Australian music legend Paul Mac has teamed up with playwright Lachlan Philpott and director Kate Champion to deliver an inspiring tale of strength and community.

The work was inspired by the vandalism of a popular and much-loved iconic mural of the singer George Michael in Sydney’s Inner West following the successful Marriage Equality campaign in 2018. The events following the desecration of the Erskineville mural symbolised the challenges that some in the LGBTQIA+ community were facing and the solidarity they found.

A selection of collaborators, including NgaiireJoyrideBrendan MacleanHANDSOMEMarcus WhaleAndrew Bukenya and Jacqui Dark, will join Mac alongside a large community choir. The choir features members of a range of Melbourne based choirs. The performance brings together song, text and colourful electronica in a show of community, solidarity and freedom.

January 23 – 24
