Phoebe Sullivan and Joe Lui are Perth theatre makers making their mark on the scene. Their devised work, The Ugly is currently on at The Blue Room Theatre as part of their Summer Nights programme. We caught up with them to see what the show is going to be like.
What is your show about?
Joe: The Ugly is about desire and the reasons beneath.
It is about why we want who we want, and who we don’t want
It is also, and mainly, about how hot we both are, which is to say: extremely.
Favourite part of the show, no spoilers!
Phoebe: At one point in the show, I yell out in a moment of ecstasy, “Oh yes – pound my bell curve”! And I really love that bit.
Joe: My favourite part is when Phoebe talks about her desire.
How important is the Summer Nights program to the Perth Theatre scene?
Phoebe: It’s always a privilege to be able to put on work at a venue you know will support its artists, and one that also has such a strong connection with their audience.
Apart from your show, what other Summer Nights shows would you recommend?
Joe: Salome Delta.
Phoebe: Another non Summer Nights show would be, “Kind Regards, Michelle Aitken”
