About the Show
Joel Bray is black. Well, he’s white, but black. Y’know? He’s trapped in a hotel room somewhere in Melbourne and you, the audience, are trapped with him. Pull on a bathrobe and share a uniquely immersive and intimate encounter with Bray in the hilarious and revelatory Biladurang.
In this nowhere place Bray takes a pause, looks over his shoulder and takes a good look at his life, asking: ‘Is this where I am supposed to be? Is this who I am supposed to be? What is all this? The drugs? The sex? The cigarettes?’
Biladurang is loosely based on the traditional story of the platypus. It’s a story Bray grew up hearing, identifying with this mutant offspring who doesn’t seem to belong and finds himself roaming in search of a home. This award-winning confessional solo is physical, tender, funny and dark. It’s the perfect dance-theatre one-night stand.
