Presented by The Last Tuesday Society and premiering at The 2011 Melbourne Fringe Festival, Sweet Child of Mine is a cross-generational theatre work, featuring performer Bron Batten and her 60 year-old parents live onstage.
Providing frank opinions on theatre, Bron's own performance history and things in general, their insights are poignant, earnest and at the same time, painfully hilarious. Asking themselves and and the audience: what exactly is the POINT of art?
A mixture of theatre, stand-up, performance art and awkward family function, Sweet Child of Mine will resonate with anyone who has trouble communicating with their family about who they are - or what they do for a living.
Come and hear some Dad jokes - direct from the source.
Sweet Child of Mine is the second piece in Bron Batten's Guns 'n Roses Trilogy and features original sound design from emerging composer Edward Gould (Next Wave, Attic Erratic, Choir Straits). Presented at Studio 246, Brunswick's newest underground arts venue.
A collaboration 27 years in the making- FOUR NIGHTS ONLY.
