Former Prime Minister Julia Gillard’s furious repudiation of then Opposition Leader Tony Abbot has become famous, resonating around the world. Now, in the lead up to the 10th anniversary of the so-called “misogyny speech”, contemporary dancer Natalie Allen will be presenting her own solo response.

Called Julia, the work is co-created in partnership with theatre producer Sally Richardson. It draws on material from the parliamentary record, media reportage and public commentary around the political leadership of Australia’s first female Prime Minister and is a portrait of female leadership, personality, power and the body politic.

Julia will run May 20 to 26 at the State Theatre Centre, WA. More info and tickets here.

Look out for our interview with Natalie next week!
