Live Show: Jude Perl – Participation Award
Singer, songwriter and comedian Jude Perl presents a historically accurate show, which begs the age-old question—why does school suck so much? Is it the compulsory sporting events? One size fits all grading methods? Maintaining your precarious position in a volatile social food chain? Or is it just the arbitrary bullying?
Delivered with her signature high-energy, high-awkward, vulnerable-when-no-one-asked-her-to-be musical story telling, Jude explores confrontation through the ages, (her ages). As it turns out, confrontation isn’t so hard if you just close your eyes and imagine you are in a calmer, distant place… then all you have to do is move to that place, change your name and hair colour, and that way the person you are confronting has no way of ever finding you.
Jude Perl has established herself as a comedian/musician/artist who presents ‘hilarious and painfully spot on observations’ (Plus Ones) mixed with ‘insanely clever and comical songwriting’ (Melbourne Observer). She has won 3 consecutive Green Room Awards for Best Original Songs, and her 5th solo show ‘I Have A Face’ won the Best Cabaret award at Melbourne Fringe 2018.
Performance duration 1 hour, no interval.
Suitable for ages 16+, Themes around bullying, some coarse language, mental health themes (anxiety/depression), sustained loud noises, sudden loud noises.
