★★★★★ - Glam Adelaide ★★★★★ - Chuck Moore Reviews

Single, 32, and with her biological clock ticking, Erin’s eggs — according to a Facebook ad — are “dying off.” For $15k she could freeze them, but are there other options? Does she even want a child? Is she just buying into social pressures and guilt-laden marketing? By the time she makes a choice, will it already be too late?

Winner of the 2022 NZ Fringe Tour Ready Award and 2021 Hollywood Fringe Best Dance, as well as numerous five-star reviews, EGG is a hilarious, topical, and moving new solo work from award-winning performer Erin Fowler (Best Dance, 2019 & Made in Adelaide, 2020). Directed by illustrious clown Hew Parham, EGG combines dance, clowning, some bagpipes, a cheeky life-sized egg and a pulsating 80s soundtrack. It questions all things fertility and motherhood in a powerful exploration of how we make (and live with) the big decisions in life.

Erin Fowler is an Australian artist working across the dance, physical theatre, music and film industries. She creates and presents deeply feminine, audience-driven, socially-minded work that blends together an eclectic mix of contemporary dance, theatre, music, clowning and martial arts. Issues of femininity and the environment are common themes of her work.
