Old caravan gets new life at Woodford Folk Festival
THREE Brisbane performance artists are breathing new life into an old caravan at the Woodford Folk Festival.
The Travelling Sisters have been given an artist residency of sorts in the caravan many festival regulars would know as the former home of clowns Wacko and Blotto.
The trio was given funds to revamp the tired old caravan, transforming it into a stylish setting for their nightly performances.
"The caravan has been here for a really long time and has been used for all different performances over the years," performer Laura Trenerry told The Daily.
"We wanted to make it really cosy and beautiful and versatile as well, since we do a lot of different characters."
The comedy trio will host a "dinner party" variety show each night over the course of the festival.
"It's a mix of music, character sketches, improvisation and audience interaction," Ms Trenerry said.
"For example, we've got a dating show where we get people up (from the audience).
"We change characters throughout the show and we play original songs as well."
The trio has previously performed at Brisbane's Anywhere Theatre Festival and recently returned from their first sold-out show in Sydney. The Travelling Sisters can be seen daily at their caravan in Little Tokyo.
