Presented by Kelly Green
Kelly is sick and tired of being told that now she is a PhD student she no longer reads as working-class. She has learnt to talk the talk and walk the walk of class drag for middle-class people and spaces, to be heard and to be seen. Coz no one takes a CHAV seriously, do they?
CHAV is a neon, grey, diamante and sticky solo performance, taking you on an autobiographical journey where Kelly vomits up her anger and frustrations about being a working-class single mum, artist and academic. The piece playfully explores and comments on working-class female identity, and how we both lose and reclaim ourselves through our lived experience of class.
