A cycle of song not sung but spoken with bits of sound from the living room. Anarchic, poetic, and semi-autobiographical, Pancake Opus captures the isolation of modern life. With sound creation and vocal manipulation by Raya Slavin, glowing design by Bronwyn Pringle, Emily Barrie and Morwenna Schenck and dramaturgy by Kerith Manderson-Galvin, Pancake Opus is a hilarious and tragic tribute to loneliness, anxiety, memory and the tyranny of hungry children with ‘audience participation of the best kind at the end’. Recreated from Pancake Opus 100 in 2015, made possible through many generous supporters via pozzible. This production contains language and adult themes and may not be suitable for children.

 

By the end of the performance Long’s confident charismatic steering of the show has transformed her audience into a bunch of children eating if not out of her hand, well at least off her plate. 
– Amelia Swan, Arts Hub

I was intrigued and kept engaged throughout with the clever use of space, props, sound, smell, lighting and audience participation right to the bitter sweet delicious end 
– Elizabeth Semmel, Melbourne Observer

 

The clinks, cracks, splashes and sizzles that ensue will trigger back-of-the-neck tingles, and there’s audience participation of the best kind at the end.
– Stephanie Liew: The Music
