Festival favours alleged

Benedict Andrews “misses terribly” the actors he has worked with in Australia. The 43-year-old Adelaide-born director and writer is now based in Reykjavik, with his partner, the Icelandic choreographer Margrét Bjarnadóttir.

So he is pleased that Marta Dusseldorp, who he directed as Queen Margaret in The War of the Roses for Sydney Theatre Company in 2009, sought the lead in his latest play, Gloria, which will open at Sydney’s Griffin theatre in 2016.

George Brandis met with a regional jazz festival after being lobbied by former Liberal MP Sophie Mirabella prompting accusations of using his arts portfolio to bolster her campaign to win back the seat of Indi.

The National Association for the Visual Arts (Nava) have questioned why Brandis met organisers of a jazz music festival in a meeting arranged by Mirabella, despite declining several other meeting requests with small-to-medium arts organisation delegates.
