WORLD PREMIERE – An exploration of faith and faithlessness, life and death from dance-theatre guru Tara Cheyenne Friedenberg, Porno Death Cult is infused with her signature humour and pathos. In a pilgrimage through a strange landscape of longing, a woman, a preacher, and a god, come face to face with each other, and the unanswerable questions that contort our collective perceptions. Director Marcus Youssef (Neworld Theatre) lends his unique style and impeccable eye to this quirky, idiosyncratic fusion of text, dance, character, and prayer for something better.

With the irreverent sounds of composer Marc Stewart and sinful illumination by James Proudfoot. The vestments/costume design by Alice Mansell and place of worship/set design by Mickey Meads. Visual Art/Gallery installation by Mansell and Meads.
