Intimacy is dead, and we’re partying with its corpse.

Presented by Before Shot

Following a critically acclaimed tour across Australia, the award-winning Intoxication returns in 2021.

“It’s about connection. Connection in all its forms: between people, friends, lovers, electricity cords and sockets, all getting close. Trying to get closer.”

After acclaimed seasons at Melbourne Fringe 2017, Critical Animals in Newcastle, Bondi Feast and Adelaide Fringe, Intoxication comes to Anywhere Festival 2021. 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.

Weaving together Christopher’s real-life near-death experience with theory from Brené Brown’s Daring Greatly, Judith Herman’s Trauma and Recovery, and Matthew Todd’s How to Be Gay and Happy, Intoxication is an intimate piece of queer storytelling and audience connection.

“Make eye contact and prepare for a genuine, moving performance” (4 stars) – The Advertiser.

Winner of the Melbourne Fringe and Midsuma Queer Mentorship Award (2017).

    ACCESSIBILITY INFO

    I'm not sure because I'm from Victoria and forgot to ask Zed about accessibility! In terms of the show itself it's just me in a room so there'll be good views anywhere.
