After a decade in 'voluntary exile', Australian/New Yorker, Max Sharam returns, armed with a new EP & projector to perform  her absurd animated 'autobiofiction'. Bushpygmalion synthesizes 15 years of original concerts, comedy and theatrical performances.

Butterfly Suicide

We map the migration & metamorphosis of an eccentric Opera singer who falls into a fantasy existence after being turned away from an audition for Madam Butterfly. We track the monarchs confusion across continents, before our Diva lands in Manhattan & meets her end, on a Subway in Soho, finally making headlines worldwide. Wacky & Theatrical.


'Kooking Up A Storm', Max spills cleavage, wine, song —& unrehearsed honesty— everywhere. She talks of sauteéd reindeer, snails & frog legs in white wine. Oh dear. She drinks too much moselle…This is no cooking show.

Another Suitcase

Fresh from Berlin, Max Sharam bursts into the cabaret scene with wit & wickedness; Songs and Stories from her Suitcase…(Sharam has a lisp). Two exciting hours of comedy and great music explode onto the stage at a venue that fits!


A  journey from Ballarat to Broadway as the glamorous and amorous Max Sharam recounts her bizarre adventures from Pop Stardom to burn out in La La Land.

Sleeping Beauties

The Girl Behind the White Picket Fence Film

Filmed with Polaroid and Super-8 footage, overlaid with poetic VO monologue, this feature film creates a dynamic kaleidoscope of words and pictures, a dreamy tale that channels Mallick, Van Sant, and pages torn from a lonely girl's journal. Actors; Udo Kier, Radha Mitchell, Max Sharam.

A Million Year Girl

Raw. Real.
