The Night Zoo at Spare Parts

09 Jan 2015
January 9, 2015

We’ve been to Spare Parts quite a few times now and enjoyed every show. Every performance is so unique and so much effort is put into each production. Their latest show runs until the 31st of January so there’s plenty of time to catch the performance.

Dancing with meerkats, penguins or elephants! These were only things Jamie could dream of – that is until The Night Zoo came to visit!

Spare Parts Puppet Theatre’s production of The Night Zoo is the perfect summer holidays entertainment full of music, dancing and laughter. It features a stunning puppet cast of life-size animal characters, including Elephant, Giraffe, Penguin, Cranes, Thorny Devils, and the hilarious dancing Meerkats brought to life by performers Ben Mortley and Sarah Nelson through puppetry, dance, animation, masks – and a light sprinkling of manure!

Be reminded of the joy that animals bring to our lives as Jamie goes on a wild night-time adventure with the inhabitants of The Night Zoo. The summer season runs from January 5 to 31 with two shows daily at 10am and 1pm, Monday to Saturday (no shows Sundays or Public Holidays). There are also two special Friday evening performances n January 16 & 30 at 6.30pm. At 45 minutes and suitable for ages three and above, The Night Zoo is a joyful summer experience for all family to share.

Did you go to the markets on Saturday? If you didn’t you might be the only one as it seemed like the whole of Fremantle decided to have dinner at Bathers Beach that evening. We met up with a group of friends and bumped in to a load more over the course of the evening. We had some bruschetta (delicious, try it), pad thai, gozleme, hot dogs little mini fluffy pancake things and paletas for dessert. The wind was blowing hard so it got pretty cold when the sun dropped… need to remember it’s not quite Summer just yet a jacket would have been a good idea.

We went to the jazz night downstairs at the Odd Fellow last Thursday. We arrived early at 6:30 for a 7:00pm start so we propped ourselves up at the bar for a few drinks. By 7:30 we realised we were two and a half hours early for the show as it was stating at nine but that didn’t matter because we having such a great time. The bar staff at the Odd Fellow are really wonderful and by the time it was jazz o’clock we’d had quite a few cocktails and several cheese plates, damn that delicious triple brie.

Fremantle by Marika Brock

October 22, 2014

Marika had her previous exhibition at Ootong & Lincoln if you remember. Now her latest work is on display at the Tradewinds Hotel restaurant.

Marika takes the chance to print her work on large scale, allowing the colour and graphic imagery to have its full impact on the viewer. The framed works have been lacquered, adding a brushstroke finish that (along with colour and composition) intentionally leaves the viewer wondering if they are looking at a painting or a photograph.
