STIGMA is a production from Devize Co and written by Darren Vizer, that incorporates theatre, dance and physical encounters. A dynamic theatre and movement performance, examining the prejudices, discrimination and stigma experienced by people living with HIV.
STIGMA draws inspiration from Darren’s own experiences as well as a diverse range of stories from people in the broader community who live with HIV.
The University of Melbourne’s Centre for Excellence in Rural Sexual Health (CERSH) has partnered with Devize Co to bring STIGMA to Albury Wodonga, with the aim to strengthen community engagement and collaborative partnerships to reduce stigma associated with sexually transmissible infections (STIs) and blood borne viruses (BBVs) and promote better access to testing in rural and regional areas.
The performance will be followed by a Q&A panel session with Darren and cast, as well as representatives of the regional Victorian HIV community and clinical experts from the Albury Wodonga region and across Victoria.
The STIGMA performance in Albury Wodonga is made possible thanks to CERSH, ACON, NSW Government – Ability Links and Intereach, Albury Community Health, LGBTIQ Alliance, Gateway Health, NSW Health - Murrumbidgee Local Health District and Thorne Harbour Health.
