatability of English’s stories is what is so endearing, she draws the women

of the room in with her personality, and she rocks and startles the men with her brutal honesty. Growing up, English was taught by her father how to physically defend herself, working from the feet up to the throat. In her twenties, she was taught by another woman how to grab and rip a man’s dick off. She was promised it would ‘pop right outta there’. In a world where women still need to walk home with keys between their fingers, English makes a strong argument to leave this story in the past. Some of English’s points can feel a little disconnected from Shakespeare and her original argument at times, but her gusto and persona are captivating. / Laura Desmond

Domestic Disaster sees McCabe laugh at the everyday through her own experiences, such as her inability to separate laundry and breaking the iron by not filling it

with ‘ironing water’. But as McCabe builds the audience’s trust, she brings us to her central narrative: that the expectations we have of men and women need to change. She argues we need to stop focussing our anger on straight men and learn to deal with toxic femininity and internalised misogyny. While there are certainly relatable

aspects to the message, tonight it fails to stir the passion in the audience McCabe is aiming for. McCabe is an engaging standup who shows genuine care and connection.

Matt Vesely And George The Robot Perform a Very Normal Stand Up Routine HHH VENUE: TIME:

Comics have tried all sorts of things to innovate standup over the years: music, props, running on a treadmill, performing only in Mandarin, etc. And it’s tricky to make it an intrinsic part of the show rather than just a gimmick. Here, George the Robot is both the comedian and the innovation: he’s a sentient machine that operates in a convenience store with

killer standup from Ange Lavoipierre, high energy sketches from Double Denim and Garry Starr, and even room to fit in acrobatics and circus from Basketball Man and Cirque Alfonse – with the truly absurd styling from Belinda Anderson-Hunt and Cal Harris.

Through tight and polished performances it is clear that every act tonight is bringing their A-Game. The night is testament to the quality Stamptown bring to the Fringe and makes Thursday nights feel like the weekend. /︎ Connor Jervis-Hay

dreams of being on stage. At least, that’s the premise. This is of course the product of an entirely human brain, Adelaide-based comedian and George’s ‘support act’ Matt Vesely. The Robot is – for want of a better expression – a device used to explore the relationship between comedy and the human condition, with Vesely soon roped in to coach the struggling machine in standup. Vesely was also one of the writers on ABC’s hit series Fucking Adelaide, a TV show not without its own flashes of surreal humour. It’s his eye for the surreal in the everyday that keeps us engaged with the ‘duo’ for much of the hour, despite it just being a man talking

to a blinking HAL-9000-a-like with a synthesised recorded voice. But the script does meander and, if this is in an effort to simulate spontaneity, tests our patience. Vesely ably milks the straight man-comic dynamic thanks to George’s unavoidably literal and robotic perspective, but if there’s a solid spine behind the gags it often doesn’t show. It’s ultimately a bold exploration of mental health, but Vesely’s skill with funny repartee ensures the show isn’t a total downer. He also doesn’t trivialise the issue. With a tighter structure, A Very Normal Stand Up Comedy Routine could achieve the quality its concept deserves. / George Sully

Her ability to weave one-liners effortlessly through narrative segments has the audience in stitches from beginning to end, and Ward’s assuredness in her body and the material sees her pushing her physical comedy abilities to new heights. In the last few years Ward has focussed much of her material around mental health issues, and her emotional maturity from this work shines through. Busting a Nut is standup at its best: effortlessly delivered and sneakily thought-provoking, leaving the audience crying with laughter. / Kylie Maslen

Two Little Dickheads HHHH TIME: TICKETS:

The National Wine Centre times vary, 24 Feb – 2 Mar $15 – $25

Two Little Dickheads is a colourful goofball fest by comedians Sharnema Nougar and David Tieck. Directed by the amazing clowning powerhouse Tessa Waters of the Fringe Wives Club, this sweeping dramatic tale about the final day before earth is destroyed by a diamond encrusted meteorite is cringey, ridiculous and gratingly fun. Apart from the meteorite, these sparkly dickheads are committed to making zero impact – it’s bio-glitter! Somehow this show just works even though it has no budget and only the most fleeting glimpses of sincerity. These little dickheads are smug and exasperating but they are also determined that everyone will have a happy ending. If the world were ending, it would

Dietrich – Natural Duty HHHHH VENUE: TIME:

TICKETS:

