Happy-Go-Wrong

My exciting new solo show Happy-Go-Wrong will have its development season this May as part of La Mama Explorations 2019. This show is not only experimental artistically, but also physically for me with my chronically ill body. It’s my first time back on stage with a new work in years. I’m very proud. It’s a beautiful gem of a show which is driven by my own real-life navigation of struggle and mortality through my illness and the extraordinary resilience which us humans often don’t realise we have in us until we are put to the test. As is my Andi way, the show blends physical theatre with clowning and plunges deep into existentialism, while remaining a comedy with pathos. I promise you’ll have as much fun as you will meaningful reflection with this one! It’s on Fri 17th, Sat 18th & Sun 19th May, 7:30pm at The Burrow, Fitzroy and you can book HERE.

#DearDiary is done!

I've just finished a dream run of my debut solo show, #DearDiary at The Butterfly Club as part of Melbourne Fringe Festival 2015. I am blown away by the extraordinary response which I have received, from complete strangers tracking me down to let me know how much the show affected them, to an Opening Night standing ovation, to the post-show foyer buzz, to the wonderful reviews. Here are links to some of the reviews:
