April 25 @ 8:30 pm - April 30 @ 9:30 pm UTC+10
CARMEN, LIVE OR DEAD is the fascinating and extraordinary story of Carmen Frida Leon Davidovich, The Love Child of Frida Kahlo and Leon Trotsky, Carmen is complex. She is irreverent. She is salacious. She is bold. She is intersex. And it is the last day of her life.
Conceived by Craig Harwood and Natalie Gamsu, CARMEN is a fascinating, edgy and entertaining story of identity and survival. Starring one of Australia’s most diverse and exciting theatre and cabaret actors – Natalie Gamsu, and featuring original music by iOTA and Max Lambert.
At the end of her life, Carmen takes us on a reflective journey of discovery – an orphan, a refugee, a hermaphrodite, a human.
CARMEN, LIVE OR DEAD celebrates difference, embracing the feminine and the masculine with joy and life. A story brimming with unyielding authenticity, humour and grace, CARMEN is a unique and gripping theatrical experience that is moving, entertaining and thoroughly liberating.
