Melbourne-based performance artist Nicola Gunn combines text and choreography to create contemporary performance praised as“tantalising, entertaining, ridiculous, and often bewildering in the best possible way” (Herald Sun).
A confrontational reflection on peace and conflict, moral relativism, and the very function of art, Piece for Person and Ghetto Blaster is inspired by an incident between a man, a woman, and a duck that touches upon the complex realms of human behavior.
In her solo Pillow debut, Gunn slips across tempos, ideas, and performance modes—from theater to dance to performance art and back again—challenging how we see art, the world, violence, and each other.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT NICOLA GUNN
“Nicola Gunn’s theatre is tantalizing, entertaining, ridiculous and often bewildering in the best possible way. This marvellously eccentric, charming and mischievous performer has created yet another stylish, inventive and startling work…mesmerising and unforgettable.”
“Comic Genius… Gunn’s text is intricate and often brilliant, full of unpredictable digressions and curious factoids. It’s the verbal equivalent of skimming stones over water.”
“Mordantly witty, and wittily digressive.”
At Doris Duke Theatre: Jul 4 - Jul 8
