Smiling Through the Human

Sun 28 May @ 6:30 pm

What do we all desperately need right now in this fine dystopian hellscape of ours?

A completely revamped education system?

The ability to live authentically?

Human connection?

Don’t be silly!

We need quirky existential cabaret!

In Smiling Through the Human, Grace Colsey (they/she) delves into the chaotic, weird and (un)wonderful experience of existing deep inside your head.

Why do I always cry on my birthday?

Why does it feel like I’m living the same day over and over?

…how many times am I going to be recommended to ‘get a planner’ before I become violent-

Through the eyes of lived experience neurodivergence, and quirky original song, embark on a dissociative, frenetic expedition of what ‘humanness’ and healing looks like in our strange, inhuman world.

Diverse-City’s Bar Bites will be available from 6.00pm together with a full range of drinks from the bar.

This show is presented by Quasar Arts, a new theatre company with a focus on new, original, innovative art. Founded in 2021 by Jazz Siegertsz, Quasar Arts debuted in the 2022 Adelaide Fringe with Siegertsz’s original play, Escaping The Burning Sun.

Grace and Quasar Arts would like to acknowledge that Smiling Through the Human was written and will be performed on Kaurna Yerta. Sovereignty was never ceded, this always was and always will be Aboriginal land.
