HOLLYWOOD HEROES TAKE ON SHAKESPEARE

Posted in Events, News

Andy Fraser and Stuart Halusz , the energy behind comedy/stage combat/improv duo ‘Hollywood Heroes’, have been working hard over the past few months creating a Shakespeare more accessible to today’s youth.

The show is called Shakespeare Shenanigans and through the exploration of Shakespeare fight scenes such as the fatal duel between Hamlet and Laertes, Macbeth and Macduff and even quarrels between some of Willy’s more feisty female players, the Hero’s have been winning over youthful audiences across Perth. With strong backgrounds in stage combat, Andy and Stuart show how these fight scenes came to life at the time of first performance (1500’s) whilst educating the audience about the characters, the context, the costume and, of course, the weapons. And yes, the show is incredibly mindful of safety; taking the audience into the details of a ‘safe’ fight – best carried out by trained professionals!

Shakespeare Shenanigans is a road show with a wonderful ‘Globe Theatre’ set design travelling to schools and festivals delivering a new perspective on Shakespeare, dead or alive…

“My Year 10 Drama students had just finished a unit of work on Shakespeare and thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to see a professional production covering a number of his works, in an engaging and highly entertaining performance.   Four of my students were thrilled to be given the opportunity to join “Shakespeare Shenanigans” onstage – whilst this caused some nervousness at the start, the students came offstage absolutely buzzing. Andy and Stuart’s manner and banter immediately grabbed the students in the workshop component and the work was perfectly-suited to the student’s interest and abilities.” Sacred Heart College (as part of the 4ARTS festival in 2013)

MATTY T WALL ENDS GIGNITION IN FLAMES!

August 7th, 2013
Posted in Events, News

Big Sky’s Matty T Wall entered into the Swan Basements regular music outburst, Gignition, a few weeks back.

This high energy gig has seen bands from all styles and backgrounds perform to a wanting audience. Matty had the honour of closing the night as the final act… and this is what had to be said of him in a review from themusic.com.au

‘…The decision to conclude a night of rawk and punk noise with some stinging, blue-eyed blues was deft, as Matty T Wall proved his technical chops by playing guitar behind his own back and maintaining a slick legato even when aggressively shredding all over his fretboard. Capably backed by some well-poised bass and a drummer who knew how to use his kit as a palette rather than simply an anvil, Wall’s Spillane-esque storytelling illuminated an atmospheric number packed with femme fatales and grimy machismo; one of the night’s most compelling moments.’ – Christopher James
