THEATRE REVIEW: Monash Shakespeare Company’s “Twelfth Night”

EDITOR’S NOTE: The editorial staff at Radio Monash would like to make it clear that the writer of this article was involved, in some capacity, with the pre-production of the musical. Though we trust that this does not influence the writers judgement, the team at Radio Monash feels as though this statement is needed for the sake of transparency and proper ethics.

William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night is a classic tale of romance, scheming and mistaken identity. Twins Viola and Sebastian are separated in a shipwreck, both assuming the other to be dead. Viola dresses up as a boy and falls in love with Duke Orsino, who is in love with Olivia, who, thinking she is a man, falls in love with Viola.

The Monash Shakespeare Company’s production of the bard’s story was brave and creative. While it had some truly hilarious moments of physical comedy, homage to the text felt lacking at times. Although ultimately entertaining, many aspects of the performance didn’t quite “fadge.”

One may think that the story of Twelfth Night is complicated enough as is, which is possibly why the slightly misguided choice to introduce the concept of time travel into the narrative just didn’t work. Aside from making a play which is already difficult to follow at best of times more complicated, the set itself was poorly designed. The large time machine in the centre of the stage took up a lot of space, rendering a large part of the small performance area unusable. Considering the time machine was only used three times throughout the show, the restrictions its presence imposed makes it difficult to justify. Read more …

PODCAST: CoolOff Zone S02E05

Hosted by Lola and Helen.

This Episode appreciates the uniqueness of songs written in other languages. We compiled a list of songs in Languages other than English. It was fun because we thought that even if we could not understand what the songs meant, we were able to connect to it in some kind of way.
This reveals that Music can reach out to people no matter the language or culture.

I hope you enjoy the list of songs.

PODCAST: Episode 4 – In the Nick of time

This week’s episode wasn’t all fun and games as my new business partner, Nick Pederson, came into the studio to make business decisions. Nick and I teamed up to disrupt the huge industry of University Shuttle Bus Timetabling and Nick was so impressed with me during the interview he promised me 100% of profits from our new lucrative app.  When not making big corporate decisions Nick and Jamie discussed their shared love of comedy podcasts. We also explored how Nick’s employment with a not-for-profit company made him revaluate his university studies and career goals. Nick also explains how his parents were accepting of his desires to get into the start-up industry thanks to their past business of squash court ownership. Lastly Nick, a self-confessed modern-pentathlon expert, and I try to come up with an even better and more varied sport for the Olympics.

An open letter to Network 10

Why I believe they should either be taxed more, or engage much more in CSR, if they intend to profit off this season of the Bachelor.

 

Dear Network 10 management,

 

On episode 10 of the Bachelor, I watched as Richie and Alex had a single date based around the idea of ‘chocolate’. Now, for once, I shan’t make it a priority to critique the date or the women or the outfits as per usual. Today, my issue is that of the abuse of chocolate propagated by this bachelor Richie Strahan, by the ditz of a date of his, Alex, and by the colossally lousy asshats producing this show.

 

Why am I calling them lousy asshats today? Because they let this pair of morons waste hundreds of millilitres of chocolate on ‘cutesiness’ and a chocolate bath.

It’s A Rap – 19.08.2016. “Syria, Music, Youtube and more”

Hi guys! This week, Peggie couldn’t make it to her show so Sahana and Sayu took over. Sahana and Sayu were accompanied by Nathan and Mr. Krabs (Yes, that is his name). So, they talked about Youtube, the tragedy in Syria and had some friendly banter. We found out that Mr. Krabs has 250 followers on tumblr (Kudos on that!). We had 2 callers (Yay us!), one of which was a prank caller (someone from our own station at that!). It was a lot of fun! Listen to know more! :)
