Camilla Blunden "All This Living!"
All This Living! ‘When I grow up I want to be an old woman’ Written and first performed by Camilla Blunden in Canberra at The Street Theatre in May 2015, had a return season there in March 2016 in conjunction with COTA
All This Living! a contemporary solo performance explores the offbeat world of an invisible, shrinking contemporary older woman Jay. It uses humour mixed with home truths and leaps of imagination. The performance is followed by Q&A /chat with the audience.
All This Living! Jay is on a quest ignored once too often as ‘just an old woman’ she sets out to investigate what this 'third stage' of life is? 'Retiree' but from what, life? Inside her is plenty piled up, but out there …?’. The Caillech and the Furies may help, her wrinkles and crinkles hold secrets and stories and she’s not a fossil. Guerrilla grannies have their piercing eyes on those anti-aging signs and her head is buzzing.
