16 – 25 Feb @ The Gold Digger @ Fringe Central ∙
Presented by: Michelle Zahner ∙

A superhero story that refuses to read like a comic book. Michelle Zahner joyfully mixes comedy, poetry & movement to work out how being a ‘superhero’ in the ‘real world’ really works. How do you rescue people from depression, or a broken friendship? How do you fight a cyclone, or a rabid llama, or the patriarchy? What do you call a boy damsel? And shouldn’t there be a villain somewhere?

With limited powers and more responsibility than she wants she finds herself dealing with media hype, impossible expectations, protest groups and sponsorship deals. Batman never had to deal with this s**t.
Michelle invites the audience to be a part of the story, to add their own questions and maybe even take up a mask themselves.
