Summerhall Festival - Cairns Lecture Theatre
'I'm starting to think about genetics, what's passed on. What isn't. I'm thinking of my grandmother, Valerie.' Named Stand-Out Cabaret of the Year by the NZ Herald, Valerie is an intergenerational, interdisciplinary and interrupting piece of theatre reaching into the guts of family mythologies. Music, genetics and storytelling combine to unravel one family's history. A love letter from grandson to grandmother, this celebration of resilience is gig theatre at its finest. 'Beautifully polished, striking, recommended.' (NZ Herald). Presented by Last Tapes Theatre Company. Created by Robin Kelly, Cherie Moore, and Tom Broome. Directed by Benjamin Henson.
