Recently in recovery after a courageous battle against ovarian cancer, Candy Royalle is getting straight back to the stage with her explosive new show FRIDA PEOPLE, along with collaborators Sloppy Joe and Betty Grumble.

Royalle, Sloppy Joe and Betty Grumble will be bringing their confronting, challenging and highly entertaining show to the Seymour Centre in Sydney on November 20, 27 and December 4, and to the Brisbane Metro Arts on November 29.

A collaborative effort, Royalle’s brand new show, FRIDA PEOPLE explores the human condition through performance, poetry, dance, grotesque burlesque and a musical soundscape spanning funk, soul and experimental chaos.

Earlier this year, in the midst of a national tour, Royalle was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and forced to cancel the remainder of her shows for treatment. Now, having triumphed over cancer and in recovery, this inimitable storyteller, singer and spoken-word performance artist is already itching to get back on stage in front of an audience, where she belongs.

FRIDA PEOPLE also features musical trio, Sloppy Joe and self-proclaimed surreal showgirl, Betty Grumble. Betty Grumble is “Australia’s obscene beauty queen,” whose performances focus on the female body as a site for cathartic storytelling, metamorphosis and joy. Sloppy Joe have been playing together for 15 years and are predominantly an improvisational band, making every show that they play slightly different and always unpredictable.

Royalle recognises that poetry is generally considered to be quite serious. Her efforts to collaborate with Sloppy Joe with their funk and soul inspired music, as well as Betty Grumble with her grotesque burlesque and dance-based performances, aims to make poetry more accessible.

FRIDA PEOPLE is intelligent entertainment. An engaging creative collaboration that traverses the human condition, aiming to cover as wide a variety of intense emotions as possible.

Curious to find out how poetry, funk and soul-inspired music, and grotesque burlesque could possibly work together all on the one stage? Craving a challenge and to see a performance that’s packed with high energy, intensity and confronting questions? Hoping to be engaged and inspired by art at the same time? Don’t miss FRIDA PEOPLE.

Cost: $30 Unwaged / $35 Waged
