What I Did On My Pandemic

My Year with Herman Melville, Samuel Beckett, Unarmed Training and Alonzo Johnson

Robert's year started doing unarmed civilian peacekeeper training in the midst of a bushfire in Victoria … and it just got weirder.

While others took to the bottle, Robert spent lockdown getting drunk on ideas, on language, on the possibility of the present moment.

Part talk, part performance, part fund-raiser for his overseas peacekeeping deployment in 2021/22. (Seriously. Bring your credit card.)

50 minutes of ideas, surprises, laughs, and even a competition!



"Jarman’s gift for illuminating interior lives is matched by skilful deployment of dramatic gears: the audience member is drawn in, lead down a pathway, the light is switched on – revelation. It’s beautifully done.”
