Ep 52 – Shadow, Give Me Pity!

Across the Aisle attends MIFF! Phil reporting deep from the trenches of all the pleasures of MIFF (queues, choc tops, darting from one venue to the other) and Carla from her loungeroom on the Surf Coast annihilated on edibles. Films covered are Back to Back Theatre’s award winning Shadow – a luscious celluloid imagining of their stage plays that “wonders whether an AI-led near-future society will further disenfranchise the disabled community” and the gloriously deranged Give Me Pity! starring Sophie von Haselberg as Sissy St. Clair in her first Saturday Night Special – ingenue, entertainer, demonically possessed.  We also chat cinema going (how do you do it?) and what is Coming Soon. Enjoy!

Ep 50 – QUEER (NGV), Titicut Follies (ACMI)

It’s official! Across the Aisle is back for a 5th season after we can’t quite believe it 3 years hiatus. In June 2022 we cover the monumental QUEER exhibition at the NGV and Titicut Follies as part of the Frederick Wiseman retrospective at ACMI. We hope you enjoy having us back in your ears, and please tell your friends.

Titicut Follies (along with many other Frederick Wiseman films) is available for viewing on the Kanopy platform. You can get access to this free resource through your school or local library. Tracey Moffatt’s male gaze obliterating Heaven is available to rent on Vimeo (do it, it’s SO WORTH IT).

Ep 49 – Handa Opera La Traviata, The Power of the Dog

Hello and welcome BACK to Across the Aisle. It is episode 49! And as with all things everything has changed, and we are no longer performing arts monogamous. We are arts with a capital A polyamorous. So, please watch Handa Opera’s 2012 production of La Traviata on the Opera Australia website and The Power of the Dog on Netflix (or in the cinema if at all possible). During Intermission we talk pandemic specific changes to our arts consumption and in Coming Soon we pick a few highlights to think about for potential future episodes.
