New Zealand Premiere/Auckland Exclusive.
Joel Bray is black. Well, he’s white, but black. Y’know? He’s in a hotel room somewhere in Auckland and you, the audience, are invited to share his story.
In this nowhere place Bray takes a pause, looks over his shoulder and takes a good look at his life, asking: “Is this where I am supposed to be? Is this who I am supposed to be? What is all this? The drugs? The sex? The cigarettes?”
Biladurang is loosely based on the traditional story of the platypus. It’s a story Bray – a gay, fair-skinned Aboriginal artist – grew up hearing, identifying with this mutant offspring who doesn’t seem to belong and finds himself roaming in search of a home. This award-winning confessional solo show is physical, tender, funny and dark. It’s the perfect dance-theatre one-night stand.
