Tiranossauro Rex numa escola na Austrália

segunda-feira, 4 de abril de 2011 - 17:04
postado por Younger Intercâmbio

Já pensou estar tranquilo na sua escola e, de repente, perceber que um tiranossauro rex invadiu o lugar? Alunos de uma escola na Austrália também nunca tinham imaginado a cena, mas foram surpreendidos quando estavam reunidos ouvindo sobre o espetáculo “Walking with dinosaurs” (“Andando com dinossauros”, em português).

É claro que tudo era uma grande brincadeira, com bonecos mecânicos que imitam os enormes animais jurássicos. Mesmo assim, muitos dos 350 estudantes que ficaram cara a cara com o falso filhote de tiranossauro levaram um susto e tanto. Assista abaixo ao vídeo da BBC que mostra o momento da visitinha surpresa.

A produção da empresa australiana Global Creatures está de volta à Austrália pela primeira vez desde que se transformou num enorme sucesso internacional faturando mais de US$ 350 milhões.

O espetáculo usa 20 dinossauros mecânicos, além de efeitos especiais e teatrais, para trazer à vida dez espécies diferentes, entre eles, um braquiossauro de 17 metros de altura e 11 de comprimento.

Quer conhecer mais sobre a história da Argentina?

Então vá assistir ao espetáculo “Evita”.

Estadão.com.br

O musical Evita, que estreia em São Paulo neste sábado, 26, começa contando o final da história do mito argentino. A primeira cena do espetáculo é ambientada em 26 de julho de 1952. Uma notícia bombástica interrompe uma sessão de cinema: Eva Perón está morta, aos 33 anos. Há comoção popular.

A partir daí o personagem de Che Guevara narra, por meio de flashbacks, a trajetória de Evita, desde a sua infância na cidade de Junín, até a campanha de reeleição do marido, Juan Péron, para presidência da Argentina, última da qual participou, antes de sua morte, causada por um câncer.

Evita, de autoria da dupla Tim Rice (letras) e Andrew Lloyd Webber (música), teve montagem totalmente criada e realizada no Brasil, integralmente cantada em português, com versão de Cláudio Botelho.

No papel principal, está a atriz Claudia Capovilla, que participou de musicais como Mamma Mia! (2010), Fantasma da Ópera (2008), Grease (2003), Les Misérables (2001) entre outros. O ator Daniel Boaventura, rosto conhecido na televisão e no cinema, interpreta Juan Perón. E Fred Silveira encarna Che Guevara. Além dos três principais, o elenco conta ainda com 45 atores e cantores.

Completam o time da produção dirigida por Jorge Takla, orquestra com 20 músicos, 350 figurinos de Fábio Namatame – parte deles inspirado nos trajes que Evita comprava na Maison Dior em Paris – coreografias de Tânia Nardini, cenários de Jorge Takla e Paulo Corrêa, iluminação de Ney Bonfante e regência e direção musical de Vânia Pajares.

Segundo Jorge Takla, a montagem é “uma leitura simplesmente humana, levando em conta que todos os seres humanos têm um lado de luz e outro de sombra – e como numa vela acesa, quanto maior a chama, maior a sombra”. Ele aponta as similaridades entre os personagens de Evita e do narrador, baseado em outro mito argentino, Che Guevara: “Evita e Che são, no fundo, muito parecidos. Ambos morreram muito jovens levando junto os sonhos e as esperanças de populações oprimidas e sofridas, tornando-se verdadeiros mitos, cada um a sua maneira, santificados e polêmicos.”

EVITA no TEATRO ALFA – SERVIÇO

Ideas Festival 2011

quarta-feira, 23 de março de 2011 - 17:03
postado por Younger Intercâmbio

Se você estiver na Austrália, e tem uma idéia muito boa, não deixe de participar!

Not just for nerds, the 2011 Ideas Festival is a conversation starter. Have a chat with a few hundred of your neighbours and be inspired by our guests as we dissect ideas old and new. As the 2011 Ideas Festival invites you to delve a little deeper into the themes of food futures, sustainability and happiness, things are bound to get a little bit deep and meaningful.

Originally an initiative of the Brisbane City Council and the Queensland Government, the Ideas Festival began in Queensland in 2001. The Festival was conceived to:

■Engage leading thinkers and practitioners in the exchange of ideas;

■Investigate key issues for the future of Australian society and particularly for the people of Brisbane and Queensland;

■Contribute to ongoing informed, vigorous and inclusive debate;

■To promote and present Brisbane and Queensland as stimulating and supporting ideas and innovation.

