Presented by Albany Entertainment Centre
PLAYLIST is Beyoncé meets the women’s marches meets Australian Idol. It’s full of suburban dreams and pop star fantasies. It’s a pop culture call to action, about the critical issues of our times.
These five incredible young women tell their personal stories through this genre-defying dance theatre work. They represent a unique and powerful cross section of emerging artists in contemporary Australia, featuring Ebube Uba, a Nigerian-Australian actor and dancer; Neda Taha, a Tongan-Iraqi-Australian hip hop dancer; May Tran a Vietnamese-Australian slam poet; comedic actor Tasha O’Brien; and Croatian-Australian pop star Mara Knezevic.
Who is going to shape the future for women in Australia? Living in the #MeToo world, PLAYLIST explores the experiences, ideas and power of young women. This is a coming of age story exploring contemporary issues through music and dance, hip-hop and pop with musical influences ranging from Solange to Fleetwood Mac, to Rihanna and George Michael, there’s something for all audiences to relate and respond to.
Under the direction of the acclaimed Karen Therese, this multi art-form work is choreographed by dancer and choreographer Larissa McGowan, lighting by Verity Hampson with set design by award-winning visual artist Zanny Begg and sound by Gail Priest and Berlin-based sound architect Jasmine Guffond.
