'The Temple' (relaxed performance) presented by The Coopers Malthouse

Welcome to 'The Temple'. Here, we are not ourselves. No-one ever really wants to be boring old ‘just me’. That’s why the residents of 'The Temple' are always being someone else. Feel free to jump in. It’s a liberating exercise that is really catching on.

Join an orgy of comedic performers for a short course on 'How to Be Human'. Everything’s set for a group session of gags, traumas, banter and tantrums—each as hysterical as the last.

Dubliner Gavin Quinn concocts a wild Irish brew with Australian ingredients, including Nicola Gunn (Piece for Person and Ghetto Blaster), Ash Flanders (Blackie Blackie Brown), Mish Grigor (Ich Nibber Dibber), Aljin Abella and Marcus McKenzie.

Be honest with yourself. Admit that you want to pretend. There’s nothing to lose but yourself. Would you really miss it.

When: 2pm, Saturday 11 May
