20 years ago this month, CX (then Connections) covered the greatest show on Earth, conceived, designed, and executed by Australian crew. From Julius Grafton's report:
"Genius was thick on the ground at Stadium Australia. Even the thing that momentarily stalled, the cauldron, astounded.
We needed heroes, and now we have them. This should be a time when the Australian trait of cutting down the tall poppy is buried.
When talk turned to the Olympics at ENTECH back in March, we heard a few dark pathetic and miserable souls commenting snidely that these companies couldn’t possibly do a show like this.
These people live in a different Australia.
The most interesting thing of all is that it’s very unlikely anyone will ever stage a show so large again."
