To be a part of it, just drop in any time this week and meet the team.
Fabulous genre-queer performance ensemble post have showcases of their Oedipus Schmoedipus at APAM, the Australian Performing Arts Market, on Friday 26 Feb.
Oedipus Schmoedipus takes the all-time greatest plays, picks out the death scenes, mixes them together and hands them back to the people. After all, death belongs to everyone.
For this mammoth undertaking of gore, laments, requiems and war cries, Australia’s silliest/smartest theatre makers,post, are joined by 25 volunteers – a new cast rehearsed fresh for each performance. Cunningly and cleverly carried off, Oedipus Schmoedipus is a democratic theatrical extravaganza two-and-a-half thousand years in the making. Fed up with white men staging the deaths of white men in plays written by white men, the white ladies of post have pirated the classics to confront the great unknown. This is their bid for theatre history –either to join it, or wreck it.
Sydney folks: Two shows announced for The Cambodian Space Project’s trippy tropical rock opera, Cosmic Cambodia, in Sydney Festival: in theatre at Parramatta Riverside (Jan 17), and rocking the Magic Mirrors Spigeltent in the Garden (Jan 26).
And for Brisbane peeps: One night only in Brisbane Powerhouse’s World Theatre Festival, Feb 25 9pm on the Turbine Platform at BPH. With the team together in January we plan to write some new songs and develop the piece further, hence this version goes out under the title Hanuman Spaceman.
This show is really special, so don’t miss out! Bookings on the festival links above, more info on our site here.
I’m in UK right now researching new producing models and relationships, particularly the idea of exchange through the idea of producers-in-residence, in a network or organisations between Australia & Europe.

We’ve just moved in to our new office at happening contemporary arts space, Carriageworks. Same PO box address if you happen to be posting to us (hello, bank, hello insurer), but you can drop in for a chat, an argument or a brainstorm in our new digs next to Force Majeure on the second floor. Or meet for a coffee/drink in our new meeting room, Cornerstone Bar. Still some decorating to do, and an office-warming and celebration of a pretty amazing first year coming up…
I’ll be a IETM Athens, arriving a few days before the event, 16-20 October 2013. Look forward to seeing you there!
I’m in London from April 4 to April 10, seeing lots of great new work in Spill Festival. Then I’ll be at IETM in Dublin April 10 to 15.
