Retail Therapy -

contemporary dance show ON NOW at Pitt St Theatre - 1 - 3 February 2023.


Announcing Retail Therapy™, a brand new contemporary dance performance coming to a store (theatre) near you!

Retail Therapy™ conjures into being the tropes, caricatures, and consequences of a consumption-fueled fever dream to create a tongue-in-cheek parody and a nightmarish portent of the perils of wanton consumerism. At times amusing, at times absurd, and at times alarming, Retail Therapy™ will lead you through the shadowy aisles of a Store™ after closing time, past the menacing mannequins and out into the back rooms, so you can find out where they hide the bodies what those Employees™ really get up to when the customers go home.

Be careful what you shop for…


Choreographed by Brandon Ross, in collaboration with movement artists Mel Duff, Georgia Foley, Sasha Matsumoto, and Dana Moore-Mudgway (Te Ātiawa, Rangitāne, Ngāi Tahu)

Lighting design and operation: Paul Bennett
Photography: Jacob Reynolds
Graphic Design: Lulu Qiu

Additional contributions by Rebecca Bernard, Alex Lye, and James Sandham.
Special thanks to all others who have contributed to the development process.
