Token Skeptic Perth Fest And Fringe Special – Episode One

Welcome to the first Fest and Fringe Special Episode! This year, I’m doing a number of Perth International Arts Festival and FringeWorld Interviews and I thought I’d put them together in a few podcasts. Here’s what I’ve been up to so far – feel free to suggest shows and events to tokenskeptic@gmail.com.

*****

Interview with director Jaco Van Dormael – director of  “The Brand New Testament” – currently screening as a part of the Lotterywest Festival Films Season 2.

God lives in human form as a cynical writer with his young opinionated daughter in present-day Brussels, Belgium. She concludes that her dad is doing a terrible job and decides to rewrite the world, which leaves God angry, powerless and adamant to get his power back.

Are you ready to get lost in FringeWorld?

This year a 300 square meter maze has popped up in the Pleasure Gardens. The Get Lost Maze is produced by local creative agency JumpClimb in conjunction with the UK-Based Dot Comedy – and is an interactive attraction set to be enjoyed by all ages.

I proceeded to get lost at the Fringeworld opening – and spoke to a Dot Comedy Get Lost performer known only as “The Father” – and to Festival Director Amber Hassler at the opening of the FringeWorld for 2016.

*****

Playing at FringeWorld, presented by Company O, Oleanna is the story of a university student’s grievance with her professor that very quickly gets out of hand.

The drama is high stakes, age-old conflict, two immutable opposing forces unleashed on each other while contained within the glass cage of a tertiary institution. I spoke to the actress who plays Carol, Rosalba Verrucci about the production. The production is currently playing at the Skye Bar, at the Hidden Bar in Northbridge.

Tremendous thanks to the FringeWorld Festival people, the Perth International Arts Festival and radio station RTRFM, where the first interview aired previously, especially producer Peter Barr.
