fortyfivedownstairs – Shrapnel

by | May 30, 2024

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 Southern 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 searches for meaning through diabolically funny anecdotes of tsures (the Yiddish word for troubles) in an extraordinary, funny and deeply moving performance, featuring songs in Yiddish, Spanish, and English.

Co-written with Ash Flanders, and directed by Stephen Nicolazzo, Shrapnel showcases Gamsu at her finest.
