Redneck Greenie - Confessions of an Ozymoron

Redneck Greenie - Confessions of an Ozymoron.

Theatre and Physical Theatre • Storytelling
Northern Territory • SA Premiere

Redneck Greenie straddles the genres of stand-up comedy, impro, story-telling, satire and physical theatre. It’s Brechtian Cabaret, Aussie style.

This show explores two common Australian social viewpoints which, at first, appear to be diametrically opposed. We see that they are, in fact, facets of the one bloke as he navigates his personal inner conflict, often in outrageously funny ways. This is a true story. Several stories, in fact.

Stories are chosen by audience from a list of titles like: Fear in Tangier; Imagineer Candy Man; Acid in a tall Moron; A*sehole Angel; Rooftop Crop; Clown Cops; Fringe Criminals; Firewood from the Sky and dozens more! Every show is different. Farmboy, actor and NT Greens candidate Robbie Hoad masterfully weaves fantastic tales. He’s done all the dumb things!

Rob Hoad studied Theatre Arts in Adelaide with Off-Broadway, Adelaide Cabaret Festival and Adelaide Fringe founder Frank Ford. Rob moved to Darwin in 1990 and has been an eclectic freelance performing artist and educator throughout the NT ever since. From actor with Darwin Theatre Company and Brown’s Mart Theatre to Stilt-walking clown, international street performer, director of ‘Darwin versus Matilda’, award winning comedian, poet and short filmmaker as well as songwriter and the notorious ‘Barry Brown’ in ‘Barry Brown and the GetDown’, Rob’s bold adaptability makes him ‘ready for anything’, including touring Europe with shows in Edinburgh Fringe as part of the madcap ‘Alice Springs Desert Patrol’. He grew up on a farm where “if there’s a job to be done, you just get stuck in and do it!"
