Homo Pentecostus

By Joel Bray, Emma Valente & Peter Paltos

10 May 2024 – 25 May 2024 Beckett Theatre

New Work Dance Devised

Join an odyssey of self-discovery and liberation. Actor, dancer, and writer, Joel Bray invites you to an intimate exploration of his secret queer identity within the confines of a 1990s Pentecostal Church.

Partake in a shared ritual that immerses you in the transformative power of music, movement, and collective ritual. From the humble church halls to the vibrant disco dance floors, Homo Pentecostus peels back layers of conflicting allure and hidden shame to illuminate our quest to embrace our true selves. 

Awaken your spirit. Shake up your perceptions. Homo Pentecostus is an ecstatic testament to resilience, love, and the pursuit of personal truth.
