Season 1 Episode 42

Thu, 29 Sep 2016 7:00pm

“It’s the lack of morals nowadays because if that’s my occupation, it comes with responsibilities….I have people’s children….when it comes to taxi queens….I need to be safe and I need to treat them with respect……that’s what I feel is lacking”

“At the moment its grown folks telling children that ‘taxi queenirism’ is wrong, what about telling [the adult]…that’s unacceptable”

Seven performers from the youth group ComArt (Community Arts Association) – based in Elsies River – speak about their inspiration for the Artscape production Shapes of Me. They identify the stories told in the play, from losing a friend to being a ‘taxi queen’, to understanding the challenges that poverty presents.
