Diverse in style, the works presented in FLUORESCENT are threaded together on themes of identity and place, exploring interfaces between deeply personal experience and the traumas and neuroses of nations.
The works showcase, CONSTRUCTION SIGHT and YAY FOR CANE TOADS!
A selection of three short, freshly made works.
• HE, by Salvadorian-Australian theatre practitioner Rodrigo Calderón is a reckoning with the waters of troubled masculinity in a sleepy coastal town, on one side of the Pacific or another.
• UNEARTHED from First Nations (US) queer visionary and drag artist Lindsey Stillwell is a story told to her infant daughter of their escape from violence, and the creation of their new life together.
• SAME GOD LAST NIGHT from Nambour born William Foley is his debut as a playwright – a brave and poetic coming out, in more ways than one.
YAY FOR CANE TOADS!
An immersive tea party experience that get’s stuck into that pantry full of stale, unfinished business, pulls out a desiccated rat and some sugar.
Locally grown writer and theatre maker Kendra Keller (aka Lady Longdrop) is a whitefella wrestling it out with deep-tissue questions around colonial-capitalist barbarity, normalcy, amnesia and arrival. She brings this award winning work home for its Qld premiere.
Ticketing for FLUORESCENT is based on ‘your hourly rate of pay’, that is maximising accessibility whilst striving to pay artists as much as other workers who wear florescent. Choose to pay $48.50, $28.50, $18.50 or $13.50.
Bookings for all shows and events are essential. Everyone is welcome. Wear your masks, and your hi-vis, or whatever, or nothing. Express yourself! We look forward to seeing you there.
