If you only head to one show with an agenda this Fringe, this is probably the one you want. Glittery Clittery is a dazzling, hilarious musical extravaganza about the patriarchy.
From the beginning, it introduces a cult-like feel, with Illuminati-esque taking to the stage and chanting backwards. However, the girls behind this masterpiece quickly move into the glittery party that was promised, a cult feminist disco.
Disco down with musical-comedy queens, Tessa Waters, Rowena Hutson, and Victoria Falconer, as they take you through an education of consent the patriarchy, the history of pockets and more in song and dance. (Including a fantastic moment where the word gasoline is rhymed with “yas kween”.)
The game show portion (using only consenting audience members, of course) of the show is the perfect exhibition of these ladies’ hilarious talents, as they play off each other and the audience perfectly, riffing along with whatever is thrown at them, and Falconer creates jingles from anatomical nicknames thrown at her by consenting contestants.
If a revolution without dancing is a revolution not worth having, then this is definitely the revolution that feminism, glitter, and the Adelaide Fringe needs!
