femme / showgirl / queer / spectacular

A collage of literary theft. A lesson in build-your-own identity. Stealing from Cervantes, online dating sites and instant porn, Don Quixote makes and unmakes herself in a Frankenstein of music, theatre, art and Amanda Bynes twitter feed.

An unashamedly feminine, unexpected and revealing work by queer, femme showgirl Kerith Manderson-Galvin (Green Screen, SANS HOTEL/MTC; don’t bring lulu, UHT; Side Effect, 22 Short Plays, MKA) with the sugary sounds of a live girl group.

“I still don’t have a clear idea of what my voice is.” – Kerith after Kathy Acker

“Powerful, wickedly playful, and truly innovative” – HANA
“ingenuous and ingenious” – A Furrhman
“Her naive, boundary-less ingenue is achingly funny” – Herald Sun
“Always riveting to watch” – Beat
“I’ll see anything Kerith writes” – AussieTheatre
