High Expectations

HIGH EXPECTATIONS
THE BRAIN YOU’RE DYING TO PICK

A FRINGE WORLD show on JANUARY 17th - 28th. The space within Ivy & Jack on Hay St will be transformed into the inside of a GIANT HUMAN BRAIN!

Come huddle in a pink, squishy brain, complete with arteries, neurons and throbbing lobes. Watch the dreams and hear the internal monologue of the brain we are invading, stuttering out a ‘stream of consciousness’. Bargaining, distracting, sabotaging, solving, you’ll find the tiny dancer right in the middle of the ‘ing’. She’s navigating the twisted trails of her own mangled thoughts.

She’s desperate to ace the interview for a new job that she is woefully under qualified for. But will she get to live out her 80s ‘Working Girl’ fantasies before an incoming meteor obliterates the entire planet? This mixed media contemporary dance experience stuffs you smack bang in the gooey centre of her, desperate and sticky predicaments.

"It’s almost hypnotic: Samantha’s narration has a wonderful, driving beat flecked with internal rhyme that is reminiscent of high-grade performance poetry." Sam Baran The 107 Blog, 2016

Located in Perth's CBD, Ivy & Jack features an extensive selection of premium wine, beer, innovative cocktails - and fun. Wheelchair accessible and just meters away from two undercover parking facilities. This show is appropriate for children. Buy tickets at the venue or at any FRINGE WORLD box office or the FRINGE WORLD website.
