Gonna be posting mostly photos here, beginning with the obligatory plane shots departing NZ:

Marlborough Sounds, NZ

From here it’s all Melbourne. Every night before the show we’d have to hang in the alleyway outside the venue waiting for the other show to finish. One night I struck up a conversation outside with the venue manager who thought I was a homeless guy and asked if I was sleeping rough! Fair call.

This is Stella ‘the grand-daughter’ and Joe ‘the pizza guy’ listening to Arj Barker‘s set from the cheap seats outside the Lithuanian Club:

Two weeks in Australia has flown by in what feels like no time at all and the Melbourne Fringe season of The Basement Tapes is now complete!

We had a great response from audiences here, receiving a nomination for best performance at the festival, moving numerous people to tears and scaring many more!

As one reviewer put it, “the story really burrows its way into your mind and then begins to play tricks on you in a truly terrifying theatrical experience.“ Another called it “an intriguing – at times, frightening – piece of theatre that’s expertly delivered.”

A huge thankyou to everyone who has supported this project – and to Stella Reid, Jason Longstaff, Jane Yonge and Joe Wright for being the coolest colleagues and travel buddies!

I’m lucky to be hanging back for another couple weeks to play some shows (as I.Ryoko) and immerse myself in the incredible space that is Magnet.

More to follow!
