Greta Garbo in Wild Orchids (1929)
my one regret in life is that I am not someone else
Fight Club (USA - Germany, 1999)
"I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me, too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it’s true I’m here, and I’m just as strange as you." - Frida Kahlo
Screamin’ Jay Hawkins…
That haunting voodoo jazz.
If ya don’t know, now ya know, baby.
If you peeps don’t know who Screamin’ Jay Hawkins is, I will give you a disappointed look. A fond disappointed look, because I still like you, but.

ARCHIVE: CATE BLANCHETT
For over two decades, Cate Blanchett has had a rich and varied relationship with Sydney Theatre Company. Her debut with STC in Oleanna was her first major role out of acting school; fifteen years later, she would become the company’s Co Artistic Director with her husband Andrew Upton. She has either directed or performed in 13 STC productions and overseen 5 seasons as Co Artistic Director. Of course, her career, influence and renown reach well beyond Sydney’s stages but, with her imminent return in The Present, what better time to celebrate some of her iconic STC roles.
