Noel Coward comes to Mardi Gras and artist, Melissa Mladin talks to Arts Monday
After receiving ‘gay conversion therapy’ shock treatment as a young man, Tim McKew’s career on the stage intensified and became more political.
He talks to Paul about his long career as an anarchic cabaret and performance artist that has taken him from the punk scene in Berlin to underground gay venues in Shanghai.
He is coming to Sydney to perform for Mardi Gras in two separate shows.
Firstly he is giving a talk entitled THOU SHALT NOT! [and so I DID! ] at the State Library of NSW as part of the Coming out in the 70s exhibition on Saturday 27 February at 7pm. You can find more info and tickets here.
And in his other persona, Tim McKew Toasts Noel Coward at Claire’s Kitchen at le Salon at 35 Oxford St Surry Hills. Patrons can enjoy a 3 course supper and a Coward’s satirical songs recreated by this veteran performer. There are 2 shows on Tuesday 23 and Wednesday 24 February.
And Anthony talks to abstract expressionist artist (or should that be abstract impressionist) Melissa Mladin about life, art, painting, evolution and influences, esoteric thought and her latest body of work.
After a successful sale and exhibition of works at Twenty Twenty Six Gallery in December, Melissa returns to the gallery in its group exhibition, and will be featured again in March with a brand new body of work.
Arts Monday 22 February 10.30-12.00
