/ Saturday Sessions / Arts / Saturday Sessions – Joel Bray – Dance Massive show “Biladurang”

 

Joel joined Pete and Paul to chat about his upcoming show “Biladurang” which is part of Dance Massive. Joel shared a lot about his life and how a relationship break up caused him to re-assess his life. Biladurang is the an expression of Joel’s life, set in an actual hotel room

Joel is trapped in a hotel room somewhere in Melbourne and the audience are trapped with him. Pull on a bathrobe and share a uniquely immersive and intimate encounter with Joel in the hilarious and revelatory Biladurang.

In this nowhere place Joel takes a pause, looks over his shoulder and takes a good look at his life, asking: ‘Is this where I am supposed to be? Is this who I am supposed to be? What is all this? The drugs? The sex? The cigarettes?’

Biladurang is loosely based on the traditional story of the platypus. It’s a story Joel grew up hearing, identifying with this mutant offspring who doesn’t seem to belong and finds himself roaming in search of a home. This award-winning confessional solo is physical, tender, funny and dark. It’s the perfect dance-theatre one-night stand.

Biladurang is on from Tue 19 – Sun 24 March with 2 shows a night at 6pm & 8pm (75 Mins) at Sofitel Melbourne on Collins, 25 Collins St, Melbourne.

Tickets are available through https://dancemassive.com.au/program/biladurang/
