Detox (Updated dates)

 

In this dramatic comedy, Genie embarks on a 12 week challenge to improve her health and self-confidence. Audiences spectate Genie’s physical and internal battle when uncovering the true meaning of health and wellness.

13 May 2022 - 21 May 2022

Presented by:

Bourke & Heather and Anywhere Festival

From ‘clean’ eating, to 12 week challenges, to exposing your privates to the sun, at some stage we all find ourselves on the quest for a healthier lifestyle. But have you ever considered if these habits are actually making you unwell?

NOTICE: The Friday 13 and Saturday 14 performances have been cancelled due to a COVID case in the cast. All ticket holders can move to an alternative date or get a refund.

Genie’s quest to improve her health pushes her into a world of dieting, bootcamps, swamp juice, influencers and toxic friendships. Presented at the Old Jojo’s Restaurant, audiences spectate Genie’s internal and external battles when trying to find the good amongst the misleading. Along the way, Genie will uncover uncomfortable truths about herself and her place in the world.

Proudly supporting the Butterfly Foundation. 15% of ticket sales will be donated to Butterfly to help continue their mission of supporting people with eating disorders and body image concerns

Trigger Warning: This performance references, dieting, weight loss and eating disorders. Please consider if Detox is right for you.

Through anonymous surveys, Bourke & Heather discovered the impact of the fitness, dieting, health & wellness industries. We decided to create a performance which voices real stories through verbatim statements while also depicting a storyline which is reflective of many people’s experiences with these industries. Detox aims to provide insight into how the quest for wellness can send one down a rabbit hole into illness.

Written by: Sophie Heather & Tish Bourke. Verbatim statements provided by anonymous respondents.

Stage Cast: – Tyra Pohlman – Sophie Heather – Macarra Berthaly-Martyn – Téa, Gross
