Joel Bray



Joel Bray is black. Well, he’s white, but black. Y’know? He’s trapped in a hotel room somewhere in Darwin and you, the audience, are trapped with him. In this intimate space he stops, looks over his shoulder and takes a good look at his life: ‘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 grew up hearing, and he always identified with this mutant offspring, who doesn’t seem to belong and finds himself roaming in search of a home. It’s a confessional solo dance-theatre work that is physical, tender, funny and dark.
