Au théâtre de l’Odéon, l’expérience interstellaire des «Paravents» de Jean Genet

Dans la salle même où fut créé en 1966 «Les Paravents» parmi des désordres alors voulus par l’extrême droite, Arthur Nauzyciel rend justice à l’œuvre. Sa mise en scène magnifie le ouvert aux ambivalences de Genet, plutôt que de pister le politique.

The puppetry, costuming and set design of the stage play are on another level.

The Cannes Film Festival finished last Saturday. As well as new movies, glamorous red carpets and — this year — overzealous security guards, it's become known for ludicrously long standing ovations. And these aren't always indicators of a good movie — Francis Ford Coppola's "Megalopolis" had the audience on their feet for seven minutes but currently has a Rotten Tomatoes score of 50%. Here's a story from the Independent about the festival's longest ever ovations. Most trips to the local cinema don't make people rise to their feet and applaud, but we want to know, what's your philosophy on ovations at live events?

If you're UK-based and get the chance, go to watch The Importance Of Being... Earnest? They're on tour now, finishing at Edinburgh Fringe. Absolutely hilarious, and different every night.

Neoliberal economics is killing the arts
By Tim Lutton, originally published by Red Pepper May 28, 2024

"...As a society, we must resist art-as-capital, where it is reduced to pure exchange value in a market of commodities. There, any politically-charged and counter-hegemonic content is rendered powerless, constituted as a stable harmonisation of the dominant socio-political order and drowning out all contradictions.

...In the present era, the tendency towards total marketisation of artistic production accompanies perpetual austerity and an atomised rentier economy that is shrinking public and social life. Without a rupture from neoliberal capitalism in general, the means to make new, generative and disruptive art disappears, and much else that is meaningful in our lives will follow after. The rest is silence."

I'm not late for , it turns out time is an illusion (Lunchtime doubly so). Since I've started whimsical, I'll go with the fun piece I just wrote up - an Imitation Spade Guinea "In memory of the good old days". You should definitely read: - it talks of I can't afford, imitations of which there are many, garden implements & late 1800s ! Enjoy :)

«¿Qué es la vida? Un frenesí.
¿Qué es la vida? Una ilusión,
una sombra, una ficción;
y el mayor bien es pequeño;
que toda la vida es sueño,
y los sueños, sueños son».

"What is life? A madness.
What is life? An illusion,
a shadow, a story.
And the greatest good is little enough:
for all life is a dream,
and dreams themselves are only dreams."

La vida es sueño (1635)

~Pedro Calderón de la Barca (17 January 1600 – 25 May 1681)

A vital step forward for Parramatta as Sydney's second CBD.

The old Riverside Theatre is frankly starting to show its age.

Having a modern venue for theatre, concerts, and live music in Western Sydney is an important investment for the arts.

Norwegian Dramatist & Poet Henrik Ibsen died in 1906.

Ibsen is renowned for his pioneering work in realism, a movement in theater that sought to depict everyday life & societal issues with honesty and accuracy. He moved away from the romanticized and melodramatic styles that dominated the 19th century.

Hi Masto, I'm home. The day began with the wind and rain which had me wanting to listen only to The Cure during my commutes and while I was prepping for class. Can the eyeliner be far behind. I jest. My eyes are far too sensitive for eye makeup these days and all of my fancy eye makeup palettes are going to waste.

It was an okay day. Another Drama Lab with my Oral Literacy MA Students. Their big project for this semester is connected to The Lady's Not For Burning. My approach to Oral Literacy is Oral Literacy x Pop Culture x Performance Studies. I'm enjoying it! I always enjoy teaching performance as it takes me back to some of those roots (I did two years of a performance studies x literature PhD before I defected fully to lit to be a Gothic scholar)

I have just discovered that the Baltimore Rock Opera Society exists, its current show is A Computer That Loves: And Why Not To Build One, "a original universe-spanning sci-fi rock opera epic with a big (and heavy) heart."

And that they are livestreaming the May 31 show!

Got to playtest Penumbra today!

The concept is based on a play I wrote and was performed nearly 15 years ago.

Here are the game tokens that represent the cast!
