Performed and written by Marg Dobson, Picture Her returns to the Ballarat International Foto Biennale as a full-length theatre show featuring Australian women photographers and one of Ballarat’s first, Daisy Harriett Llewelyn.

A fun-filled escapade of mystery and surprise, we invite you to join in the search for Ms Daisy and be captivated by Dobson’s innovative storytelling, featuring projections, music and song. Marg Dobson and Director, Glynis Angell bring a lifetime of skill and experience in their crafting of this theatrical gem, featuring a film noir flavour and a comic Detective in this true Ballarat story.

Marg Dobson, Writer and Performer
Marg’s experience in theatre, cabaret and street theatre at Arts Festivals and Fringe Festivals often includes mixing genres of live performance to make assessable and interactive adventures for audiences.  From community and environmental theatre, The Teabags Marching Band, solo shows in Fringe Festivals, to cabaret with The Romanoffs and projects in Ballarat like the Women of the Goldfields performed in 2014.  Her writing and performing work is often inspired by researching to uncover ‘untold stories’ and using comedy and music to bring those stories to life, acknowledging the unacknowledged.
