This contemporary adaptation of Aristophanes' classic comedy takes the best bits of the original Greek play and packs them into an hour of comedy, drama and clown balloons.
Lysistrata is an Athenian woman who convinces the other women of ancient Greece to go on a sex strike in order to persuade their men to end a terrible civil war.
In an original adaptation by Sholto Spradbury, this production was created by Vahri McKenzie, with a cast and crew of enthusiastic community members, using a workshop process involving improvisation and physical awareness.
The production has enjoyed the support of BREC's Community Access Grant that aims to encourage innovation in home-grown performance and celebrate The Cube theatre's versatile performance space. Ausdance WA have offered support via their regional contemporary dance program.
Will Lysistrata pull it off? This fun and cheeky performance is for mature audiences: it features deliciously filthy language and some nudity. This is ancient comedy… with balls!
