DEMOLITION is a high-octane explosion of cabaret, theatre and social activism set to rebuild the world from the ashes-up. Think construction site meets protest party - a space where everyone is welcome!
In building DEMOLITION, we wanted to create a work that was both a wild reclamation of space and an exploration of the invisible safety work that so many women, femmes, non-binary, trans and marginalised people undertake on the daily (that feeling of walking home alone at night with keys in one hand, phone in the other; of being catcalled; of taking the long way home; of being racially profiled; of smiling and being nice).
In this time of chaos and uncertainty, we want this work to feel like a breath of fresh air. We are in a time where people everywhere are screaming “Enough is Enough”. We want to add our voices to this throng and share our diverse perspectives, stories and experiences.
We want to dare to imagine the future we know we want - a brave new post-pandemic world that is inclusive, intersectional and multi-layered.
We want our audience to feel fired up to make change, to use their voices to call out unsafe behaviour, to stand up for inequality, to build a new normal that listens both to the world First Nations people and the needs of our planet. Sounds big we know, but in a global pandemic where the paradigm is shifting, what better time is there to burn the old system down!!!
Smoke-o’s over! It’s time to WERK.
