Adelaide do not miss “I am not a Unicorn!” at the Fringe Festival

If anyone has seen my facebook, instagram or twitter feeds lately they will know… I love UNICORNS! So when I saw that there was a show called “I am not a Unicorn!” I was a little more than intrigued.

Who doesn’t want to be a unicorn! Well! Emma J Hawkins doesn’t, at least, she doesn’t want to be referred to as one ( between you and I, she also thinks they are quite awesome.) Emma has made an incredible festival show that I got to see at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival last year. It’s got fairytales, unicorns, laughs, poingant moments and lots of suprises in store. And now… Adelaide Fringe, it’s your turn!

Don’t miss this show – here’s a little bit more:

I Am Not A Unicorn Live-1

Come and get lost down the rabbit hole with Emma J Hawkins, where Alice is probably drunk playing cards with Goldilocks and the three bears.

I am not a Unicorn! will debut at Adelaide Fringe 2016 at The Royal Croquet Club, 9pm, 12-21 February, 2016 (excluding Monday’s.) There will be an auslan interpreted show held on the 19 February at 9pm.

I am not a Unicorn! is peppered with moments so immersive that the audience truly gets to feel what it is like to walk in a short statured person’s shoes. Experience an engaging and light hearted look at life lived at 103cm short.

Emma is a keen supporter and advocate for fair representation of diversity in Australian performing arts specifically for artists with a disability. Although the show is often tongue in cheek and light, Emma also hopes to raise awareness for the acceptance of disabilities in the community and the perception of what is ‘normal’.

Emma J Hawkins enjoyed a magnificent debut at Melbourne International Comedy Festival in 2015 with reviews including:

“Equal parts hilarious, terrifying and arousing” – Karen Pickering, Cherchez la Femme

Darkness and Light

I’m thrilled to be going to Adelaide next week to attend the Adelaide Fringe Festival and to be attending this show, Darkness and Light.

 

Depression and anxiety are often taboo subjects in our society but this Comedy Show is bringing light to the topic through a range of hilarious and talented comedians sharing their stories.

 

If in Adelaide over the next week, this is a must see!

Darkness and Light at the Adelaide Fringe

 

 

Adelaide, South Australia: Making its debut at the Adelaide Fringe Festival this year, Darkness and Light is a show for those who like their comedy a little on the real side.

Darkness and Light will run at The Tuxedo Cat from March 10  To March 17th (excluding Wednesday 13th ) at 11pm each night.

 

Darkness and Light brings together a fusion of funny people using a combination of stand-up, and stunning storytelling, to uncover the comedy gold that lurks beneath some of their darkest days. This is not about making light of a serious issue, it’s to demonstrate how darkness and light can co-exist in our lives and we can persevere.

 

Anyone who’s ever experienced bullying, mental illness, racism, coming out, grief, chronic illness, substance misuse, a broken heart, or just a really bad day will find they’re not the only ones, as some of the Fringe Festival’s top comics (and some very special international guests) share their very personal postcards from the edge.

 

Often confronting, but always funny, the Darkness and Light line-up changes every night, and features a stellar selection of comics at the top of their game, including:

 

DeAnne Smith, Cath Styles, Richard McKenzie, Jon Bennett, Michael Bowley, Toby Halligan, Lori Bell, Alexis Dubus, Simon Taylor, Morven Smith, Ben McKenzie, Mark Trenwith, Nikki Britton, Nath Valvo, Abigoliah Schamaun, Juliet Meyers, Bryan Lynagh, Tim Whitt, and many more.

 

*Check Fringe website for nightly line-up.

 

We invite you to step into the dark side, and see the light!

 

“Darkness and Light was an important and deeply satisfying evening. I came away feeling uplifted. I strongly suggest people go and support this show. It needs to be performed again and again: opening people’s minds, opening people’s hearts.” Glass Wings
