🤩 It’s official -- @sydney_festival 2022 is here and we are thrilled to be part of their program!  Be sure to catch Slow Burn, a new work by Deborah Pollard presented by @qtheatre_ in association with Sydney Festival. It tracks the silent legacy of extreme weather events long after the news crews have moved on. Part stand-up, part home movie night, part gritty realism, this dynamic one-woman show presents an hour of intimate, raw and bitingly honest performance. Playing at @the_joan from 13 - 22 January.  🎟 BOOK NOW sydneyfestival.org.au/events/slow-burn  #2022 #thejoan #arts #art #culture #theartofconnection #penrith #westernsydney #sydney #australia #sydneyfestival #qtheatre #theatre #drama #slowburn #deborahpollard
