Confidante

A STUDENT INITIATED PRODUCTION

CONCEIVED AND DIRECTED BY CATHERINE MCNAMARA (BPERF)
ASSISTANT DIRECTOR: GEORGIA BRODERICK

Devised in collaboration with the performers: Cheryn Frost, Emma Hughes, Georgia Broderick and Louisa Raft. 

I’m too large for you… my body, my ego, my thoughts, my desires...

Confidante explores the uncensored female body and mind – both at peace and in chaos.  A Mother finds a fraction of a moment to sit still.  A Singer makes her apocalyptic emergency plan.  A Dancer grows lotus flowers from her toes.  An Actor contemplates her lifelong love affair with cheeseburgers.

Four stripped-bare women perform a devised work that swings rapidly from ritualised dance to personal phobia… from sombre reflection to impersonations of Beyonce. They let their jiggly parts run free and expose their hilarity, their sorrow, their power, their vulnerability.

Double degree student, Catherine McNamara, having completed a Bachelor of Communication and Media Studies is in the third year of a Bachelor of Performance. In 2012, she co-wrote and performed in the critically acclaimed production, The Defence (directed by Chris Dunstan), which was featured in PACT’s program for the Sydney Fringe Festival and at Wollongong’s Merrigong Theatre. This is her first outing as a director.
