A touching, true and laugh out loud tale of how an extreme introvert became a performer in Cirque du Soleil.
In the style of New York storytelling phenomenon The Moth, this pulsating autobiographical storytelling takes a traditional armchair chat and injects it with a dose of the dramatic, some gripping situational comedy, intelligent reflections and riveting re-enactments.
Absolutely weaves a mesmerising collection of embarrassing personal foibles, inspirational encounters and universal truths that resonate long after the final breath. From Western Australia’s darkest suburbia to iconic outback isolation to the finale on a grandiose big top stage, it explores belonging, having a dream, and accepting where the unexpected can take you.
