Juniper Wilde, originally Sadie Smith, was raised by her single mother in Ballina Shire’s Pagan 'White Light' community. Her estranged father, a local politician, distanced himself from the two soon after Sadie was born in a full moon ceremony. This small town ingenue was hailed by many in the community as the Stardust child and rose to fame at an early age.

By the age of 16 Sadie Smith had released a self- titled pagan pop album gaining her star shine status throughout her community and her hit single '(I'm Addicted To Your) Wolf Blood Love' lasted six weeks at the top of Estonia's pop charts.

After a bit part on Neighbours, and rebranding herself as Juniper Wilde, she skyrocketed to mainstream success.

Her turbulent journey in the spotlight has seen a constant reimagining of self and sound. Known as an outspoken boundary pusher, Wilde’s career imploded in a scandalous public downfall.

Now, after being prematurely discharged from rehab, pop sensation Juniper Wilde is back. Vivacious, bold and full of contradictions, the star returns with a vengeance and a thinly veiled attempt at sanity. The queen of reinvention bares all in this exclusive, one night tell all, pop-up variety show extravaganza. As the current incarnation of Wilde would say 'F*%k the zeitgeist, this is art'.

Alexandra Hines is a Melbourne-based actor, comedian and theatre maker. As a performer Alex has been involved in a number of projects including: Forrestgreene (2016 Williamsburg Film Festival) Rolling Stoned (2015 Cannes Film Festival), Wildflowers (Best Play and National Finalist in the Short & Sweet Festival) and The Catalogue Life (Best Play in 48 hour play project for FAST).

2017 marked Alex's debut on prime time Australian television when an extremely brief segment of a street interview about her thoughts on Medicare aired on A Current Affair.
