On this episode of the Scenery we were joined by the lovely, unemployed Jane Howard to, among other things, comment on Ryan’s feature with Chris Drummond, director of Brink Production’s Land and Sea. Alex also caught up with Jake One and Jake Two to speak of the devious elements of Print Cult 2012.
Brink Productions began in 1996 as an actors ensemble dedicated to producing innovative and imaginative theatre. Over the years Brink has evolved into an artistic director model, the inaugural and current artistic director being Chris Drummond. Ryan Winter caught up with Chris to speak about Brink’s current production Land & Sea.
Land & Sea in it’s own words is “Intimate and immersive, Land & Sea is a rich and intoxicating theatrical ‘strange loop’. Reality expands and contracts. Time and space are not what they seem as multiple fragments of the same story twist and tunnel into a kaleidoscopic world of wonder and absurdity”, which I’m sure will allured many a punter as much as it did us.
Unfortunately there was a disastrous technical issue with the recording device used to capture the interview that wasn’t picked up until just before we went to air. The file came through at a much lower quality then we would have liked, especially for live radio. However what we did not foresee was the file to cut out half way through it’s expected run time. We offer our sincerest apologies to Chris Drummond, Brink and the lovely Stephanie Lyall.
Thankfully Jane Howard was on deck to save the day who along with Ryan, took us through a quick description and critique of the play. Mateo was on hand to get metaphysical and the such, whilst Alex kept himself to the shallow end of the pool.
Here’s the initial Chris Drummond interview as it appeared on radio
…and here’s the following discussion with Jane, Mateo and Ryan.
Land & Sea was shown at the Queen’s Theatre between 12-26 of May.
Tooth and Nail continue to go from strength to strength. Jake and Cassie, along with those that have drunk the kool aid now have the two locales branded Tooth and Nail. Some months ago they acquired a Corromandel Place unused space that the team now use as their workshop, specifically set up for print work. That space along with the Eliza St gallery, sum up an impressive coup for the artist entrepreneurs.
The Scenery caught up with Jake One and Jake Two to talk about Print Cult 2012. This year’s Print Cult featured Josh Searson, Kerri Ann Wright, Jayson Fox and Jake One and Two featuring various mediums of print work. The exhibition was featured between 18th and 31st of May and from all reports was a great success.
Some may not be aware but the Scenery are a group of volunteers that air our show on community radio station Radio Adelaide. Radio Adelaide survives from three main forms of income, some allocation from the University of Adelaide, the revenue raised from access shows and subscriptions from our listeners. Each hour a show is responsible for a subscriber call, or an concerted effort to pry open your wallet cavity and vacuum some sweet sweet cash. The Scenery survives with the charitable allocation of airtime from Radio Adelaide, and this is how we repay them.
A Scenery subscription call, or: why the Scenery should not be allowed to do subscription calls.
