    Also a gifted musician and writer, Dino is driven by an overwhelming passion to create and express.

    Throughout his school years Dino was a star tennis player whose idol was John McEnroe. He was destined to be a National Champion, however life had other plans.

    It was later in life that Dino picked up the paint brush. Since then Dino has taken great delight and found endless freedom in manifesting his beautiful and magical dreaming on canvas.

    It is January 2017 and Fairfax Studio in Melbourne’s Art Centre is full of Tim Finn, Split Enz and Crowded House fans. A little older and perhaps wiser.

    The show is White Cloud: a Tim Finn, Ken Duncum and Sue Healey collaboration.

    This production has circled the globe with success for quite a while. Like all great performances and musical scores it is received by this audience with reverence and love.

    Tim Finn enters the stage confident, comfortable looking strong and very handsome underneath his signature shock of white curles. Also on stage are his guitar, ukulele, grand piano, wooden flute and his supremely talented accompanying guitarist who follows his ...

    Melbourne based artist, writer and free verse poet Benjamin Box is an anathema. Or at least that’s what he believes his latest art buyer thinks of him.

    After commissioning his latest work: ‘Forbid Yourself Nothing.’, a large size spray paint and acrylic on canvass; the buyer in question: …”ran for the hills upon completion of the work and didn’t even have the manners to sling me a modest materials fee.”

    I thought it may have been a case of sour grapes until Ben showed me the two ‘test prints’ or ‘studies’ he’d sent the buyer before commencing the final picture.

    “There’s a special place in hell for buyers like that.” he informed me.

    Not only did this ...

  11. Straight White Men

    Beneath the surface, there is a lot being said in Straight White Men as it follows the most banal of Christmas’s spent with family, a situation or scenario that many would have either enjoyed or endured, and as such this scenario provides a relatable counter balance to an undescribed reality that exists outside of these walls.

    The biggest drama to unfold within this narrative centres on the perceived notions of what professional success means to the individual, which is as much as a statement about society as anything else. It is what is left unsaid that fosters the strongest sense ill-feeling, skirting past issues of gender, religion, race and ...

    Sunday 12 June 2016

    Thanks to everyone who joined us to celebrate turning 15. If you missed it, here is Artistic Director Ella Caldwell’s speech from the night.

    Hi everyone.

    Just over 15 years ago I was an excited 19 year old, sitting next to my new acquaintance David Whiteley, in one of the first social gatherings of this new little company, in a small room in Inkerman St.
    I was overwhelmed to have been selected from over 300 actors auditioning in the first round for the Ensemble, and I was the youngest and greenest of the group. I distinctly remember enjoying Dave’s company, his ‘wisened’ perspective of being
