Sydney’s very choreographed men gives everyone something to look at … and then some

Rachel Oakley Contributor

By Rachel Oakley in New Events on Friday 1 August 2014

As part of the 19th Biennale of Sydney, artist Eglė Budvytytė is treating us to some rather bizarre performance art. In the mobile performance Choreography for the Running Male, a group of men jog a route through Sydney and carry out choreographed gestures related to emotions. Those emotions range from shame to seduction, and if you catch one of these performances, you’ll be both weirded out and amazed by what you’re seeing.

Summer doesn’t have to be all sun, sand, and surf. Sometimes it can be about death, fear, and goosebumps! A ghost tour of Sydney’s most haunted places may be just what you need to kick off a great summer. After all, a brush with death and ghastly spirits will surely get you in the mood for sunflowers and all of summer’s offerings. There are plenty of ghost tours around the city.

Superb cocktails and dining at Sydney’s Rabbit Hole Bar

Jonathan Leeming Contributor

By Jonathan Leeming in Cool Travel on Saturday 1 February 2014

The Rabbit Hole Bar on Elizabeth Street in Sydney’s CBD takes its name from the hole down which Alice plunges in Lewis Carroll’s famous book. Doug Laming, the 25-year-old manager and co-owner, chose this name not because of the bar’s location – tucked away below street level – but as a result of the weird yet wonderful culinary and alcoholic creations that can be found there. Specifically, the vast array of incredible molecular cocktails.

Like any form of art, taxidermy has its fair share of disturbingly wonderful pieces. One of the most disturbing, and most wonderful, pieces of taxidermy we’ve seen was made right in Sydney – multiple times over. Risto Todoroski makes bagpipes from deceased goats.

Looking back at Sydney’s incredible Rainbow Laneway

Cormack O'Connor Contributor

By Cormack O'Connor in Cool Travel on Thursday 2 January 2014

Sydney vs Melbourne. There are many arguments about which is the superior Australian city. As a Sydney local, the harbour city will always be home. However, I often find Melbourne an enticing and edgy mistress. Apart from the world-class coffee and abundance of galleries and record stores, Melbourne’s laneways are high up on the list […]

Bonobo to play the Sydney Opera House in early January

Lost At E Minor Contributor

By Lost At E Minor in New Events on Friday 13 December 2013

We love the lush, sample heavy sound of Bonobo, aka Simon Green (yes, we prefer Bonobo too), a pioneering UK producer renowned for his downbeat electronica. From his debut release, Terrapin, on the Tru Thoughts compilation When Shapes Join Together, right through to his most recent Ninja Tunes album, The North Borders, Bonobo’s lushly orchestrated productions are invariably complex and deeply melodic.
