NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH LALLY KATZ ANALYSIS

Maybe other KJ blog-readers recall her Blanche – treading with delicate , trembling feet on horrific ground, or saw her as Louis Nowra’s ‘Precious Woman’ , rising up in defiance of authority,the surprise at the change within herself etched on her tragic brow. It is probably another mark of RN’s talent that one notices an occasional thinness in the writing in the scenes that don’t involve Ana – eg between Katherine and her friend Ken. As does Ms Edwards. I wrote in simple wonder as to the difference of approach that these two actresses may have to the role and the thrill it might be to compare and contrast the result.. It is an expensive undertaking. She has earned it, knowing that this is probably the first paying gig of those three ventures. If you look carefully at the casting of productions you will see that certain actors are invited by certain directors. Isn’t it nice to see mainstream theatre branching out from their “trusted names” I’m tired of STC and Belvoir being a closed shop to new ideas in terms of casting.

I think about my life as a theatre-goer in Sydney, and wonder if Robyn Nevin is the actress I have seen more often than any other. It is a tough life to choose to work in the theatre no matter what discipline. There’s wonderful work elsewhere in the company.. Clearly Robyn Nevin has exceptional craft honed over many years, but it’s such a conservative piece of work – a vehicle for RN. It could be any other actress of a similar age. Newer Post Older Post Home. My long observation is talent, skills, hard work,luck and being in the right place at the right time will, possibly, give the artist the break — but there are in Sydney, hundreds of actors and only so many jobs.

Hi Kevin, Thanks for a thoughtful review. If the companies and the union could find some way to help the repertoire to be larger in cast size, then, we may see a more diverse range of player. If only fussy chatty Girlie Pogson from Sarsaparilla another unique creation from the Robyn Nevin troupe could move in next door to Ana Brajovik. The risks need to be limited.

Thursday, August 4, Neighbourhood Watch. Risk taking is not encouraged. It is a tough life, the role of the actor.

I wonder less at what Sydney does to Melbourne talent than what the ‘mainstage’ does in flattening out the idiosyncratic and ‘surreal’ aspects of a very individual talent. I also believe, and I have no direct insight into the workings of either company, that the casting is the perogative of the Director of each production and I am sure that it is they and not the company that has the real persuasion as to which actor is invited to work with them.

Now she has given us this resilientprickly survivor of twentieth century upheavals, an emigre with thick accent and packed agenda, a non-stop toiler and no-nonsense bargainer. In so many different kinds of play – be it Restoration Comedy or Shakespearean tragedybe it in the modern drawing room world of David Williamson or the suburban cavalcade of Patrick White’s Sarsaparilla,she is authoritative and magnetic and always memorable.

Last year she was a magnificent Mary Tyrone, embodying the quality of coquettish complaisance that serves as a cover for Mary’s aching need and fevered calculationand I watched and at the same time remembered other wonderful performances in this roleand thought: I found it charming and a benign way of passing a couple of hours.

To work in the Arts. I hope I have expressed some satisfactory response to your concerned query. Newer Post Older Post Home.

I also agree with you about the overall eurocentrism of most writing for the kxtz. Clearly Robyn Nevin has exceptional craft honed over many years, but it’s such a conservative piece of work – a vehicle for RN. Thank the deity of your choice for DV8 which I saw directly afterwards.

Wouldn’t you like to see another Hedda Gabler, Blanche or Yeliena to appear, before the memory of Ms Blanchett disappears, to be able to contrast and compare the artist’s decisions and not just re-acquaint oneself with the narrative of the play again. As does Mr Armfield. And with every memory I smiled,and wished that I could see once more the performance that had created these warm sensations for me.

It is an expensive undertaking. Laly Katz is to be thanked for supplying a script that has given Ms Nevin once more an opportunity to delve into the treasure chest of her creativity.

If you look carefully at the casting of productions kztz will see that certain actors are invited by certain directors. Why compare her to Yael Stone? It could be any other actress of a similar age.

I expected much more from this production. Posted by Editor at I think about my life as a theatre-goer in Sydney, and wonder if Robyn Nevin is the actress I have seen more often than any other. I could name many others.

My long observation is talent, skills, hard work,luck and being in the right place at the right time will, possibly, give the artist the break — but there are in Sydney, hundreds of actors and only so many jobs. Megan Holloway had a relaxed and delightful presence ; Ian Meadows was convincing even when required to switch to a Hungarian accent; Heather Mitchell gave cool authority to her portrayal of a doctor -and ten seconds later she had a sad and trembling grace as Ana’s ill neighbour.

Iain Sinclair for instance has a core team of fellow artists that he finds convenient to work with, both for his Co-Op work and to his recent opportunities at the STC.

Yael Stone came immediately to my mind, when I was writing, because of the reasons I mentioned: A very European experience, I admit, and one that never happens much here, if ever. She has earned it, knowing that this is probably the first paying gig of those three ventures. Mr Jackson, do you have any opinions over the “club” atmosphere of theatre companies? Doesn’t the talented Ms Stone already have a monopoly over young women roles in her age groups?

As does Ms Lewis. Set and Costume, Lighting and Sound design, for instance, and see the names that are very regular in the theatre programs. There’s wonderful work elsewhere in the company. Ms Stone has not been on the Belvoir lallyy since Look at the supporting creatives e.
