Treasured Photos of Random Strangers, James Dive, The Glue Society for Art and About Sydney Treasured Photos of Random Strangers, James Dive, The Glue Society for Art and About Sydney
Right time, right place during the City of Sydney’s annual Art & About you could find yourself part of a group portrait taken by James Dive of the aptly titled Glue Society in the series Treasured Photos of Random Strangers. Why not celebrate the joys of randomness? Nice change.

Celebrating art is big and getting bigger. The long Spring-Summer festival season is underway. We report on OzAsia, Darwin Festival, Launceston’s Junction Festival, look back to the European Summer’s Avignon Festival and Odin Teatret’s Holstebro Festuge in Denmark and preview the Melbourne International Arts Festival and the Proximity Festival of one-on-one short works.

Philip Brophy and Dan Edwards were impressed by films about music from Nepal, Britain, Bali and India in the documentary program of the Melbourne International Film Festival, surely countering psychologist Stephen Pinker’s view that, in terms of human evolution, music is now merely “auditory cheesecake for the mind.”

There’s plenty of reading for dance fanciers with reviews of new works in Perth, Townsville (a Dancenorth-Tasdance collaboration), Cairns, Parramatta, Adelaide (Leigh Warren and the Glass Operas), Dunedin (NZ) and Performance Space’s SCORE season, plus an interview with American dancer Michael Schumacher who will be in Perth in November for the MoveMe Improvisation Festival.
