The Life Cycle of Blanco

Thu Mar 2 - Sat Mar 4

Thu Mar 2 - Sat Mar 4

A tale of invisibility, rage and the uplifting power of survival.

Part monologue, part eulogy, and packing more than a punch, Blanco honours his dying creative ambitions with documentarian flair.

An Asian character study with weights and floor work, movement and audience interaction, this fusion of verbatim and physical theatre explores the fractured mind of one man.

Blanco has decided to end the ‘short life cycle’ of his acting career due to the culminating effect of hidden and casual racism on his psyche.

How do we thrive in life when faced with so many dead ends in our artistic endeavours? Blanco proves that sometimes truth can be more entertaining, but it’s up to you if you want to laugh.

With development support from Q Theatre, Blacktown Arts Centre, Brand X and National Theatre of Parramatta.

Written and performed by Vonne Patiag
