Margie Fischer’s solo show explores memory, death, family and the power of objects through storytelling and photography from a Jewish lesbian perspective.

After everyone in her family died, Margie was left to clear out their house. She became fascinated by what is left when loved ones die and documented her feelings and the processes involved. The Dead Ones explores her family stories though the object left behind.

Part theatre, part slideshow, part wake, part homage to William Yang, a deeply moving personal journey into Margie Fischer’s family that has resonance for us all.

Margie Fischer is a writer, performer, founder and former Artistic Director of Feast, Adelaide’s Queer Festival. Her solo show, The Gay Divorcee,  exploring lesbian divorce and separation for everyone was a critically acclaimed hit nationally.

The Dead Ones, in association with Vitalstatistix, premiered at Feast, Adelaide’s Queer Festival, was a hit at Midsumma 2013 and 2013 Adelaide Fringe.
