Winner: Melbourne Fringe Tour Ready Award.
Winner: Best Cabaret Perth Fringe.
Winner: Green Room Cabaret Innovation Award.
With ceremonial precision and deranged wit, Performance Artist BETTY GRUMBLE enslaves her audience with a powerful call to arms as she raptures in the complexity of the woman body as a political site.
A maniacal Feminist contagion and ecosexual, her award winning work has been critically lauded across the board. From the polished stages of Belvoir St Theatre and Sydney Opera House, to the swampy dens of Sydney’s Queer Underground, the reception of her relentless persona is unanimous- BETTY GRUMBLE is WOMAN. Hear her ROAR. Are you Betty to Grumble?
