DEMOLITION

Tick Tick Boom…Time’s Up Motherlovers!

Polytoxic (Australia) and Kiosk Film (Australia)
Created and written by Lisa Fa’alafi & Leah Shelton (Polytoxic)
World Premiere

RE/PLAY Features

Two digital offerings for one:

  1. The live performance of DEMOLITION by Polytoxic
  2. Documentary DEMOLITION: Staging a Protest by Kiosk Film and Polytoxic
  1. DEMOLITION: Live
    Tick Tick Boom…Time’s Up Motherlovers!
    The detonator is rigged, the fuse is lit, and these fierce femme tradies are taking a sledgehammer to the system. DEMOLITION is an explosion of cabaret, theatre, and activism set to rebuild the world from the ashes-up filmed in front of a live audience.

  2. DEMOLITION: Staging A Protest
    Take a peek behind the curtain in this fast-paced yet intimate film documenting Polytoxic’s radical and inclusive process as they bring their production DEMOLITION to the stage. DEMOLITION: Staging a Protest is as high octane as it is politically relevant, highlighting why there has never been a more important time to bring visibility to underrepresented and intersectional stories.

Come for the protest. Stay for the party.
