What a treat to attend Anna Lumb's preview night of her new solo work Hard to Reach Places and see this internationally acclaimed performing dynamo at work.
Directed by Rebecca Church, Hard to Reach Places is built on Anna's daily balancing act of performing, raising a child, entertaining other people's kids, deejaying and fighting for that essential morning coffee. She is 40 and not stopping - she has more to do and you'll love her...and she is ripped!
This show has everything from flying toast to encounters with root vegetables, hooping, disco, balances on bicycles and Anna Lumb is both endearing and hilarious. She makes clumsy look magnificent with her adept talent in physical theatre and comedy. She is a laugh a minute, and her story is very relatable to parents, especially Mums.
So get your glitter and disco shoes on, and head on to Melbourne Fringe at Trades Hall. Anna Lumb will have you dancing along with her as she endeavours to be a woman who strives to balance it all - even the dark side and heartbreak.
Come and see pinatas, unicorns, amazing glitter undies and boots, hula hooping and other tricks.
