Salty


  • The Butterfly Club Carson Place Melbourne, VIC, 3000 Australia (map)

Two-time Melbourne Fringe award-winner Shannan Lim and his spook buddies Jayde Harding and Tye Norman vomit three short, interconnected horror-comedy plays—contemporary slants on the lurid demons of Singaporean-Malay mythology.

Accompanied by neat video projections, it features a curious stillborn fetus, a slippery oily man nobody can catch, and a smouldering sex vampire looking for somebody to impregnate her.

In Singaporean folklore, salt is the currency of the afterlife. This production, together with acclaimed Asian Ghost-ery Store and upcoming The Yonder, are part of a series that looks at cultural identity with absurdity and play.

“Lim is a very physical performer whose sense of humour and timing catches us off guard.” - Perth Arts Live

“Intelligent, witty and challenging in turns… an excellent piece of theatre.” ★★★★ - The Age (Asian Ghost-ery Store)
