Presented by PRESENTED BY GIEMA CONTINI IN PARTNERSHIP WITH BRISBANE POWERHOUSE

Part of

Wonderland Festival 2019


Awesome Ocean Party is a magic-realism-cabaret cross birthday party hosted by a woman who believes she is half octopus.

She invites you, her party guests, into the depths of her three hearts. Through song, storytelling and ocean-themed everything she weaves together a tale of love, loss, longing and legends of amphibious family histories.

An exploration into our need for human connection, it asks the question: how can we come together beyond our differences and be courageous, vulnerable and human together in the face of pain, adversity and fear?

Awesome Ocean Party was nominated for Best Cabaret at Melbourne Fringe 2016 and features original music by Nathan Stoneham (Underground and Dokboki Box), and created and performed by acclaimed theatre maker and actor Giema Contini (The Lost Lending Library and The Arrival).

This is a fun, quirky and poignant adventure that will blow your expectations out of the water.
