We’ll be brief. There’s so much weird and wonderful reading in this E-dition, taking you from the Darwin Festival to Australia’s newest dance festival, Salamanca Moves (UK artist Liz Aggiss above) in Hobart, from Keith Armstrong’s imaginary ecologies to Tim Darbyshire’s human stress-test, from Toshiki Okada’s critical paean to baseball in the OzAsia Festival to ELISION ensemble’s celebratory exhibition in Melbourne and performances in Bendigo and Sydney Chamber Opera’s revelatory take on Dostoevsky. Our ongoing Arts Education feature focuses this week on Adelaide Central School of Art. While art revels in nuance, complexity and passion, the angry forces of absolutism in the new federal parliament line up to do their worst. It’s time to care. We’re off to the Bendigo International Festival of Exploratory Music—follow us on Partial Durations—and will be back with you on 14 September. Keith and Virginia
