Hannah Gadsby’s Oz

http://www.abc.net.au/arts/HannahsOz/

I’ve just watched the first episode of this series (on ABC1 Tues, 10:00pm). I’m going to have to watch it quite a few more times – it speaks so directly to some of my current reading and thinking for the OCA course. I hadn’t heard the phrase “scar tissue of history” before and it resonates – except so much of my concern isn’t history, it’s what’s happening today.

Interesting to see the different perspective / emphasis to the 3 part series presented by Edmund Capon last year (http://www.abc.net.au/arts/artofaustralia/default.htm).

Some of the artists included in Hannah’s episode 1:
