Butterfly Words

Who says you can't talk to catterpillars?

2021 MELBOURNE FRINGE LOGO_PRIMARY_BLACK.png

Development from embryo, larva, and caterpillar is completed through chrysalis formation and undoubtedly ends with the emergence of an adult butterfly. Humans may share similarities with this corporeal metaphor-phasis. However, we live much longer, and wings may require some assembly.

Josh Moyes knows what it's like to feel alone, dancing from flower to flower to find love, friendship, and acceptance. In his first solo show for Melbourne Fringe, Josh offers a way through the garden. This highly physical, text-based, fruit-4-fruit tale invokes memories from underneath his childhood apple tree. Suspended in silken time, this story weaves together instruments of human connection and forces of change.

An embodiment of "new-age nostalgia", Josh flies towards love and fear with reckless abandon in the hope of giving us all permission to fly on the wings of self-love, finding family through community, and re-parenting our sense of self. Who says you can't talk butterfly words with caterpillars?
