SUMMERTIME IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN
BY SISTERS GRIMM
Created by Ash Flanders & Declan Greene
RETURN MELBOURNE SEASON (THEATRE WORKS – SELECTED WORKS)
SYDNEY SEASON (GRIFFIN THEATRE – GRIFFIN INDEPENDENT)
Georgia. 1861. A faded Southern belle returns to the family plantation after ten years away from home. But where has she been? Why did she run? And what secrets are buried in the ol’ greenhouse?
Fantastically melodramatic, at times obscene and definitely ‘something’, Summertime in the Garden of Eden is an epic story of love, betrayal and murder in the spirit of Gone With The Wind and Jezebel.
Following its sellout debut season (in a rusted shed in Thornbury), Sisters Grimm are proud to present a reimagined version of their deeply stupid Deep South slur – first in its hometown of Melbourne, before lifting up its hoop skirts and heading up to Sydney.
Starring infamous Melbourne scene-queens Agent Cleave and Olympia Bukkakis as feuding debutantes, alongside Sisters Grimm stalwarts Peter Paltos, Genevieve Giuffre and Bessie Holland.

In December 2012, I completed a two week development of a new work – In Deep Water- as part of Theatre Works Encounter(s) Program.
The current research I am undertaking, fouces the experience of traveling to the deep sea and the encounters one may have with bioluminescent creatures that live there. It also explore the different properties of light under water and how these animals use lighting as a language.
I will be working on this piece throughout 2013 in a number of different spaces. From the research I am currently conducting, I will create an interactive light sculpture within an immersive sensory environment. Audience members to be invited to take a journey into the unknown to meet this light being and communicate with it through the use of light.
To follow the research for this project and see the results from my research and experimentation, I have started a a blog. Check it out here
Currently I am fundraising for a second intensive development at Metro Arts!, Brisbane. Support this project through Pozilbe.
You can find out more about the Encounter(s) program and the other projects on their website
