* Madame Nightshade's Poison Garden | Midsumma 2019 *
She's back! After sell out shows at Perth FRINGE WORLD, and a NOMINATION for BEST THEATRE, Madame Nightshade is ready to seduce you at Midsumma Festival 2019! In the dystopian world of the Poison Garden, Beatrice (a devilish shape-shifter), lurks in the shadow of her alter-ego Madame Nightshade (a princess-like assassin) as she serves up the messy truths of our ailing planet. An anarchic playground where vegetables are transformed into semi-automatic weapons, Snow White becomes a spring-onion wielding samurai and Mars Bars represent the waste of the world: this is queer, feminist, environmental clowning that will leave you with food for thought! A dark, visceral, physical comedy created and performed by Anna Thomson, directed by Sarah Ward (Yana Alana) and Maude Davey, dramaturgy and co-direction by Jaye Hayes and Vidya Rajan. Anna Thomson is a Melbourne-based clown, theatre-maker, and queer performer. She is a founding member of PO PO MO CO; Melbourne’s award-winning, irreverent queer-comedy troupe. Presented by Anna Thomson and Gasworks Arts Park. "...delightful, disgusting, provocative and confronting..." ★★★★ - Artshub (2017) "...feminist, environmental, queer clowning that digs into rocky ground..." ★★★★ - The Age (2017) "...a masterpiece of modern grotesque comedy..." ★★★★★ - Gutterculture (2018) DATES: Jan 23rd-26th TIME: 9PM, Studio Theatre VENUE: Gasworks Arts Park, 21 Graham St, Albert Park Image credit: Theresa Harrison
