Slowly But Surely

Cabaret • Cross-Artform
South Australia • World Premiere

SLOWLY BUT SURELY is the cabaret love child of poet Gemma Rose Marie Thorne, in partnership with ‘Girl Space’. A line up of entirely queer womxn and nonbinary artists, form an amoeba of poetry, music, and dance to tell a collective story.  Listen, learn, cry and cheer together, release your heart. These are the voices you have been waiting to hear.

Slowly but Surely was the phrase Gemma Rose's father would use to describe her before his sudden passing from a heart attack when she was just 18 years old; what stems from this is the idea that it may take time but we all will bloom regardless of trauma and challenge. The voices chosen are ones from people that have felt pain and grown in response. This is a celebration of survival from powerful young Adelaide womxn through dance poetry music.

Please note: This event has had a venue change from Ancient World'  to 'Goodwood Studio' since the Adelaide Fringe Guide was printed.

Presented by: Gemma Thorne
