Beyonce meets the women’s marches meets Australian idol. Full of suburban dreams and pop star fantasies.
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.
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; Vietnamese-Australian slam poet May Tran; comedic actor Tasha O’Brien; 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.
A brave and transformative new work that reflects the cultural diversity of contemporary Australia
