WAKE – The Rabble

WAKE is a performance installation by powerhouse experimental theatre makers THE RABBLE, created with an ensemble of older women from Melbourne’s West about the body, death and loneliness.

Audiences are welcomed into the iconic Italian Social Club in Altona to experience a work that is part party, part surreal vaudeville show, part conversation and part town hall meeting. WAKE asks audiences to consider the difficult and taboo discussions around ageing but also celebrates the gloriousness of eight spectacular older women.

WAKE embraces connection, the rituals we inhabit as we age and the spaces where we feel most comfortable.
