Students of Monash CTP will be aware of the calibre of work CTP PhD student and guest tutor Christopher Bryant has to offer on stage and his latest piece heading to Melbourne Fringe shortly, is no exception!
Christopher has created a stunning piece of theatre with ‘Intoxication’ and this year’s Fringe Fest is the place to see it
Opening at Fringe Hub: Lithuanian Club – Son of Loft from THIS Friday (15 Sept)
“It’s about connection. Connection in all its forms: between people, friends, lovers, electricity cords & sockets, all getting close. Trying to get closer.”
Intimacy is dead, and we’re partying with its corpse.
Intoxication is a post-dramatic patchwork about queer millennial anxiety; exploring how the intense fear of being alone rules modern society, and how one person’s loneliness is symptomatic of everyone’s problem. Inspired by the work of sociologist Brené Brown, Intoxication weaves together concepts of vulnerability and shame with Christopher’s personal experience of a brain injury and amnesia, and the overall anxiety of being queer in the technological age.
It was first performed as a full production in the 2016 Midsumma festival before being reworked and rewritten as a monologue, inspired after Christopher met Kate Mulvany and worked with Gob Squad during their visit to Melbourne in 2016. This shorter version debuted at the 2017 YouAreHere Canberra festival in the “Housebound” program.
