STIGMA

A confronting and dynamic live theatre and movement performance, examining the prejudices, discrimination and stigma experienced by people living with HIV.

"Whilst somewhat disturbing in the truth, well devised, exceptional acting and dance, and a lesson to all" Melbourne Star Observer
 

 

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.

Produced by Devize Co in partnership with CERSH, OSKA, Victorian AIDS Council, Living Positive Victoria, VACountry, Positive Women Victoria.
