Next week we'll proudly launch our brand new website, a home not only to informed and constructive reviewing but also to video, sound, music and other works for you to experience, whether on computer, tablet or phone, with each accompanied by a critical appreciation. As well, we're reinvigorating RealTime Traveller and RealTime TV, commissioning new video works for our Gallery and video essays about diverse art practices, highlighting video art by emerging artists in Critical Video, and digging into RealTime's treasurehouse of review for the revelatory Deep Archive. Next week's RealTime will take you straight to the new site. In the meantime, enjoy this edition in which the body is the vehicle for self-examination, historical reflection and new dance, and the subject of a visual artist's probing gaze.
Keith, Virginia & Lauren
JACK FERVER & PERSONA         BalletLab surges into the future with a home of its own and as a presenter, writes Andrew Fuhrmann, offers a powerfully complex satirical dance theatre performance from New York artist Jack Ferver.
Drill Hall
A SUBTLE EXCAVATION     In Melbourne's The Drill Hall, built in 1937, Jude Walton conjures with dance and music a disappearing past—a space haunted by wartime loss, grief and fragile recollection.
ANGELICA MESITI RECODES VIDEO ART     In Angelica Mesiti’s Relay League, Lauren Carroll Harris sees the artist "finding new ways to encompass other disciplines, like dance and music, while retaining what’s unique about video art."
Resonant bodies
RESONANT BODIES: VOICES MATTER       Zoe Barker attends the Resonant Bodies Festival, encountering a rich diversity of characterful voices, techniques and performance styles in a field too rarely celebrated.
New works from Melbourne's Paea Leach and dancers from Townsville's Dancenorth engaged Bernadette Ashley with their inventiveness and the challenges they presented this highly skilled company.
Nola Farman and various personae have been "stealthily upping the neo-Fluxus quotient in the seaside suburb of Clovelly" with, among other things, Flight, an exhibition with a sense of the absurd, writes Keri Glastonbury.
Moscow Ensemble
BEAUTIFUL FRAGMENTS         Jonathan W Marshall enjoys the rigorously precise playing of the Moscow Contemporary Music Ensemble in a program of predominantly Russian compositions that transcend easy labelling.
Mr Burns opens this week at Sydney's Belvoir, so we're re-running Ben Brooker's welcoming review of the Adelaide premiere of this incisively funny post-apocalypse American play.
