8 March 2021 @ 8:30 pm - 9:30 pm AEDT

This concert is live streamed on Melbourne Digital Concert Hall
Live studio audience tickets are also available

A daring work by Katy Abbott based on the anonymous confessions of over 200 women. Do I Matter? is a bold artistic endeavour that seeks to explore – within the glare of public performance – the thoughts and desires we keep closest, and to express the inner narrator we keep secret.
