‘Carefully, gently, with a mix of irresistible humour and breathtaking, desolating honesty, he brings his audience with him.‘ – Alison Croggon
Join an odyssey of self-discovery and liberation. Actor, dancer and writer Joel Bray invites you to an intimate exploration of his secret queer identity within the confines of a 1990s Pentecostal Church. Partake in a shared ritual that immerses you in the transformative power of music, movement and collective ritual.
Pentecostalism is Australia’s fastest-growing religion and Joel will lead you through an insider’s perspective on the intersection of faith and sexuality. From the humble church hall to the vibrant disco dance floor, Homo Pentecostus peels back layers of conflicting allure and hidden shame to illuminate our quest to embrace our true selves.
Written, directed and performed by Joel Bray, co-directed with Emma Valente and performed with Peter Paltos, Homo Pentecostus is an ecstatic testament to resilience, love and the pursuit of personal truth.
