As the days get shorter and the nights colder, it can be tempting to hide away and hibernate through the winter months. Of course sometimes a night in binging on Netflix is just what you need, but don’t let the cold and rain stop you from exploring Perth this winter – there’s still plenty to see, eat and do!
How much of what we see on reality television is actually real? We all know that there’s more to ‘reality’ than what we see on the screen, but we still need to question whether situations are contrived, if outcomes have been manipulated, and how the raw footage has been edited to create entertainment.
These issues are under the spotlight in the theatrical work So You Think You’re Charlie Smith.
A few weeks ago, I was invited along to experience all that Eat The Street has to offer with an awesome bloggers brunch – if you follow me on Instagram, you would’ve seen all the amazing food we got to eat, but I wanted to share a few more details about the day.
Eat The Street offer unique walking tours of Perth that give you the opportunity to eat some of the city’s best food at a range of impressive locations. Forget boring, stuffy tours crammed with irrelevant historical facts and generic touristy venues, these tours are laid back, fun, and most importantly, put a huge emphasis on amazing food.
Unless you’ve worked nearby, you’ve probably never really had a reason to check out the iconic QV1 building in the heart of the city, but that is all about to change.
Earlier this week I was invited along to learn a bit more an exciting new dining and retail destination under development at QV1.
El Bizarro was back at Fringe World in 2017 for its third instalment, and by now everyone in the know knows that this is a show that delivers on its promises – Danger! Freaks! Glamour! – with a show that is twisted, electric and enthralling.
Absolutely not for the faint of heart, El Bizarro has quickly become a favourite among Fringe goers and Fringe performers, for the way it pushes boundaries in a celebration of excess.
With a background in music and sketch comedy, Cameron James has the guts and the experience to hit the mark as a relaxed, laid back stand-up comedian with his debut comedy hour at Fringe World.
CamJam, as he is known online, has achieved a lost since I last saw him in as part of the duo Jekyll x James at Fringe World two years ago – placing second in Triple J’s RAW Comedy National Final, he has toured national as a support for well-known Australian and international comedians and was hand-picked to perform at Splendour in the Grass.
Smart and charismatic comedian Jacques Barrett is a veteran of the Australian club and festival circuit, with almost a decade of shows under his belt – making his ‘Particularly Good at This’ a funny Fringe trip not to be missed.
Well-paced and consistently on the mark, this ridiculously fun hour is filled with character renditions, strong performance skills and social commentary that captures the audience’s full attention and refuses to let it go.
