Powerhouse is a musical show about love, healing, queerness, gender identities and survival, about those powerful, personal moments of transition that music affords us – be it the autistic raver (Planningtorock’s sister) who found liberation through House music, the dedicated mother (Planningtorock’s mum) who used music as an armour, or the workingclass kid (Planningtorock themselves) who hustled their way into a full-time music career and found their authentic self along the way. Powerhouse is a empowering dance concert, self-reflexive, intimate, and emotionally charged with lush radical vulnerability.
Through storytelling, personally filmed biographical videos, spoken word, dance, stage design
and lighting, Planningtorock wanted to create a show that is not only a concert but an intimate
musical live experience that creates empathy and reflection, joy and comfort together with the
audience. The show will feature all the songs from the Powerhouse album and further showcase
new songs written especially for the event. Performing with Planningtorock will be a cast of
talented queer, non-binary and trans-identifying performers.
