Meaty conversation

This Sunday The Hayloft Project is hosting a panel on “the art of direction” with some of Melbourne’s leading directors. Mediated by your humble blogger, the panel features 2008 Green Room Award-winning director Mary Sitarenos from Liminal Theatre, Daniel Schlusser (Peer Gynt), Hayloft’s Artistic Director Simon Stone (Platonov), Mark Winter (The Black Lung) and Benedict Hardie (3xSisters). Rather than a discussion of 3xSisters, which has generated a long and passionate debate here, this conversation is intended to throw some illumination on what it is directors do.

It's at 1.30pm on Sunday May 10 in the Meat Market at 5 Blackwood St, North Melbourne, and admission is free.

Interesting....All VCA alumni, aren't they? The school will be chuffed.

Sounds like a hoot!

Hopefully the 'meaty conversation' will turn into a good, chunky beef!

Though it would be rather poultry and fowl if one of the contributors turned chicken and ducked the event.

I don't think the VCA-heavy element was so much intentional - others were asked - as a reflection of independent theatre in Melbourne...

And TimT, calm down. You're getting in a right stew.

I think they're all ready to talk turkey.

What about rissoles?

Everyone leaves out the rissoles...

Well, come on!

How was the meat?

Meaty! It was an excellent and generous event, and I thought fascinating.

More report tomorrow when I feel better, but anyone who was there and wants to comment is very welcome.
