MELBOURNE FRINGE SEASON SEPT 22 - 26 at GASWORKS, MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA

They Say She's Different (TSSD) is Immersive Cinematic Theatre of the highest order! This is the unknown story of the controversial and hugely influential original FUNK-ROCK diva Betty Mabry Davis. This experience takes you back to the 70's where sex sells, music is god, women are shouting out, change is constant, and a good time is what counts. Betty Davis, a singer, song writer, producer, model and club owner, embodied this change simply because her raw spirit and talent lived by it. Briefly married to Miles Davis, friends with Jimi Hendirx, writing music with the Sly Family and The Pointer sisters to name just a few. Betty was the celebrity's celebrity, but the American pubic deemed her music as too edgy, the black community denounced her bad girl image, and the music industry dropped her cold. She was to remain largely unknown in American music histroy. Through Betty's early music TSSD takes a glimpse into the heady world of music, women' liberation and a changing society as we re-imagines what a Betty Davis gig might have been like.

It will be edgy. It will be gritty. It will be loud and dirty. It will be funk and funky. This is the sound of music changing.
