Pull My Strings and I Will Play for You

Hello, my name is Olga Nowicka. I’m from a town in Poland that you’ve probably never heard of.

And I’m Katie Beckett. I’m from Muruwari country, up north. Betcha never heard of Muruwari either.

Where are you fellas from?

Join us at our new show, Pull My Strings and I will Play For You. It’s an up-close guided tour through the criss-crossing, chalk-drawn streets of our memories. Wander through Szczecin, have a Zywiec beer, then pop down to Ipswich for fish and chips – Hi Pauline! – then off to Warsawa for the best pierogi … keep up, don’t get lost! But if you do get lost, remember to keep the river on your left … and don’t let anyone see you…

In this unique interactive storytelling experience, we use visual art, sensory theatre, whimsical mapping and miles of autobiography to take you into the heart of our worlds. As you start to find out about our family histories, ask yourself – was it Olga or Katie’s grandma who had to hide her kids in the fireplace and avoid the authorities?

We both live in Australia, for now. But you know, sometimes we feel like we’re on the outside looking in, and we keep asking ourselves:

How do I fit in? Where do I fit in? What am I willing to give up to fit in?
