THE ARTS Archives - The Creative Issue - News for Creatives
The Arts is our first love.
It’s time to put your hands on your hips and pull your knees in tight, because the Rocky Horror Show hits Brisbane in January. Richard O’Brien’s non-stop party musical is frothing with timeless classics and cheeky moments bound to have audiences pelvic thrusting in the aisles.
On Saturday, October 14th, The Creative Issue had the pleasure of attending Migos‘ concert at Riverstage. The Georgia group behind hits like Bad and Bougee and Get Right Witcha were supported by Atlanta musician, 6LACK.
Sven Ratzke hit the Spiegeltent stage on Tuesday and Wednesday night last week as part of the Brisbane Festival, bringing to life the legend, David Bowie, in his cabaret show Starman. He paid tribute to Bowie’s hits, embodied his many personas and took command of an audience slightly unsure of what to expect.
“It is terrifying… the world closes down to this pin prick and then there is like this beeeeep ringing in your ears. The first time I did it I remember thinking I was going to vomit and shit myself at the same time… but it is such a rush and I didn’t die so I went back.”
The Queensland Poetry Festival hits our city in August with a plethora of poems, spoken word and comedy. Breaking us out of our everyday monotony with the impact of Anisa Nandaula’s words, the festival this year has the theme of Distant Voices. Voices from across the globe cut through the strata of society to highlight social issues from racism to inequality.
