A one-man transmasculine fairy tale exploring grief, isolation, and euphoria. 

girl has been banished, abandoned, hidden –  in the depths of a well. There she waits until it is safe for her to emerge. She lost track of the days an eternity ago.

It seems all that is left is to watch the shadows on the wall and create an escape into the reality where she can be ‘he’.

Through poeticism of language and the body,  girl shows us how the grief of isolation can also be healing and joyous, and how authenticity is necessary for survival.

Girl at the bottom of a well will be livestreamed on Thursday, Jun 13, 7.30pm. Livestream playback will be available for 72 hours after the show.
