Caity Fowler’s stunning original folk-cabaret set for a headline season at The Butterfly Club
Melbourne indie-folk artist Caity Fowler returns to the Butterfly Club with her new show, I Am Another Yourself. After a whirlwind year with her band Playwrite supporting Elbow (UK) on their Australian tour, as well as the release of their glorious debut album Cathedrals, Fowler is set to premiere a stripped back, intimate season of original solo music and anecdotes.
Translated from the ancient Mayan phrase In Lak’ech, I Am Another Yourself is a lyrically insightful and authentically crafted show pondering the age-old philosophy of interconnectedness. Fowler explores the beauty of oneness and the difficulty of separation with nuance and humour.
Fowler boasts an impressive and varied list of stage credits, including lead roles in opera Voicing Emily at the Malthouse Theatre in 2007 and Disney’s High School Musical Live on Stage at Sydney’s Capital Theatre in 2009. She also composed the score and performed in the Australian premiere of The Bridge at Arts Centre Melbourne and La Mama. Fowler’s self-devised work includes cabarets Songs of Instability in 2007, Lists of Invisible Things in 2012 and I, Divine in 2014. She released her debut EP Whitelight Blackdog in 2013. Her original work continues circling back to themes of connection, self-realisation and vulnerability.
Join her in exploring what makes us human, why we love, how we hate and everything in between.
