You can catch Absolutely in Kalgoorlie at the Goldfields Arts Centre on Tuesday, 26 May at 2pm and Wednesday 27 May at 6pm. (Allan Girod, writer and star of Absolutely is also special guest at writing workshops – details here)
As they say, Absolutely is “a giant-hearted story from a giant-sized story teller. Allan Girod, not your average six-foot-nine Australian, goes from be an extreme introvert to performing in Cirque du Soleil. A touching and laugh out-loud tale. Sometimes the best place to belong is where the unexpected takes you.”
Absolutely is a masterful piece of theatre with themes of identity, belonging, adversity and hope that resonate long after the performance. The audience is transported from Perth’s darkest suburbia to a rural town to inside the mind of a struggling performer and to a finale alongside him on a grandiose big top stage. A memorable journey of the heart both aching and uplifting leaves audiences inspired by a sense of the familiar and surprising.
At six-foot-nine, with everybody saying “You should play basketball”, Allan’s journey into performing is not the typical tale. Absolutely threads together these incidents, both unfortunate and laughable, as he finds himself pursuing a path he never imagined.