$22 – $30

Marlene Dietrich, Berlin born, became a Hollywood star when she was cast as ‘naughty Lola’ in The Blue Angel (1930). Renouncing her German citizenship when the Nazis took power, she enthusiastically threw herself behind the American war effort. When asked what motivated her to risk her life performing to soldiers on the front line, she said that she did so ‘out of decency’. It is this sense of decency which permeates Natural Duty. Show creator Peter Groom plays Dietrich in drag, in which he offers a measured portrayal of the jaded, enigmatic performer, frequently breaking into German to bring authenticity to the role. Dressed in a glimmering, floor-length gown, and impeccably made-up, he brings ferocious dignity to her commen-

River is a goose. Well, she’s a person, but then she’s also a goose. She’s not sure why, and her parents won’t accept it, but then you can’t really help the way you are, can you? Her best friend, Charlie,

tary and brilliant clarity to her songs, each of which is devastingly well chosen. This is both a showcase for Dietrich’s music and a bittersweet exploration of her life.What Groom and collaborator Oliver Gully have accomplished is to lift the veil of the past and perhaps allow us to experience Dietrich – her forceful

opinions, her smouldering looks, her distinctive voice – as she would have been by her contemporaries. Every single choice is in service to the narrative about fame and celebrity on the one hand, mourning and loss on the other. As a result Natural Duty is enchanting, immensely enjoyable and profoundly touching.  / Justin Boden

But things go awry when Charlie’s cousin, Chelsea, fidgets with the controls, and hijinks ensue. Goose! is, in many ways, an impressive production. River, Charlie and Chelsea are realised with confident performances, the story has some novel turns and the commitment to such a weird conceit is refreshing. Writer Stephanie Francis elected

not to make explicit what it means to be a goose, which was a wise choice. Is the show about being gay? Is it about being trans? Or just a bit unconventional? Any interpretation throws up difficult implications – not least of which is why River’s parents and friends are so uncomfortable with her assertion. Part coming-of-age story, part coming-out story, Goose! makes for fun theatre. If its message is a little confusing it is still one of acceptance. / Justin Boden


Area 53 HHHH VENUE: TIME:

Pickup Point run ended

Scepticism isn’t any fun. Area 53 takes us on an unauthorised tour of the secret facility that has been keeping aliens under wraps in Adelaide’s industrial inner-west. Area 53 achieves in under an hour what the X-Files couldn’t do in 11

seasons: make us believe that aliens are real. This immersive theatre production joins all the dots – government cover-ups, missing townsfolk, child labour and tin foil hats. Our tour guide Eric is an endearing weirdo whose off-the-wall conspiracy theories manage to charm the audience, even if his personal hygiene doesn’t. This oddball group of young scientists are inventive and abrasive as they show off their bizarre findings. The crew from D’Faces of Youth Arts in Whyalla

clearly love putting so much attention to detail into their sprawling set of ‘evidence’. Between the momentum of the show and the surly cleaning staff, the audience is quite literally swept along through Area 53. This show is zany fun that proves child scientists are just as likely to be dissecting aliens as anyone else. And what would be the point of believing in aliens if you don’t get to run screaming as they break out of a government research facility? / Jess Martin

30,000 Notes is an intense, intimate, and compelling experience. Josh Belperio’s new show invites you into the gallery, and his life, with walls covered with the notes and music he’s made since his early childhood. A classical composer and compulsive note-taker, these papers range from drawings of mermaids and shopping lists to the real-life monsters in his head. Belperio takes the audience through some of his most important notes. He tells us about the relationship he had with this nonna, his struggle with his sexuality, the first boy he fell in love with (who didn’t love him back), and the man who helped bring this show, and others, to life. Interspersed with these stories, Belperio shares with the audience four of his compositions, showing us how beauty and pain can

As the notes wash over it is to be adrift in a sea of Belperio’s memories: his nonna’s home videos projected onto the wall before you. Undoubtedly talented as a

composer and writer, 30,000 Notes is brave. Belperio bares himself discussing not just the confusion of a period with no notes, but also his fear, repressed sexuality, and depth of emotion associated with his coming out narrative. Poetic, powerful, and highly visual, Belperio’s show is an invitation into his world. / Kayla Gaskell

Trigger warning for sexual assault survivors Britt Plummer sparks hope in the face of our monstrous society. Her one-woman show, Chameleon, tackles the ever-relevant issue of sexual assault with both sincerity and humour.

