I'd hate you to think I was just being slack...

16:00 Metadance by Chrissie Parrott and Jonathan Mustard at PICA
20:00 The National Theatre of Scotland's Black Watch at the Perth Convention Centre
Monday, my "day off"...
00:30 "Red eye" flight back to Melbourne, arrives 05:55
19:00 Phone interview with David D'Or (counter-tenor, world music singer, Israel's Eurovision Song Contest entrant 2004, enormous spunk) in Tel Aviv. (Great fun.)
Keating!, the glorious musical.
Malthouse Theatre's Tartuffe
The Australian Ballet's fifth bodytorque season "to the pointe" at the Sydney Theatre. (Finding accommodation in Sydney in the lead-up to Mardi Gras was laughably difficult. I ended up at the Boardrider Backpacker and Budget Accommodation Hotel in Manly... only thing available under five hundred a night, for fux sake.)
David Hare's Vertical Hour at the Opera House Drama Theatre, an STC production directed by Julian Meyrick. (See Mr Pickard's blog for plenty of debate on it. Start here.)
Back in Melbourne for a first showing of the fruits of Frances d'Ath's residency at Swinburne.
The hit count? Four and a half big hits, two and a half big misses... (I'm such a tease.)
