Published with Toxic by Maryanne Lynch

Chutney is sweet, bitter, spicy, and special. A relationship of flavours, not unlike the unions humankind share.

Journey to the mythical South-Eastern land of Loomagado, where the relationship between a father and daughter is complex and strained. Living in a foreign place with an unknown culture has begun to take its toll, and parent-sibling rivalry is at its peak.

Using puppetry, music, dance, and drama, Chutney takes us on an allegorical exploration of relationship – between father and daughter, and between Australia and our near-Northern neighbours.

Chutney is influenced by Kabuki, Balinese dance, mime, and other Eastern music and movement techniques.
