Melbourne Festival; I all but missed it…

Posted on November 1, 2014

Due to my long London trip I missed almost the entirety of the Melbourne festival performing arts offer. I am mopping up the visual arts shows that linger a little longer and was lucky to catch the Tarrawarra Biennale early. I did manage to see Complexity of Belonging by Chunky Move in an early preview, and would have to agree with the reviews. Ros Oades very kindly invited me into a run of her Hello, Goodbye and Happy Birthday show and I had seen much of the international program when overseas- Brokentalkers, Heiner Goebbels…I was therefore not too upset to miss what seems not to have been a vintage festival and to be back in the run of new shows opening as we head towards the end of the year.
