BOY WITH THE RAINBOW UMBRELLA

Anywhere Festival 2016

 

Two boys find themselves in a dreary room in East Brisbane in the early hours of the morning. One stirring in his sleep: The other drenched in water. Their first meet was somewhat catastrophic…but there’s still a debriefing to be had.

Installation meets theatre – Boy with the Rainbow Umbrella interrogates masculine identities and their contribution to the maintenance of Queensland’s infamous Homosexual Advance Defense.

The thing that sets me apart. I’m the feminine. I’m the faggot. I’m the one that parents
hope their son makes it home tonight while dressing like that, talking like that, acting like that.
