Meme Girls

April 2015 Beckett Theatre, Malthouse Meme Girls / construct their identities in real time – and demand an audience. Experience the sort of post-gender, tongue-in-cheek spectacle that has made Ash Flanders a counter-culture hit. In Meme Girls, this pop-culture addict points his satirical sense of humour squarely at the desperate voices crying out for attention in our online neighbourhood. Packed with the LOLs of a great cat video, this non sequitur performance embraces the YouTube world, where life is ‘click-bait’ and views, shares and likes equate to happiness. Blurring the lines between performance art, drag and cabaret, Flanders presents a love letter to the bizarre and addictive women of YouTube who / broadcast their lives to an online abyss.
