Swimming carnivals. Blue light discos. Messy buns. Legs and shorts and sun. It’s the aftermath of high school, it’s the relationships you made, and how they fall apart in the decade afterwards. Expect puberty. Expect poetry. Expect to be reminded of everyone.

The show is fiction and distils two years of writing, thinking, and feeling after a terrible real-world event in which one of my high school friends was murdered by another friend. A 15 minute performance of poetry and music by Eleanor Malbon and Hannah Lord. This show has a content warning for murder (seriously).

This event is part of ART HOUSE, an evening of intimate and spectacular performance set in a home turned maker space, with food and drink available throughout by donation. Your ticket guarantees you entry to the whole two-and-a-half-hour ART HOUSE program, and we strongly encourage you to come for the duration and experience the journey from the first work to the finale.
