Production: We’re Probably Really Really Happy Right Now - Theatre Works, Feb 2021

Fear and restriction versus instinct and freedom. Can these forces co-exist from an individual, gendered, cultural perspective?

Inspired by performance art and experimental dance choreography, We’re Probably Really Really Happy Right Now puts gender, capitalism, racism, sexism and social and economic exploitation under a searing satirical lens.

Interrogating social structures and breaking apart archaic patriarchal views on gender and power structures, this play highlights the absurdity of the current environment we are in politically and socially. The play pokes fun at the absurdity of white power figures.

The future is now. Making change comes through powerful action. Visceral, physical, musical, high octane satirical theatre involving some of the most skilled actors in Melbourne, is how we want to evoke real change.

Surreal, irrational, non-linear, dynamic, volatile – We’re Probably Really Really Happy Right Now rejects tired relationship narratives, social stereotypes and conventional, gender-binary characters and psychologically-driven action. This play in an incendiary reaction to conformity.

Genre: Avante garde / post dramatic / satire / queer / feminist theatre
