HOMAGE TO BRICOLAGE to Explore the Self at The Butterfly Club

Written, directed and performed by Mark J Wilson (Welcome to Woop Woop, Dead Letter Office) and developed in conjunction with Emilie Collier (RN, La Mama) & Angus Cameron (MTC, Malthouse) Homage to Bricolage is a new production that questions concepts of 'self' and 'identity' in online worlds.

"I've always loved songwriting and performing, the songs are partly autobiographical and partly my observations of modern life. I'd been tinkering with different elements for years, and it finally feels like the right time to bring it all together," says Wilson. "This is my signature work, bricolage is the process of bringing together diverse fragments to make up a larger story". Using projection and remix, Wilson performs against a dynamic and immersive backdrop. "The stage becomes a canvas as image, text, music and media create a surreal rainbow world," he says.

Wilson powerfully delivers his smart original songs, taking audiences on a journey as he reflects on identity, love, modern life, and politics. "It's purposefully confronting at times, absurdly funny at others". Wilson includes a reflection on the Safe Schools program and trying not to think about the politician George Christensen's penis. "In today's climate I felt that my art must contribute to the political discourse" says Wilson. But what does Shakespeare have to do with an insatiable hunger for 'The Colonel's' original chicken combo? Find out, in Homage To Bricolage, 3 nights only, at The Butterfly Club.
