With excellent crowd numbers, some very pleasant weather conditions and an outstanding and diverse line-up that delivered a host of excellent performances, this may very well have been the best WOMADelaide in the event’s history.
Despite the unnecessary annoyance, the food service was efficient, the meals were remarkable and the atmosphere and setting were perfection.
The good times continued into Day 3 of WOMADelaide, with a diverse program of inspiring and energetic acts, including a few surprises.
Day two of WOMADelaide confirmed the inkling provided by day one, that this was going to be one of the best line-ups the Festival has ever seen.
With a singer-songwriter focus to the night’s programming, the steadily building crowd were presented with the perfect opportunity to kick back after the working week and soak up the unique chilled vibe of this event.
In every aspect of the performance, elements of the old and new are seamlessly brought together.
Sequins, sass, shimmying and ghetto hip hop; not your usual Monday night fare, however when it comes to Hans the German (Matt Gilbertson), anything goes.
Velvet is smooth, sexy, luscious, exciting, heartwarming and damn good fun.
If you prefer films that are characterised by restraint, subtlety, and realism, then Three Hearts may not be to your taste…
From the moment you are presented with your black or white eye mask, offered beef jerky with ant sauce served out of a cow skull, it’s a journey of surprises that keeps you guessing.
