Beyoncé meets the Women’s marches.
A powerful new dance theatre work exploring the state of feminism through pop culture and music. 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.
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. It promises to be an adrenaline rush of a show, bringing together the diverse skills of the performers, street dance forms and pop songs to offer an unconventional dance theatre experience. Under the direction of the acclaimed Karen Therese, the 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.
The extraordinary all-female identifying cast collectively represent a unique and powerful cross section of contemporary Australia, featuring; Ebube Uba - a Nigerian-Australian actor and dancer, Neda Taha - a Tongan-Iraqi Australian hip hop dancer in Sydney’s underground club scene, May Tran - Vietnamese-Australian slam poet, Tasha O'Brien - comedic actor, and Croatian Australian emerging pop star Mara Knezevic.
The genre-defying work explores contemporary issues through the concept of a music playlist, showcasing how we find our identity in music, and how pop music shapes our cultural and social worlds. With musical styles ranging from Solange to Fleetwood Mac, to Rihanna and George Michael, there’s something for all audiences to relate and respond to.
It is an adrenaline rush of a show not to be missed!
