Queen Esme of Collingwood

In turns hilarious, confronting and uplifting, this three-act monologue invites you inside the world of a wheelchair user.

Esme lives alone, high in a housing-commission estate, with a broken lift, a disability, a refugee neighbour who doesn't speak, and trademark Aussie humour and resolve.

Kate's At Home Residency Showing will present a work-in-progress performance with embedded Auslan interpretation, audio description and captions.

What is Take Over!?

A unique partnership between Arts Centre Melbourne and Melbourne Fringe, this year’s program features 10 fearless and unique artistic explorations that will take shape in artists’ homes across Victoria in the lead up to their presentation at Melbourne Fringe in November 2020.

What are the At Home Residency Showings?

This an opportunity to connect with the Take Over! artists at the end of their at home residencies and get an insight into the creative process. We have not been explicit with artists about what this showing must be. Some may share a part of the work they are developing, others might want to talk to you about their ideas. Others might need you to participate in an activity. There might be talking, dancing, reading, debating, sharing, singing, laughing, crying or music. You may be a passive audience member or you may want to contribute.

There are many unknowns, but one thing is guaranteed, you will be sharing in a creative process with some of our most visionary and boundary pushing artists – and that’s a rare opportunity.
