Last weekend saw the Cut & Paste: Micro-Festival launch the tenth issue of the Cut & Paste DVD. Kicking things off in the balmy sun at 4pm the Bakery was filled with Perth’s first Silent Micro-Cinema, a Hurben/Planet Clothing collaboration (which had sticky tape horns and limbs hanging from the rafters) and a plethora of vintage and retro game console and canvas hangings adorning the sea containers.

The Micro-Festival saw unique collaborations between Felicity Groom and Diger Rokwell, Naik, Zeke, Kit Pop and KZ the Boogieman from Cosmo Gets, in addition to 6s & 7s playing their album Choose the Sentinel Blooze from beginning to end, as the Panda Band did with their yet to be released album. Soulfister, Abbe May, Rex Monson, Tomas Ford, Mathas, Chris Wheeldon, Gemma Pike and the Cut & Paste Sound System were all on hand to round out the musical entertainment.

The man with his stills camera in hand, Bradley Serls was there to grab everyone in their Micro-Festoval festivities… See if you’re featured in the gallery!

TOMAS FORDS // DISCO BUNKER

Disco-Bunker-Poster--Final-Draft

You’ve seen, or at least heard about, Tomás Ford. He’s the showman who plays electro to punk kids, puts on confronting cabarets, dances on every conceivable surface and has as much fun as he can with audiences.

Even if you took in his controversial One Night Stand show from back in 2007, his runaway hit Artrage Festival show Tomás Ford vs The Audience in 2006 or any of his appearances at pubs or festivals around the country, this is still so far on the next level from those shows as to be unrecognisably awe inspiring. You still haven’t seen him as liberated as he is in this show.

Ford’s art is manipulating audiences and harnessing chaos. It’s one thing to see him in a pub or at a festival, but there’s only so much he can do in those spaces; when you put him in a theatre, everything is maxxed out. He has more control. He can tailor the show to the space. For this show, we’re talking about new costumes, video work, a unique performance environment and a series of happenings that may never happen again.

If you want to see Tomás Ford at his best, you’ve only got one night to do it.

That night is Saturday February 27 at The Astor Theatre on Beaufort Street in Mount Lawley.
