Portraits // Observatory Theatre

Portraits is a horrifying tale that perfectly encapsulates some very big questions around legacy and how much loyalty we owe to the ideals and values of our parents after they die. It is not exactly enjoyable to watch because it is so cynical, but it somehow feels necessary currently to ask these questions. Driscoll’s play explores legacy and tradition and begs the question: can we ever really break free from our legacy or are we merely products of our inheritance? Observatory Theatre’s production of Portraits moves the audience from their comfortable existence into the world of the Godbold mansion to face not only the ghosts of this family but also those of their own. Bravo!

Up-and-coming Brisbane artist challenges her cultural background in a new art and photography exhibition

Local, up-and-coming abstract painter and photographer, Jui The Artist, will be displaying her collection of works at the Red Bowler Coffee Lounge and Wine Bar on Sunday, 3 October 2021. ‘The Wave’ will feature roughly 44 pieces of abstract art and photography from Jui The Artist. Jui has been creating abstract art for the last ten years. Jui says that the discovery of abstract art was incredibly empowering and freeing and did wonders for her mental health. This art form fascinated Jui as for the first time she was free to embrace imperfection and mistakes through art. Jui hopes that her work would inspire and encourage others to explore abstract art and to experience the freedom to create anything with passion without the fear of mistakes or the limitations of traditional art.

Leviathan // Brisbane Festival and Queensland Performing Arts Centre

Leviathan painted a rich, complex picture of humanity and our reality that is inevitably tied to the existence of others. The philosophical underpinnings clearly emanated through the flawless choreography, costume and lighting, visual imagery, and sound design. I felt that the message of this work was particularly pertinent in today’s post-coronavirus world. There could not have been a more relevant time to explore the social contract and shared responsibility.
