Adelaide Fringe

Big Shoes to Fill: An Exposé of a 50 Ft. Woman

Direct from the cabaret circuits of Melbourne, London and Edinburgh, and a critically acclaimed audience hit at the Melbourne Fringe, Anna ‘Pocket Rocket’ Lumb brings her sassy solo show to Adelaide for the first time.

Through circus, dance and cheeky comedy, the Pocket Rocket explores how an over-sized woman, with over-sized issues, copes in a normal-sized world.  How does she get into a taxi, or find shoes to fit? Where does she find places to eat out?  Let alone a date…!

A hilarious parable of strength, fragility, challenge and triumph featuring strongwoman feats, hula hoops, slapstick, lycra, bananas and an eclectic soundtrack including the title track by Mikelangelo and music mixed by DJ Lazer Ferrari.

Exploding onto stages around the world with her charismatic, mischievous and original circus skills, from the Spiegeltent in Adelaide, Melbourne and Brighton (UK), to Londonʼs finest cabarets, Anna ʻPocket Rocketʼ Lumbʼs debut solo show has the ground shaking with anticipation.
