The Theatre Centre’s crack team of artists — Franco Boni, Aislinn Rose and Melissa Joakim — and I are headed to Australia to put Sea Sick on the stages of the Antipodes. And not just anywhere in Australia, but Darwin, the city of the northern coast, named after the gentleman naturalist who travelled around the world in the 1830s and gave us the theories of evolution and natural selection. My first book, Dancing at the Dead Sea, tracked Darwin’s adventures.
While I’m there, I’m taking a detour to Kakadu National Park, home to one of the largest stashes in the world of Indigenous rock art. It’s been a lifelong dream to go there.
So this is all feeling pretty exciting. Updates to come.
