Four girls, one stage…

PUSSY is a grotesquely comedic exploration of what it means to be a young woman growing up in today’s society. The four young female performers combine dance, song, animalistic sounds, Beyoncé lyrics and more to create the distinctly physical style of Tight Theatre. Through this physicality the four girls explore taboos of female adolescent sexuality, how society shapes female perceptions of appearance and the ultimate need for sexual satisfaction. PUSSY dives into the media-fueled, sexualized world of the teenage girl.

Exploring the uproarious contradictions of a culture in which a lipstick can be both worshipped and weaponized, where feminist popstars promise to ‘keep it tight, keep my figure right’, and the female body is a grotesque battle ground over which the public and private self fight for control. Tight Theatre are adding their personal voice to this multi-faceted discussion of femininity and feminism in society.

PUSSY. It’s not about cats.

Reviews

“The all-female production exposes the cultural contradictions women are expected to abide by” worthitornot.com ★★★★★

“Fun, tightly choreographed and imaginative” The Scotsman

“The most avant-garde show to grace the free festival” threeweeks.com

“Violent, angry, visceral and containing more energy than a bullet in a readied gun” Broadway Baby

Audience feedback

“Raw, compelling and very very clever. Go go go!”
