“Living may cause death”

- Celine Dion


Arts Centre Melbourne in association with Melbourne Fringe presents presents


Discordia will take you through the darkest corners of the Arts Centre Melbourne, led by The Discordiants: a sect of prawn-worshipping rose beige humans.

These professional absurdists will attempt to prove that truth is stranger than fiction by forming an officially recognised religion, with your help. Be a silent witness or a willing participant; it’s your choice.

Departing from the Fairfax Studio foyer, this piece is part performance work and part live documentary, narrated by the iconic voice of SBS news presenter Lee Lin Chin. 

Visit @discordiants to keep up to date with some very special celebrity guest announcements, recruitment drives and propaganda.
