The notorious Beechworth Lunatic Asylum has the honour of helping unveil their most ominous exhibitors so far.
The Baby Farmer, a confronting yet ambitious work by Australia’s most bizarre performers, The Laudanum Project, is here.
Presented in a variety of medias (performance, fine art exhibition, and art-based book) this story of a helpless child and her unbalanced mother forms an ever-shifting musical tapestry, a tale of destiny, lost innocence, and the nature of evil.
The nature of the work is fluid, with theatre patrons and journalists continually floored by the talent on show: “Evoking Jean Genet and the penny dreadful, it both thrills and repulses, and will haunt you for days.” – Christopher Fieldus, Hana Theatre Journal.
The Laudanum Project has shocked audiences since 2009, combining the darkest concepts with the highest quality of writing, performance, and music. “ … an unsettling piece of raconteur theatre but it is also a great piece of theatre.” – Myron My, Theatre Press.
Alongside the unsettling performance, Victorian artist Chloe Neath’s exquisite artwork from the book will be exhibited, each piece intricately detailed charcoal on brown paper, each piece both disturbing and beautiful, each piece for sale, along with signed copies of the published work.
