“I’m leading a double life, a simple, honest warehouse worker by day, by night a dynamic tsar of the underworld, Mother.”

Tennessee Williams, The Glass Menagerie

Which is the underworld? The world we escape to or the world in which we stay? 

Inspired by the figure of Tom in Tennessee Williams’ The Glass Menagerie, UNBROKEN seeks to explore what is it to feel restrained, to contain every impulse of pleasure and to tether the need for adventure. 

Interrogating internalised shame in the LGBTQIA+ community compounded by the legacy of Section 28 and the continued influence of heteronormative ideals, UNBROKEN aims to explore the authentic self as opposed to the censored self; what we lose when we camouflage and adapt to meet societal norms. 

 

UNBROKEN was originally created for The Bloomsbury Festival 2020 and was conceived in collaboration with animal transformation practitioner, Gabrielle Moleta.
