Article by T Australia

T Australia’s seventeenth issue celebrates Journeys: from the sensory to the political to the more typical globetrotting variety. What we’ve found, amid the dazzling medley of contributions that came back, is that no matter what form they take, our most memorable journeys are often the ones that take us to new, or long-forgotten, parts of ourselves.

Our cover story (page 62), written by Emma Pegrum, profiles one of the Australia’s most formidable creative exports, the award-winning television, film and theatre star Sarah Snook. Photographed by Eric Michael Roy. and styled by Chloe Beene, the interview (“Playing Paradox”, page 62) delves into her journey — or should we say journeys — preparing to play no less than 26 roles in Sydney Theatre Company’s West End debut of its adaptation of “The Picture of Dorian Gray”. “Playing other people brings you closer to yourself,” says Snook.
