Michelle Zahner, fresh off her tour of Australia is bringing ‘A Modern Guide to Heroism & Sidekickery’ back to London for one last show, ahead of her Edinburgh Fringe season. Really. She’s serious this time. It really is the last chance.
Her one-woman whirlwind of theatre, spoken word, comedy, shadow puppetry and movement back is asking how being a ‘superhero’ in the ‘real world’ really works. How do you rescue people from depression, or a broken friendship? How do you fight a cyclone, or a rabid llama, or the patriarchy? What do you call a boy damsel? And shouldn’t there be a villain somewhere?
With limited powers and more responsibility than she wants she finds herself dealing with media hype, impossible expectations, protest groups and sponsorship deals. Batman never had to deal with this shit.
