Falling in love with Frida – Caroline Bowditch #FridaKahlo #Spiegeltent [#geekgirl]

Falling in love with Frida

Falling in love with Frida is an intimate and enticing performance that explores the life, loves and legacy of painter Frida Kahlo (1907-1954).

Winner of the prestigious Herald Angel Award at the 2014 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Falling in love with Frida is a reclaiming of a disabled artist, a love like obsession, and an enquiry into how we shape what we are remembered for and how much can we really control others memories of us. It exposes many little-known facts about the infamous woman, remembered for her art. Where affinities and parallels are drawn, happy distractions are employed and a tale of ‘the great concealer’ is skillfully revealed by and through powerful yet fragile bodies.

Date: 18 Mar 2016 – 19 Mar 2016 Time: Fri & Sat 8pm and Sat 3pm

Tickets are now on sale for Falling in love with Frida at the Spiegeltent! #Melbourne

The #Occult Universe of #DavidBowie and #Blackstar [#geekgirl]

David Bowie Blackstar

In the wake of David Bowie’s death, his last album, “Blackstar”, is his swan song, an enigmatic conclusion to a career punctuated by otherworldly alter-egos and esoteric symbolism. We’ll look at the meaning of “Blackstar” in the context of David Bowie’s career.

Very few artists can boast the longevity of David Bowie in the music industry, as his career spanned over five decades and produced 28 albums. Throughout the decades, Bowie migrated from one musical genre to another, and even from one persona to another, but a constant remained: He was surrounded by an otherworldly aura.

Through his work, Bowie turned himself into a musical ‘ascended master’, a Gnostic Christ-like figure who achieved a high level of illumination and who sought to communicate a cryptic message to humanity. While many of Bowie’s eccentricities could be attributed to drugs and rock and roll, one cannot paint a complete picture of this artist without mentioning his most enduring obsession: Western occultism.
