Through song, dance and spoken word Songwoman tells the sharp, funny and often harrowing story of three bi-racial siblings growing up in the United States of America in the 1960’s.
The youngest: the autistic and schizophrenic brother.
The middle child: a woman who migrates to Australia, a country struggling with its own racial history.
The eldest: the extraordinary, beautiful and gifted sister.
This dynamic show is powerful and unique with an original score,
words and music by Gerianne Rudd. Choreography by Anya McKee.
The narrator, Songwoman, weaves story and song accompanied by lush musical arrangements that create dynamic worlds where dancers Katina Olsen and Czak Ses Bero move and play inside.
It tells of a particular time and place, but it could take place anytime, anywhere.
