#KickAssREDS: A Tribute To The Red Haired Woman

Red heads unite as a cabaret show celebrating the power of the red headed woman comes to the Rhino Room

Don’t miss the premiere of a new work by South Australian playwright Michèle Saint-Yves and Singer/Songwriter Izzy Jane at the Rhino Room this September.

This unconventional cabaret will take the audience on a journey through the history of women blessed with red hair.

“It’s a well-known fact in creating popular fiction that all the kick-ass girls are redheads!” Says Michèle.

#KickAssREDS ‘Save the Red, Save the Planet’ is set to be a poignant, passionate and hilarious show weaving together three threads that make up the story of the red haired woman – the myths, the science and the personal history.

It may just charm you into reconsidering your idea of what it is to be a ‘Ginger’!”

This new work comes from playwright Michèle Saint-Yves who also directs and stars in it. She says about the piece: “This feels to me like a necessary work. It is what I call a ‘play-baret’ that is forged from the facts of what we have had to deal with in our lives as flame-haired women and presented by 3 different red-headed women. It is about living as a rare woman who speaks to the universality of our human condition. It is a work I wrote in response to the particularity of our time – when Julia Gillard was our Prime Minster – and has become one that reads us as a lightning rod for the history of humanity.”
