Event Details

Picture Her is a theatre show that takes the audience on an investigative performance adventure unearthing a multitude of unknown, forgotten and uncelebrated Australian women photographers from 1850 to the present day. The scene is set: a chance encounter with a pile of discarded glass plate photo negatives sends our sleuthing protagonist on an extensive investigation to uncover the identity of the mystery artist. After sifting through public records and newspaper archives, the works are identified as those of photographer Daisy Harriet Llewelyn, who worked in Ballarat in the 1920s.
Through tall tales and true stories, the audience joins in the hunt, filled with happenstance, dead ends, loose ends, unexpected bends and clues looking for Daisy.
WHEN: Friday 26 February, 7.30pm and Saturday 27 February, 5pm and 7.30pm
VENUE: Performance Space and Roslyn Smorgon Gallery
Live theatre audience: Full $25 / Concession $15
Live streaming: $10
