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.

Clowning Around

I have recently completed a 6-week clown training course with the Melbourne Community Clown Troupe, headed by the fantastic Liz Skitch at Westside Circus. As a physical performer with loads of comedy experience, I took to this training like a clown to a red nose, literally. I find it so useful as a theatre-maker to experience many different performance styles and clowning is definitely a growing passion of mine. Sometimes, the simple and seemingly silly can reveal humanity on a scale far greater than any complex drama. This is why I find clowning so wonderfully deceiving in its power.
