A CELEBRATION OF QUEER KIWI EXPERIENCES

21 Jan 2016

Experience a queer kiwi perspective on modern lives with LEGACY PROJECT 3. LEGACY PROJECT was created to provide opportunities for the LGBT community to tell their unique Kiwi stories on stage. Returning for a third year as part of Auckland Pride 2016, we once again return to Q Theatre LOFT to share six new bite-sized plays that celebrate the experiences that define our queer community. From our open call submission process, the project has attracted a diverse mixture of stories. From the numerous submissions received, the following six plays were selected for their development potential and curated into this showcase of fresh kiwi work from some of Auckland’s finest emerging artists. “There’s a real hunger to see more diverse representation across the entire wide spectrum of queer experiences. Each year it’s a personal challenge for us produce a programme that reflects and celebrates the wonderfully diverse nature of our community. I’m excited by the great work being created and inspired by all the future storytellers involved this year.” - Bruce Brown, Artistic Director. Celebrate the experience of being part of the queer kiwi community with LEGACY PROJECT 3, coming to Q Theatre LOFT in February 2016 as part of Auckland Pride 2016.
