Stunts, weapons and martial arts… 

ACTION STAR is PYT Fairfield’s new ‘live action’ solo performance featuring international action film star, Maria Tran. Celebrated as one of Asia’s leading female action film stars, in Australia Maria faces high barriers. Her compelling story exposes the powerful identity, politics and racism that pervade our dominant Western cultural narratives.

From Western Sydney to Hong Kong, ACTION STAR is an explosive, virtuosic, autobiographical performance.

ACTION STAR is currently in development.
