Town Folk with Damian Callinan


Town Folk
with Damian Callinan

“Damian Callinan is Australia’s living treasure. His storytelling makes you want to pull up a chair, grab a drink and bunker in because it is always entertaining and often tugs at the heartstrings. 10/10.”
Chelsea McLaren Wodonga

Town Folk tears up the town planner’s blueprints and gets under the
foundations to find out ‘who’ are the bricks and mortar that make up our
community! Comedian Damian Callinan and award winning filmmaker John
Cherry will capture local identities on camera to celebrate the human fabric
of Queanbeyan. These clips will be combined with onstage interactions,
hijinks and stunts to present an entirely curated show based on local
individuals and groups. On location for less than a week, John and Damian
will create a living, vibrant time capsule of each and every place they visit.
Based on surveys sent out to the community prior to the performance,
the Town Folk team will identify subjects for the show, and questions will
be posed. Does Eddie make the best passionfruit sponge in town? What
makes Jenny the Travel Queen of Queanbeyan? Does Peter make the best
sausages? From the pillars of the community to the lovable rogues, Callinan
will introduce you to our fellow town folk in a way you may not expect.
Town Folk combines Callinan’s tailored local observations with a genuine
attempt to patch together a human tapestry of our community.
