Performance Description & Synopsis
A powerful new dance theatre work exploring the state of 21st Century feminism through the lens of pop culture and music. Drawing on the lives and perspectives of five young female-identifying performers from Western Sydney, PLAYLIST unpacks the experiences of young women.
In development when the #MeToo movement exploded, PLAYLIST comes at a critical time, with sharp, and at times confronting, commentary on identity, intersectional feminisms and female empowerment in contemporary Australia.
This is an adrenaline rush of a show, bringing together the diverse skills of the performers, street dance forms, pop songs and lyrics to offer an unconventional dance theatre experience.

ENJOY seeing women close to their age, talking about experiences they can empathise and be empowered by.
ENGAGE in challenging the dominant narrative of mainstream media around representation and who is in power of the way we talk about young people.
RESPOND to the use of Dance Theatre as a medium and style. Students can explore how to incorporate dance into theatrical works to enhance their message.
