Phoenix Vixen Crinoline
She — a widow, a seamstress, a liar and a sly grog seller. He — a celestial traveller, poet, prospector, herbalist and grower of cardoons.
This is an imagined account of an uncommon marriage, drawn from historical sources, as played out on the goldfields of 1850s Victoria. Themes of love and loss, distance and collision, and cultural difference are experienced in a series of spaces as the story unfolds. Part installation, part performance, Phoenix Vixen Crinoline is a multimedia re-imagining that will engage all the senses.
