Edythe Wooley: Did You Get That From Your Mother?

Thu 4 May 2017 // 20:00

Tickets: £10 / £8 concession

Did You Get That From Your Mother? swims through an old sepia soaked world of black and white movies and silent pictures that are shattered on the arrival of pop pink slut babies who refuse to be silenced. It is a surreal place, cast out of time and space where narrative histories collide. Here, Victorian velvet décor marries vintage Hollywood glamour and our present day desire for plastic, shiny new things.

This performance invites you to consider the consumption of a dinner that I’ll prepare on your arrival.

Dear audience, you’ve paid for this display, now let me entertain you.

Edythe Woolley’s work is feminist, provocative and strikingly visceral. She explores the grotesque through surreal and vivid elements, sculptural protrusions and physical representation. Her work embraces taboos and pushes the boundaries of society’s gendered constructions.

Did You Get That from Your Mother? was developed at The Bikeshed Theatre, New River Studios and Live Art Bistro and is supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
