Canberra Theatre Centre unveils VALENCE series of boundary-pushing works

by | Jun 4, 2024

Canberra Theatre Centre has today announced Valence, a series of works to ignite the senses and challenge the perceptions of Canberran theatregoers.

Curated to captivate intellect and stir the soul, Valence brings together visionary artists who are exploring the now, pushing the boundaries of convention and inviting reflection and action.

The programme features David Finnegan’s slippery and subversive take on a classic radio play 44 Sex Acts in One Week; Eliza Sanders’ part-dance theatre, part-live improvisation, part-performative lecture Manage Your Expectations, queer black comedy and drag extravaganza about power, privilege, and high school debating Trophy Boys; Marrugeku Dance Company’s alternately challenging and joyful Jurrungu Ngan-ga [Straight Talk] and Betty Grumble’s eco-feminist explosion of art, politics, love, and anger in Enemies of Grooviness Eat Sh!t.

Celebrating the powerful chemistry between performers and audience alike, Valence invites viewers to confront uncomfortable truths and embrace the possibilities of transformation through collaboration and connection.

From some of Australia’s leading performance makers, don’t miss your chance to see a range of astounding works from July to September 2024.
