‘Esoteric’ is an honest snapshot of the chaotic world we live in today

What’s the central premise of your show?

Bennie: Esoteric explores the individuals in fringe groups of our society. It looks at the power of belief. The performance also tries to tackle what is “truth” to the individual.

Lauren: How do we know what is truth, what is reality?

If you had to pitch your show to a stranger, what would you say?

Bennie: Hey you! Wanna see me get tortured for a bit? There’s also talk of Queen Elizabeth, Donald Trump, vaccines and a very strange mystery box which may or may not contain the secrets to the universe.

What motivated you to get involved with Melbourne Fringe in the first place?

Bennie: To earn enough money to buy a shipping container full of Nissin noodles (sesame oil). Nissin instant noodles yo.

Lauren: Bennie made me do it! I also want to make my mum proud and get noticed for our work.

What does your show say about society today?

Bennie: “What does your show say about society today?” is not only the greatest question facing our generation, but needs an answer.

Lauren: Esoteric says a lot of things, I guess the biggest one is “how do we perceive truth?”

Esoteric comes to Red Scooter on Thursday September 19 and Friday September 20. Tix start at $15 via the Fringe website.
