If anyone has seen my facebook, instagram or twitter feeds lately they will know… I love UNICORNS! So when I saw that there was a show called “I am not a Unicorn!” I was a little more than intrigued.
Who doesn’t want to be a unicorn! Well! Emma J Hawkins doesn’t, at least, she doesn’t want to be referred to as one ( between you and I, she also thinks they are quite awesome.) Emma has made an incredible festival show that I got to see at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival last year. It’s got fairytales, unicorns, laughs, poingant moments and lots of suprises in store. And now… Adelaide Fringe, it’s your turn!
Don’t miss this show – here’s a little bit more:
Come and get lost down the rabbit hole with Emma J Hawkins, where Alice is probably drunk playing cards with Goldilocks and the three bears.
I am not a Unicorn! will debut at Adelaide Fringe 2016 at The Royal Croquet Club, 9pm, 12-21 February, 2016 (excluding Monday’s.) There will be an auslan interpreted show held on the 19 February at 9pm.
I am not a Unicorn! is peppered with moments so immersive that the audience truly gets to feel what it is like to walk in a short statured person’s shoes. Experience an engaging and light hearted look at life lived at 103cm short.
Emma is a keen supporter and advocate for fair representation of diversity in Australian performing arts specifically for artists with a disability. Although the show is often tongue in cheek and light, Emma also hopes to raise awareness for the acceptance of disabilities in the community and the perception of what is ‘normal’.
Emma J Hawkins enjoyed a magnificent debut at Melbourne International Comedy Festival in 2015 with reviews including:
