About this event

For more than three years, Kate Pardey and her camera have been unintentionally creating a photographic survey of the real moments that take place amidst the frenetic fantasy of performance.

Bouncing between the Adelaide and Edinburgh Fringes since 2015 to document the experiences of the friends and performers she loves, Kate has affectionately captured life as an artist. Her uncensored access and genuine connection to the people and places of the series make it a catalogue of the instances in-between -- the times when facades fall and characters become humans.

Showing Up is an insight into the hard work, camaraderie, boredom, isolation, and meaningful relationships that happen on and offstage; a glimpse of all the showing up that has to be done before the showing off can start.

Presented by:
Kate Pardey

Kate Pardey is an Adelaide based photographer, former stage manager and affectionate lover of the arts.
