What did Ken and Barbie do when you weren’t looking?
Babushka present a cute and creepy cabaret all about our first childhood BFF, the doll. Utilising their range of talents, the Babushka gals will nurse dolls, break dolls and become dolls in their typically surprising arrangements of everything from Regurgitator to Offenbach.
Prepare to be seduced, comforted, tickled and burped through a darkly comedic musical experience drawing from opera, 80s pop, nursery rhymes and rock ’n’ roll.
Take a stroll down the sinister side of memory lane and see the world through your dolly’s eyes: how do we use them to objectify, pacify, falsify and deny?
We yearn to be Barbie, cuddle our Cabbage Patch baby, stick pins in Voodoo dolls (but not in blow-up dolls), and sometimes we behave like dolls ourselves. Babushka beckons you into the Barbie Dreamhouse for a very grown-up play-date… Batteries sold separately.
Doll is assisted by the Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts’ Fresh Ground artist-in-residence initiative, made possible through Arts Queensland.
