the old 505 theatre, newtown
We write to you from the trenches of a pernicious war.
We persevere only in the knowledge that our virtuous garden is being tended, cared for and cultivated.
Spring is almost here.
Oh the privilege of Spring.
Yours in truth,
La Femme du Jardin
Join Clockfire Theatre for a world underfoot, where nature sprouts and women wise, write and rise - considerately of course.

With Illustrations by Sunita Lewis
Australian-Indian Sydney based artist and illustrator Sunita Lewis, has worked in collaboration with Clockfire to create a body of work which will be exhibited in the foyer of the Old 505 Theatre prior to the show. Her exhibition is inspired by natural shapes, particularly flora and the female form. The simple act of drawing itself informs her practice of minimalist line work and stippling. Drawing is a meditative activity for her and she is pleased when viewers report that her art has a similar effect on their perception and consciousness.
Limited prints will be available for purchase from Sunita throughout the season.
