Steve Dow

Audience Member, Audrey contributor, Writer

Steve Dow is a Melbourne-born, Sydney-based arts writer across screen, live performance and visual arts.

He has a partner, handily also named Steven, and a Jack Russell-Maltese rescue named Oscar. He has freelanced for 18 years, and now concedes the internet and portable telephones will not be the CB radio of this century. He has taken up CrossFit in his middle years and is looking forward to acquiring skipping skills advanced beyond basic bounce.

He loves the sense of others’ lived experience he draws from theatre, the profound community engagement and poetry gleaned from first seeing Angels in America when it was performed by Melbourne Theatre Company at a theatre in Russell Street in 1993, a sublime experience he has sought to repeat seeing Tony Kushner’s two-part play in more recent years at Belvoir Street Theatre, 45 Downstairs, and the National Theatre Live production beamed into local cinemas.
