Boss represents an innovative collaboration between established Queensland Artist, Brian Lucas, and an emerging artist who lives with disability, Laura Solomon, allowing them to develop and present an original two-hander performance that explores issues impacting on both of their lives – disability/ability, power, freedom, personal agency, social interactions, and assumptions that are based on appearances.

Boss aims to present both performers in a new light, allowing them to share their powerful insights and challenge both to explore new ideas and to further extend their creativity and artistry.

Two average people meet in a generic waiting room in the offices of a mysterious company where they await an interview for an unspecified job. As they wait, they chat to fill in the time, and find themselves gradually drawn in a playful world of facts and fantasy – a world of supermodels, Disney princesses, Shakespearean lovers, masters, servants, and superheroes. But what is the “company”? What is the job? Will anyone ever attend to them? And who exactly is the mysterious “Boss”?

Boss is a highly physical combination of comedy and drama which explores the personal and political issues surrounding disability and power.

Boss represents a unique contribution to the field of inclusive performance in Brisbane by allowing the two artists to work together as peers, making their individual and combined artistic voices heard.

This premier season of Boss is proudly supported by Blue Roo Theatre Company, Brisbane City Council via the Creative Sparks Grant program and QPAC.
