As part of Darwin Festival, The Style of Life will post articles regarding the ongoing Feast of Music, Theatre, cabaret and more in coordination with TS Publicity.
Today, we look into “Tina C”, an all-American country gal entertainer with a big heart, here to teach us a thing or two about Indigenous and non-Indigenous relations through the power of line dancing, singing and group hugs.
Country music superstar and global icon for the American way of life, Tina C has been to Australia a bunch of times and has figured out that there’s some stuff to work out between the older and newer inhabitants of this country.
Tina’s boundary-pushing, outrageous comedy show Sorry Seems to be The Hardest Word uses the obvious tool to talk this through - the healing power of country music in The Amphitheatre at George’s Green from 20-22 August.
Seriously funny and deadly clever, Tina C is the creation of theatrical innovator and multi award winning comedian Christopher Green who will sashay and sparkle her way into the hearts of Darwin Festival audiences, and no doubt prick some consciences on the way.
In Sorry Seems to be the Hardest Word controversial topics are approached with clever humour, subtle jibes and illuminating hypocrisy, but most importantly at the heart of Tina’s performance is a genuine love of humanity.
Accompanied by acclaimed musician James Henry (grandson of the legendary Jimmy Little), with a special guest cameo from Darwin Larrakia artist Ali Mills, and with her unique mix of biting political satire, glamour and comedy songs, Tina C will make you see our country through new eyes.
