Review of La Cucina dell'Arte Circus Ronaldo at Perth Festival

La-Cucina-Dell-Arte-Circus-Ronaldo-Perth-Festival-1-150

Last night my partner and I were fortunate enough to snag a couple of seats for Circus Ronaldo's performance of La Cucina dell'Arte as part of the Perth Festival for 2013.

The shows have been selling out, so we weren't surprised to find a large mass of people milling around before the show opened in Russell Square at 8pm.

While waiting for the show to begin, the crowd was serenaded by a busking didgeridoo player, whose stone-age sound contrasted nicely with the Renaissance style art of the Circus Ronaldo billboarding.

Review of Xavier Toby - White Trash at the Perth Fringe Festival 2013

Review-Xavier-Toby-White-Trash-Perth-Fringe-Festival-2013-150 

My partner and I headed out to the Perth Fringe Festival on Thursday night to check out Xavier Toby's comedy act, titled White Trash. With its focus on racism amongst ourselves, our family and friends, and Australia as a whole, I was interested to see how Xavier would tackle this touchy topic while still attempting to get a laugh from the audience.
