Our Blood Runs in the Street

13 – 16 July 2022

New Benner Theatre, Metro Arts, West End

In 2019, the NSW Parliament reopened the NSW Parliamentary Inquiry into Gay and Transgender hate crimes between 1970 and 2010 to delve into the state’s history of violence and persecution against LGBTQIA+ Australians. Shane Anthony’s production Our Blood Runs in the Street blends physical theatre with verbatim text, drawing on the words of victims’ family members, witnesses, historians, police officers, journalists, and researchers, to examine how cultural prejudice and bias have contributed to the violence against LGBTQIA+ Australians for decades.

Community Event

Following the matinee performance on Saturday 16 July, Metro Arts and Shane Anthony wish to offer a space for the LGBTQIA+ community to come together and debrief about the work and topics covered. Facilitated by creator and director Shane Anthony, the panel and discussion with community leaders includes Dr Wendell Rosevaearr from Stonewall Medical Centre, and Jane Hopkins from PFLAG+. This event is free for those attending the matinee performance.
