You’ve found your place, your tribe, your Niche…

Niche is a pop star. She writes songs about what it’s like to be her, and it has made her famous.

Jodee doesn’t know about pop music. She knows about dangerous viruses. That’s why she’s been hired by Niche’s management.

Belonging is everything. Replication is more.

Powered by a pumping original soundtrack, directed by Nic Holas and created by Eryn Jean Norvill and Emily Tomlins (a tiny chorus), Niche is a surreal, irreverent and deeply affecting story about what we really want from celebrity in the digital age.

Elbow Room are a Melbourne-based theatre company committed to the rigorous development of the craft of writing and performance-making in order to test and strengthen the relationship between art and society, and the capacity of that relationship to create change.

“Elbow Room are still the country’s best advocates for a theatre of ideas and imagination.” ★★★★ – Daily Review
