Legendary performance posse FRUMPUS returns with new show LANDED.
Performance ensemble Frumpus return to Illawarra Performing Arts Centre 2 - 4 November with their new work, Landed. Formed in the 1990s, Frumpus includes Lenny Ann Low, Cheryle Moore and Stephanie Hart.

Using physical comedy and found footage and audio, Landed is a pastiche of clowning and satire. Three shifty women, wordless but with plenty to say, take an unnerving and rib-tickling excursion into absurdity.

Cheryle Moore said, “A Frumpus show always aims to push the boundaries of performance, comedy, dance and theatre. We draw on humour and absurdity, the surreal and unexpected beauty and have developed a unique style of pastiche performance/ comedy. We love to make audiences laugh.”

“Our style developed out of a desire to celebrate the introvert, the underdog, the awkward body and moments of failure and success. We never speak, but use a lot of music, film, props, costumes and voice over.”

Their shows, Strumpet, Runt, Crazed and Crazed 2, along with countless short works, have appeared at Performance Space, Carriageworks, Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney Festival, Melbourne Fringe, Adelaide Fringe, Melbourne Festival, Gurlesque, Spicy Friday and ABC TV.

Exploring ideas embedded in pop culture surrounding beauty and the grotesque, their frumpy red tracksuits and audacious silliness became a trademark for pushing boundaries, celebrating the underdog and puncturing ideals of female perfection.

Landed has been developed with the support of Merrigong Theatre Company's Artistic Development Program, MERRIGONGX, since 2021.

Cheryle Moore said, “Landed, a second-stage development of a new show, is part of Merrigong Theatre’s generous MERRIGONGX program. Building the work has only been possible because of the generosity.”
