Listen On Goodpods

By June Ramli

I had an eventful weekend last week.
I attended two plays and one showcase of queer short films at the Bondi Pavilion on Sunday evening.
Let’s start with the first play on Friday evening at the Flight Path theatre in Marrickville.
This was a confusing showcase to say the least.
The theme of the play, if I may call it was what our future would look like if we continued to treat it like trash.
Some of us were given forms and asked to write out our observations.

One of the 'futures' that we were tasked in deciphering for Liminal Treats.

Anyway, the showcase only lasted for an hour and in that hour we were feasted with four scenarios of how our world would be like in the future if we continue to treat it as it is.
I wasn’t expecting this at all, I was expecting some kind of show where the performers would perform on the stage while we sit down and watch.
But Liminal Treats served us food like chocolates which was great.
If you are interested in checking out the show yourself, go here to purchase tickets. 
On Saturday, I attended another show called ‘Soggy’ at the same venue by the same guys but this one was far better!
Though it was a kids show but despite being the only adult there, with the rest being parents chaperoning their kids, I had fun watching the show.
Some of the performers showcased acrobatic and circus moves during the hour- long event which surprised me.

Soggy was fun to watch.

I was impressed since they managed to pull off these moves despite being confined in a small stage.
The only complaint that I would have for this showcase was that I wished the organisers had turned the air conditioning on since it was really warm throughout the whole hour.

Finally on Sunday, I watched the Rainbow Shorts at the Bondi Pavilion.
This was a two hour showcase celebrating LGBT stories from around the world.
The showcase was good but I left mid-way because I felt that some of the themes was just too confronting for me to stomach.
I finally understand the struggles that this community goes through just to be themselves and I now have new found respect for them.
For that, I thank you.
I am unsure if they would show these shorts again but for those interested to know more about the show on Sunday, here is the link.
