An inspiring journey into epilepsy awareness and taking control of your own health issues
ELECTRO GIRL will have you in "fits of laughter" at Melbourne Fringe festival
Electro Girl and Nora are coming out of the closet for their very first synapse explosion on a Fringe Festival stage EVER. The show features NORA – my cheeky, outspoken brain puppet – who lights up neurologically and steals the show by taking me to task publicly about my “questionable” life choices.
I cleverly weave stories into my comedic biography about how my triggers – cheap alcohol, drugs, lack of sleep and dysfunctional relationships – help bring on my seizures.
It’s a funny and confronting tale, challenging how the medical fraternity manages epilepsy and shines an electrical spotlight on the lengths that some of us got to in order to hide our imperfections from society.

Epilepsy has a stigma associated to it which creates isolation and fear but it doesn’t have to be this way. It’s time people knew more about the brain and how we have more control over it than we are allowed to believe.
Healing is about choices. Becoming healthy is not just about popping pills and getting check ups from a doctor.Through my book and stage show called ‘ELECTRO GIRL’, I endeavour to empower people to manage their conditions holistically and not to accept that there is only one road to health.

“I guess everyone can relate to this because everyone has something that they rather would like to ignore or change about themselves although it’s obvious that the only way of going forward is accepting and dealing with it.”Markus Jacob
