Written & performed by Darren Vizer. Devize Co. La Mama, Carlton (VIC), as part of the 2016 Midsumma Festival. 16 -31 January 2016.
With the final sequence of Darren Vizer’s autobiographical one-man show about growing up gay, the material suddenly becomes powerful, complex and disturbing.
Prior to this sequence, the show is truthful, sometimes painful, sometimes poignant, but also rather familiar and lacking in detail. Mr Vizer, a trained dancer and choreographer, interpolates brief dance sequences, but if the intention is to illuminate the text, the import of these seems vague.
