TWO SHOWS, ONE TICKET. ONE GREAT NIGHT.
Act 1: Everything You Ever Wanted
Have you ever worried that if you let yourself, you’d never stop eating?
Have you had that worry for a loved one?
Everything You Ever Wanted is a new theatre work by Australian theatre artist Rachel Roberts exploring the science of dieting, weight and disordered eating.
Rachel Roberts is an intelligent, sensitive and cheeky theatre maker. Cutting her teeth with Sydney brats Applespiel and Canberra’s science-theatre mavericks Boho Interactive, Rachel places herself under the microscope in this deeply personal exploration of diet culture and disordered eating.
Research and development has been supported by Create NSW, the Ned Foundation, ATYP and Q Lab at The Joan.
“Applespiel are young, whip-smart, tirelessly creative, and will no doubt be causing a ruckus for quite some time.” – The Brag
This show contains discussion of eating disorders.
Act 2: How I Saved The Western Black Rhino
If you’re looking at a whole lot of endangered species but you only have enough resources to save some, how do you make that decision?
In the history of the earth there have been five mass extinction events, the most famous of which is the dinosaurs. With the current extinction rate thousands of times higher than normal, we might be in the middle of the sixth – and this one is being caused by us.
In How I Saved The Western Black Rhino, Australian theatre maker Nathan Harrison looks at the current extinction crisis and explores the daunting complexity of wildlife conservation – along with the uplifting story of travelling to Africa to try to save one of the last Western Black Rhinos in existence.
Development has been supported by Camden People’s Theatre, Hackney Showroom, Coney, and Q Theatre’s Q Lab Residency at The Joan.
