A strange jaunt into the world of fruits and vegetables.
A hopeful carrot, seductive eggplant, excited tomatoes, bad-boy potato and organic leek sing and dance their way from the fridge to the chopping board. They hatch a plan to run from their fate. But can they escape before dinner time?
This work is recommended for people ages 15+

Kitchen Kabaret is a collaboration between Emily Norton and Maddie Johnston. Their last project, ‘Daisiez’ was shown at Carriageworks, as part of Performance Space’s Live Dreams, for Vivid Ideas 2022. Emily Norton (She/Her) is an artist and production designer. ‘Kitchen Kabaret’ is adapted for stage from a video art piece made by Norton in 2022. Her film ‘Kitchen Kabaret’ won the ‘Chin Chin Award’ and has been selected for Hatched 2023, currently on display at PICA, Perth. Maddie Johnston (She/Her) is an artist, actor and director. Her practice plays with the distinctions between performance art, installation, theatre and film. She co-wrote and assistant directed the musical ‘Inner West Side Story’, which won the Critics Choice Award at the Sydney Fringe Festival in 2018. The music is composed by Riley McCullagh (He/Him). McCullagh composed ‘1984: The Musical’, which has been produced at the New Theatre, Sydney and is making its community debut at the Seymour Centre with MUSE in July this year.
