Covid has scuppered our Adelaide segment again this month, so we’re at The Motley Bauhaus for the start of this week’s show with recent Geoffrey Milne Green Room Award recipient and Motley head honcho, Jason Cavanaugh who’s taken an idea that many venues have embraced since the pandemic lockdowns – the idea that you can see a show online as well as on stage – but has pushed it a little further.


Then we catch up with Pony Knox who together with Emma Krause and Simone Springer forms the trio known as The Motherhood Comedy. As the name suggests, their work stems from the experience of being mothers and their hit show Mums Gone Wild is heading to Victoria for a whirlwind tour.


After that, it’s from mothers to daughters. The Somebody’s Daughter Theatre Company has been working with women in prison since 1981 and their latest show, She Swallowed That Lie is the work of both women with lived prison experience and marginalised young people from regional Victoria. The show’s director is Kharen Harper and she joins us to talk about how the company goes about making such significant work.


Then finally, we drop in to MUMA, the Monash University Museum of Art to talk with well-known choreographer Shelley Lasica about When I Am Not There, a survey of her work created over the past forty years.


They’re all on tonight’s edition of Behind the Scenes with me Chris Thompson right here on Vision Australia Radio.
