Noemie Huttner-Koros is a performance-maker, writer and director based on Whadjuk Noongar country.

She has: performed for three people at a time in a blanket fort (Fruits of Failure), had conversations with people under tables (For the Lonely), run through public parks (Aeon, Lz Dunn), written a play called 'Labial Lips' (Australian Theatre for Young People National Studio), encouraged audiences to break 'priceless' works of arts (House of Joys, FRINGE WORLD 2018) and co-created and performed in a new Australian musical (Miss Westralia FRINGE WORLD 2018). A recent WAAPA graduate, Noemie likes to be silly.
The Lion Never Sleeps
About this event
The Lion Never Sleeps takes you on a group walk through Northbridge to uncover and retrace queer history: saunas, dance floors, sex ed and solidarity. Equipped with a listening device and headphones, an audience of twenty navigate, meander and move through spaces where the queer population danced, fought, and formed communities during the AIDS crisis in Perth in the 1980s. The Lion Never Sleeps is a riotous call for justice and joy, a celebration of resilience, resistance and glitter.
Developed through the Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts' and Propel Youth Arts LGBTQIA+ Still Here program, The Lion Never Sleeps is an homage to our queer elders and an intergenerational conversation.
