Playlist – cancelled
A Pyt Fairfield Production
A hybrid of spoken phrase soundscapes and I inspiring choreographed motion.
PLAYLIST is Beyoncé meets the women’s marches meets Australian Idol. It’s full of suburban dreams and pop star fantasies. Five incredible young women talk about their favourite female pop stars and how these narratives inspire and shape their personal worlds in this genre-defying dance theatre work.
The extraordinary cast 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. Created by PYT Fairfield (Jump First, Ask Later), one of Australia’s most celebrated makers of brave and transformative new work that reflects the cultural diversity of contemporary Australia.
