about the show.
The 80's are back! Immerse yourself in a time when velvet scrunchies, double denim and giant shoulder pads were all the rage. Take this acid washed trip down memory lane following six characters on a night out. Dancing to top pop tracks of the decade, throwing back to iconic music video moments inspired by jazz, lyrical and commercial dance.
This site-specific show will have you travelling through the space as the entire venue becomes a stage. Press play on a show with big hair, bold moves and a whole lot of fun to make you wanna bust a move!

“This show is a flawless visual spectacle in many forms, but most importantly, it provides audiences with a solid time of entertainment. The performers are able to seamlessly bounce between their routines and interact with the audience in ways that create an inviting and energetic space.”
Fatema Sitabkhan, Weekend Notes
“If I wasn’t dancing to the tunes or grinning from ear to ear, I was standing in awe of the local talent I was privy to be watching.”
“The vibe and feel throughout the show is of pure ecstatic, and time feels like it flies so fast whilst you’re watching the show which will make you want to re-live the show again to experience it from different angles.”
Your Local Hok, The Curious Writer
“If you want a brilliantly fun night out full of neon and cheese, Playback is the Fringe show for you.” Matt Gilbertson, The Advertiser
