NAKED LADIES @ SummerWorks 2016

BUY TICKETS HERE

TORONTO PREMIERE! 

A layered history of naked female bodies in performance, NAKED LADIES asks tough questions around the nature of the female body and tries to understand its contested position between stigma and celebration. It brings together personal anecdotes – both traumatic and silly – alongside art history, feminist theory, and performance art, as the performer attempts a queer reckoning the/her own body. Between the naked and the nude, between forgetting fathers and remembering mothers, past sexual stigma and personal secrets, NAKED LADIES asks why women get naked on stage. Why, where, and for whom?

“This is a bold and brilliant one-woman show — filled with more questions than answers” ★★★★★ -Edmonton Journal

“Porn, porn porn porn, men want to f you, or any person they see naked, or did you miss that class in grade ten biology?” -Doreen Savoie, concerned citizen

“Maybe that’s what you are trying to do: reach through shame to seek worthiness? belonging? love? But why can’t you do one show that I can see?” -Thea’s mom

Drunk Girl: Edmonton Fringe 2016

DRUNK GIRL - WORLD PREMIER AT THE EDMONTON FRINGE FESTIVAL

Part theatre piece and part storytelling show, Drunk Girl explores the intimacy, tenacity, celebration and terror of women who drink. Drunk Girl is that moment when the party takes a turn, but it's too late to leave: were caught in a rollercoaster of calorie-counting keg parties, false feminisms, denial and love. This new work from the creator of fringe favourite, NAKED LADIES takes an honest look at how Drunk Girls occupy the contemporary imagination, as contemporary crisis, or radical feminist?
