The Perth Writers Festival is back for another year, bringing with it inspiring writers and thinkers from around the world. The festival will be running from February 19 – 21, where you can catch workshops and panels featuring a strong food focus.
I spoke to Katherine Dorrington, the festival’s program manager, to discuss this year’s exciting ‘paddock to print‘ line-up and much more.
Western Australia’s hottest young playwrights, Gita Bezard and Will O’Mahony are offering insights into the lengths some go to for friendship and the chance at a new life.
As is often the case in art, these plays are also asking the question - what would you do? The two productions are under the Loaded label, currently showing at the studio underground at the State Theatre. I had the chance to catch both plays, called “Girl Shut Your Mouth” and “Tonsils and Tweezers”.
I spoke to Stephanie Panozzo from “Girl Shut Your Mouth” and Hoa Xuande from "Tonsils and Tweezers".
