talking with Creatrix Tiara about Tiara’s show Queer Lady Magician…
“Can an overly honest person be a good magician?
If you failed at something once should you never try again?
And what’s with all these straight White men in Orientalist drag?
Queer Lady Magician tells the story of Creatrix Tiara’s first love of stage magic, losing the love from failure, and revisiting her childhood passion as an adult. In the process of doing so, she is forced to confront her demons: impostor syndrome, fear of failure, trauma from emotional abuse.
Interwoven with autobiographical storytelling are acts that politicize stage magic to question norms about magic and society: assumptions about people’s identities based on their appearance, gender stereotypes of (male) Magician and (female) Assistant, cultural appropriation in magic, and much more. Serious social and personal issues are tackled with humour, silliness, saltiness, and heartfelt sincerity.
Through this show, Creatrix Tiara learns what it means to be a Queer Lady Magician, eventually taking ownership of an artform that has traditionally been dominated by straight cis able-bodied White men and making it queer, feminist, decolonial – by battling internalised and externalised oppression.”
we are making a multi-part radio documentary about women’s experiences of getting older in “punk” (by women we mean all those who identify as female) – whatever that has meant to them. we wanna talk to people about why they first got involved in punk, in what way they got involved, what their experiences were as younger women, and how that has changed over time. why people are still involved or why they are not, what they get out of it or what they would have wanted. we want to know how broader stereotypes about women and aging have affected people’s experiences in “punk” – has gender affected experiences of aging in the scene? has “youth culture” affected other male friends differently? and lastly what would you want from a “punk” scene or community?
if you are interested in being part of the documentary please email us firstname.lastname@example.org
we can interview people in person in melbourne or can also arrange interviews by phone
