Copper Cow Coffee: Vietnamese Pour-Over Goes Global

by David Kaye @ Vietcetera

Like her Copper Cow Coffee, Debbie Wei Mullan is a mix of Asian and American. She was raised in San Francisco by her Chinese-Vietnamese mother and American father, and although they assimilated into American culture, growing up, her mom’s kitchen was filled with the pungent aromas and intense flavors of Vietnamese and Chinese home-cooking. That […]

An Interview with Beverley Wang: It’s Not A Race

by Tanya Ali @ Peril magazine

It’s no secret that in Australia, it can often be difficult to candidly speak about race – especially if you’re not white. Enter ABC Radio National producer Beverley Wang, who in May 2017 launched It’s Not A Race, alongside a fabulous team. With two seasons officially under its belt, It’s Not A Race has facilitated incredible conversations about topics that are rarely spoken on openly in the Australian media. Placing PoC voices at the forefront, It’s Not A Race is intelligent, relatable, educative, challenging and heartwarming in equal measures. In celebration of the release of the season two finale, which was recorded live in Melbourne, we are really excited to publish our chat with Beverley Wang about all things pod, and beyond.

Performing Ritual

by Nithya Nagarajan @ Peril magazine

This article is written by the curator in conversation with the curated for the upcoming triple-bill of aural, visual and poetic explorations of ritual in ‘Resonant Lines’ presented by the National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA) Melbourne and Multicultural Arts Victoria for Mapping Melbourne 2017. The triple-bill is birthed out of a collaboration between artists from South Asian and Euro-Australian backgrounds. Resonant lines is performed by Aarti Jadu, Nithya Iyer, Luna-Mrozik Gawler, Devika Bilimoria, Sudeep Lingamneni and Andrew McLaughlin. Ritual is a loaded term encompassing a pastiche of the sacred, the secular and the profane. The reading of ritual through the indicators of structure, process, experience, function, ideology and frame enable the act of multi-sensorial meaning-making. Performative interventions of ritual provide fissures by creating a liminal space – one that is fluid and transitory, a state of in-betweenness. Dancer and movement artist Nithya Iyer notes that the very act of Read More »

Why we love some Asian cuisines and not others - Peril magazine


Peril magazine

Have you ever wondered why you can go pretty much anywhere in Australia and find Italian food, Chinese food, and probably Thai and Indian as well? Yet if you were looking for Filipino food, Serbian food or Tanzanian food you would have a hard time of it, even in one of the major cities. If you were looking for a simple answer to this question, you might just say that that the cream rises to the top, as it were. In other words, Filipino or Serbian cuisine is not particularly good, while Italian and Chinese cuisine is clearly very good. Now, not having eaten a great deal of Filipino or Serbian food, I will refrain from commenting. But perhaps that is too simple. For example, the popularity of Thai cuisine has gone through the roof over the last few decades, not just here but worldwide. But go back to 1980 Read More »

Recovering the Indian-Aboriginal connection: Serpent Dreaming Women

by Nithya Iyer @ Peril magazine

On the evening of Wednesday 6th of December 2017, the Bunjilaka Aboriginal Cultural Centre at Melbourne Museum hosted Serpent Dreaming Women – a poetic storytelling experience bringing together Indigenous Australian and Indian creative practice. Under the artistic direction of academic, performer and choreographer Dr. Priya Srinivasan, Serpent Dream Women was developed in collaboration with esteemed Gundijtmara women, creative cultural artist Vicki Couzens, visual artist/storyteller Gina Bundle, and dancer/Aboriginal activist Yaraan Bundle, as well as Melbourne-based Indian Carnatic singer Uthra Vijay, and the internationally renowned Bharatanatyam dancer Priyadarshini Govind from India. Drawing on historical research, personal stories and ancestral mythologies, the roving performance piece lead an audience of approximately 150 through the various spaces of the Bunjilaka Aboriginal Cultural Centre at Melbourne Museum. The viewers, welcomed by Yaraan Bundle with a message to listen—not speak—were anointed with a spot of ochre on the chin to signify their role. A small but Read More »

Review: VIVID

by Mindy Gill @ Peril magazine

Award-winning author and playwright Hoa Pham’s new production, VIVID, centres around Khanh (Chi Nguyen), a Vietnamese-Australian woman with schizophrenia. Khanh sees visions of her grandmother, her Bà (Moni Lai Storz), who guides and comforts her ‘from the other shore’. When we first meet Khanh she is in hospital, suffering from strong feelings of paranoia and delusion. She has visions of refugees being tortured in Australia’s off-shore detention centres, and believes that she and her family will be detained and sent back to Vietnam. She repeatedly tells her boyfriend, Khoi (Jamie Vu), that she can’t separate reality from the imagined. ‘If I think about it, it becomes real to me,’ she says. The chemistry between the actors is tangible, particularly between Nguyen and her nurse, Craig, played by Joshua Monaghan. Storz in particular shines onstage, providing improvised moments of comic relief. Khanh tells Khoi that she is going to protest at the Read More »
