Part of the Homegrown Festival: Occupy, at Battersea Arts Centre
A drag queen takes you by the hand to tell you secrets in the dressing room.
A punk shares their bent cigarette and a track from a trashed tape deck.
A police man collects their bribe, and room full of people are brought to their knees.
It could be a cabaret club, a punk haven or a speakeasy. Hidden behind a maze of mirages, mysterious shapes pull you into the safety of dark corners and hidden rooms. Here, Brisbane’s Queer History is brought to life by spirits who suffer all, celebrate all and endure all across decades of hiding, rioting and retribution.
Welcome to La Silhouette. It’s time to shine a light on the shadows.
