Hard To Reach Places

Restless, anxious and strangely liberated by having no life plan; she wonders is everyone else faking it too?

A day in a woman’s life is played out non-sequentially as she navigates the challenges of parenting, relationships, show business, visible ageing and the unrealistic expectations she places on herself and others.

This new solo work combines circus, movement, text and sound in a darkly humorous, irreverent and personal insight into one person’s daily experiences and the chaos that ensues from some questionable life choices.

This production coincides with and celebrates International Women’s Day, 8 March.

“…the most well-integrated, and most personal, work I’ve seen from an individual circus artist – an autobiographical solo show that mingles theatre, clowning, music and a killer hoop routine with infectious energy, commanding presence and the lightest of comic touches” – The Age ★★★★½

“Lumb has the audience eating out of the palm of her hand” – The Age ★★★★½

“Smart, funny and wise, Hard To Reach Places matches sublime physical skills with humour and emotional intelligence… an intimate, and powerfully authentic, self-portrait” – The Age ★★★★½
