This Really Is Too Much (Gracefool Collective in association with Underbelly Untapped)

By | Published on Sunday 27 August 2017

Part of the Underbelly Untapped season, ‘This Really Is Too Much’ takes on the ridiculous realities of what it means to be a woman today. As the audience filter in, the four performers are already sitting on the stage watching us, and from there we are treated to political speeches, crafts and a lot of salad. Taking a frank look at the stereotypes and power struggles women face in the world, this show calls out the absurd double standards. The choreography is slick, the punchlines dark and the laughs constant. This is a remarkable, genre-defying performance, superbly written and fantastically performed: it should be right at the top of your list of things to see.

Underbelly Cowgate, until 27 Aug.
