The Melbourne Fringe Festival Attracts The Right Kind Of Weird.
Melbourne’s strongest festival of the unusual has the honour of helping unveil their most ominous exhibitors so far.
The Baby Farmer, a confronting yet ambitious work by Australia’s most bizarre performers, The Laudanum Project, is here. Presented as a one act play and an artbased book (with illustrations by Chloe Neath) this story of a helpless child and her unbalanced mother forms an ever-shifting musical tapestry, a tale of lost innocence and the nature of evil.
With The Baby Farmer, The Laudanum Project have conjured up a somber meditation on destiny and the darkened realms of childhood fear that blurs the lines between dreams and reality and whispers to the madness that hides within us all.
September 27 – 30
