This is What I Know

Re:Current Theatre

Jackie is sorting things out. She knows she likes women, and calls herself a lesbian, but she’s still attracted to men… she thinks. She’s not sure if she’s trying to hold onto something just to keep a grasp on reality. She wants to make visible what she can’t see, reveal what’s itching underneath, and blow it all apart.

Presented as part of In the Soil Arts Festival 2017

Saturday 29 April @ 6:30pm

Sunday 30 April @ 4pm

Oddfellows Temple

Tickets: $10 or Festival Pass

Tickets at the door only.

Blending multimedia storytelling, live-art, and stand-up comedy, Jackie Rowland delivers a delicate otherworldly performance in This Is What I Know. A coming out story for the questioning and the unsure, this show delves deep into how we are defined by all of the things we aren’t.
