What's On

Cleave
 

Sex, blood and world-class puppet magic.

Inspired by the incredible lives of Daisy and Violet Hilton, conjoined twins born in 1908 in Brighton, England. At age 4, they were shown as freaks at Luna Park, Melbourne and travelled the Australian Outback with a wagon circus.

Colleen Burke was born with twin internal sex organs, an anomaly that caused a great deal of grief and had a ‘twin’ sister who was also different. Can family ties ever be cut?

This is solo theatre at its finest. Colleen Burke has the unique perspective and agency to discuss the chequered history of “freak culture”.
