Venus in Fur

Here’s a piece of dinner-party trivia for you: the term “masochism” came from the name of an Austrian writer, Leopold von Sacher-Masoch, who was renowned in the late 19th century for writing about sexual relationships of power and dominance, which at the time was incredibly controversial. His only work translated into English was the novella […]

Bloggers Dinner at the Naked Fig

Trust us, the Naked Fig has way more going for them than their cheeky branding and beachside location. We dined there the other night and had one of the tastiest feeds we’ve had in a while – lamb ‘lollies’ coated in hoi sin and sesame? Roasted salmon with potato gratin? Gnocchi topped with candied walnuts? […]

Those Who Fall in Love…

Leaving Thursday night’s performance of Those Who Fall in Love Like Anchors Dropped Upon the Ocean Floor I made a passing remark about a former boyfriend to the friend I’d taken with me. The friend looked at me and asked me, gently, whether the play, with its fairly-obvious focus on love, had made me muse […]

Open House Perth 2014

Perth is my hometown. I’ve grown up here. I’ve learned to drive and to eat and to read and to write here. I’ve swum in the chilly fresh water at Floreat Beach and watched the sky turn milky purple-white as the sun sets. I’ve smeared Moreton Bay figs into the soles of my shoes walking […]

“We’re living the high life,” smirked my date. He wasn’t kidding, and not just because of the gourmet four-course menu, the artfully arranged plates, or our waiter who tended on us with the gentle devotion of a baby Labrador. We were literally up high – a whopping thirty-three stories above ground level, with dizzying 360-degree […]

The School of Life

Sure, you might have learned your times tables, where the hell to put the apostrophe and the ‘s’ and how many H’s bond to the O, but how many of us can actually say we were schooled on how to take on life itself? You know, like how to master the art of relationships, make […]

The Last Great Hunt

It was fitting, really, that during our chat last week, I ran some future-career plans past Adriane Daff. Though she’s been working as an actress for a fair while, she too has only recently taken a step into the big-ol’ world of an adult career, by forming with some friends a proper, grown-up theatre production […]

A Chat with Adriane Daff

Adriane Daff is explaining to me, in a break between rehearsals for her new show, how a fan turns on during the performance without anyone touching it. “Anthony Watts, who has made a lot of gadgets and purpose-built tech elements for us, made an attachment that tells the computer how to turn things on, according […]

100 Hampton Road

No matter how many times you were taught as a child not to judge a book by its cover, I’d be willing to bet you still slip up from time to time. And fair enough – it’s difficult to remember the value behind that worn-out phrase when you’re so often forced into situations that require […]
