La Nonna

Nonna's Got Something to Say!
Presented by La Mama Theatre
 
31 Jan – 4 Feb

Duration: 60 mins
La Mama Theatre, 205 Faraday St, Carlton

Hot like a bowl of Sicilian pasta, La Nonna is a brand new cabaret-cum-Italian restaurant extravaganza - messy, warming and full of gluten. Let Nonna impart her wisdom on you whether you want it or not. Join her as she grapples with tradition in a fast changing world and reflects on a life divided by two homes: she's both and neither Italian and Australian, she's just... Nonna!

Having seen the world undergo tremendous change, Nonna has some unique perspectives on life. Whether it's family, migration, culture or food, she's seen a lot. There's been beef with bitter old nuns, mess with Mediterranean machismo, fights against food shortage, battles with the "Aussie bloke", and a line of grandchildren that extends out the door. All the while struggling to find just where she belongs.

La Nonna is a piece created by the queer grandson of an exceptionally strong, Italian woman. It is a rediscovery of the past, a herstory largely forgotten, and homage to a woman who never asked for one. Join Nonna as she navigates across continents and identities. Let her impart some of the wisdom she's picked up along the way. And dance with her to the bangers of a soundtrack by Italy's greatest divas: Arena, Imbruglia and Grande!

Better come with a full appetite, Nonna will be throwing a feast to satisfy you for a month.
