Introducing RRAMP… A tall, lonesome lady-of-the-house lives with the
collections and memories that she stores in jars in the rooms of her big house.
She has procured two unsuspecting members to join her band. Featuring
Christine Johnston as the Collector, Lisa O’Neill as the dancing Archivist, her
much shorter personal assistant, and Peter Nelson as the Electrocrat.
Exquisitely animated by Ahmarnya Price, RRAMP is a hard-hitting electronica
dance metal rock set reflecting on unexpected and compelling stories of
archives, collections, pets, childhood imaginings and human frailty. Selections
- collections - recollections... Sharp as ice and bittersweet.

Introducing RRAMP… A tall, lonesome lady-of-the-house lives with the
collections and memories that she stores in her jars in the rooms of her big
house. She has procured two unsuspecting members to join her band.
Christine Johnston the Collector, with Lisa O’Neill, as the dancing Archivist,
her much shorter PA, ever willing to be of assistance but off on her own
curious bends; and Peter Nelson as the Electrocrat… behind his bank of
sound technology, helping the Collector live her dream. The band members
live in her big house free of board… in exchange for filing, archival assistance,
basic administration, technical upgrades, music, dance, to change light bulbs
and to be a listening ear as she reminisces through her collections.
Exquisitely animated by Ahmarnya Price, RRAMP is an electronica dance

collections, pets, childhood imaginings and human frailty. Selections collections - recollections... Sharp as ice and bittersweet.

laugh, you’ll cry and you’ll ROCK!

These artists talent for trail-blazing their way across the bone-littered
landscape of performance art, hacking through mediocrity with their own
particular brand of brilliance seems endless.

Review Quotes
3 please
When they team up and begin a new work such as RRAMP - the community
always knows there is something very special, quirky and honed coming...
Dr. Keith Armstrong – Interdisciplinary Media Artist
No one wanted the show to finish - it rolled with power from its outset - at
times as sharp as ice - with riffingly macho guitar lines, stridently accentuated
performance moves and acutely rendered 'now, today' look graphics…

The Brisbane Powerhouse commissioned the artists in 2010 to conceive an
idea for a new performance work, which culminated in the presentation of a
20min creative development showing of RRAMP as part of the 2011 World
Theatre Festival. Following this the artists received further funding through the
state government to complete the performance work for it’s inaugural
presentation with Mobile States.
