Access info

Australian Theatre has a celebrated a, relatively recent, history of queer theatre. From censorship furores over The Boys in the Band to classic works such as The Elocution of Benjamin Franklin, Away, and Cyrano, the queer voice has been an important voice on the Australian stage.

This festival will celebrate the contributions made to Australian culture by queer theatre makers and showcase contemporary independent queer Australian theatre work.

“The Festival of Australian Queer Theatre re-views the past, interrogates the now, and imagines the future”.

Across Victoria’s Midwest, we acknowledge that we travel across the ancient landscapes of many First Peoples communities.

These lands have been nurtured and cared for over tens of thousands of years and we respect the work of Traditional Custodians for their ongoing care and protection.

We recognise the past injustices against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in this country. As our knowledge grows, we hope that we can learn from their resilience and creativity that has guided them for over 60,000 years.

As we invite people to visit and explore Victoria’s Midwest, we ask that alongside us, you also grow to respect the stories, living culture and connection to Country of the Ancestors and Elders of our First Peoples.
