Cabaret, Activism and Theatre
Hosts Linda and Mark got fancy and went to the theatre on Sunday night. They were so enthralled by the story and show they invited two of the devisors of the show to join them during this program.
Their guests are La Silhouette director/devisor Daniel Gough, and actor/devisor Esther Dougherty from the Sui Ensemble.
La Silhouette was an immersive theatre experience set inside a Brisbane cabaret club. The audience was inside the club setting and interacted with the performers and environment.
La Silhouette explored the queer history of Brisbane, revealing the dark past when homosexuality was illegal, and the current days when the fight for acceptance continues.
Corruption and police corruption are pretty strong themes in the show, as they been in Queensland for a long time.
Also Linda spoke to Robin Taubenfeld about a picnic on July 4th American Independence day held by the fictional character Granny Smith. Granny Smith ‘celebrates’ American imperialism in ‘Ausmerica‘ and the world.
Music from Faggot Fairys, Punk Flamingo, and Love Moves.
