Join Joel Bray, Moe Laga, Kaan Hiini and David Farrier as they share their own experiences of forging new paths and finding their tribe.

In his intimate hotel-room show, Biladurang, Joel Bray explores the remarkable tension of growing up as a gay Aboriginal boy in a white Pentecostal household and feeling like a ‘mutant’. 

But how do you find (and remain true to) yourself when you don’t have an anchor? And how does this change the way we think about family?

Join Joel Bray, Tanu Gago, Moe Laga, Kaan Hiini and David Farrier as they share their own experiences of forging new paths and finding their tribe.

Part of Auckland Arts Festival’s Talks series curated by Rosabel Tan.
