Space can be folded!? Sound can be folded!?

14 May 2015
May 14, 2015

In our lunch break we popped into PSAS for the brilliant SpaceFolding SoundPlastic exhibition, part of this year’s Totally Huge New Music Festival. Walking through a labyrinth of light and sound you wonder – Are they connected? What do they mean? The exhibition has been evolving over the past weeks, including two performances which involved volunteers and the artist being wrapped in plastic. Read more →

Jessica Mauboy Performance at Kulcha

10 Nov 2013
November 10, 2013

It’s not often we get freebie invites, so it was very nice of Nescafé to invite us to a private live acoustic session with Jessica Mauboy at Kulcha this week. The acoustic sessions are being run to celebrate 75 years of Nescafé (I had no idea it had been around that long) and most of the people at the gig were competition winners: competitions like the type you see on the top of a jar of coffee. I’ve entered loads of those competitions over the years and never won anything, so it was interesting to see what they’re like. We even got free coffee and Kit Kats… which is never a bad thing.

October 18, 2012

We’ve been a little late posting about this one but, you know better late than never. Two weekends ago we got invited to go see the WA Circus School’s Circus Pleine Lune show. Ten minutes before curtain-up at 6:50pm all the seats were full and the queue was right out the door. It was standing room only folks.

Visit to the 2012 Street Arts Festival

09 Apr 2012
April 9, 2012

If you haven’t been down to the Street Arts Festival, you should really check it out on Monday (last day). It’s a great event for Freo and has brought some amazingly skilful and entertaining performers into town. Our tips to make the most of your visit:

1. Find a good spot (simply sitting down on the pavement is perfect), so you can relax and enjoy the performance without getting sore feet or feeling stressed by the crowd.
2. Bring plenty of change (if you don’t want to donate $50 notes).
3. Move around – there’s a lot going on all across Fremantle and each pitch has its own feel. This festival is as much about enjoying Freo as it is about the performances.

A great thing about the Festival is the car-free Cappuccino Strip. How fantastic would it be, if it could be kept that way – always and anytime. The cafes could spread out with more tables and chairs and give the space the feel of a Southern European boulevard.

Dilip and the Davs at the old Dav Tav

08 Sep 2010
September 8, 2010

The Davilak Tavern is of course now the South Beach Hotel, down at the end of South Terrace in South Freo, and not content with just a new look, new menu (including the great gut-busting steak night on Tuesdays), there is also a load of live music on the way too.

Funky local reggae/dance group Dilip and the Davs are doing a free gig down there tonight (Weds 8th) ahead of kick-starting a new acoustic Sunday session at the SBH from the first weekend in October. Great news for denizens of South Freo for whom Mojos/North Freo is just a bit too far to stagger home from after a few pints and an hour or two on the dance floor. You never quite know what you’ll get with the Davs, and if reggae isn’t quite your thing don’t let put you off, because the sound is a whole lot more besides.

Lily Hibberd (VIC) is an artist and writer who considers the notion of community and belonging in the intimate performance Being of the Book at Moores Apartment this Friday and Saturday. She invites people to participate in her performance work by loaning a book to be read, or engaging in a one-on-one reading.

Lily asks that contributors send her books about belonging to a place. She will assemble a collection of donated books, which visitors to her performance will choose from to have read aloud. Sessions will last approximately fifteen minutes and participants are encouraged to reflect on the experience afterward.

Everyone is invited to send in or nominate a book and to take part in the performance. All books will be returned after the performance.

Friday 6 & Saturday 7 August
10am–12pm and 2pm–6pm (sessions of ~15 minutes)
Bookings are not required, but if you like you can book a certain slot (call 9432 9555)
