In partnership with the Museum of Geraldton, Euphorium Creative is proud to present ‘An Incompetent Life’.
Anyone who loves a tale of adventure, tragedy and raw life truths will love Brian Poller’s An Incompetent Life.
It tells a story that spans from early life as a six-year-old in rural England through to the unnecessarily traumatic changes brought on by a decision to emigrate to Australia and become ten-pound poms.
Under the roaring Australian sun, a boy fast-becoming a man searches for his own identity in a country of immigrants that in many ways is searching for identity itself. The performance is driven by humour with a dash of pathos and a splash of the absurd - making it a positive outlook on what it’s like to be an immigrant growing up in Oz.
Brian’s storytelling ability is incredibly engaging and will have audience members hanging onto his every word. What makes Brian even more inspiring is his ability to tell a good story and perform live while tackling his speech impediment.
His tales of growing up are relatable in so many unfortunate ways. Hear how his look on life is slightly different to most and how he uses his incompetence to gain success – or at least one version of success.
