    Event description

    PYT Fairfield presents Stage Soldiers: A work-in-progress muixed-media theatre performance and panel

    A viewing and discussion by Kady Robinson

    Kady grew up in a military family. Their Mum and Dad were always in uniform and Holsworthy Barracks was practically a daycare. They wanted to be a soldier but before they could sign up, they started going to war with their own body.

    Stage Soldiers (working title) is a new mixed-media theatre work exploring gender fluidity in contrast with growing up in Australian military culture. It's a personal, emotional, and aggressive work that gives voice to one of many queer Australian stories today. It's a journey of self-discovery and self-acceptance with few laughs along the way and it's a powerful and brave telling in a community that thrives on difference, but yet to fully accept and embrace this difference. 

    This is a work-in-progress showing. Please join us after the showing for a discussion with Kady Robinson and Matt Prest.
