All Pearls Want to Return to the Sea, by Julia Campbell

When she returns to her hometown for her mother's funeral, Maggie also takes a fantastical journey through her memories. Written and performed by Julia Campbell, this intimate show uses physical theatre and puppetry to take the audience on a journey under the sea. On the back of Sanctuary (Nominated for Edgiest Show, Nelson Fringe Festival 2015) and Nightmare ("Dense and poetic"- Art Murmurs Wellington Reviews), Sweet Muffin Productions presents "All Pearls Want to Return to the Sea," a new New Zealand theatre piece combining puppetry and physical theatre, which looks at what legacy looks like for the families with Pasifika and Pakeha ancestry.

About Julia Campbell:
I have spent the last decade working as a director, producer, performer and stage manager on theatre projects around New Zealand and Australia. I am currently the Producer for The Lord Lackbeards Touring Company which takes Shakespeare into schools. I am also the Artistic Director of Sweet Muffin Productions where we make quirky physical theatre pieces. As a founding member of Wellington Expressive Arts Collective, I facilitate workshops on Wellness through Creativity. The collective uses theatre exercises and visual arts as well as relaxation and meditations to help participants deal with stress and anxiety in their daily lives. I also have numerous experience facilitating theatre workshops with both adults and children. I teach a weekly adult class on physical theatre at Wellington Actors Dojo.
