Theatre

The Irresistible

Presented by Side Pony Productions & The Last Great Hunt in partnership with Brisbane Powerhouse

The Irresistible is an exploration of the invisible and insidious nature of unconscious bias, told through multiple parallel narratives that intersect through mystery and sci-fi. Locations and time bleed into one another with dream-like fluidity as performers’ transition from one character to the next at breakneck-speed.

Deep in the gloom a phone rings. The voice on the line slips beneath her skin and curls its fingers around his stomach. You can’t see it, you can’t touch it, you can barely feel it. You can’t hold on tight enough.

The Irresistible is a reckless, intoxicating love letter to the subconscious.

Reviews

Brilliant work…This is the reason you go to see live theatre.

ArtsHub

This is theatre with great strength of purpose, and a technical achievement that will leave you gobsmacked. The Irresistible is simply irresistible.

From the Turnstiles

…compelling, entertaining, and even brave in its attempts to define the indefinable and travel into uncharted territory. The Irresistible will have its hold on you, whether you’re aware of it or not.
