Witness one young woman’s brutal test of her social and sexual capacity in a powerful live storytelling performance.
Wonderbabes is a thrilling performance by Kate McDowell exposing the traumas of our young sexual and political lives. Set in Byron Bay on New Year’s Eve Wonderbabes is the epic story of one young woman’s incendiary journey through the night. Underpinned by a live electronic score from DJ / sound designer James Brown, Kate McDowell’s spellbinding performance is full of rage and poetic beauty.
“This show is about a young woman who’s testing her limits. She’s angry and frustrated with her mother, the world, and pretty much everyone. She wants to cause trouble, get into danger, and feel something intense in order to know herself better. It’s a two-hour performance piece written as a hero’s journey that has the pace and structure to keep you hanging in there.” — Kate McDowell
Presented by NORPA and The Quad, Wonderbabes is performed in a large-scale tent in Lismore’s new outdoor precinct complete with open fires and an outdoor bar. Come and experience this extraordinary performance!
