This Woman’s Work – The Kate Bush Rock Show

What’s the central premise of your show? Fun – we’re not just celebrating Kate Bush, we’re celebrating what it means to be a Kate Bush fan. She’s an artist that inspires individuality and uninhibited self-expression.

Is your show based on your true-life experiences? Well, the true-life experiences of sending our flatmates and neighbours crazy, bursting into song and dance at the most inappropriate moments.

What do you want the audience to take away from your show? I want them to want to dance and sing all the way home. And maybe fall in love with other Kate Bush songs they hadn’t heard before, or the way we play them. There’s a lot of ‘heat’ in Kate’s music, a kind of euphoria. I’ve got a fabulous band to help me bring this element out. Big drums, screaming guitar, funky bass and killer backing vocals.

What was the creative process like putting the show together? I choose the songs I can’t not do, and then painfully try to whittle them down into a one-hour set. I explore each song deeply, trying them on like a dress, feeling what they feel like and what they mean to me. It turns into a process of self discovery because I start to see a reflection of myself within the songs.

What do you love about performing? Those special moments I get to share with the audience. Maybe we shed a tear or two together or sing at the top of our lungs. It’s a beautiful thing.

This Woman’s Work – the Kate Bush Rock Show will be performed at the Lithuanian Club’s Main Theatre on Friday September 14 at 8pm. Tickets start from $28.
