Homotopia Festival 2018 presents…
Alaska is a funny, magical trip to the moon, with singing and dancing thrown in: one woman’s extraordinary story of how she survived growing up with severe depression.
A raw and powerful performance, with humour, heart and soul, with stunning vocals and beautiful imagery in the storytelling. With one in four of us estimated to experience mental health difficulties at some time in our lives, this is a story that touches everyone, whether first-hand or through family and friends.
“I called the show ALASKA after a line in a Lou Reed song, Caroline Says II, that goes ‘It’s so cold in Alaska.’ I chose that because most of the time my emotions seem numb, frozen. Then something happens and they wake up.”
Audience is limited to 20 people, so advanced booking is essential.
Co-commissioned by hÅb for Domestic II and The Albany.
