ALL OF MY FRIENDS WERE THERE
Melbourne Festival 2017 (October 5-11) (World Premiere)
Blow out the candles on your expectations. This is your life – seen through the prism of your most memorable birthdays. But just whose birthday is it?
A companion work to renowned live art piece FUNERAL (2016 Melbourne Festival), ALL OF MY FRIENDS WERE THERE invites participating audience members to share their favourite birthday memories via questionnaire and bear witness to a tailored theatrical performance. Each evening showcases an entirely new narrative, an entirely unique human story, and celebrates the random beauty and tragedy of life. Happy Birthday To Us.
Known for pushing the boundaries of the live art experience, The Guerrilla Museum experiments with trust, surprise, and patience – and reward audiences who come along for the ride.
Every night a different consenting audience member is chosen to experience the full arc of their life to this point, performed on stage. Will it be you? There’s only one way to find out…
There will be cake.
