jaap blonk, australian tour
Kurt Schwitter’s epic Ursonate is arguably the apotheosis of sound poetry, and Dutch musician and vocalist Jaap Blonk knows it off-by-heart, performing it since the early 1980s (listen here http://www.ubu.com/sound/blonk_ursonate86.html). Blonk presents his and others’ sound poetry, as well as his intense and often humorous vocal/electronic improvisations around Australia in March.
Jaap Blonk tour: Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Canberra, Wollongong; for dates &venues see http://www.jaapblonk.com/Pages/ontour.html

wow film festival, wift & seen & heard, red rattler
A lot has changed in terms of gender equality over the last 50 years, but the balance of prominent female filmmakers to male is still way out of whack. This is something the World of Women’s Cinema (WOW), run by Women in Film & Television (WIFT), has long worked to remedy. The 19th WOW festival is now upon us with screenings and panel discussions exploring the world and cinema ‘through the eyes of women.’
WOW, March 5-15, various venues, Sydney; www.wift.org/wow/
Also celebrating women in film is the Sydney-based, Seen & Heard, a series of screenings over three weeks promoting the message "that films made by women are not just for women, but are films that should be seen by everyone."
Seen & Heard, Red Rattler, Marrickville, March 7, 14, 21;http://seenandheardfilms.com/2013-festival/
