Darling, do you think you were a flamenco dancer in a past life?

Through ridiculous and heartbreaking personal stories, SHRAPNEL is a celebration of Natalie Gamsu’s strange and fearless journey from growing up in a Jewish family in South Africa (NAMIBIA) during apartheid, to performing in underground clubs in Johannesburg during the state of emergencies, through psilocybin spiritual journeys into past lives, to arguing about tinned fruit in a customer service centre in Melbourne.

Gamsu (A Very Jewish Christmas Carol, MTC) searches for meaning through diabolically funny anecdotes of tsuris (the yiddish word for pain) in an evening of storytelling directed by Stephen Nicolazzo (Vampire Lesbians of Sodom) and featuring songs in Yiddish, Spanish, and English.
