About the Show
Candy Bowers and guests
The future needs imagining before it can become real. With the inimitable Candy Bowers leading the charge, steel yourself for Melbourne’s finest and fiercest as they share their manifestos for change through words, bodies and music: from female leadership and the legacy of Elders to the gender pay gap and the politics of privilege.
The voices delivering these visions range from feminist-teens to femme boys, warrior women to wise fools. Their manifestos come in all forms – prose, poetry, spoken word and movement – as they pinpoint the troubles that must be overcome and outline the tactics to do so. Wildly ambitious and willing to brave impossible odds, this night will burn bright.
