Performance poet Sky Loneragan and musician Amy Viola join forces to perform a one-of-a-kind show showcasing their individual talents as well as exploring what can happen together.

Skye Loneragan is an award-winning writer/performer whose work spans theatre, poetry and live art. Skye is currently (not) touring her solo show, Though This Be Madness, but it is due to kick off again in 2022 - a fusion of poetry and performance that questions what delusions we might all share, a fractured tale told through the frame of sleep-deprived mature-age motherhood. She is the creator of the public engagement project, q-poetics (the poet and poetry in places and space of waiting- queues) through which she has worked with audiences at the Commonwealth Games Glasgow, and in various waiting spaces. As well as performing she will be running some free poetry workshops on the days preceding this performance. - More info

Amy is an exciting new solo artist weaving folk, roots and Radiohead together to create songs that express the fragility of life and the beauty that is found in our darkest moments. Her intricate, captivating performances range from hushed moments of intimacy to riotous, raucous hoe-downs, and her musicianship and voice is described as ‘sublime’ by Kate Ceberano. 

Blame Beta-Carotene will be a combination of these two artists. Skye is looking forward to sharing poems from her collection, Blame Beta-carotene - poems about carrots, climate change, soil and sleeping in a swag - along with participants from the poetry workshops who might want to perform.
