A Nose of Her Own

Clowning was never so sexy. Fourteen fabulous fractious funny females came together Soobee 3a.jpg (22527 bytes)in a celebration of everything that's ridiculous about life and the fairer sex.

Two of Australia's top women performers joined with a gang from the local WOW Women's circus to present a world premier of a new work.pam_ampamp_dee_towel a.jpg (28584 bytes) Opening with a chaotic 'Charivari' In which a dozen or so clowns take over the stage and the auditorium, the show moves into itıs centre piece which is a duet for Two clowns and a Baby Grand Piano.  This was followed by the Grand finale ­ a surreal reinvention in which the clowns do their version of a Water Ballet a la Esther Williams. 

The show drew on elements of vaudeville, circus and popular performance while also accessing the atmospheric space and the marvelous balconies of the Waiting Not Drowning 1.jpg (34834 bytes) beautiful  Bruce Gordon Theatre.
