Cabaret Nights 2015: Twists and Turns

Matthew Mitcham OAM is the 2008 Olympic champion from the 10m platform, having received the highest single-dive score in Olympic history. He is the first Australian male to win an Olympic gold medal in diving since 1924.

Matthew has recently released his autobiography Twists and Turns, which reveals a life behind the international spotlight that has been plagued by low self-esteem, anxiety and depression, panic attacks and repeated self-harm as a teenager, leading on to drug abuse.

He has also struggled with issues relating to his sexuality and is one of few Olympians to compete at the event as an openly gay man. All of this he has battled and overcome to achieve greatness.

Away from the diving pool Matthew is a talented singer and musician, who invites you to share the highs and lows of his incredible young life through theatre and song, in this inspirational cabaret show.
