By way of introduction ...

Welcome to a haven for like-minded lovers of literature, music, dance, theatre, visual arts, cinema and so much more. This website has been in the works for many months and it is with great anticipation that we at long last launch. 

It is especially a joy and an honour to kick things off with in-depth insights into, and reviews of the performances by, the revered Royal Ballet's first Australian tour -- in a Brisbane-exclusive season at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre -- in almost two decades. The company will perform two full-scale productions, both of which promise to be as extraordinary as the pedigree of the ensemble itself: Woolf Works, a suite of pieces based on the works of writer Virginia Woolf and a new production of The Winter's Tale.

It will be, I hope, emblematic of the sort of timely, interesting, erudite and passionate coverage for which Geek the Girl's creators want the site to be known. Thank you for taking our outstretched hand, standing on the edge of the cliff and jumping off. The waters below may be choppy, but beneath the surface there will be all manner of interesting previews, reviews, announcements and news items to be found.
