Wrestling With My Regrets by Louis Spencer
What does a life lost to professional wrestling look like? Louis is the ultimate super fan, knows more about wrestling than anyone in town, but now wonders what could have been accomplished without it.
Mother of Compost by Noemie Huttner-Koros
A gooey, camp and fierce subversion of family portraits, birthing classes, baby showers, evolutionary biology and ‘going forth and procreating’. In an ecologically and politically precarious world, how can we harness the energy of nurturing and care-giving to radically rethink who and what we are parents and offspring to? Dearest compost, I am your mother and I am your child.
Lemon by Amelia Sagrabb
Lemon or woman? Squish, drip and wring. Lemon is an experimental dance-theatre piece exploring the multiplicity and complexity of sensuality. Reimagined as a solo, this improvised work will transport you to a new lemony world tinged with confusion, sourness and beauty.
Rupert Murdoch and the Jellyfish Girl by Sally Davies
A fifteen-minute bulletin into the world of Australia’s biggest media mogul, and the Perth independent theatre-maker who is determined to take him down. Looking at the place of news and media in Australia, this is investigative journalism in its most ridiculous form.
A Profound Conversion of the Heart by Phoebe Sullivan
“I’m not a perfect person” – Hoobastank.
Apologies, ice baths, the performance of a lifetime; and the reason is you.
