Joel Bray | Australia

A dark, funny and intimate solo work by dancer, choreographer and proud Wiradjuri man Joel Bray, performed for an up-close, bathrobe-clad audience in a hotel room.

Inspired by a period of upheaval in his life, and loosely based on the Dreamtime story of the Biladurang – the platypus – the winner of Best Performance at the 2017 Melbourne Fringe is a sexy, tender and affectingly autobiographical piece of dance-theatre about heritage, identity and yearning for home.

As a gay man meeting middle-age, a dancer toiling at the peak of his powers and a Wiradjuri man with ties to Israel and country Australia, Bray took a long look at his life and wondered, “Who am I?” In Biladurang, he chases his demons and goes soul-searching in the neutral space of the hotel room, inspiring audience members to chat, drink and dance together as he weaves his story across every part of the room.

“A fraught, voyeuristic intention that is difficult to watch, but impossible to turn away from” – Stage Whispers

A great show is best accompanied with a fantastic feast. Combine your show ticket with a Festival Feasts dining package with Gowings Bar & Grill for $55 + $1 booking fee.
