Join artist, producer and proud neurodivergent Heidi Everett as she confronts tragedy, creativity and comedy, revealing what it’s like to be in a public psychiatric ward and searching for a way out.

Qualia/Fyre is a search for fire in one of the coldest places on earth. Inspired by the powerful creative dynamic of Heidi and John Fleming, the performance delivers an unyielding sense of humour through ‘ward-time’ artwork, illuminating the living experience of the psych system.

This is a new work of the artist’s mental health diversity performance company Qualia Theatre, which premiered to sold-out audiences at Melbourne FRINGE in 2019, receiving the Access and Inclusion award for world-leading inclusive audience and artist practices.
