My friend Joe took his own life. It’s the kind of loss that moves in and takes permanent residence in your heart. This show isn’t about him; it’s about everything that came after. Death. Disco. Heartbeat is an exploration of loss, resilience and the need to lean into joy. It’s a kind of unwinding. A reflection of personal loss, revolution and finding your own kind of redemption. It is a eulogy, a love letter, a celebration.

This is the first independent full work by Dynamotion’s Lara Liew. Created with Colleen Davis, Alice Canton and Cat Fawcett-Cornes.

For Joe.


Warning: Recommended 16+. This performances contains haze, themes of suicide and full nudity.
