Rafael Bonachela enters his 10th year at the helm of the Sydney Dance Company as a proud Spanish-born Australian citizen. He pledged his allegiance in August, just in time to get on the electoral roll and vote in the marriage equality survey. Bonachela is a staunch "yes" campaigner. He marched in the Marriage Equality rally in Sydney and lit up the stage with "VOTE YES" during the curtain calls for last week's performances of his work, 2 One Another at the Roslyn Packer Theatre.
What is it like performing to a theatre audience from behind a glass wall? An audience you can't see or very often hear? Actor Caroline Brazier, the star of the Sydney Theatre Company's production of Moira Buffini's black comedy Dinner, has been working behind one for more than a month and it has taken some getting used to. "Theatre is like a grand scale seduction, an agreement between performer and audience," says Brazier.
Family has been on actor Anita Hegh's mind a lot of late. It's unavoidable, she says, when you are working on French dramatist Florian Zeller's play The Father. "My own father passed away after being very ill in his last few years, so there are issues in the play that are very present for me," says Hegh, who plays Anne, daughter of Andre (played by John Bell), an elderly, increasingly frail man losing his grip on reality.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
