Fri Feb 17 - Sat Mar 25

After a workplace indiscretion shatters his elite physiotherapy career, Ard Panicker ends up working at a metaphysical health spa giving Ayurvedic rubdowns to yummy mummies in Bondi. 

When he receives word that his estranged father has died, Ard’s world is thrown into turmoil. He begins to shake and shudder with mysterious full-body seizures—accompanied with waking visions of a terrifying, all-powerful deity.  

Desperate to find a cure for his phantasmagorical condition, Ard travels to the village in South India where his father was born.  

Instead, he finds an enlightened tantric guru who cracks open his sense of identity, sexuality and his grip on reality. 

From the brilliant brain of playwright Nicholas Brown, and featuring a mind-melting breakout performance by Raj Labade, Sex Magick is a wildly funny (and just plain wild) exploration of queerness, masculinity and South Asian-Australian identity. Griffin’s Artistic Director Declan Greene (Green Park) teams up with Brown to co-direct a tantalising mix of live video and ancient Indian Kathakali dance theatre in an experience that will be like nothing else on Sydney stages in 2023. Guaranteed. 

Co-Directors Nicholas Brown & Declan Greene 
Choreographer Raghav Handa 
Set & Costume Designer Mason Browne 
Lighting Designer Kelsey Lee 
Video Designer Solomon Thomas 
With Blazey Best, Raj Labade, Catherine Văn-Davies
