Ego Jacket

Cabaret / Performance
Scaled guide pic
A persona that functions like a bulletproof vest. A disguise to conceal the truth.

By the age of 25 Phillip had lost 60 kilos, come out, had abdominoplasty, dealt with heartbreak and staged two shows about it, so you could say that all his troubles are behind him ...right?

Join Phillip Lee Curtis on an audio visual journey of self-discovery in this rock cabaret extravaganza that explores anxiety, self-sabotage and the deep internal void.

Featuring a soundtrack of largely Australian classics, including songs by INXS, Skyhooks, Nick Cave and Tina Arena, Phil lays bare truths he's kept hidden even from himself. But will it be too late? How much can the ego handle?

"A powerful beyond belief performance... Curtis is a force to be reckoned with" Stage Whispers.


“Phillip Lee Curtis is a performer to watch and deserves an audience to hear and understand his personal yet universal story.”
Lisa Lanzi, Theatre Travels

“Phillip Lee Curtis is a masterful performer, strutting around the stage with all the cocky openness of a seasoned rock star”
Gavin Roach, Australian Arts Review
