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.

Any time Flanders puts his rhinestones in the spotlight, it’s as much a satire as homage … Flanders again proves himself an obscenely funny and enviably talented performer.
