Fresh from winning the Melbourne Fringe 2018 award for Innovation in Culturally Diverse Practice, nomnomnom returns to Melbourne for a strictly limited season! Tickets are now on sale!
Expect the unexpected as this acclaimed food delivery show is set to take audiences time-travelling!
The third iteration of the global nomnomnom experience will be held at creative space Testing Grounds, where audiences will step into four time-travel portals to deliver meals across hyperspace.
Creator and curator Roshelle Fong has enlisted four dynamic artists who have each created a portal for the experience: Katherine Clarke, Grace De Morgan, Scott Sneddon and Keziah Warner.
"With a team of 11 performers and 12 creatives, this is the biggest iteration of nomnomnom yet! Theatre going audiences are looking for next-level experiences, which is why I wanted this time-travelling edition of nomnomnom to take flight from Melbourne where it all began," said Roshelle.
"The show is an ode to possibilities for connection within this direct-to-your-door gig economy we're in, and I'm thrilled to be supporting four amazing Australian writers who have based their portals around very complex, dynamic moments in history and the future. From Gold Rush Ballarat to a disturbing future florist, audiences are in for a wild ride! "
Since premiering the show at Melbourne Fringe, Roshelle has adapted nomnomnom in Seyðisfjörður, a town of 670 people in East Iceland. She is currently undertaking the Women in Theatre program at Melbourne Theatre Company and will take nomnomnom to Sydney's Kings Cross Theatre in June and Shanghai's Jinze ancient water town in August.
Writer Kathrine Clarke is a proud Wotjobaluk writer, artist and curator from the Wimmera who is premiering her first play as part of the show. "My background is in creative writing and screenwriting so I've taken this opportunity to really challenge myself and create work for immersive theatre," said Kat. "I'm collaborating with some amazing creatives too and I'm ecstatic that together, we're daring to tell these courageous stories."
nomnomnom is a must-experience, immersive event! Don a visor and deliver meals to households around the world and be part of poignant moments through time.
Nomnomnom will run from 10-12 May at Testing Grounds. Meet at 100 St Kilda Rd, Melbourne, on the lawn between Melbourne Arts Centre and Hamer Hall, at Inge King's sculpture 'Forward Surge'.
