AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Extraordinary friendships. Extraordinary women.

'An intricately woven play, Head Full of Love draws a portrait of the relationships that develop at the Alice Springs Beanie Festival. This renowned Central Australian event is an annual pilgrimage for women as diverse and distant as the Anangu and Tjanpi weavers, and Western women from all over the world.

'As secrets are shared and struggles are faced, a tendril of trust begins to develop into an unlikely friendship and the distance between worlds diminishes.

'Directed by Wesley Enoch and starring Colette Mann and Roxanne McDonald, this remarkable production is an invitation to look differently at the possibilities of an everyday item and by extension, our everyday lives.'
