PYT Fairfield, in association with Sydney WorldPride, presents
Stage Soldiers: A work-in-progress mixed-media theatre performance and panel discussion

Kady grew up in a military family. Her Mum and Dad were always in uniform and Holsworthy Barracks was practically a daycare. She wanted to be a soldier but before she could sign up, she started going to war with her own body.

Stage Soldiers (working title) is a new mixed-media theatre work exploring gender fluidity in contrast with growing up in Australian military culture. It’s a personal, emotional, and aggressive work that gives voice to one of many queer Australian stories today. It’s a journey of self-discovery and self-acceptance with a few laughs along the way and it’s a powerful and brave telling in a community that thrives on difference, but is yet to fully welcome this difference. 

This is a work-in-progress showing. Please join us after the showing for a discussion with Kady Robinson and Matt Prest.

*PYT Fairfield acknowledges the service and sacrifice of all members of the Australian Defence Force, past and present, and wishes to honour the history of Australia’s LGBTQIA+ soldiers.
