The Girl/ The Woman
June 28 - July 7, 2018
Corner market and Church Street, Parramatta NSW 2150
DescriptionI'm a polite feminist.
I'm a liar.
I'm a girl and a woman.
I'm Beyonce on a bad day.
I'm exotic. Apparently.
I can never understand Aljazeera.
I found a love in a hopeless place - he just doesn't know it yet.
My mother is waiting.
Forget everything you know about me.
Come over for a visit.
Just stay calm at all times.
Don't worry, you'll be fine.
The Girl trips over her sexuality and lands on her mother's traditions. She has many questions she's not allowed to ask. She turns to her best friend and enabler - the Internet.
Her mother has buried herself deep in her home to find refuge from judging eyes and and an ever-changing world.
Twelve years in the making, wild and funny until it's not, THE GIRL / THE WOMAN is an exhilarating collision of body and mind, desire and tradition, language and visionary theatricality.
This is not theatre as you know it. Come for the experience.
