Gasworks Arts Park Presents

Labels

International exclusive to Gasworks Arts Park. Fresh from an acclaimed season at Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Gasworks Arts Park is delighted to bring UK performer Joe Sellman-Leava and his one-man show Labels to our shores.

Labels is a multi-award winning funny theatre show, telling a moving story about mixed heritage and immigration. Recounting his childhood in rural ’90s England in light of changing political attitudes and the ongoing refugee crisis, the performance melds stand-up comedy, storytelling and spoken word.

Shortlisted for Amnesty International’s Freedom of Expression Award, Labels analyzes the way we use words, the line between curiosity and fear, and the rise of anti-immigration rhetoric.

Amid the cacophony of statistics and soundbites that surround the immigration debate, Labels offers an honest, human story about the bridges and barriers formed in a multicultural Britain.

A special Q&A with Joe Sellman-Leava will take place after the opening night performance on Wednesday 18 October. Tegan Jones, actor, producer and co-founder of the local Melbourne based independent theatre company Boutique Theatre​ will host this discussion with Joe about his work and life, giving you an opportunity to delve deeper.
