One of Australia"s most unique and thrilling performers - Natalie Gamsu (Strictly Ballroom, Ladies in Black) teams up with New York Writer Craig Harwood, ARIA Nominated and Helpmann Award Winning Actor and Musician iOTA (Hedwig & The Angry Inch, Smoke & Mirrors, Mad Max Fury Road) and Multi Award winning Australian Composer and Musical Director Max Lambert (Miracle City, Strictly Ballroom, King Kong) to create an edgy and enigmatic theatre & cabaret piece previewing for a strictly limited Season this April.

This is the hilarious and extraordinary story of Carmen Frida Leon Davidovich, The Love Child of Frida Kahlo and Leon Trotsky. Carmen is complex. She is irreverent. She is salacious. She is bold. She is intersex. And it is the last day of her life.

Conceived by Craig Harwood and Natalie Gamsu, CARMEN is a fascinating, edgy and entertaining story of identity and survival. At the end of her life, Carmen takes us on a reflective journey of discovery - an orphan, a refugee, a hermaphrodite, a human.

CARMEN, LIVE OR DEAD celebrates difference, embracing the feminine and the masculine with joy and life. A story brimming with unyielding authenticity, humour and grace, CARMEN is a unique and gripping theatrical experience that is moving, entertaining and thoroughly liberating!
