Powerhouse: Late with Queer Screen

Powerhouse: Late with Queer Screen

Join us at Powerhouse: Late


Thursday 28 July, 5-9pm, FREE
Powerhouse Museum, 500 Harris St, Ultimo


Queer Screen is excited to take over Powerhouse on Thursday 28 July from 5-9pm for a free selection of screenings, short films, VR experiences and live performances.


Exploring queer narratives through a multitude of lenses, we are presenting interactive panel discussions, a queer disco with familiar faces from the community and plenty more.

Plus listen to the Sydney Cello Quartet playing musical arrangements of queer film favourites.

Entry is free and no bookings are required. We’d love to see you there!

Our VR experience will feature IOPU

Moment and memory blend as you bear witness to a Samoan rite of passage. IOPU takes you behind the curtain of a resplendent theatre as you follow a queer Samoan-Australian performer who is about to take the stage. Through drama, dress and dance, this VR experience explores the themes of alienation, acceptance and finding our own tribe.
