Tetris. You know the game? The one with colourful, non-regular shaped objects that are pushed around until they disappear? Since forever, this has been the experience of the other. Come join reformed stand-up comedian and Autist MC Jacci Pillar and guests Sally Goldner (AM), Kath Duncan, James Williams and Yvonne Fein in some critical social intersectional commentary down the path away from the Tetris medical models to social models of being. You too can enjoy not being normal, because normal is so last century.
Tickets on Myself is showcase version of an earlier show about women’s reproductive rights, Total Vagina, featuring the stories of four artists/activists. This showcase features intersectional commentary front and centre – it’s darker, sharper, political.
Jacci has just moved from the Northern Territory and is done playing nice and done trying to stand on a stage with a microphone rested on their chin. Comedy has lost its soul. There has to be space for something else.
