The line up:

Control Pant Symphony by Natalie Wardle
A performance looking at how women constrict their bodies to fit in with societys ideal body types; exploring shapewear and tape that is placed over nipples to both cover and repress their form. 

King by Orange Skies Theatre
‘Hail! for
man is good that walks the earth
and makes it weep’
Three women find themselves at a point of no return; a moment of loss; an end before anything even began. Through text, dance and the conversations of close friends king finds us in this moment of ecological crisis, sat side by side, and wonders at how we might move forward.

The Colour Violet by Constanza Hola
A mix between Bob Dylan, Frida Kahlo and Virginia Woolf. That’s what Violeta Parra’s personality was. “The Colour Violet” is a piece inspired by one of the greatest Latin American songwriters of all time. It’s a journey, the journey of an extremely talented woman who is ahead of her time and struggles with the demons of her bipolar disorder.
