Third Culture Kids presents Once We Were Kings. Drawn from stories of struggle and disillusion and woven together with fantasy, Once We Were Kings explores what it means to be young, queer and Muslim – a crescent-shaped peg in a Southern Cross-shaped hole.
Feisty and lyrical, but with moments of pure dark humour and strong, heavy themes, Once We Were Kings sheds light on the myriad of Muslim identities that are often sidelined, silenced and closeted, and is accompanied by an international visual art exhibition.
Recommended for audiences 15+
