Dance Nation

Somewhere in America, an army of teenage competitive dancers is plotting world domination. One routine at a time. As the national title looms and the dancers fight it out for the lead role, reality and fantasy blur in this award-winning pageant of ferocious girl power. Part-Dance Moms, part-Hunger Games, Dance Nation is a crushingly funny satire of ambition. The New York Times says it “conjures the passionate ambivalence of early adolescence with such being-there sharpness and poignancy that you’re not sure whether to cringe, cry or roar with happiness. Blazingly original and unsettlingly familiar.” Presented by State Theatre Company South Australia and Belvoir. Dance Nation comes to Scott Theatre for Adelaide Festival (Feb 21 to Mar 7) and Belvoir's Upstairs Theatre in Sydney (Mar 14 - Apr 12). Starring Mitchell Butel Elena Carapetis Emma Harvie Chika Ikogwe Yvette Lee Rebecca Massey Amber McMahon Tara Morice Tim Overton
