SEWER RAT GIRL

Busting out the sewer and into your heart

"An experimental, bizarre and amusing piece of performance art and theatre that is completely different to anything you would have previously seen – Sewer Rat Girl would not be out of place as a contemporary performance art piece at MoMA in New York..." 
4.5 Stars - Glam Adelaide 2022

"Sewer Rat Girl is a festival show, a crowd-pleaser with a brave performer who is taking advantage of her time on the stage to test herself in a thousand different ways..." NEHIB 2021

Life above ground getting you down? Is the sun shining too brightly on your deep insecurities? Would you prefer a hairy body and night vision eyes but worry there's no place in the world for you? Well, you'll love SEWER RAT GIRL. The rat-human hybrid who’s rejected reality!

You are invited into the bowels of the earth to revel in a stinky stanky fantasy. Marvel at Sewer Rat Girl’s bodily functions! Gasp at her sordid past! Cheer at her shiny sewer future! If you’ve ever felt that there might be something quite profound to your scurrying, nibbling, never-showering rodent ways then prepare to resonate!

II want to acknowledge that I work, live and play on Stolen Land. I acknowledge the Traditional Owners I call home in Magan-djin (Brisbane), the Jaggera and Turrbal people. I acknowledge all Elders, and all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people whose lands I occupy. Soverignty was never ceded.

This was and always will be, Aboriginal land. 

Colonisation must end.
