Too Rude is a collaboration born from artists Emma McManus and Maria White’s participation in the infamous Earlwood Farm Christmas Climate Change Variety Hour and named after the Daily Telegraph’s response to this event. They make hilarious, researched and political performances about themes such as living in cities, cultural policy, and ecologies.
Their first work Never Trust A Creative City premiered in 2018 at Arts House for the Festival of Live Art (FoLA) and toured to Ainslie and Gorman Arts Centres, supported by Arts ACT and Arts House’s Culture Lab. In 2019 this toured to Griffin Theatre’s Batch Festival and the Performance Studies International Conference in Calgary, Canada. Their new work Nature Is Healing was supported through Vitalstatistix hothouse for development Adhocracy resulting in a mini digital outcome here: https://vitalstatistix.com.au/adhocracy-projects/nature-is-healing/
