About the Show
Come in, find a spot, slip into something more comfortable. Let all those inhibitions go baby, we’re gonna get…pre-colonial.
Join, proud Wiradjuri man Joel Bray and a talented team of collaborators including Carly Sheppard, Dan Newell and Niharika Senepati for a flirty, occasionally filthy and deeply passionate look at the true history of sensuality ‘down under’.
Through painstaking research and personal reflection, the team delve deep into the deliberately misrepresented practices of ceremony to reimagine the songs, dances, partying and perhaps something a little sexier.
Rejecting the white, Christian, ‘straight’-jacket of sexual politics in Australia, this provocative performance blends cabaret, comedy, and choreography to tempt you to take part in this queering and radical reexamination of our close personal histories.
Considerable Sexual License is a playful invitation to explore your own history and relationship to sex, sexuality and personal freedom, and a celebration of Country, community, consent and kinship.
