STIGMA is a bold, confronting and dynamic live theatre and movement performance examining how stigma, prejudice and discrimination pushes those living with HIV to the margins of society. Shared from lived experiences, this series of provocations on the stigma of HIV/AIDS seamlessly blends dance and acting in an expressive portrayal of an often voiceless community.
This work contains full frontal nudity and sex scenes.
Stigma relates to a strong feeling of disapproval that people in a society have in response to something. People living with HIV experience this daily, in particular with regards to intimate and sexual connections.
STIGMA confronts self-hatred imposed by mass culture and the ignorance of the ill-informed and commercial media. It unpacks this difficult terrain with a revealing visual and artistic narrative composition.
Produced by Devize Co in partnership with CERSH, OSKA, Victorian Aids Council, Living Positive Victoria, Positive Women Victoria and The Space Dance Centre
