Please note, tickets are no longer on sale for this event.
War Paint is a theatre installation/live art performance, a process of 4 women getting ready in a private flat. The audience is in a voyeuristic situation that turns into an intimate performer-audience relationship. It explores themes of beauty, vulnerability, insecurity, fragility and strength. It questions the relationship of women to their bodies. The piece is also autobiographical, comprising a sound installation sharing personal stories of vulnerability, insecurity and shame about our bodies; stories that bare precarious parts of our internal character.
War Paint was commissioned and premiered at Let Me In Festival, a site specific performing arts festival in Berlin. It is also supported by the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama where Mummy’s Sloppy Honey met and formed.
This performance takes place in a flat near CPT. You will receive instructions on how to get to the location when you book your ticket. Regretably, this performance isn’t accessible for wheelchairs.
