If there's not dancing at the revolution, I'm not coming is a rich contemporary performance collage of film scripts, pop songs, advertisements, elaborate costumes and dance—all stretched, teased, shattered and reassembled to challenge the treatment of women's bodies as spectacle in popular culture.
It uncovers the collective fantasies underneath these bodies, unapologetically intervenes, and explodes them into feminist confetti.
This is a party.
This is a poem.
This is a tiny call to arms.
''Postmodern performance art meets power pop politics-powerfully delivered. I loved it with a vengeance. I want to join her revolution.''
- Dorothy Max Prior, Total Theatre
''Julia Croft's exposé of the Hollywood male gaze is bonkers and inspired''
- Lucy Ribchester, The List
''One of the best pieces of theatre I have ever witnessed.… This is my call to arms…. for people in Auckland (for now) to witness this remarkable piece of theatre, and to challenge both themselves and others with the chords it strikes within them.''
- Matt Baker, Theatrescenes.co.nz
