Adelaide’s own Robyn Archer has travelled far and wide since leaving our fair city back in 1977 to become an international cabaret superstar. We know this because she has kept a vast array of boarding passes, baggage stubs, train tickets and hotel ephemera from journeys undertaken in the course of her life on the road. And not only that, she has also managed to procure, bring home and store flat-pack architectural models of iconic and everyday buildings from every city she has visited!
With the help of designer Geoff Cobham, Robyn is finally getting out the sticky tape and putting together an installation that will take us all on a journey through the wide world, one that you can take anytime during this Festival showing. But Picaresque also gives Robyn and virtuoso accordionist George Butrumlis a rare opportunity to busk their way around this cardboard world.
Come and share the space with one of Australia’s most loved artists as she sings through her song book of the world.
You can also see Robyn Archer speak in the Festival Forums on Thursday 14 March at 12:30pm.
Arguably the greatest cabaret artist in the country
