Flawed ____ like a b_y is a queer, sexy and experimental show about one person’s story of being gay and growing up in a homophobic part of Australia. Complete with a banging soundtrack, the show deals heavily with homophobia, sexual assault, parental relationships and identity and is a work that is aligned with the current queer movement pushing for greater visibility and equality for the LGBTQ+ community. Flawed is set to challenge the pathological homophobia in Australian society.
The work was devised from autobiographical text looking at oppression, relationships, the beach, love, sex and violence through a queer Australians lens. The work tackles the politics of what it means to be a ‘boy’ and the societal pressure to conform and subscribe to pre existing ways of existence.
Performed by Rebecca Montalti, Bj McNeill & Jye Tshappeller
Shows run Tuesday 5th – March – 10th March at 6pm each day in the Owl Room of Gluttony Masonic Lodge.
