Kyra Belford-Thomas is the writer/director of Gatho At Mine, a new theatre piece playing at The Hayman Theatre at Curtin University as part of FRINGEWORLD 2022. We caught up ahead of the show to see what audiences can expect.
What is your show about?
Gatho At Mine is about those awkward teenage years when you’re no longer a kid, but you’re not yet an adult. It deals with all the humour, and more difficult moments of finding your place in the world.
Favourite part of the show, no spoilers!
There are some very awkward dance moves in the show that always make me laugh.
These are unprecedented times, how does it feel to be a performer in 2022?
I just feel so lucky to be able to create work, and have audiences come along to see it. It’s never a certainty so we are so grateful for each opportunity.
Apart from your show, what other shows would you recommend?
I have seen some amazing shows this Fringe season, but I would definitely head along to the two other shows performing at the Hayman Theatre with us – Mechanical Man and Sweating Like a Stuck Pig.
Describe your show in 3 words:
Endearing, fun, confronting
You can catch Gatho At Mine at The Hayman Theatre until 12th February 2022. TICKETS
