Birdie and Frog: Picnic Professionals

Owl and the albatross

A story for anyone who has ever felt lost, for those who haven’t been heard, the adults who don’t listen and for anyone waiting for a light to guide them home.

"When I was a kid I wanted to be an astronaut. Like, I just wanted to float in the total vacuum of the universe and watch the stars and aliens and junk like that. You have to have a spaceship or space suit or your brains will explode… which apparently is a bad thing. But like in space, you can say as many swear words as you want and no one will hear you and aliens never ask annoying questions like “are you a girl or a boy?” because they’re too busy planning world domination or something.

I see the stars twinkling in the ocean like a giant wobbly mirror and.. it’s kind of like being in space because I can see the stars popping up everywhere... Unfortunately, my brain probably isn’t going to explode from standing here though."

Flake is a work in development for Wild Tongues Productions sharing real experiences of ADHD through a series of theatrical vignettes.

"The clown floats up out of the building, past trees and cities into the sky, they jump across clouds and keep flying until they land on the moon. They jump from planet to planet, collecting stars to fill their pockets, until they collect so many stars that they become a star."

Created by: Alana Dare, Paris Balla and Alanah Parkin

Wild Tongues Productions is Melbourne based theatre company and performance collective dedicated to developing and supporting the work of emerging artists and using pieces such as Flake to raise voices within the community.
