Chloe Eckert’s “Sage” is a play about Grace and Charlie, two characters who meet on a cliff top from where Grace is about to jump. Yes, it’s a production about mental health issues, but one that avoids typical clichés of the genre.
“Sage” is written and directed by the talented Chloe Eckert and acted by Nic Cutts (Charlie) and Mel Martins (Grace.) All three joined Mason Krollig in the Radio Adelaide North Terrace Studios this week to discuss the various complexities of acting in/producing a play about mental health with only one scene…
“Sage” is being performed at Immanuel College on Thursday the 21st of February at 7PM and again on Friday the 22nd at midday and 7PM. Tickets are just fifteen dollars or thirteen concession. You can get yours at adelaidefringe.com.au.
Vacant Space is a vibrant urban art market inspired by street culture and held during the summer months in the inner city squares of Adelaide.
The first event was held in December, showcasing local music, dance crews, fashion, art, street vendors and more in an effort to embrace Adelaide’s urban culture, foster creativity, and support the local scene.
The next event will be on Sunday, February 10 at Light Square, so Danni Frangos caught up with Vacant Space organiser Sarah Collins and asked her how the initiative began…
Emerging Adelaide artist Zoe Brooks blurs the boundaries of paint, installation and sculpture, stripping back mediums to create an interpretation, or essence, of her subject rather than a perfect portrayal.
Her latest exhibition Revenue and Roadkill explores these themes, taking elements from the Australian landscape and isolating them from their usual backdrop.
Zoe came in to Radio Adelaide over the weekend to speak with Streetcaster Nick Pipe about the exhibition, which is now open upstairs at Urban Cow Studio. Listen below.
Local artist Amy Gilbert has been making art in all mediums for most of her life. Inspired by her surroundings and the familiar, Amy uses recycled materials with connections to those around her and she has continued this approach in her latest exhibition Close to the Heart, a collection of textile brooches to be worn and kept – in her words – close to the heart.
The exhibition opens at Urban Cow Studio on January 6, so Danni Frangos caught up with Amy ahead of the launch and asked her where the inspiration behind the brooches came from.
