noun a beautiful, ugly, distorted truth-mirror. It's both comforting and confronting - and you cannot pull away.
Performed during the 2013 Sydney Fringe Festival at Old 505 Theatre we invited audiences on a dark journey with Fred and Ginger.
We meet Anon in an old run down, damp loft during her 999th attempt to recreate the act of trying to find a soulmate, her other self. Each attempt becomes a muddled and absurd opera libretto performed in arias, loosely coined ‘Fred & Ginger’. Accompanied by Key, a mute servant flautista we follow Anon's futile attempts to escape and connect.
Using the photography of Diane Arbus as inspiration, this duo-ensemble chronicles the incessant desire to be free versus the anxiety that arises when left alone - and in true Marquez Laundry style - combining live original music with movement and devised text, you might just find someone to hold onto in the lonely night.
