‘Embrace your inner German’

posted by Emmy O'Neill September 28, 2017 0 comments

Any tagline that reads ’embrace your inner German’ is always going to get me across the line. Growing up I used to hide my love of sauerkraut, spätzle, leberwurst, semmelknödel (we called bread balls) and pretzels… They were not the kind of foods that the other kids found ‘cool’ or ‘exotic’… And whist sauerkraut is on trend as a 2017 super gut food; I can honestly say I have been eating that fermented cabbage stuff for 32 years!

The Hamlet Apocalypse

posted by Emmy O'Neill August 16, 2017 0 comments

You can’t hide from live theatre. You can’t pause the show, or look on your phone, or be distracted by life. Theatre is in your face. It is live; breathing and alive.

Some pieces of theatre stick like glue to your memory. They get under your skin and almost crawl around; unable to get out, permanently living inside all of your cells. The Hamlet Apocalypse by The Danger Ensemble has well and truly got inside my head, under my skin and inside every single one of my cells! I’ve literally not been able to stop thinking about the performance since Friday night! Continue Reading

Spotlight On: Alice Foulcher

posted by Emmy O'Neill August 14, 2017 0 comments

This morning I’m having a virtual hangout with Melbourne based actor/writer Alice Foulcher. We are talking all things, great Australian Films; (that’s right Alice & her hubby Gregory made a great Australian film), tight-ass movie budgets, making people laugh, fashion, keeping it real and of course coffee.

Alice stars in and co-wrote ‘That’s Not Me’ Film with her husband/director Gregory Erdstein. ‘That’s Not Me’ was created whilst doing an artists residency in Paris, France… sounds pretty schamncy fancy #right! Well these down-to-earth Aussies are here to show the world that a) Australians can make GREAT comedies and B) you don’t need a shit tonne of money to do it.

That’s Not Me is a tale of shattered dreams and charts the heartbreak and hope that comes from following your childhood dreams. Featuring ever so-lovely Alice Foulcher in the roles of Polly and Amy, with support from Isabel Lucas (TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN), and Richard Davies (OFFSPRING).

WAHOO… the wait is finally over and the EKKA opens today!

The sun is shining, the sky is blue and the winds have just started to pick up… must be that time of year again. There is no denying it, it’s EKKA TIME.

It is actually hard to believe that we are already in the middle of August and that in fact it is EKKA time again… it only seems like last week we were chowing down a dagwood dog followed by a strawberry ice-cream…

IT IS NIGH

posted by Emmy O'Neill August 3, 2017 0 comments

If there was an apocalypse coming how would you spend your last night?

Local Brisbane theatre company, The Danger Ensemble would put on a play… Hamlet to be specific!

The premise is simple. Basically seven actors stage Hamlet on the eve of the apocalypse. What isn’t there to love about that?!

The Hamlet Apocalypse was originally presented and produced by La Mama (2009, Melbourne) and then had hugely successful seasons at both the Adelaide Fringe Festival and at La Boite. Years later it is back, bolder than ever at the Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts. This year’s cast features some of Queensland’s most talented actors and we’re ready to be on the edge of our seat watching the performances. For all the fashion lovers out there, think ‘Post-Mod-Elizabethan’ looks, designed by local fashion designer Oscar Clark. #SWOON

Artistic Director Steven Mitchell Wright has always been a game changer, creating visually striking pieces of theatre. We can’t wait to experience and soak in all that the The Hamlet Apocalypse has to offer.

“THE HAMLET APOCALYPSE puts the human experience under a microscope in a very high pressure environment…. It creates a space for audiences to observe a group of very real people wrestling with their own mortality, and to also reflect upon the choices they might make, the regrets they have, the joys they’ve shared and the lives they’ve lived.”

This year also marks a huge achievement for The Danger Ensemble; it is their TEN YEAR ANNIVERSARY! If that was a marriage they would be getting some tin or aluminium… hmmmmm, seriously? Well we think ten years in the theatre is a huge achievement** and deserves more than a piece of metal… and if their earlier seasons of Macbeth is anything to go by, Brisbane you are in for a treat.

We’ve teamed up with The Danger Ensemble to giveaway a double pass to the Friday the 11 August 7:30pm performance of The Hamlet Apocalypse. For all competition details heard to our Instagram profile @brisbanethreads. 

 The Danger Ensemble’s THE HAMLET APOCALYPSE opens this Wednesday 9th August.

Grown up fun at Dendy Portside

You know those mornings when you wake up, vague memories of the night before, way too many drinks and the late night pizza (or maccas dash) on the way home? That ‘rough night’ we all try to forget, where we were just letting our hair down and having fun out with fiends? Yeah that night. Well… Rough Night is the new #LMAO R-rated comedy about just that… a group of girls having a weekend renion-turned rough night… which may or may not include killing a stripper (by accident of course).