Plummer details personal accounts of sexual assault and critiques generalised ideations of femininity in a captivating sequence of vignettes. A staged caricature of femininity with deliberately overdrawn eyebrows and lips, Plummer is a serious purveyor of social change intent on achieving her goal with perfected physical comedy. There’s an outrageous personification of ‘female hysteria’ and an improvisational band practice with fun audience participation. While her personal accounts of assault are confronting to hear, she has created a safe space by prefacing that anyone can leave anytime

during the performance. Plummer delivers a forthright monologue that neatly packages feminist history and gender inequality 101 making her show wonderfully accessible. She doesn’t seek to hold intellectual superiority over her audience, so no matter what stage of their feminist journey someone is on, they feel included in the conversation.  Chameleon is imbued with silliness and play that never detracts from the gravity of her topic. Instead Plummer promotes an important reminder that women like her are surviving – and so can you. / Letti K-Ewing

Lip-synching as a range of characters, Shelton is mesmerising as she challenges the social pressures felt by women. Her seamless drifting in and out of characters including men and women of a variety of ages is impressive, and the accompanying physicality shifts are tight and succinct. For a show with no real dialogue, Shelton’s message comes across loud and clear. She is a spectacle to watch as she becomes ‘perfect’ women, voices of oppressors and obedient bitches. Sexuality is called into question by her costuming which generally looks uncomfortable and restrictive. Not

Eleanor’s Story: American Girl In Hitler’s Germany HHHH VENUE: TIME: TICKETS:

Live From Tandanya 12pm, 2 Mar $32

A pale, poised Ingrid Garner takes to the stage in a buttoned blue dress. Two wooden chairs and a trunk complete the onstage set. Garner’s come to tell a story – the story of her grandmother, Eleanor,

who spent seven years as an American youth living in Nazi Germany during WWII. While others prepare to flee Hitler’s dictatorship, Eleanor and her family are just arriving in Germany, fresh faced off the boat with their American accents and trunks of clothes. In a compelling and nuanced performance, Garner’s mesmerising transitions into different characters bloom across the stage, instantly bringing her grandmother’s life hauntingly into focus. As bombs descend on Berlin, she’s faced with the atrocities and chal-

lenges that go hand in hand with surviving in a war-torn city. The incorporation of multimedia, particularly the archival footage of Berlin pre- and post-war projected on the back wall, adds depth to the realness of this gripping family saga. The end of the play may be slightly drawn out, but it’s generous with the time it leaves for reflection on something from so long ago which Ingrid brings so unbelievably close. It’s also worth noting that this is in fact a story with a sequel: look out for Home Is The Stranger also being performed at Live From Tandanya this Fringe. / Edwina Sleigh

Even so, Crisp does well when she shakes off this delivery style and instead uses wry one-liners to convey her fondness for departed family members and the

messiness of adult life. It would be good to see her expand on these portions of the show a little more. / Emma O’Connell-Doherty

The Forgettory HHH Bakehouse Theatre run ended

Tracey Crisp bookmarks her show with four themes: insomnia, birth, death and dementia. Each theme has a corresponding symbolic prop which Crisp unpacks from a cardboard box. In the insomnia section she downs glasses of wine in Abu Dhabi to cope with her grief-induced sleeplessness. She sits in an armchair with an unopened bottle of riesling and a glass on the table next to her. This staging feels a little static; Crisp doesn’t directly interact with the wine on the table which adds to the disconnection. Crisp is also a funeral celebrant, and the delivery style she uses for much of the show is reminiscent of the flat public speaking which comes with the role. Here it does her written words a disservice though, because it detracts from the candid emotional vulnerability of what is being said.

Adelaide Techno Convention HHHH VENUE: TIME:

various venues run ended

Tucked away in what feels like a quiet corner of the Fringe, the Adelaide Techno Convention has curated three days and nights of performances showcasing the best of local electronic music. This, the first night, plays host to an ambient introspective of trance music and screen at RCC’s Union Cinema.

