Our Fringe show Everything Will Be Ok is going really well. We’re playing to extremely appreciative audiences, they hang around afterwards and ask lots of questions, about the ideas behind it, about the puppetry involved, about how long it took to build, all sorts of things. They tell us that it’s absorbing and magical, which is what we were going for. It’s always so wonderful when things work out the way you’d planned. If you’re in Melbourne any time during the next week, come along! 9:15 at 45 Downstairs (little Collin St, Melbourne) Weds to Sat next week or 7:15 tonight.
Here is a photo of one of the scenes, where Debbie is talking to Ayn Rand and Jose Arguelleus.
A couple more shots of the show can be found on Flickr here.
The opening for the exhibition I’ve curated for Fringe, Echo’s Lost was also beautiful, a number of people braved the rain and the cold to stand under Circa’s awning to watch the unveiling. I don’t want to post complete photos, I don’t want to spoil the surprise, but I thought I might give you a taste of the show.

The artists involved are
So come along and see some beautiful art. The front window of Circa Vintage Store, 102 Gertrude St, Fitzroy.
And over at Miss Pen Pen’s blog, she’s posted about a wonderful book called Yarnbombing: The Art of Crochet and Knit Graffiti by Mandy Moore and Leanne Prain, which features photos of the Doiley tree outside her shop, Cottage Industrys, on Gertrude St. It looks like an awesome book and I’m heading out to get a copy this week.
If in Melbourne, you can pick up your own copy from Artisan Books on, you guessed it, Gertrude St across from Dantes (and you can check out Echo’s Lost at the same time otherwise you can get it from Amazon here.
