Queer as Flux

Book tickets

A cheeky, playful and life-affirming solo show that celebrates the universality of transitioning

Transitioning isn’t new – everybody’s always doing it: Drag Queens, babies, ageing parents, Superheroes... even clown fish!

Autobiography meets activism in this homage to queer Trans-cestors who paved the way, not-so-queer folks who did their best and the finned and four-legged who depend on us. Fresh from critically-acclaimed seasons at Sydney Opera House, Brisbane Powerhouse and The Blue Room Theatre, Queer as Flux invites Melbourne audiences to spend the night with a grown-up tomboy, their Drag Queen Fairy Godmother and two wise old whales.

This intimate, uplifting solo performance by multi-award winning artists Zac Callaghan (writer/performer) and Leah Mercer (director), celebrates transitions of bodies, hearts and minds via stories of gender, sexuality, spirituality, near-death experiences, dementia, dying and interspecies love.

Whatever letter of the LGBTQIA+ alphabet you identify with, Queer as Flux is for you!


"This show is embracing, powerful and captivating. It deserves to be on the biggest stage we can offer."
— Out in Perth
"A story of strength, and the power of shared history and shared joy."
