The Very Sad Fish Lady
Thursday 5th September - Saturday 19th October 2013
The Very Sad Fish-Lady is a puppet performance of the migration tale of the Fish-lady, created by artist Joy McDonald. The humorous and quirky tale is a fantasy story based on the artist's family and their migration from Greece from an island called Castellorizo, also known as 'the rock' to Canberra. It tells of an aged woman resembling a fish, who is re-united with her family and who bring her to Australia. The story is symbolic representation and interpretation of 'the rock' and the customs of its people.
