Giema Contini: Awesome Ocean Party

Attend the watery birthday of a woman who thinks she's half octopus.

Welcome to the Awesome Ocean Party, aka the party you never knew you always wanted to go to. Your host believes that she's half human and half octopus, and she'll be telling you a tale of romance, tragedy and yearning — plus more than a few legends from her amphibious family history — at her birthday celebration.

At this surreal and silly shindig — which first premiered in Brisbane a few years back — you'll see Giema Contini in action. When it initially hit the stage, this was her first solo work, branching out after spending time with La Boite Theatre Company, Motherboard Productions and Dead Puppet Society.

So exactly what does an Awesome Ocean Party entail? Songs, stories, plenty of talk about the sea and a whole lot of quirkiness. Running from Thursday, November 21–Sunday, November 24, it's part of this year's Wonderland festival at Brisbane Powerhouse, so expect it to be characteristically weird and wonderful.
