You better come with a full appetite, because Nonna will be throwing a feast to satisfy you for a month.
Hot like a bowl of Sicilian pasta, La Nonna is a cabaret-cum-Italian restaurant extravaganza – messy, warming and full of gluten. Let Nonna impart her wisdom, whether you want it or not.
Join her as she grapples with tradition in a fast changing world and reflects on a life divided between being neither Italian nor Australian, she’s just…Nonna!
La Nonna is a rediscovery of the past, a herstory largely forgotten, and homage to a woman who never asked for one. Join Nonna as she navigates continents and identities and dance with her to the bangers of Italy’s greatest divas: Arena, Imbruglia, Grande.
La Nonna acknowledges she is a guest on the sacred, stolen land of the Wurundjeri people. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander audience members are welcome to free tickets for this performance. Please use the code word ALWAYS at checkout.
