This project is a multi-layered examination of the intersections of Judaism and queerness. It engages Jewish culture and ritual and autobiographical/ autohistorical study to explore the formation of my own experience as a queer person/ settler with Jewish ancestry. This project builds upon four years of self-led research with focus on the continuities and discontinuities of ritual across different subcultures, their malleability and their potential to be adapted to suit marginalised relationships to spirituality. Ritual Slaughterer investigates queer club culture, by way of examining the commonalities between a place of worship and a nightclub, Jewish migration to Australia and transgressive readings of Judaism and associated rituals.

Opening Night: Thursday 17th November 6-8pm
