From Wollongong

Review:
“We came especially for the crochet coral reef. I think it’s cool – it’s really original and different. Like, ‘What are you doing this weekend?’ I’m going to crochet a coral reef’ [laughs]”

Highlights:
“Were pretty excited about the hyperbolic factor! I love the word hyperbolic” says Hannah.

“I like the beach, I’m studying ecology, so I appreciate all the different forms of coral people have made,” Leesa says. “It’s pretty amazing what you can do with one hook. Like this was, this was a full ball of wool. Crocheting is pretty addictive.”

Hannah: “This was a shark’s egg that has turned blue from being in the sea too long.” [Shows crochet piece]

Leesa: “I don’t know what this is… it’s a folios coral – that means leaf-like.”

From: “I’m part of Circus WOW and the Wollongong Roller Derby.”

Review:
“Natalie is brilliant, she’s so beautiful. It’s really good to see her perform to live music. Nat actually does a really good job at improvising. Last year she did an improv performace to a piano player – it was really beautiful, a really vibrant and wild cabaret. Today is a  a nice, more gentle performance. It’s lovely.

Review:
“The circus act was good.

Highlight:
“My favourite bit was when the performers were jumping over the rope. It was pretty funny when they were pushing each other. I think I would like to be in the circus one day.”
