Miss Reese Geronimo and I braved the peak hour traffic recently to perform at Subsonic Festival in Barrington Tops, a beautiful site near the Hunter Valley. Under the tall trees and by a river skirted with weeping willows, we set up the Umbrella Theatre to the delight of passing ravers.
I performed the new ‘Encounter with a Monster’, a puppetry piece about the boogey man, based on a poem by Kira Carpenter. It was a beautiful day and one doof-goer let me know that it was his favourite thing about the festival every time I encountered him over the course of the weekend. Very pleasing indeed!
Other highlights from the festival were the amazing Chali 2NA from Jurassic 5 and Hermitude on the main stage. There was also some fantastic belly dancing and burlesque, as well as some great dubstep and glitch djs catering to my dancing needs!
