ACTION STAR

From Western Sydney to Hong Kong, ACTION STAR is PYT Fairfield’s new ‘live action’ 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.

Stunts, weapons and martial arts, you won’t want to miss this explosive and virtuosic autobiographical performance.

ACTION STAR is currently in development.