Adelaide has always had a strong roster of globally recognised DJs and this really shows in the two extraordinary performances by Pallasites and Anthony Coppens. For the first session two large gongs are suspended and play centre stage, enhancing the ethereal rhythms generated by a performer behind a wall of electronic equipment. Supporting both acts is a big screen montage of stock film, graphic art and classic movies compiled by visual artist Tangent 23. Impossible to fault, Pallasites’ performance is mesmerising. Only when the visuals employ a few well known classic sci-fi clips

is the dream state ever threatened with a sense of the familiar. There is a strong sense of calm surrounding audience members as they file out between the two meditative sets and conversations are gentle and considered. Leaving the ambient calm behind, the Adelaide Techno Convention will now bring the levels and beats back up and take the party to venues across the city including Cry Baby, Lotus Lounge and RCC’s Attic. Based on the quality on show tonight, the event should grow and receive the attention it deserves. / Joe Hay

2016 was a tough year for celebrity deaths. Top of that list, for many, was the Thin White Duke himself, David Bowie. A Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Bowie was a falling star whose brightness seared permanently on the public consciousness. The creative community has been in mourning since, and it’s perhaps inevitable that this grieving process is now manifesting in live

solo. Dancers Hilton Denis and Rechelle Mansour are great at what they do, even if the role of a tap dance in the story is unclear. At times LIFE – the show does lack consistency, especially as it

performance. Just this Fringe there are four Bowie-inspired shows. One of the more unique offerings is Gluttony’s own circus-cum-music extravaganza REBEL. It’s important to note that despite the show’s primary category being Circus, the focus here is very much on the music. It’s essentially a live Bowie tribute band accompanied by acrobatics, and taken on that basis they have nailed the brief. The band is tight, our glam and cocksure host Stewart Reeve’s vocal is a convincing impression, and the circus routines are a polished, day-glo party. And, mostly, the marriage to circus not only works but is sometimes beautifully poignant. There’s a cosmic silks stunt to

‘Space Oddity’, and a frankly jaw-dropping Chinese pole number to ‘Lazarus’, where the pole isn’t fixed to the floor (making it behave more like a trapeze). But several songs have no accompaniment, while one (‘Cat People’) puts one cast member simply buzz-sawing a metal groin-plate to make sparks. Throw in some deep dives into more niche Bowie content to disrupt the pacing, and REBEL starts alienating the more casual fans in the audience. This may be a visual feast – the costumes are on point for the glam rock pioneer – and a decent Bowie covers gig, but the energy stutters too much for a show with such incendiary source material. / George Sully

Tom Gorham plays a very convincing drunk after a little bit too much celebrating, and becomes the butt of all juggling jokes, which held up the pace of the acts a number of times.

A few songs into the pop renditions by the night’s compere and a child a few rows behind says, “I hope he doesn’t come back.” Harsh but not unfair. it would take a professional to distract from this tone. Luckily, there are professionals a-plenty. There is no doubt that the women of Le Aerial hold this show together. A duo ascends in an aerial apparatus metres above the stage, one taking the full weight of

the other by linking only their feet. Another aerialist wraps herself up in chains before tumbling back towards the ground in what looks to be both a painful and dangerous achievement. The performances are fearfully breathtaking. They range from pure grace to pure shock-value. It’s just as maniacal as circus is meant to be and it’s every bit as entertaining. However, it slips into the kind of staginess that distracts from what should a celebration of raw human strength. / Letti K-Ewing

Tokyo Electrock Stairs HHH TIME:

Space Theatre run ended

It’s understood that dance takes over where language cannot, but Tokyo Electrock Stairs break this convention in their Adelaide debut performance Twilight Suddenly. It’s an interpretive theatre dance piece unbound by the usual conventions of dance by incorporating acting and spoken word, which immediately calls to mind the work of Pina Bausch – if a little more upbeat. Set mostly to an uptempo electro soundtrack, the four dancers perform a contained fusion of contemporary and hip-hop, and while the overall performance is deliberately

subdued, their skill undoubtedly shines through. Dance numbers are episodically cut by an actor who delivers a dramatic, lovelorn monologue about loss and memory. It’s bizarre and at times incongruous, periodically losing the audience. Although the actor’s conviction in his delivery is commendable. The clear standout is the penultimate solo hip-hop performance by choreographer KENTARO!!,

who dances so languidly he gives a skilful illusion of effortlessness. It’s this expertise that draws eyes to him even with the four other dancers on stage. Tokyo Electrock Stairs have created a restrained, interpretive dance piece that’s absurdist for the sake of being absurd. It mostly resists fixity, and it’s admirable for that. / Letti K-Ewing

TRUTHMACHINE HH VENUE: TIME: TICKETS:

