Long Table

We are building a table. It’s a long table. We want you to take a seat.

Long Table is an opportunity for communities to gather and connect with Q Theatre in an entirely new way. Across Autumn 2019 artists Vonne Patiag, Bhenji Ra and Venessa Possum with assistant curator Nathan Sentance will each curate a month of activity around the table. Long Table is curated by leaders from our local First Nations, CALD & LGBTQI+ communities. This project is made possible thanks to the support of Create NSW and the Western Sydney Strategic Opportunities Fund.

 

APRIL – HOME LAND, Curated by Vonne Patiag

MAY – BAD GIRLS’ CLUB, Curated by Bhenji Ra

Bad Girls Club aims to provide a space for radical femme knowledge and expression through a series of panels, workshops and parties. The months events will be directed by trans and queer women of color who share local histories of living and existing as femme bodies in western Sydney and whose experience of this has both shaped themselves and their respective practices. Bad Girls Club hopes to engage local women, femmes and queer communities in the Penrith precinct to explore the complexities of existing and reclaiming space within Western Sydney.
