Scaled dsc 0051 edit  1
Part true story, part metaphor, part poetry. You are invited to a raw reflection of personal and political twisting with themes of consent and sexuality. After a phenomenal premiere in the Adelaide Feast Festival, Burlesque by Force returns with a little more flesh for Fringe. "one that leaves you reliving it for some time to come ★★★★" (AU Review) "a gut-wrenching - and essential - dramatization of a tragic chapter from Australia's present" (Australian Stage)

Presented by:
Brodie John

Born in Adelaide, Brodie's theatre career started as a publicist for independent theatre companies in Fringe festivals, his first being 2009. After making it to Edinburgh Fringe in 2012, Brodie moved to Melbourne where he accomplished his dream of being a published writer while earning money teaching trade apprentices about money management. Now pursuing a Masters of Cultural and Creative Industries, he has set his sights on creating work as a writer and performer, fascinated by the role of consent in creative practice.