RCC Fringe times vary, 19 Feb – 3 Mar $10 – $15

For as long as humans have existed they have thirsted for truth, and there’s an undeniable appeal to a machine that offers the ability to look into another’s soul. That appeal is why more than two and a half million lie detector tests were conducted in the US last year alone. Unfortunately, those tests

have been largely discredited by the scientific community. Billed as a ‘dubious scientific experiment’, TRUTHMACHINE explains the science and pseudoscience behind polygraph tests and how they can be subverted. It also subjects one random audience member to a lie detector test while others watch. Biometric sensors are strapped to the chosen participant, who is given a series of innocuous calibration questions before the real interrogation starts. The test, it turns out, is how easily embarrassed they

are. They are subjected to a series of intimate questions about their past (some unnecessarily crass in an attempt to induce embarrassment) and at times it’s enough to make even the onlookers squirm. When every question is answered truthfully, even the potentially embarrassing ones, it feels as if the questioners are disappointed at the lack of shame and the show wraps up soon after. At just 20 minutes, the level of investment is low but it feels unneccesarily exploitative and the reward is commensurate. / Alexis Buxton-Collins

Hence the toilet paper stamped invitations telling people to come to her exhibition held in a functioning toilet. Unfortunately, these are questions made difficult to answer. For over thirty years, Belperio has taken photographs of toilets. For her exhibition, she’s selected a few and printed them on the end of toilet rolls and hung them in the bathroom. The image quality is poor and it’s hard to give a crap

about something you can’t really see. It’s a shame the actual photos don’t appear framed on the toilet walls as well. The photographs themselves seem quite generic but there’s something vulnerable and inspiring about Belperio's plight to become an artist later in life. Belperio clearly does give a crap about her photography so perhaps it doesn’t really matter whether or not anybody else does. / Edwina Sleigh

Where would art be without the dunny? Afterall, it was Marcel Duchamp’s Fountain – a readymade urinal he selected from a plumbing store in 1917 and submitted to an exhibition in New York – that was voted the most influential artwork of the 20th century. Picasso came in second, and Andy Warhol third. So there’s no reason why photographer Susan Belperio should not return to the toilet to ask some questions of her own. Perhaps not as philosophical or ideologically disruptive as Duchamp’s, but genuine and intimate within the context of her own life. After retiring as an anaesthetist at 60 years old, Belperio wants to know if anyone gives a crap about her artwork. Or if anyone really gives a crap about photography.

Dear Future Jack Jack Tucker wasn’t always a bad standup, his nine year old self writes in...

Features

I

78

t’s me, you, Jack Tucker at a young age. I don’t know if you remember writing this but I can’t fall asleep and I don’t know what else to do. There’s so much about the world and our future that I want to know and I figured the best thing to do was write a letter to you. I know only nerds write out their feelings but my body is changing, my mind is racing and I just found out I’m a virgin. I’m nine years old right now and I’m super horny and buff and confused. I can’t imagine what it’s like being any stronger, yet here I am, getting bigger and beefier every day. I’m horny and buff and dumb as a rock but I know it gets better when I get older. I wanna be famous so badly. That’s all I want. I would die to be famous. Because if I was famous then for sure Jessica would like me. I look at her every day in class and my body becomes warm and my pants hurt really bad. I didn’t make the basketball team because coach says I’m a liability so I started taking acting class downtown. I think I have what it takes to make it. I’m gonna be a star, Jack. You’ll see. Don’t ruin this one for me – I really need this. If I become super rich and famous then for sure Jessica will let me touch her butt and I can meet my hero: Daryl Strawberry. A lot of people said his career would never be the same after doing all those drugs but who’s laughing now. I

really wanna touch Jessica’s butt. I’m so sweaty all the time. Does that stop? I hope that stops. Do you have any friends? I don’t have any friends. Do you still like hot dogs? Mom won’t let me have any but they sound really fun. Was 9/11 real? Felt like a dream.

“I'm gonna be a star, Jack. You'll see” I’m having a hard time making friends but mom says that’s because I’m too mature for my own age. But I don’t believe her. Women, amiright? Haha. I hope you laughed at that as much as I did. Anyways, you should invest in Apple stock. I’ve got a really good feeling about this. I can’t wait to be you and be famous, and funny and strong. I’m gonna make you proud, just you wait and see! Love of love (no homo), Little Jackie Tucks. / Jack Tucker VENUE: TIME: TICKETS:
