Earth Mother Death Mother is the new performance by a group of gothic belly dancers at the Dunsborough Hall on Saturday, March 2, for LiveLighter Busselton Fringe festival.

Fresh from a debut performance at Bunbury Fringe, the show investigates the complex and deadly relationship of humanity with our home, the Earth.

“Earth Mother Death Mother is centred on our environment, which can be a beautiful and also terrifying place,” producer Nina Smith said.

“Stories are how we understand our world — we need new stories to be able to create change. The audience at our debut show connected with us in a wonderful way, and we’re excited to perform again at Busselton Fringe.”

The show has been choreographed, produced and costumed by the Sisters of Ishtar, a Donnybrook belly dance troupe which specialises in experimental and gothic belly dance.

Tickets are $25 from the LiveLighter Busselton Fringe website at busseltonfringe.com. au.
