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.
This is the kind of work we don’t often have the opportunity to present on our stage – a work that invites you into the world of five young women living in urban contemporary Australia – a world that is not often represented on Australia’s mainstages (yet).
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 artists in contemporary Australia, featuring Ebube Uba, a Nigerian-Australian actor and dancer; Neda Taha, a Tongan-IraqiAustralian 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.
Recommended for ages 14+. Contains coarse language, adult themes, strobe and haze.
