Celeste Barber - Fine, Thanks Live Tour

  • Time(s):7:30pm

Description

Celeste Barber is coming out of her cage, and she’s doing just FINE, THANKS.

Australia’s Queen of Comedy is bored of being stuck at home, and you best believe she’s ready to hit the road again. Her brand-new tour Fine, Thanks is headed to Riverside Theatre on Tuesday 24 May.

Let’s be honest, Celeste has had nothing but time to write, refine and then re-refine Fine, Thanks.

“I’ve been stuck inside staring at a wall for the best part of two years, so trust me when I say I’m ready to pack a suitcase, reacquaint myself with what the inside of a plane looks like and get back on stage,” Celeste says.

“Everyone in my house is sick to death of listening to me bang on so it’s time to find some new ears to chew off. Plus mama’s got bills to pay.”

Fine, Thanks explores and exploits everything from celebrity sex toys to why hot girls can’t dance and details the giddy euphoria and brutal devastation of being invited to Coachella — the same year it was cancelled.

Get your much-needed fix of fun with Celeste in 2022!

Description

Yamaji/Noongar curator Tui Raven has brought together works from First Nations artists across Western Australia, in Collective Ground — the first exhibition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander works acquired through AGWA’s COVID-19 stimulus package. Collective Ground asks the viewer to consider the ground on which they walk. The pandemic has forced us to consider our relationship to the environments in which we live. Many of us have had to adjust from being in wide open spaces to being contained in small spaces. It has been a time to reflect on where we live, and the spaces and places we inhabit, internally and externally. The works in Collective Ground have been curated considering the need to separate some of the works based on subject matter related to men’s and women’s Tjukurba/Tjukurpa (the creation period when ancestor beings created the world). During the Tjukurba ancestral beings left marks on the landscape and this laid out songlines or Creation Lines.
