My Strangest Audition

The life of a performer is an unusual one. It’s filled with wonder and a bit of glamour, yes, but also a lot of uncertainty. You’re always thinking about the next gig or if you spent enough time learning your lines. At the centre of all of this swirling uncertainty is the audition. Episode Five…

Composing with Christine Johnston

Christine Johnston is one of our favourite performers. Whether it’s as the ferociously hungry witch Baba Yaga, or as one third of the beloved The Kransky Sisters, Johnston’s performances are always bold, funny and completely original. We chat to her about what she’s been up to and the process she went through to compose original…

Honey, I’m Home Book Club

A natural response to upheaval is to set goals. To give yourself structure, something to work towards. Some set about beginning long-ignored DIY projects and renovations, some threw themselves into fitness and others set themselves the goal of reading more. To celebrate the exceptionally bookish new episode of Honey, I’m Home, we had our three…

Making Lemonade: Introducing Honey, I’m Home

Chris Edser, Jonathon Oxlade and Renate Henschke had a really great idea. We had creatives on the payroll who couldn’t perform or go on tour onstage due to public safety restrictions relating to COVID-19. It was the perfect opportunity for us to Make Lemonade. Made possible by funding support from Arts South Australia’s COVID-19 Arts…
