Part-disco, part-confessional, all-awesome. 

Come on in, slip into something a little more comfortable. Let all those inhibitions go, baby. Proud Wiradjuri man Joel Bray and his remarkable team of collaborators take you on a flirty, filthy and passionate journey through the true history of sensuality, down under. 

Rejecting the conservative straightness of sexual politics in Australia, this provocative dance-theatre performance blends cabaret, comedy and choreography. 

Don’t believe what you’ve heard: the sexual revolution started well before the 60s! 

2021 Green Room Award winner for Best Physical Performance

There is so much to enjoy in this radical act of queer remembering. The transitions are masterful, the immersive design is effective and all the performers demonstrate a keen theatrical intelligence.
