‘EGG’: A PERFECTLY COOKED NEW SHOW PREMIERING AT ADELAIDE FRINGE
February 19 – March 21
Adelaide Fringe: ‘Egg’: an egg-straordinary show that will crack you up!
Single, 32, and with her biological clock ticking, Erin’s eggs — according to a Facebook ad — are “dying off.” For $15k she could freeze them, but are there other options? Does she even want a child? Is she just buying into social pressures and guilt-laden marketing? By the time she makes a choice, will it already be too late?
Questioning all things fertility and motherhood
EGG is a hilarious, topical, and moving new solo work from Erin Fowler (Adelaide Best Dance, 2019 & Made in Adelaide, 2020).
Directed by illustrious clown performer Hew Parham, the show combines dance, clowning, some bagpipes, a cheeky life-sized egg, and a pulsating 80s soundtrack to question all things fertility and motherhood in a powerful exploration of how we make (and live with) the big decisions in life.
Erin Fowler is an Australian artist working across the dance, physical theatre, music and film industries. She creates and presents deeply feminine, audience-driven, socially-minded work that blends together an eclectic mix of contemporary dance, theatre, music, clowning and martial arts. Issues of femininity and the environment are common themes of her work.
In celebration of her new work, Erin has teamed up with EGG sound designer, Will Spartalis, to produce a podcast called The Waiting Womb. The podcast explores the idea of child-rearing alongside a career in the arts, exploring the potential challenges and joys including late night performing, job uncertainty, and backstage creche fantasies.
The Waiting Womb provides an additional outlet for Erin to explore the themes of the work as they speak to a bevy of incredible artists who are either navigating parenthood, have decided
it’s not for them, or are still undecided. There will be two live recordings of the podcast during the Fringe.
