Event Details

This performance addresses themes of body image, and contains graphic content/simulated gore. Recommended for mature audiences.

Arty is huge. Ginormous. Morbidly and grossly obese, he’s in need of a gastric bypass to save his life. At over 400 kilos, he’s the world’s fattest teenager.

Arty is also being followed by a reality TV crew. Will he lose the kilos needed to have the op? Will he survive to eat another cream bun? Will Louise, his Pathways-to-Work officer, transform his life in ways he never imagined?

Unapologetically satiric, Melissa Bubnic’s Beached is also the moving story of a man imprisoned in his own body. It lays bare the mercenary nature of reality TV and turns the microscope on society’s insatiable appetite for human misery.

Performed by UniSQ’s third year students

Directed by internationally acclaimed director Jason Klarwein
