What if James Bond was a woman, trying to save the world, through dance? A feminist re-visioning of Bond, James Bond that debates and examines rape culture, hero worship and the inheritance of secrecy in our society. Using her signature mash-up of dance, theatre, storytelling and visual spectacle, creator/performer Meagan O’Shea draws on personal experience while situating it within a global context. Her ridiculously hilarious and devastatingly heartbreaking outlook reaches into the future to figure out some of the mess we’re in.

“Uplifting, energetic and totally out of the ordinary” –
Mooney on Theatre

 

About the artist/company:

Meagan O’Shea creates content driven dance-theatre work that seeks to relate seemingly disparate ideas in order to gain new perspective. Stand Up Dance works can include contemporary dance, stand up comedy, storytelling, games, clown, interactive installation and DIY visual spectacle.

Working across forms and borders, contemporary dance-theatre artist O’Shea activates people individually and collectively. Devising “Uplifting, energetic and totally out of the ordinary” performances for living rooms, theatres, public spaces – real and imagined, O’Shea examines ideas from unexpected angles engaging audiences on multiple levels.

Not new to Victoria, O’Shea first shared her unique dance-theatre mash-up with her charming Night Stills, at UNO in 2004, and returned later with “The Atomic Weight of Happiness” in 2012. More recently O’Shea and her company Stand Up Dance performed her many faceted “We Don’t Need Another Hero” at ROMP! in 2016. More info at standupdance.com
