Skye Gellmann is an Australian Artist & Circusmaker.

Company of Rogues has a discount offer to readers of Sydney Arts Guide.  Get BEDLAM: SILLY SEASON  adult tickets for just $25.  The show is only on for one night so get in quick.

Showcasing new and emerging Sydney performers alongside the city’s coolest established artists, this is the Christmas party you always wished for. Bedlam Silly Season will be a madcap multi-genre kringle-themed cabaret blending burlesque, music and song with cutting edge comedy and seriously sizzling performance art.

THE BEDLAM CABARET is a relatively new initiative from Company of Rogues that has come about from our experience as an emerging theatre and entertainment producer. Our goal is to create a space where new and emerging artists from across Sydney can share the stage with established performers, helping to create new networks across genres and valuable opportunities for artists to learn from each other.

Every cabaret promises to be truly multi-genre in its curation. We held our first Bedlam in July as a fundraiser for one of our productions but found those involved were keen to see it return.

The Silly Season Edition tomorrow (Thursday 7th December)  will be the first of three planned Bedlams, with the next in the Mardi Gras Festival, and another around Easter 2018. Each show promises to get bigger and better.

Ballina Gee (Opera), Skye Gellmann (Circus), Nitin Vengurlekar (Comedy), Sophie deLightful (Cabaret), Alison Bennett (Cabaret), Mama La Roux (Burlesque), and Alistair Toogood (Vocalist).

When: 7th December 2017, 7pm for 8pm showtime.
Where: Red Rattler, 6 Faversham Street, Marrickville New South Wales 2204

One of the great achievements that writers accomplish is in the area of non-fiction, in their ability to bring people and their stories to life, so that they can be shared with everyone.

For many years Melbourne writer and playwright Gina Schien has wanted to her late brother’s story – his battle with schizophrenia which saw him in the end take his own life.

The result is her play Morgan  Stern which received its premiere production at Blood Moon in a production directed by Goldele Rayment.

It was really hard to hold back the tears as we watched Morgan’s painful, bizarre, brilliant story unfold in a very moving solo performance by Graeme Rhodes who played a number of  different characters as well as Morgan.

There was a haunting line in the play which bears repetition – ‘We can only guess at the hurt we cause. We are all a foreign language language to each other.’

The Company of Rogues and Blood Moon Theatre’s production of Gina Schien’s MORGAN STERN had only a too brief season at the Blood Moon Theatre between the 25th November and the 3rd December.
