CoCA Presents: #FirstWorldWhiteGirls & Flaunt

Media Release:
Funny, Stylish & Naughty Entertainment  

Cairns, 13th April, 2016   Top class entertainment is on show in Cairns this week when the comedy cabaret #FirstWorldWhiteGirls and the sexy and insightful Claire Marshall-choreographed Flaunt take centre stage at the Centre of Contemporary Arts (CoCA).

The two acts are part of CoCA’s diverse program of events and touring productions in 2016.  

#FirstWorldWhiteGirls is a guilty pleasure show that has delighted audiences around the country as it satirises first world entitlement and the “me” generation.

The captivating performers, writer Judy Hainsworth and Kaitlin Oliver Parker, sing original songs and invite the audience to laugh along, vent and join in with a knowing wink on their politically incorrect and tragically funny expose of their first world pain.

“You know how it is ­– too many computer passwords, spray-tanning mishaps, Instagram envy, flat hair, unhealthy relationships with your phone and over-supportive parents – all is bared and nothing is spared,” Hainsworth said.

These spoiled songstresses invite you into their den of entitlement to laugh, vent, and share. Politically incorrect and tragically funny, this is a must-see for anyone who has ever had Instagram envy or regretted joining LinkedIn.

“One of the problems with first world problems is that people make you think you should downplay them. But first world problems are real problems. And we are here to help audiences with coping strategies for every situation,” Oliver Parker added tongue and cheek.

Catch First World White Girls on April 14. There is theatre seating ($29 and $24 concession) or cabaret seating ($32 single or $116 for a table of four).

In Flaunt, Claire Marshall’s work as a contemporary choreographer for the stage and screen comes to the fore. This new collaboration takes the smoke, mirrors and glamour of nightclubs and embeds it with a clever and insightful look at female sexuality and empowerment.

Claire is considered one of Queensland’s most innovative contemporary choreographers having worked with performers such as Kate Miller-Heidke and Megan Washington, John Butler Trio, Powderfinger and Tycho Brahe. Now she brings sexy back to the stage with Flaunt, as the dancers perform above and around the audience to a thrilling soundtrack. 

Flaunt will be performed on Friday and Saturday, April 22 and 23. Tickets cost $29 and $24 concession. The show contains sexual themes and is recommended for ages 15 and over. Haze effects and strobe lighting is used in this production.Book online at
