Sweet Child of Mine
September 5 – 21, 2013
Featuring Australian performer Bron Batten and her 60 year-old parents live onstage, discussing art, theater and what Bron actually does for a living. Their insights are earnest, poignant, and painfully hilarious as they ask themselves and the audience, what exactly is the point of art?
Sweet Child of Mine is an inter-generational performance investigation combining theatre, modern dance, stand up comedy, audience participation and visual digital media. These elements combine to create an innovative style of post-dramatic performance that is honest, real and uniquely Australian – whilst also transcending cultural boundaries to speak to a universal experience.
Winner of the Best Experimental Performance at the 2011 Melbourne Fringe Festival, Sweet Child of Mine has since toured nationally to Sydney, Adelaide and Perth Fringeworld Festival where it was also nominated for Best Theatre Production. This U.S. premiere is supported by Arts Victoria and The Australia Council for the Arts.
