Like all fashion-conscious wakes, grieving friends and family are encouraged to dress appropriately. If you’re unprepared, fret not. These pillbox-hat-with-veil numbers will be provided.
Emily Sexton, the new (and first female) artistic director for Next Wave, demure and respectful at this Midsumma show.

Irresistible aside: Amaryah’s ensemble reminds me of Jem, one of my favourite TV series as a child.

Her catchphrase ‘Showtime, Synergy’ was probably something that taunted me into showbiz.
