Q&A WITH PAST DAME JOAN SUTHERLAND FUND RECIPIENTS
Krystalla Pearce and Bridget Balodis

 

Krystalla and Bridget are Australian theatre makers living in New York. Both originally from Melbourne, Krystalla moved to New York for work and soon found love; Bridget moved to New York for love and soon found work! They are both working on a new playPoint of Origin,which opens at The Brick Theater in Williamsburg on April 27th. Krystalla co-wrote and performs inPoint of Origin;Bridget is co-directing the show.

Point of Originis an immersive theatre experience. It starts with a leg of lamb being placed in an oven on stage. As the aromas fill the theatre, the cast figures out how to tell three stories – about a shape-shifting hag witch from Finland; a slimy con artist from Greece; and their descendants, an Australian woman and an American woman who find themselves in New York.

Sometimes these stories are told with words, other times through dance, but most deliciously they are told through food. The audience receives food samples throughout the performance and shares in the leg of lamb at the end of the play. Read Q&A here.
