Such amazing performances from @martadusseldorp & Benjamin Winspear in the latest @qld_theatre production of Scenes from a Marriage. It’s certainly a powerful & thought-provoking production. @atqpac #scenesfromamarriage#qldtheatre
Just found out that my Lighting Design for @griffintheatre and @qld_theatre production of RICE was nominated for a Sydney Theatre Broadway World Award. Lucky to be sharing this alongside some other great performers and designers. It would be great to take this home for Queensland but I need your vote.

Opening night of the @undercoverartistfestival was a blast. @goldelerayment was in true Rogues style hanging with the best and brightest including the very smart and talented @jackietrad, deputy Premier of #Queensland . Thanks for being such a great supporter of accessible arts Jackie! Now we just have to wow audiences at @qld_theatre tonight.
The heartBeast sign is on the street again, which can only mean one thing - the rhinoceroses are in town. A full house, and an opening night that roared through the reservoir!
Thanks to everyone who came along tonight, and for the huge applause!

An Octoroon ||
Don't miss out on this amazing production! FINAL DAYS!! Ending Sunday the 8/10
It’s the story of historical Louisiana. Or historical Far North Queensland. Or it’s the story of a black playwright. Or how race is portrayed on stage. Or, maybe ... it’s about how they’re all the same story.
Brash and provocative, the satirical comedy An Octoroon can trace its roots back to an 1856 novel, then a stage melodrama by crowd-pleasing Irish impresario Dion Boucicault. When the story of a man who scandalously falls for a slave on his Louisiana plantation premiered in New York in 1859, it helped fan the flame of the American Civil War.
Today – with race still as incendiary a global issue as it was then – dazzling and radical African-American playwright Branden Jacobs-Jenkins has torn apart and rebuilt the original text as a towering, immersive and wildly funny theatrical experience like no other.
In a version subtly recontextualised to uncover and skewer Australia’s shameful history of slavery, leading Aboriginal artist and commentator Nakkiah Lui (Black Comedy) makes her directorial debut in a Queensland exclusive, co-produced with Brisbane Festival.
Funny and thought provoking. A MUST see! #qldtheatre#brisbanefestival#leadingfromqld#theatre#qld#art#comedy#australia#brisbane#fun 📷 @qld_theatre

Well, now for something really different; very different and very funny. Black is white and white is black; slavery is in fashion and slaves are complacent and seemingly content as they go about their daily chores. Every type of comedy device is used from boom-boom gags to straight out slapstick and costume and delivery jokes as the brilliant cast spoke the lines in 19th century melodramatic tones with some delicious over-acting.
It was all very funny.