Subsequent festivals have been held in 2003, 2006 and 2009, with venues changing from the Brisbane Powerhouse in New Farm to most recently, the Cultural Centre at South Bank.

In 2009, the Ideas Festival was delivered by Arts Queensland as part of the Q150 celebrations and the Year of Creativity, with major sponsor Griffith University and featured a dedicated schools program for the first time.

The 2011 event will continue to develop the Ideas Festival audience. In partnership with the State Library of Queensland, the Festival will include a dedicated primary and secondary schools program, a Fringe Festival and three intensive residencies with government departments. Regional programming will also be strengthened, with public libraries in Rockhampton and Cloncurry hosting Festival projects and sessions.

Feliz St Patrick’s Day: Veja onde comemorar em Sydney!

quinta-feira, 17 de março de 2011 - 19:03
postado por Younger Intercâmbio

Having trouble finding the best place for those celebratory pints of Guinness and Irish folk tunes? Pick your pub for 17 March with the help of our guide to Sydney’s Irish bars.

PJ O’Brien’s

You’ll find PJ’s inside the beautiful old Grace hotel complex. They’re putting on a special 7am St Patrick’s Day feed with a hot Irish breakfast (the real thing, with black pudding and fried eggs) and a pint of Guinness or glass of wine. Did you know that in Ireland, Guinness is still made available to blood donors and stomach and intestinal post-operative patients as it’s known to be high in iron content? 57 King St, Sydney 2000. (02 9290 1811).

The Mercantile

Take in Monday morning on St Pat’s for the all-day breakfast and stay into the evenings and craic (geddit?) some floorboards dancing to the bush and Irish bands that’ll be playing all day. These guys aren’t so much about wearing their county on their sleeve in terms of décor, but the place is constantly packed with Irish people and the big all-wood bar is a stunner. 25–27 George St, Sydney 2000. (02 9247 3570).

Durty Nelly’s

Built to accommodate the ranks from the Victoria barracks, it’s been going since 1854. Another great one for trad Irish music, folks come from all over the shop with their fiddles, guitars, and tin whistles to play here and Sunday afternoons are the time to see it happen. They’ve got a great selection of beers on tap – Guinness (duh), Kronenbourg and Kilkenny to name a few – as well as bottled Magners cider and Irish soft drinks. 9-11 Glenmore Rd, Paddington 2021. (02 9360 4467).

PJ Gallagher’s

Though the main view is onto Victoria Road, there’s enough going on inside to keep you distracted. Prop up the rosewood bar with a pint or sink back with a single malt whisky. This St Pat’s kicks of with a roving fiddler, Irish dancing galore and $5.50 pints of Guinness all day. 195 Victoria Rd, Drummoyne 2047. (02 9181 1229).

Scruffy Murphy’s

There’ll be traditional Irish music on all day at the Scruffs this St Pat’s. Join the backpackers of Sydney for a jig and a pint at this infamous city pub. 43–49 Goulburn St, Sydney 2000. (02 9211 2002).

The Mean Fiddler

Who says there’s no such thing as a free lunch? Rouse Hill Irish pub, The Mean Fiddler will be offering St Paddy’s Day revellers a complimentary meal of sausages, bacon, eggs, tomatoes and toast with each purchase of an Irish coffee or Guinness. And just to get you in the celebratory mood, finish off the breakky with some green bubbly, champagne with Midori. Cnr Commercial and Windsor Rd, Rouse HIll, 2155 (02 9629 4811).

O’Malley’s Hotel

Soak up some of the Guinness and cider with a free Irish BBQ of pork sausages and irish pudding at O’Malley’s in Kings Cross. Good place to head to after the parade with free live music from 4pm. 228 William St, Woolloomooloo, 2011 (02 9357 2211).

Kelly’s on King

Head to Kelly’s On King after the parade for twelve hours of live music, a special Irish cafe menu and free giveaways. Starts from 12 noon. 285 King St, Newtown, 2042 (02 9565 2288).

St Patrick’s Day Parade

If the Mardi Gras parade wasn’t quite enough, join the Irish culture enthusiasts in the annual St Patrick’s Day Parade on Sunday 20 Mar. Finally an excuse to wear that fluro green outfit. Catch the parade from 12 noon on the corner of Bathurst and George Streets, Sydney. Sun 20 Mar
