Forget sex, sausages sell. The question is, d'ya want dead horse with that? Get sold on a one way ticket to the end of the line and experience the Gateway to the Peninsula in all it's guts and glory. Hilarious. Heart-warming. Edgy. Raw. Frankston the ugly cousin we love to hate, is celebrated through the eyes of long time local, Noel who'll introduce to you his home town.
Nel Da Silva, a first-generation Blasian Australian is a one- woman powerhouse, storytelling through performance art, spoken word, film & neo-burlesque vignettes of defining moments growing up in Funkytown, Stabbston, Franga (you know where). When she's not life modelling with her 9 ft python or running marathons to raise money and
awareness for the Cathy Freeman Foundation this Surfcoast mother-of-five is creating performance art outside of the breakfast-box that leaves audiences jaw-dropped and salivating.
“There's no place like home and Frankston is truly a diamond in the rough,” says Nel who credits her break in television twenty years ago on the ABC to her cultural identity. “I was employed because I looked interesting and spoke like a bogan,” unsure if that was a curse or compliment she ran with it and has not stopped running since.
“Frankston was the perfect pot to mix my Pakistani parents (Chinese and Anglo- Indian/Portugese) values to create a cultural blend that is a common voice for all Aussies. If you're not aboriginal you have the voice of immigrant parents too!” she challenges.
Join Noel (her local alter-ego) and a handful of Franghanistanians as Nel chucks all her art and soul on the barbie for a yarn that'll take your curry breath away.
