Clare Barron’s Pulitzer Prize nominated satire of ambition from the perspective of a girls’ dance group – starring Strictly Ballroom’s Tara Morice. Co-presented with Belvoir in association with Adelaide Festival.
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.”
