Queer parade meets audio history

West Australian

Oral history, performance art and queer pride collide; it’s a dance party and you’re invited.

The Lion Never Sleeps takes you on a group walk through Northbridge to uncover and retrace queer history: saunas, dance floors, sex ed and solidarity. Equipped with a listening device and headphones, an audience of twenty navigate, meander and move through spaces where the queer population danced, fought, and formed communities during the AIDS crisis in Perth in the 1980s. The Lion Never Sleeps is a riotous call for justice and joy, a celebration of resilience, resistance and glitter.

Developed through the Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts’ and Propel Youth Arts LGBTQIA+ Still Here program, The Lion Never Sleeps is an homage to our queer elders and an intergenerational conversation.

As part of Summer Nights at FRINGE WORLD 2020.
