I had read this show was quirky, but could not have predicted what the Wudidonga Arts Revue brought to the stage last night. I don't even have words. So strange, confusing even. I am not sure if I was laughing with genuine amusement or pure befuddlement. I guess if I had to sum it up, my English friend did it pretty well as she walked out after the show sporting the same confused look I had upon her face as she uttered "Well that was very Aussie".
Starring, Kel Balnaves & Adelaide Comedian of the Year Leigh Qurban, this show has a unique Australian quirk, that can only be described nonsensical absurdity. In saying that, if absurdity is the what this show was reaching for, it hit the mark and kept going!
Based in the Wudidonga RSL, one of the board members decides to create a fundraiser for a fake charity after losing all his money on the dogs. The board decides to host an Arts Revue, with a range of different performances. The guys embodied each character extremely well, bringing each personality and character to life.
The Wudidonga Arts Revue will either leave or more confused than when you entered the show or will have you in fits of laughter. During the performance, I probably spent more time laughing at some of the audience's reactions to the show. There were roars of laughter and hands over mouth due to the shocking, strange and often crude performance.
If you're after something different or a truly Australian experience, this is the show for you. If you are wanting to impress a first date or take your grandma to a nice theatre show, this ain't it!
Showing from February 18th- March 3rd in the Warehouse at The Producers, this is bound to be one of the weirdest shows you'll see this Fringe.
