A queer, femme adventure of failed heroism and triumphant femininity.

A dangerous quest of literary theft, build-your-own identity and post-anarchy. A moving and sensational experience of queer thinking, failed heroism and triumphant femininity.
Don Quixote is the softcore idol you deserve, and has a S.A. premiere at the RCC Fringe season.
Queer Femme Kerith Manderson-Galvin (186,000, The Eternity of the World) rips off the world’s first modern novel, Barbie™, and the original rip-off artist Kathy Acker et al. in a signature work that has alienated and captivated audiences across Australia – and invites you into a world which was all an impossible dream.
Turning the page on our construction of gendered identities Being Dead (Don Quixote) pulls femininity from the body and lets it loose on a fantasy set: a digital peep-show booth, a little girl’s room, and a Barbie doll’s packaging.
