Presented by Perth Festival

Daring and dynamic UK performance artist Ursula Martinez is the 2019 ArtistIn-Residence. She brings her provocative performance style to Perth for a series of workshops and two very different theatre shows. In 1998 Martinez shared the stage with her parents in A Family Outing.

Now, 20 years later, she attempts to recreate the show without her dad and with a mother who can no longer remember her lines. Absorbed in wryly honest and frank conversation, mother and daughter expose the banalities, hilarity, foibles and frustrations of their relationship.

Contrasting past and present, they bicker, cajole and encourage each other through this endearingly ad hoc, entertaining and uplifting performance.
