Review: Cirque Du Bloke – Weekend Getaway

This is an awe-inspiring show that puts a smile on your face from start to finish with amazing physical feats and delightful characters. Bayside Rock was a fantastic space for “Cirque Du Bloke – Weekend Getaway” as the sheer height of the climbing walls and colored holds already had us transfixed. Yet the backdrop was nothing […]

Review – Midsummer Night’s Dream

What a wonderful piece of theatre. I must confess this is one of my favourite Shakespearian plays and it is always so entrancing to watch the unbelievable unfolding of events, hapless quests of love and mischievous games from the fairies. We are so lucky that a theatre company has brought this classic to Frankston and […]

REVIEW – It Sounds Silly

It Sounds Silly is collaborative work between young local performers and the highly regarded dance company Chunky Move. It was such a delight to have them performing in the Wells Street Mall this evening and the locals knew it, with a crowd packed around all sides and some punters watching through the glass doors at […]

Review: It Sounds Silly

This is a dynamic and mesmerizing dance work that clearly showcases Frankston’s talented youth. The charming concept of childhood memories and fears is the basis for this theatrical performance. It is presented in the ideal place to attract an audience as the mall is a popular meeting spot, close to shops, restaurants and the cinema. […]

Review: Periphery

This is an intriguing dance piece that deserves more exposure. It has the clever concept of the audience standing outside a shop’s front and looking in through the windows to view the performance.  It is slightly voyeuristic and fascinating watching through the glass. The show begins with the 3 talented performers in the dark, using torches as […]
