Presented by Vitalstatistix, Margie Fischer & Theatre Works. An exploration of memory, death, family and the power of objects through story-telling and photography.

Margie Fischer's solo show explores death, memory, family and the power of objects through storytelling and photography.

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

Margie Fischer is a writer, performer, founder and former Artistic Director of Feast, Adelaide's Queer Festival. She is a very funny Jewish lesbian. Her solo show The Gay Divorcee exploring divorce and separation from a lesbian perspective for everyone was a critically acclaimed hit nationally. Come and see what's fascinating Margie now.

Story-telling that is part theatre, part slide-show, part wake, part homage to William Yang, The Dead Ones is a deeply moving personal journey into Margie Fischer's family that has resonances for us all.
